How do I pair sensors to my ELEMNT Bolt?

Your ELEMNT is able to pair to almost any Bluetooth or ANT+ sensor to provide additional data including:

  • Power meters
  • Heart rate monitors
  • Speed sensors
  • Cadence sensors
  • Speed/Cadence sensors
  • Muscle oxygen sensors

 

Pairing with ELEMNT

Your ELEMNT will pair directly with both Bluetooth and ANT+ sensors.  For sensors that are dual band, the ELEMNT will default to Bluetooth unless you follow the steps to pair via ANT+.

To pair a sensor via Bluetooth:

  1. Wake up the sensor.
  2. Start by pressing the Menu button on the left side of the ELEMNT.
  3. Use the Down button on the right side of the ELEMNT to scroll down to "ADD SENSOR".  Press the Center button to select "ADD".
  4. Hold the ELEMNT near the sensor.  The ELEMNT will chose the sensor with the highest signal strength and attempt to pair.
  5. Verify the sensor shown is the correct one and press the Center button to select "SAVE".

 To pair a sensor via ANT+:

  1. Wake up the sensor.
  2. Start by pressing the Menu button on the left side of the ELEMNT.
  3. Use the Down button on the right side of the ELEMNT to scroll down to "ADD SENSOR".  Press the Center button to select "ADD".
  4. Press the Right button to select "MORE".
  5. Select the sensor type for the sensor you wish to pair.
  6. Hold the ELEMNT near the sensor and select the sensor based on signal strength or ANT ID.
  7. Press the Center button to select "SAVE".

 

Pairing with the Companion App

The ELEMNT Companion App can assist you with pairing your Bluetooth (iOS & Android) and ANT+ (Android only*) sensors.

To pair a sensor:

  1. On the Settings page of the Companion App, select "Set Up Sensors".
  2. Hold the device near the sensor and select the sensor based on signal strength, description, or ANT ID.
  3. Select "Save sensor?" to confirm the pairing.

 

*Android device must have an ANT+ receiver as part of the phone hardware.
