Unpairing for iOS Users:
Selecting UNPAIR ELEMNT from the companion app while the ELEMNT is still connected will bring up a prompt recognising that the ELEMNT is still connected to the iPhone and will ask whether you would like to pair again (does not require a QR code). Accept, and the ELEMNT will pair to the companion app.
Alternatively, you may completely remove the ELEMNT and begin again:
- On the ELEMNT, open the Settings menu and select Forget Phone. This will forget the phone and cause the ELEMNT to reboot and return to the default workout screen. (If you have the companion app open, you may notice during this time that the ELEMNT companion app will say that it is searching.)
- Open the ELEMNT Settings menu again, and select Pair Phone. A QR code will be displayed.
- Open the companion app and select Unpair ELEMNT (either from the Settings menu, or displayed on screen if the companion app is already open). The companion app will recommend you also remove the pairing from the iPhone Bluetooth menu* and then prompt you to scan the QR code displayed on the ELEMNT.
- Hold the ELEMNT up to the phone camera to scan the QR code.
- A prompt will appear on the companion app requesting to pair the ELEMNT with your phone. Select Pair to complete the pairing process. If you do not select Pair (allow a timeout) or you select Cancel, pairing will not proceed and you will need to select Pair Phone again on the ELEMNT.
*NOTE: Although recommended, removing the existing pairing from your phone (accessible via the iOS bluetooth settings) is not essential. You will notice that if you do not remove this pairing, multiple entries will appear in your My Devices listing. These additional (defunct) entries can be deleted at any time. To do this, open the phone Settings menu, access the Bluetooth menu and forget the unwanted ELEMNT pairing from My Devices.
