Why won't my TP3 pair to my phone?
To ensure that your TP3 pairs directly to the app you have downloaded please ensure you have Bluetooth switched on on your device before attempting to pair.
Do I need to pair to my phone first?
No, you do not need to pair the TP3 to your phone first, because the TP3 uses Bluetooth Smart it is only required to pair to the app on your phone.
I am struggling to get a heart rate reading from the TP3 and it doesn't show up under the list of sensors?
This can be caused by a weak ECG signal from the body, by using a small amount of water, saliva or electrode gel on the contact point between the skin and electrodes on the chest belt it can help improve the connection and activate your TP3.
Can I pair my TP3 with another phone or app?
Yes your TP3 can be paired with more than one phone/apps. If you are switching between devices or apps then you can still use your TP3 for different devices. Simply pair your TP3 in the same way as before and you now have a heart rate monitor for multiple devices.

Yes your TP3 is designed to work simultaneously using Bluetooth Smart to send data to your phone app and using ANT+ to send data to your bike computer or similar ANT+ device.
Can I pair my TP3 with multiple apps and phones at once?
If just using Bluetooth Smart then Unfortunately not, once your TP3 is paired to the app on your phone it cannot be paired to another device while in use. However TP3 can be paired to different apps and devices if one device is paired via Bluetooth Smart and the other app/device is paired via ANT+.
