How do I wear the smartLAB hrm W belt correctly?

When wearing the smartLAB hrm W, make sure that the left and right contacts are correctly attached to the belt/body. If this is not the case, only short signals are sent, after which no data will be sent. Pay attention to the mark next to the contact points on the back of the sensor. The R should be on the right side of the body, the L on the left side.

Why is the data transfer not working properly / no longer?

For a working data transmission, it is important that the sensor is correctly attached to the body with the belt. Care must be taken to ensure that the correct side of the sensor is on the side of the body. On the back of the sensor, an R and an L are counter at the contact points.

Make sure that the R is attached to the right side of the body and the L to the left side of the body.

If the data transfer suddenly stops working properly or no longer works at all, remove the sensor from the belt, rotate it and reattach it. Or you can simply rotate the entire belt so that R and L are correctly attached.

Now try to enable data transfer again during the training.

Why is the smartLAB hrm W not or not correctly displayed in my Bluetooth overview? Why is there no connection?

The smartLAB products are not connected via the Bluetooth settings of the mobile device, but directly via the respective app. If you are using an app that supports the connection of the respective smartLAB product, go to the device connection or device settings of the app and pair the app and smartLAB device via this way. If a connection is not possible, please contact our support team.

An overview of various apps that works with our smartLAB products can be found here.

IMPORTANT: There is a possibility that a request will appear in the app as to whether the device should be paired with the smartphone. Cancel this request because this type of pairing can interfere with the data exchange. If you have agreed to pair, please disconnect the device using the Bluetooth settings of the smartphone!

Can I pair the device with a Bluetooth and ANT + receiver at the same time?

The device simultaneously sends the Bluetooth and ANT signals, so that you can use 2 empers (app on mobile device with Bluetooth and sports watch with ANT+) at the same time.

Does the device also calculate calories?

No. This is calculated via the app or the paired device. The device only sends heart rate data.

Can this device be coupled with systems such as Elite Real tour, bkool, Tacx Trainer, xplova e5, bryton, sportiva, Trek or other systems with ANT +?

The smartLAB hrm W works with all devices on the market that support ANT+ heart rate devices. Check that your device supports an ANT+ heart rate monitor.

Can the heart rate monitor be paired with Garmin devices? Is the heart rate displayed on the Garmin device?

The smartLAB hrm W works with all Garmin devices that support ANT+ and Bluetooth heart rate devices. Check if your Garmin device supports a heart rate monitor and ANT+ or Bluetooth.

How does a heart rate monitor work?

A heart rate device is worn on the chest and the heart rates are measured. When you start recording on the APP, the data is saved until it is stopped. The data is then transferred to the portal. Calories are also calculated here. You can view the data under "Training" in the portal.

I wear a very large size. Will the belt still fit me?

The belt can be worn up to a diameter of 95 cm.
