How can I manually pair sensors?

The first time you connect a wireless sensor to your watch using ANT‍+® or Bluetooth® technology, you must pair the watch and sensor. If the sensor has both ANT‍+ and Bluetooth technology, Garmin® recommends that you pair using ANT‍+ technology. After they are paired, the watch connects to the sensor automatically when you start an activity and the sensor is active and within range.

  1. Bring the watch within 3 m (10 ft.) of the sensor.
    NOTE: Stay 10 m (33 ft.) away from other wireless sensors while pairing.
  2. If you are pairing a heart rate monitor, put on the heart rate monitor.

    The heart rate monitor does not send or receive data until you put it on.

  3. Hold Menu symbol.
  4. Select Sensors & Accessories > Add New.
  5. Select an option:
    • Select Search All.

    • Select your sensor type.

    After the sensor is paired with your watch, the sensor status changes from Searching to Connected. Sensor data appears in the data screen loop or a custom data field.
