Pairing your BTLE Heart Rate Monitor (HRM) to your Android device is as simple as following these steps!

1. Read your HRM manual to see where to attach the device (chest/wrist/arm). Make sure it is on tight enough so it won't slip!

2. Open up your phone settings and turn on Bluetooth (if you are pairing a BTLE HRM, make sure this is NOT paired with phone already)

  • 2A. If you are using a Standard Bluetooth HRM, you will need to scan for the HRM from your phone's Bluetooth settings and pair on this screen
  • 2B. If you are using a BTLE HRM, do not pair the HRM to your phone and proceed to step 3

3. Open up the Runkeeper app and go to the "Start" tab

4. From the "Start" tab click on the heart icon with the exclamation point in the lower right hand corner

5. Select your HRM from the menu (If you do not see your HRM listed, make sure your Bluetooth is toggled on and your device is firmly attached to your body)

6. Once your HRM is properly connected, the heart icon in the lower right hand corner will no longer have an exclamation point and will pulsate to indicate it is connected! 

7. If you want your audio cues to include your heart rate information, go into your app settings

8. Click "Audio Cues" from the settings page and select which metrics you would like the app to announce

9. Go back to the "Start" tab and start your activity!

10. Once you are finished with your activity you can view a summary of your heart rate data! 

11. Simply click on the "Charts" tab and you can see a graph of your heart rate vs. your elevation and pace! (If you don't see your heart rate information right away, simply return to the previous screen and then revisit the "Charts" tab). 

 **Runkeeper attaches your HRM data to GPS points so we can track your heart rate at each distance of your activity! Therefore you must be outdoors with GPS signal to track your heart rate**
