Using a New Transmitter

If you purchase a new WearLink+ Hybrid transmitter or a new WearLink W.I.N.D. transmitter as an accessory, it has to be introduced to the training computer. This is called pairing and takes only a few seconds. Pairing ensures that your training computer receives signals from your accessory only, and enables disturbance-free training in a group.

Please note that WearLink W.I.N.D. transmitter does not measure heart rate in water.
