Will the Alpha work with my Android or iPhone?

The Alpha has the ability to communicate over BT 4.0 protocols. It sends out its data using the standard Heart Rate Profiles to any devices that support these protocols and Profiles.

While it won't work "out of the box" to iPhone 4s, iPhone 5/5s or Android it will work with applications that support the BT 4.0 Heart Rate Profile.

iPhone apps that support BT4.0 HR Profile include:

  • MapMyFitness
  • Runkeeper
  • Strava

Android apps that support BTLE HR Profile include:

  • Android apps are still being optimized for BT 4.0 pairing. We appreciate your patience.
