Smartphones or tablets can be compatible with the latest generation Elite trainers (with ANT + or Bluetooth Smart protocols) if they have connectivity with these protocols.
Depending on the operating system of your device, you can check for compatibility.
Two apps can be downloaded to check instantly if the device has these protocols
Bluetooth Smart = BLE Checker
ANT+ = ANT Tester
Smartphone compatible ( it is not necessary any adaptor or external dongle )
Smartphone not compatible
It is necessary to check the manufacturer's website Apple or follow this simple rule:
Bluetooth Smart = iPad 3 and upper and iPhone 5 and upper
ANT + = no iOS device has ANT connectivity
Note: to extend/add the ANT+ connectivity ( for example in case of using speed/cadence or HR belt ANT + sensors like Garmin/Echowell ), you need to buy the following accessories ( concerning the device you have ):
- Wahoo ANT+ 30 PINS dongle ( available on our shopelite website or in the market )
- ORIGINAL Apple Lightning-30Pins Adapter ( necessary in case of iPhone 5 and later, iPad 3 and later )
LATEST IOS VERSION DOESN'T SUPPORT 100% THESE DEVICES, SO WE DON'T SUGGEST THEM, SOMETIMES THEY WORK, SOMETIMES NOT. PLEASE PREFERE THE BLUETOOTH SOLUTION IF POSSIBLE
