The Apple Watch serves as an innovative and amazing tool for a handful of things including getting healthier. Users can make the most use of the Activity, Workout, and various Fitness apps to be able to challenge themselves as well as keep track of their progress with just a flick of their wrist.
To make things even better, the Apple Watch supports Bluetooth-enabled strap or monitor. This means that you are allowed to pair your Watch wirelessly to external heart bit readers like Bluetooth chest straps so that you can take your fitness routine to a whole new level. An external heart bit reader will help you stay fairly close to your stats and progress during the workout. And in this post, we will cover how to pair an external heart bit reader to Apple Watch.
Before getting started, note that though the Watch does support lots of Bluetooth-enabled straps, it may not support all of them. In fact, straps integrated with older legacy Bluetooth technology may not be discoverable. Plus, you are not able to pair an external monitor to two devices at the same time, so be sure not to pair the Apple Watch with your iPhone or it can’t connect but recognize your monitor.
Now, just take a look at how to pair an external heart bit reader to Apple Watch:
Step 1: You need to ensure that your heart bit reader is recognizable.
Step 2: On your Apple Watch, open the Settings app.
Step 3: Select Bluetooth.
Step 4: Select your device’s name under the Health Devices section as it shows up so you can pair it.
That’s it. Note that you will only see the heart bit data via this connection. Heart rate is among many factors that Apple uses to measure your activity and exercise. It will be able to choose the most appropriate inputs for that activity based on your work out.
