Question about Garmin Forerunner 50
I already own a Forerunner 50 with HRM but wanted a footpod so bought a whole new watch and footpod package as it was much cheaper than the footpod alone. The problem is that I can`t pair the new footpod with my existing watch with the HRM. Obviously I don`t want to go out with 2 watches on so is there anyway I can un-pair the footpod with the watch it came with and then pair it to my existing watch
I've been having the same problem. I couldn't pair my footpod, but my heart rate monitor was working. I've only had the 50 for about eight weeks.
I reset the watch, holding view mode and Start/Stop at the same time.
This didn't do any good.
I swapped the battery in the HRM with that in the foot pod. The foot pod synched the HRM didn't.
Solution duff battery. I'd change yours it will probably do the trick.
Hope it helps

Yes, was indeed a (near) dead battery in our footpod. Replaced it with a new one (couple of bucks) and she paired up nearly straight away to our Garmin Forerunner 405. I think part of the problem is that to turn on the footpod, you just give it a shake. This probably means it's being continually activated while being distributed from Garmin warehouse to the shop to end user, so when you finally get it (ordered ours from Amazon) the battery is fairly low on power?
