Pairing Food Pod

I can't seem to pair my foot pod, even though it came in the box with my watch. I also don't see the red light blinking like the instructions say.

I had the same issue, it turned out to be a weak battery. Also when you replace the battery make sure it is making proper contact with terminal in the foot pod.

Could I use the Nike+ pod together with a Garmin forerunner 210?


Nope: Different types of signals.

That being said, there is a foot pod that Garmin makes if you want that type of data sensor. The GPS in the 210 is more accurate than the Nike+ pod, and the Garmin foot pod is about equally accurate with the 210, but allows you to use the watch when there is no GPS signal

T6C failed after working OK for 1 day


Try re-pairing the belt pod with the wrist-watch computer. Below text comes from page 37 of the T6c users manual.

If you replace the belt battery or are having troubles with the signal reception, you need to re-pair your belt with your Suunto t6c.

To re-pair the belt:
1. Remove the belt battery
2. Push the (new) battery into the compartment positive side down.
3. In your Suunto t6c, enter the settings menu and enter GENERAL.
4. Scroll to PAIR with [Lap +] and [Light -] and enter with [Mode].
5. Scroll to HR BELT with [Lap +] and [Light -].
6. Activate pairing with [Mode].
7. Put the battery in with the positive side up and close the cover.

"LoBATT" stays on in TIME mode (doesn't flash) ?


"lobatt" display is the watch battery. The foot pod uses the LED to indicate low battery and the heart rate monitor wont give a reading.

Garmin won't recognize footpod


As your Forerunner 50 first time was syncronized with your husbands footpod, now it is linked to him and that's why it can't find yours. You may even have to reinstall software, but I'm not sure. Try this link and you may find wht you are looking for:

Can't pair garmin forerunner 50 with hrm and food pod


First you have to assume the battery that comes with your HRM would be new - keep in mind that it may be stored in the warehouse for many moons.
Given that, open and take out the battery - that should make a hard reset on the HRM itself. Restore the battery and try the manual pairing again.
The heart icon should pop up again.

Otherwise, you have to suspect the battery is low and need to be replaced.

Good luck

Can`t pair Garmin Forerunner 50 with footpod


Hi,

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
