How to Use

Pairing a Chest Belt with a PM4 or PM5

Before the Performance Monitor (PM) can detect your heart rate from a chest belt, you need to pair the ID of the chest belt with your PM. If you use a LogCard or USB flash drive with your PM, your chest belt ID can be saved to that device, so you should only have to perform this pairing once. If you do not use a LogCard or USB flash drive with your PM, you will need to repeat the pairing process every time you row or ski.

Before attempting to pair a chest belt with a PM4 or PM5, please ensure you are using compatible equipment.

Pairing Without a LogCard or
USB Flash Drive

  1. Put the chest belt on, and press any button on the Performance Monitor (PM) to power it up.
  2. On the Main Menu, select More Options.
  3. Select Connect Heart Rate. Within 5–10 seconds, the PM will list identification information for any chest belt it finds. This information may include brand or model information and/or an ID number.
  4. Choose the ID that corresponds to your chest belt. (If you are unsure, check the chest belt ID, which is typically listed on the back of the belt.)
  5. Select Confirm.

Pairing with a LogCard or
USB Flash Drive

  1. Put the chest belt on, and press any button on the Performance Monitor (PM) to power it up.
  2. Insert your LogCard or USB flash drive into the monitor. If you are using a USB flash drive, wait for the PM to display the Welcome screen with your user name before moving to the next step.
  3. On the Main Menu, select More Options.
  4. Select Connect Heart Rate. Within 5–10 seconds, the PM will list identification information of any chest belt it finds. This information may include brand or model information and/or an ID number.
  5. Choose the ID that corresponds to your chest belt. (If you are unsure, check the chest belt ID, which is typically listed on the back of the belt.)
  6. Select Remember Belt. This saves your chest belt's ID to your LogCard/USB flash drive so that the PM automatically detects your chest belt in the future.
