Bluetooth Heart Rate Monitor

This article will show you how to set up TrainerRoad to record your heart-rate readings. This process applies whether you have your workout type set to Heart Rate or Power/VirtualPower.

This article will also help troubleshoot any connection issues you are experiencing with your heart-rate monitor and TrainerRoad. If you are having trouble connecting an ANT+ heart-rate monitor check out this link on ANT+ Heart-Rate Monitors.

We'll use the Wahoo TICKR in this example since it's one of the most used Bluetooth heart rate monitors with TrainerRoad.
