Setup

Setup

This setup guide is intended to assist with installing the Blue SC and pairing to the Wahoo Fitness app.

How to install the Wahoo Blue SC

  • Place the sensor on the rear chain stay of your bike, near the pedal. The logo should be facing up and the arm of the sensor should be inside the rear chain stay, facing down. You may need to loosen the arm of the sensor with a 2mm allen wrench to move it into the correct position.
  • Secure the sensor in place with the provided rubber band or zip-ties, whichever is preferred. If using zip-ties, do not completely tighten yet, as the magnets still need to be aligned before completely securing the sensor in place. We recommend using the zip-ties for the most secure connection.
  • Take off the pedal on the same side and slip the pedal magnet onto the crank, magnet facing in towards the sensor. Align so that the magnet will pass by the indicator line on the body of the Wahoo Blue SC sensor. The magnet will have to pass within 1/8 inch (about 4mm) to get a reading. As such, adjust the position of the sensor and/or magnet if required. Replace your pedal.
  • Screw the wheel magnet onto any spoke on your back wheel, facing in towards the sensor. Align so that the magnet will pass by the indicator line on the arm of the Wahoo Blue SC sensor. The magnet will have to pass within 1/8 inch (about 4mm) to get a reading. Once again, adjust the position of the sensor and/or magnet if required. Tighten the magnet in place on the spoke. Once satisfied with the magnet positioning, tighten and snip the ends of the zip-ties (if using).

NOTE: The Blue SC speed and cadence sensor uses a Blue and Red LED to give instant feedback to the user during the pairing process. These LEDs operate for about 30 seconds before shutting off to conserve battery. The Red LED flashes with a single blink for the crank, a double blink for the wheel. The Blue LED represents your connection state and has three modes:

  • Slow Blink (about once every second): Blue SC is awake and not paired.
  • 4x Flash: Occurs the instant a connection is made.
  • Quick Blink (about twice every second): Blue SC is paired to a device.

If a firmware update is available for your sensor, the Wahoo Fitness app will now prompt you to proceed with performing an update. If you do not, the update may be performed later. Sensors with updates available will appear in the menu of Saved Sensors marked with a badge to indicate the update is available but not installed.

Not Working?

WANT TO CONNECT TO ANOTHER APP?

This product is compatible with a number of third party apps. However, each app connects to sensors a little differently. As a general rule: Open the compatible app you would like to use and find the settings. Look for "connect to sensor" or another similar option. You must connect each sensor separately for each app you use.

NOTE: Bluetooth devices can only pair to one app at a time. Make sure to close any background apps that may be using the sensor before connecting to a new app.

ices can only pair to one app at a time. Make sure to close any background apps that may be using the sensor before connecting to a new app.
