NOTE: The TICKR Heart Rate Monitor uses a Blue and Red LED to give instant feedback to the user during the pairing process. These LEDs operate for about 30 seconds to conserve battery. The Red LED flashes each time a heartbeat is detected. The Blue LED represents your connection state and has three modes:

  • Slow Blink (about once every second): TICKR is awake and not paired
  • 3x Flash: Occurs the instant a connection is made.
  • Quick Blink (about twice every second): TICKR 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.
