OTHER FEATURES AND IMPORTANT NOTES

Charging your ELEMNT:

  1. Charge the ELEMNT with the micro USB cable provided or a similar cable. The ELEMNT operates for up to 16 hours per charge.
  2. Gently remove the silicon dust cap covering the charging port on your ELEMNT.
  3. Insert the plug of the Micro USB cable into the charging port.
  4. Connect the Micro USB cable to a suitable power source to charge. e.g. a computer USB port, or if using in conjunction with an AC adapter, to a wall outlet.
  5. Avoid using Apple brand AC charging adapters - these may fail to provide a full charge.
  6. When fully charged, remove the Micro USB cable from the charging port.
  7. Replace the silicon dust cap, ensuring a firm seal to keep dust and moisture out.
  8. For additional battery saving advice, please see ELEMNT Battery Help and Tips

Note: For best results and battery life, always charge to full capacity. Clean and dry the charging port and surrounding area thoroughly if it becomes wet or dirty. Do not plug into a power source until the area is free of moisture or debris. Corrosion or device failure may occur with improper use.

Connecting Multiple Bikes and Sensors:

When multiple sensors of the same type are connected to the ELEMNT at once, data from the highest quality connection (typically the closest sensor) alone will be used. If one sensor should fail, the ELEMNT will automatically switch to receive data from the next-best connected data source. In other words, it's no problem to pair sensors from multiple bikes to a single ELEMNT since the ELEMNT only uses data from the closest paired sensor for each data type.

Temperature Measurements:

The ELEMNT measures temperature during your workout, but occasionally may display temperatures that differ from the true temperature of your surroundings. For example, this may occur when the device is placed in direct sunlight, is being charged via an external battery or is subject to sudden changes in temperature.

Troubleshooting:

Please see our expansive and easy to use ELEMNT Instant Help Guide for setup help, feature walkthroughs, and advanced troubleshooting, or contact our support team where we're always happy to lend a hand.
