So you want your coach to help you keep your Heart Rate Zones in check during the workout? We've got you covered.
Step One: To ensure you can connect your Heart Rate monitor to Gixo make sure you have the right HR monitor to sync with your cell phone.
If you own an iPhone you'll want to make sure you have a Heart Rate Monitor that is bluetooth.
If you own an Android mobile device you'll need to have a Heart Rate monitor that is ANT+ (which is the technology that syncs your heart rate monitor with external devices such as your phone).
An ANT+ heart rate monitor will not correctly sync with an iPhone and your coach will not get the reading.

Step Two: Turn on/Strap on your heart rate monitor. Important: do NOT sync/connect your heart rate monitor with your phone via bluetooth. Also make sure that your heart rate monitor is not connected to any other external device. The Gixo app will automatically detect and connect to your heart rate monitor at the start of the Cardio segments in class. Your coach will then see your heart rate reading. Message your coach directly to confirm the connection is established and that he or she is getting your heart rate reading.
