    Hi Brano,

    This is the HRM that works with Bluetooth 4.0 - or Bluetooth Smart/Bluetooth Low Energy as it's also called.

    If you have the product then you just need the miCoach App 2.1.1 or newer. When you have Bluettooth turned on, the App will search for and connect with the HRM.

    The other HRM from miCoach is ANT+ based (this is sold with a CONNECT dongle). You can easily tell the difference as the adidas logos are a different colour.

    Green for the new BTLE HRM and White for the older ANT+ device.

    Hope this helps.

  • Yes, Bluetooth Smart = Bluetooth Low Energy (BTLE), which is a feature of Bluetooth 4.0.
