Will it work with the phone in a backpack?

I'd like to use this for mountain biking, but I keep my phone in my backpack while riding. Will it have any issues staying connected? I've heard of Bluetooth HR straps from other companies having this problem.

    I've used it with the phone in my jacket or trouser pocket without any problem, so I wouldn't expect a backpack to offer any other problems.

  • Yes! There should be no problem as long as you're within 10 feet of the Blue HR (and in a backpack that should be no problem). Try to keep it in an outer pocket to minimize any interference.
