Runner/MultiSport watch external HR monitor pairing
The Rhythm+ gave up the ghost recently (case cracked around button and allowed water in) so I simply ordered another identical monitor. The new monitor will not pair up with either of the two watches.
It describes in the manual how once it's paired it will remember that specific monitor each time it's started up (make sense as it needs to discriminate in case of other monitors around). But it never makes any mention of how to 'unpair' so that a new monitor can be paired up for use.
Turning the HR monitor setting in the "Sensors" menu to off and then back on does not seem to reset this pairing (heart shaped symbol on watch just flashes endlessly with new monitor). I've also done a factory reset because I figures surely that would erase the pairing, but to no avail. Both my Runner and MultiSport respond the same to this new monitor (endless flashing).
Yes, I know to isolate the watch from any other blue-tooth sensors and separately the new HR sensor pairs up with other blue-tooth devices and functions just fine.
