Your cycling computer has been “taught” to work together with the Polar WearLink W.I.N.D. transmitter, speed, cadence and power sensors to measure heart rate, speed, cadence, power and distance data. In other words, your cycling computer receives signals from your transmitter and cyclings sensors only, and enables disturbance-free exercise in a group.
If you purchase a new transmitter or cycling sensor, they have to be introduced to the cycling computer. This is called teaching and takes only a few seconds.
Before entering an event, make sure to perform the teaching process at home. This is to prevent interference due to the long-range data transmission.
Teach a new transmitter
In time mode, press Start > New WearLink found, Teach new WearLink?
Wear the transmitter and make sure that you are not near (20 m/66 ft) other Polar WearLink W.I.N.D. transmitters.In time mode, press Start. The cycling computer starts searching for the transmitter signal.
Once the new transmitter is identified, New WearLink found, Teach new WearLink? is displayed.
- Select YES to confirm teaching. Completed! is displayed. Start exercise recording by pressing OK.
- Select NO to cancel teaching.
Teach a new speed sensor
1. Select Speed/Cadence/Power On.
2. Teach new sensor? is displayed. Select Yes.
3. Start test drive is displayed. Start to cycle. Teaching.. is displayed.
4. When the cycling computer has found the sensor, Completed is displayed. Press OK.
Tip: After teaching the speed sensor once to the cycling computer, you don’t have to do it again even if speed is turned off some times. When the speed sensor is turned on next time, the Teach new sensor? is displayed. Select No and monitor goes into the On/Off mode, select On and the already earlier taught speed sensor is taken into use. If Yes is selected, the monitor goes into teaching mode.
Teach a new cadence Sensor
Select Settings > Bike > Bike1 > Cadence
Select > On > Teach new sensor? is displayed
Select Yes to confirm teaching > Start test drive
Make sure you are not near (20 m/66 ft) other cadence sensors. > Completed! is displayed
Select No to cancel teaching. The cycling computer will not be able to measure cadence data.
Teach a new Power Output Sensor
Settings > Bike > Bike 1 > Power On/Off > OK
Power > On > Teach new sensor?
Select Yes to confirm teaching > Start test drive > Completed! is displayed
Select No to cancel teaching. The cycling computer will not be able to measure power data.
Power > Off > Remove power? is displayed > OK.
TIP: If you choose Remove Power the Power data will be removed from all the displays concerning the Bike 1.
Up to 10 sensors can be stored in your cycling computer's memory:
1 WearLink W.I.N.D.
1 Speed sensor, 1 Cadence sensor and 1 Power sensor for each bike setting (Bike 1, Bike 2 and Bike 3).
If you teach a new speed/cadence/power sensor to one of your Bikes the previously taught speed sensor will be replaced by a new one.
