First Steps with your CORE sensor
Congratulations on getting your new CORE sensor... let's get you setup.
Unbox your CORE sensor
Inside the box will find the following, don't forget to look under the black cardboard insert:
• CORE sensor
• 6 Adhesive Patches
• 2 Securing Clips
• Magnetic USB Charging Cable
• Quick Start Guide
• Product information sheet
Connect the charging cable to any USB power source (e.g. phone charger or computer). The magnetic end of the cable will attach easily in the right position
Turn on the CORE sensor
Disconnect the charging cable and shake CORE until the green light starts blinking.
This indicates that CORE has begun to measure and that it’s ready to connect with your smartphone, smartwatch or sports computer.
Download the CORE App
Download and install the CORE App on your smartphone.
Create an account and connect your CORE sensor
Start the CORE app and follow on-screen instructions. Bluetooth needs to be enabled on your smart phone!
The CORE App lets you:
• Connect to the CORE sensor
• View your temperature data
• Manage settings and updates
• Pair to a Heart Rate Monitor
For Sports, pair to a Heart Rate Monitor
For sports activity the CORE sensor should be paired with a heart rate monitor to ensure the best accuracy. Get the most our of the CORE sensor with the Fast Start Guide for Sports.
Wearing the CORE sensor
Position CORE on the torso / chest area, about 20cm below the armpit using a heart rate monitor strap or the provided medical patches for the most accurate core body temperature measurements.
CORE can be worn elsewhere on the body such as on the arm or wrist however measurement accuracy can be reduced. When CORE is mounted on a strap, use the black plastic clips so securely fasten it.
Viewing & Recording Data
The CORE sensor can continuously measure and broadcast your core body temperature to your paired sports devices and the CORE App.
The most popular bike computers and sports watches including Garmin, Wahoo, COROS, Suunto and Hammerhead can be paired via ANT+ and Bluetooth and display and record real-time data from the CORE sensor.
More in the Set-up Guides
The CORE sensor synchronises data with the CORE App for iOS and Android, your current and historical data is permanently saved along with advanced metrics. Learn more.
