Why isn't my iPhone not recognizing the BLUE Heart Rate Strap?
The most common reason for not synching strap and iPhone is other apps operating in the background. Other apps that use Bluetooth sensors can interfere. Rebooting the iPhone will kill these other apps. If this does not work try resetting the chest strap. To reset chest strap, remove the BLUE battery from the strap for 2 minutes and then replace.
