How to Replace a FitMachine Sensor

This article outlines how you can replace a FitMachine sensor that has been installed on your equipment.

1. Replace the Sensor

For consistency of data, when replacing a FitMachine sensor do your best to locate the new sensor in as close to the same position as the old sensor was positioned.


2. Change the MAC address

While replacing a sensor, follow the steps below using the FitMachine Mobile App to change the MAC address. 

It's not possible to use the Dashboard to change the MAC address.

Please note: the data from your previous FitMachine sensor will be unavailable on the dashboard once you change the MAC address using the Mobile App.

 If you wish to keep that data, first please read our Downloading FitMachine Data article.

Step 1

After logging into the app, find and select the equipment in the list of ‘My FitMachines’

Step 2

Press on the ‘Edit’ icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen

Step 3

Scroll down to the ‘Device Details’ heading and tap on the MAC Address field

Step 4

Scan the QR code of the new FitMachine and then press Save in the top right-hand corner of the screen

Step 5

Press the Save button again in the top right-hand corner of the screen to complete the replacement process.

Note: For the next step, you need to have Bluetooth turned on, and be within range of the FitMachine sensor.

Step 6

Click on WiFi Status to run a connectivity test.

Running a connectivity test makes sure the sensor is still able to send samples to the cloud.
