How to connect my cadence sensor or fitness machine to Holofit?

Make sure that:

  • your fitness machine has a supported Bluetooth protocol such as FTMS (FiTness Machine Service protocol). Otherwise, the connection will not be established;
  • you pedal/row for 10-15 seconds before trying to connect the sensor or fitness machine to HOLOFIT;
  • the Nearby devices permission is enabled (Oculus Lobby > Apps > hover over HOLOFIT until you see three dots > Permissions > enable Nearby Devices);
  • your dual-mode sensor (cadence + speed sensor) is using the cadence mode, not the speed mode.
    In the case of Magene S3+ sensors, the red light is for cadence mode, the green light is for speed mode. To change the mode, simply, take out and re-insert the battery.


    1. From the HOLOFIT menu, click on the settings icon (cogwheel):
    2. Select HOLOFIT Setup:
    3. Select Fitnessgerät:
    4. Select Bluetooth machine:
    5. After your fitness machine or cadence sensor appears in the list of available Bluetooth devices, click on it to establish the connection. If you do not see your fitness machine or cadence sensor, click on the Refresh button:
    6. A success message should appear shortly:
