IN THE BOX
1. Whats In The Box
USB charging cable is included in the small gray box labeled accessories.
Wall charging block not included, but you use any standard cellphone charger.

CHARGE SENSORS FIRST
HOW TO CHARGE YOUR SENSORS
We know you are excited to test those sensors, but please make sure they are fully charged before your connect them for the first time. A full charge takes 45-60 min. The Charging Case & USB cable are included. You can charge to a laptop/desktop computer, or to an outlet using your cellphone charging block.
HOW TO USE THE CHARGING CASE
Sensors go in face up. The 3 dots on the bottom need to align with the inside of the charger.
Make sure the sensors are inserted correctly. Blue Power buttons are facing in.
Close the lid properly. The USB cable plugs into the back of the case.
Any standard USB charging block for a cellphone or tablet will work. Charge 45-60 min.
While plugged in, the sensors will blink red to show they are actively charging.
When complete, they will stop blinking, and glow steady red.
POWER ON / OFF
3. Power on & off Sensors
THE BLUE POWER BUTTON
Remember to charge your sensors before the first use. Each sensor has 1 blue power button used for both ON & OFF. There is a different sequence for ONvs OFF. Hint: you may need to press down firmly.
TURNING SENSORS ON
HOLD DOWN FOR 4 SECONDS
TURNING SENSORS ON
HOLD DOWN FOR 4 SECONDS1...2...3...4
To turn a sensor on, hold down the blue power button ﬁrmly for 4 seconds. Count out 1,2,3,4 so you hold it down long enough. You may need to press hard. When it is on, it will start blinking green. If it doesn’t start, try pressing down a little harder, and a little longer.
TURNING SENSORS OFF
PRESS THREE TIMES IN A ROW CLICK...CLICK...CLICK...WAIT

Make sure you turn both sensors oﬀ when you are done using them. To turn each sensor oﬀ, press the blue power button 3 times, within 2 seconds … click click click. When it turns oﬀ, it will blink rapidly 6 times, then stop. If they don’t turn oﬀ, try pressing down more ﬁrmly, and clicking faster.
LED INDICATOR LIGHTS: ON VS CONNECTED
Don’t worry, we will get to this later… But here is a quick note on the sensor LED colors.
Green means a sensoris ON and Waiting to Connect with the App.
Blue means a sensoris ON, Connected, & ready to for you to punch.
Sensors are protected from power surges. If there are any sudden voltage changes the sensors will shut oﬀ to preserve their components. You must reset the sensor in order to power the sensor back on. To reset them, put both sensors in the charger case, close the lid, and ﬁrmly press the blue button on the bottom of the case.
OUTSIDE THE USA
Diﬀerent countries provide diﬀerent voltage in basic household electric outlets. If you are outside the USA, we suggest charging via a desktop or laptop to avoid damage from high voltage outlets.

BASIC PROFILE QUESTIONS

DETERMINING YOUR LEVEL
Your skill level will help us better categorize your experience in striking. Your performance ranking will be based on specific criteria we expect you to meet with that skill level. It will be beneficial for you to give an accurate assessment of your own skills and we will help you keep track along the way.
DETERMINING YOUR STANCE
The two Stances are as follows:
Traditional – This is typically used by Right hand dominant boxers. Your left foot will be closest to the heavy bag, leaving your most powerful punch (right hand) to have the longest distance to travel and generate power.
Non-Traditional (Southpaw) – Typically used by Left hand dominant boxers. Place your Right foot closest to the heavy bag, leaving your most powerful punch (left hand) to have the longest distance to travel and generate power.
WE NEED YOUR EXACT WEIGHT
Your body weight is very important to track throughout your usage of the app. We suggesting updating your weight as often as you can, but at least 2 times per month.
DON’T HAVE SENSORS YET?
You can still use the app even without sensors. You will have access to the Round Timer in the Training Routines section. This will act as your Bell and Round Timer for your workouts in the gym. You can also view videos and Socialize with your friends. Of course, without sensors you will not be able to receive get performance feedback. You can change this in settings, if you do decide to purchase sensors.
6. Connect Your Sensors
SENSOR SETUP TUTORIAL
The sensor setup tutorial is available whenever you are ready. We have made it super easy to get set up, by walking you through each step. It is available from the Sensor page, under the Account section on the main menu.
READY TO SET UP SENSORS ?
After creating your free account and signing in, you are asked if you want to set up your sensors immediately. If so, charge them ﬁrst. You can always explore the app while they are charging.
Before you connect your sensors for the first time...
We know you are excited to test those sensors, but please make sure they are fully charged before you connect them for the ﬁrst time. A full charge takes 45-60 min. The Charging Case & USB cable are included. You can charge to a computer, or to an outlet using your cellphone charging block.
They connect via your phone’s bluetooth
Your sensors connect to your phone wirelessly via Bluetooth signal. They connect one at a time, so you know which sensor goes on each wrist. Don’t worry… the app will guide you through, one step at a time.
Fully charged? Turn them on.
When your sensors are fully charged, turn them on. Each sensor has 1 blue power button. To turn a sensor on, hold down the blue power button for 4 seconds. You may need to press hard. When it is on, it will start blinking green. If it doesnt start, try pressing down a little harder, and a little longer.
Now your phone will search for any active Bluetooth devices nearby. It might take a few seconds.
Please wait a few seconds between turning them on and searching. Sometimes the phone’s bluetooth doesn’t activate fast enough, and sensors are not found the ﬁrst time.
We need access to your location
Please allow access to your location. We do not use your actual location, we are required by Google to gain conﬁrmation in order to have your device search and connect to the StrikeTec Sensors.
Searching for new sensors
It may take a few seconds for the search to complete. Hopefully both sensors will be found the ﬁrst time. If not, just try searching again. Sometimes users click through too quickly and the Bluetooth doesnt have time to activate properly.
Didn’t find both sensors?
If they don’t show up after 2 searches, review the troubleshooting hints on screen to see if you missed a step. When both are found…
2 sensors listed? Great!
Each sensor must be assigned to a hand.
The sensors are identical, other than their internal ID number. We need to assign one as the right hand, and one as the left hand. That is how the app will measure your right vs left-hand punches.
The right hand sensor is connected, and blinking blue.
Look for the sensor with the blue ﬂashing light. This is the sensor we just registered. Attach it to your right wrist, or put it with your right-hand boxing glove.
Now the 2nd sensor should start blinking blue.
After one sensor is registered to the Right hand (primary), the second sensor will be registered as the left. Attach it to your left wrist, or put it with your left glove.
Turn off when done.
If you are not training immediately, turn your sensors oﬀ by clicking the blue power button on each sensor 3 times.
WRAPS & GLOVES
Don’t forget, if you are using a punching bag, remember to wrap your hands and wear gloves. Protect your wrists! It is best to wear both traditional boxing hand wraps and high quality boxing gloves over. StrikeTec also sells special gloves with sensor pockets.
POSITIONING ON YOUR WRISTS
If you have already activated and turned on your sensors, remember which one is activated as the right hand. Each sensor should be placed on your wrist about where you would put a watch. The sensors can be inside the hand wraps. Or in gloves with secure pockets. They should be oriented so the blue power button is closest to you, and you can read the “StrikeTec” logo from your perspective.
7. Your Social Profile
ALL MEMBERS HAVE A PUBLIC PROFILE
