If you are experiencing slow syncing or connectivity issues with your Wave/ Wave Plus or Wave Mini (and do not own a Hub), you can follow these instructions which can solve the issue or help to identify where the problem lies.

Try to sync after each step. By syncing, we mean try to initiate syncing with your Airthings device with the app, by selecting the device and refreshing, or prompting the "sync now" option. If at any point during this troubleshooting the device seems to operate properly, stop! Then tell us after which step it started working.

Here it goes:

  1. Ensure your app is up to date (iOS version 3.3.0, Android 3.4.0)
  2. Ensure your Bluetooth is enabled
  3. Be within Bluetooth range of the device
  4. Turn off your Bluetooth, and turn it on again.
    Turning off/on the Bluetooth MUST be done through Settings (not the pull-down menu). Go to Settings Bluetooth On/Off toggle.
  5. Ensure you have internet access (on your phone/tablet).
  6. Ensure your GPS/location is on (required for Android users)
  7. Try placing your phone on Airplane mode for several seconds, then take it off and try to sync again.
  8. Restart your app.
  9. Log out and log in to your app again.
  10. Restart your phone.
  11. Delete your app and reinstall the app again from the iTunes/ Play Store

Note: the following steps may cause data loss if you have been unable to sync at all with the previous steps. Removing the batteries will cause data loss of the data that has not been synced. Please contact our Support team if you have concerns.

  1. Take out the batteries of the device and wait 30 minutes.After 30 minutes, reinsert the batteries. Now, you will have to wait for 1 hour before new measurements become visible again.
  2. Is your device secondhand or approx. 1 year old? You may need to change the batteries, especially when performing a Firmware update.

Warning! Unpairing from your monitor and pairing again will cause a new measurement segment to start. Do not use this as a troubleshooting step unless you are happy to start a new measurement segment.
