Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, share your Solos ride data on STRAVA, MapMyRide and TrainingPeaks. Note that other platforms use different methods to calculate your data so you may see some differences between the values shown on Solos and those other platforms. For example, some other platforms prioritise GPS data for calculating your distance and speed, whereas Solos primarily uses your speed sensor combined with your wheel circumference (but will back up onto GPS if required).

Solos is iOS and Android compatible (you must be running at least version 5.0 of the Android operating system and version 9.0 of the iOS operating system).

The Solos Virtual Image and data screens are 3x larger than a typical bike computer which makes it easier to read than your typical bike computer or smartphone. In addition, we are working on options for prescription interchangeable lenses for early 2017.

Due to security restrictions in Apple’s iOS platform and accessory protocol, we cannot initiate a reconnection from the iPhone to the headset. We have implemented a mechanism however that will allow you to connect from your headset to your iPhone. When disconnected (but paired), press the middle button on your headset and it will initiate a connection back to the iPhone and your Solos app.
