I'm unable to pair the new Speed Sensor 2 in Garmin Connect Mobile, tried both Android and iOS phones. However, I was able to pair it on fenix and Edge devices in both BLE and ANT modes. Any help?
We believe this was resolved in a recent update. Please reply to this post if you are still unable to pair your Speed Sensor 2.
Is garmin support reading this forum? It’s unbelievable that after 2 years there are still the same pairing and data transmission issues!

Hi, I found out that my Speed Sensor was unable to pair but had a lot of automatically recorded activities stored. Whenever I tried to pair, it was unsuccessful but transferred a few activities to Garmin…
Same issue. It shows up in the device list but says attention required and won't pair. Transmits data too but I can't get to any of the settings.
Just posted previous message & had pretty much give up but just managed to pair again.
Android samsung s9+
I had unpaired from the SGS9 (& PC that zwift was on)
When I tried to connect & it failed I did NOT bother to removed each time.
I simply kept pressing re-try, straight away
but whilst "Connecting" & the slider 10% of the way along I repeatedly lifted the battery & pretty much as fast as I could pressed it back down.
sometimes it failed, sometimes the slider went a little further and perhaps after 10 or more attempts it went all the way.
I did find one, off & on & the slider went 2/3 of the way but never further.
It was the repeated on/off that worked. I did it so many times & really did not expect it to work not sure of the exact pattern but I would say not less than 3 & prob 3 or 4 on/off's that worked and I think quite fast, certainly did not delay to push battery down but perhaps not as fast as I could have.
Been trying for a couple of days. hundreds of different variations.
Amazed it did work & might have been pure luck but perhaps there is something in this. Certainly the slider got further a number of times.
Had already tried battery in & out but had always left it in.
Only just tested a few times since but rebooted phone, SS2 has gone to sleep, woken up & all connected OK.
Also caution, only had a few weeks & hardly used but the battery that came with it was down to 2.9v & fairly sure these (& my new one) tend to be about 3.3v
I have had other devices that would not work below 3v despite that being the spec for these 2032's
Also Answering my own query in previous post, as I have now managed to get into the connect App the wheel size makes NO difference to Zwift. bit surprized & not tested that much but 90% sure watts per cadence/speed was the same when wheel 1400 or 3000.
Hi, I found out that my Speed Sensor was unable to pair but had a lot of automatically recorded activities stored. Whenever I tried to pair, it was unsuccessful but transferred a few activities to Garmin Connect. So I did that over and over again until I reached the last recorded activities. As soon as they were on Garmin Connect, the Sensor DID pair to my smartphone.
Well, Garmin-Matthew, that may be the reason for people unable to pair, because the device is filled with activities?! Could you comment on that?
