This page contains the instructions how to connect your NoblePro E8i treadmill to Zwift via Bluetooth.

Before you begin

- Either: Download the Zwift app from the applicable App store.
You can use an iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Mac, PC, or an Android device like a Samsung phone or Google tablet.

If you are an Android user, you can also broadcast any Android device to your TV.
Or: If you already have Zwift installed, make sure to update it to the latest version.
- Make sure the treadmill’s Bluetooth chips have the latest firmware installed.
Please read our guide on how to update your FTMS firmware.
- Ensure Zwift has been given the needed Bluetooth permissions. You will need to go into your device settings to allow these permissions (read more).

Connecting your NoblePro E8i to Zwift

Heart rate data in Zwift
Unfortunately, Zwift does not capture the heart rate (HR) data sent via FTMS from the treadmill to Zwift. To get your HR data in Zwift you can:
Option 1: Connect your heart rate monitor (HRM) directly to Zwift.
Option 2: Connect your HRM monitor to the NoblePro treadmill and connect the virtual HRM via Kinni (FitCast) in Zwift.
The second options will allow your HR data to be displayed both on your treadmill and Zwift at the same time.
