This document walks participants through the steps necessary to onboard and get started collecting physiological data from Movesense sensors.

This guide is for projects collecting data from only Movesense devices.

The device should show up during the scan. Select your device by checking the 12-digit serial number on the back.  Then click Link Device.
Pair the device.
