Hi there,

I'm just setting up my new touch and I'm unable to get a reading on the body composition feature. I've followed the instructions to the letter, tried wetting my arm, made sure I'm not touching anything and I still get an X every time. help??

Hi terrylancaster,

Welcome to the Community & sorry about the delay in response!

Did you manage to get your tracker linked to TomTom account? I would advise you to double check the personal information in your MySports Account about the height, gender, weight etc. as wrong profile details can cause a cross.

Hi Gordo1965,

Welcome to the Community,

I can see that your activity tracker has the old software version 1.11.0 installed on it. We've released VERSION 1.44 after this, please connect your tracker to the computer and update it using the Sports Connect software.

Please update your tracker and let us know how it goes!

Cheers,

I have the same problem. Everything went fine, but the syncing with the app wasn't. So I reset the Touch. Now the sync is OK, but the body composition isn't working anymore...
I've bought my band about a week ago. I am checking the body composition everyday and it always measures: "34,7 body fat + 35,5 body muscle". I've found it strange and tested it on other people (1 very fatter, 1 very thinner) and so the band continues measuring "34,7 body fat + 35,5 body muscle" to those people too. So, I think my band isn't working properly. Does anybody else get this problem?
