Compatibility of the speed (BSS) and/or cadence (BCS) sensors


The new Bike Speed Sensor (BSS) and Bike Cadence Sensor (BCS) will work with all new cycling sensor compatible fitness devices and even some old ones. Devices that are compatible with the original Garmin bike sensor, GSC 10, may not be guaranteed to work with the new sensors.

If your device is not pairing and not on the list below, you may need to update your software using Garmin Webupdater.

Devices NOT compatible with new Bike Speed and Bike Cadence sensors:

  • Edge 305
  • Edge 705
  • Fenix/Tactix/D2
  • Forerunner 50
  • Forerunner 305
  • Forerunner 310XT
  • Forerunner 405/405CX/410
  • Forerunner 610
  • Forerunner 620*
  • Virb Elite
These devices will continue to work with the GSC 10, but will not be updated to work with the new sensors.

*The Forerunner 620 will pair with either the BSS or BCS, but is unable to pair with both at the same time. When searching for Bike Sensors on the Forerunner 620 the device will pair with the sensor that is detected first.
