Your smartphone must support Bluetooth Smart in order for it to communicate with Echo. Here is the list of known compatible smartphones.
List of Compatible Phones
Echo uses Bluetooth Smart to communicate with your smartphone, so you must turn on Bluetooth.
For instructions, visit the tutorial link below for turning on Bluetooth (apple iphone & ipad). Echo does NOT pair and connect with your smartphone's operating system, so do NOT attempt to pair your smartphone to Echo after turning on Bluetooth as you would a Bluetooth wireless headset or speaker. The same applies for other Bluetooth Smart sensors such as Heart Rate and Speed/Cadence sensors.
