Lumo Back Compatibility

What devices are supported for the Lumo Back app?

iOS devices: iPhone 4S or later, new iPod touch (5th gen) iPad Air, the new iPad (3rd/4th gen) and iPad mini.

Lumo Back does not currently work with Blackberry or Windows Phone 7/8.

Why won’t Lumo Back work with all iPhones, iPads, and similar devices?

We’re using the latest Bluetooth low energy (BLE) technology, which is only compatible with certain devices. Additionally the Lumo Back app is tested against certain hardware devices and we support the hardware proven to provide the most optimal experience with the Lumo Back app.

Please note, Lumo Back is currently compatible with the following iOS hardware: iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, 5S, 5C, iPod Touch (5th gen), iPad (3rd/4th gen), iPad Air and iPad Mini. iPhone 4 is not support.

Do I need to be near my iPhone or iPad for Lumo Back to work?

No, the app does not need to be open at all times and iPhone/iPod/iPad does not have to be carried all the time. Once you have activated and calibrated your Lumo Back , you can walk away from your iOS device and your Lumo Back will track your posture as well as provide you with a vibration feedback when you are slouching. Once you open the app on your iOS device, data will automatically sync from the sensor to the app. Your Lumo Back can store up to 1 month worth of data before needing to sync it to an iOS device.
