Lumo Lift Compatibility Android

With what devices is the Lumo Lift compatible?

Currently, the Lumo Lift app is available on the following Android devices:

  • Samsung Galaxy S3 / S4 / S5 / S6
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab4 7″ and 8″
  • Samsung Note 3, Note 4 and Note 5
  • Nexus 5, 5X, 6 and 6P
  • Moto X (2nd gen)
  • LG G3 and G4
  • HTC One M8

Note: Device operating system must be 4.3 or higher (Jelly Bean 4.3, Kitkat or Lollipop, Marshmallow)

Why does the Lumo Lift need Bluetooth 4.0?

The Lumo Lift requires a device with Bluetooth 4.0 capabilities due to the way the communication protocol is designed. Anything running below bluetooth 4.0 will not have the power functionality and would quickly drain the device. This becomes significant, especially since the Lumo Lift requires real-time data processing and requires hardware capabilities that allows for seamless integration of data from your Lumo Lift to your device.

Can I use the Lumo Lift without an app?

To take advantage of the full functionality of the Lumo Lift, such as viewing your data and changing your settings, you will need the Lumo Lift app which is currently only available on iOS and Windows 7 and up. The app acts as a remote control for the Lumo Lift for the various features such as Posture Alert and Coaching session settings. You can also view the amount of steps you have taken and the calories that you have burned.

You do not need to have your device with you at all times, or have the app open the entire time you are using your Lumo Lift. Once you have activated and aligned your Lumo Lift, you can walk away from your compatible smartphone/computer and your Lumo Lift will still track your posture and activity throughout the day. The sensor itself can store up to 3 weeks of posture and activity data, so daily syncing is not necessary — though we recommend frequent data syncing so you can track your progress.

If you do not have access to one of the supported devices, the Lumo Lift can still be used without an app. Though the features and customization will be more restricted, you can still activate and end Coaching Sessions and align your Lift to calibrate your standard of good posture directly through the sensor. The only difference would be that you would not be able to track progress and customize your settings.
