How do I pair my GARMIN eBike Remote?

This tutorial shows how to pair your GARMIN eBike Remote with the XE-1.


The first time you connect the GARMIN® eBike with your Hydrofoiler, you must pair it to your XE-1 battery.

  1. The battery must be out of the water in order to pair successfully.

  2. Bring the remote within 1 m (3 ft.) of the Hydrofoiler and Hydropack battery.

NOTE: You must stay 10 m (33 ft.) away from other ANT+ sensors while pairing.


  1. Turn on the battery.
  2. On the GARMIN® eBike remote, hold two keys simultaneously until the LED starts alternating green and red, and release the keys.
  3. The remote will search for your Hydrofoiler XE-1. Once the LED flashes green 6 times, pairing is complete and successful.
  4. Once paired, the GARMIN® eBike Remote connects to your XE-1 whenever it is in range and turned on. You may need to wake the remote by selecting any key.
