NK offers LiNK programs for Windows and OS X/MacOS, which require the use of a NK Bluetooth Low Energy USB Dongle to provide compatible Bluetooth support. LiNK for Windows and OS X only provide a way to upload your data for export as a CSV or FIT file. We encourage using the NK LiNK Logbook app for iOS and Android, which allows you to upload, stream and review all the data in one spot without having to export to a 3rd party platform.
