Connecting to Kindle Fire

I have asked in the past about connecting to my Kindle Fire but never got an actual answer. I have tried to search for the Bose Connect app in the app store on my kindle but all it brings up is "Bose Sound Touch". I want to be able to watch TV apps while I am on my treadmill but I can't seem to find the right app. The last time I asked about this I was told that I can connect by just turning it on and the device will find it but it doesn't work. Thanks in advance for any response.

Re: Connecting to Kindle Fire

When I follow the instructions my Kindle says "Pairing rejected LE-Bose SoundSport" but it doesn't give any explanation or additional information. Sorry to be such a pain

Re: Connecting to Kindle Fire

Thanks for getting back in touch.

 

We would recommend connecting to the "Bose SoundSport" and not the LE version. Both should appear on the list as available devices. It is possible LE may show up first, but give it a minute or two for the list to populate with all available connections. 

 

Thanks.

Re: Connecting to Kindle Fire

Hi Becky,

 

Thanks for reaching out to the Community. Sorry you're having difficulty in connecting your SoundSport Free's to your Kindle Fire.

 

Do you have any issues with connecting your headphones to other devices? Or is it just the Kindle Fire that you're experiencing issues with?

 

I look forward to hearing from you.
