Mightier Setup using a Mightier tablet

We're glad you're here! Let's get started.

Make sure you log into the Mightier App BEFORE you power on your heart sensor.

Follow these steps:

  1. Set up the Mightier tablet
  2. Download the Mightier App
  3. Log into the Mightier App
  4. Set up and fit the Heart Sensor on your child (but keep the power off for now)
  5. Start the Mightier App and create a player
  6. Power on the Heart Sensor when Gizmo tells you to


Step 1: Set up the Mightier Tablet

We provide a standard Android tablet with internet access and apps such as YouTube preloaded. If your family has a compatible tablet, we encourage you to use it instead. Oftentimes, a personal device is already set up in a way that works for kids and families, with apps and parental controls already established. You can double-check your personal device's compatibility here. 


  • Important!! If you receive an Android tablet from Mightier, a Google account is required to set it up.
  • Use a child Google account. Since this tablet has built-in apps like YouTube, we recommend using a child account for your privacy and protection.
    • To create a child account, wait for the Google sign-in screen, select “Create account” then select “For my child”
    • For more information, please read these instructions: Google Account Setup


  • (Optional) Set up Family Link for parental controls. Google’s Family Link parental control app allows you to:
    • Review and disable apps you don’t want your child to have access to
    • Set daily time limits
    • Schedule a bedtime
  • Family Link works best when you also download the app on your mobile device. For more information about how to use and set up Family Link, we recommend starting here: Family Link Setup


Step 2: Download the Mightier App

  • Go to the Google Play Store image-20240320-203520 (1).png and search for “Mightier.” Our app is pretty large, so it’s normal for it to take up to 15 minutes to download.


Step 3: Log into the Mightier App

  • Once the download is complete, open the app and log in using the email address and password you created when you purchased Mightier (this is different than your Google account login).
  • If you're having trouble, click here and we will email you a link to reset your password.
  • You can also log into the Mightier app using a one-time login code. To access this feature, click the Settings button in the top right corner of the Parent app. Then, tap "Get a Login Code."


Step 4: Set up the Heart Sensor

  • Before you play, remove the protective sticker.
