Android Device
Compatibility

The devices listed below are compatible with Echo Meter Touch 2 and Echo Meter Touch 2 Pro with Android versions 6 or higher. There is no guarantee that future Android versions will work on older devices on this list as newer Android versions could utilize too much processing power. Likewise, there is no guarantee we will not have to cut off compatibility older versions of Android as time passes.

Compatible:

Phones:

  • Google Pixel and Pixel 2 (XL not tested)
  • HTC 10
  • Moto E4 (only works with the Echo Meter Touch 2, not the Echo Meter Touch 2 Pro. We are researching a fix)
  • Motorola Moto G4 and G5 (only works with the Echo Meter Touch 2, not the Echo Meter Touch 2 Pro. We are researching a fix)
  • Motorola Moto G5 Plus
  • Oneplus 1 and 3
  • Samsung Galaxy S5 (interference from the waterproof port door necessitates use of a micro-USB extender stub or cable with a connector width less than 1.4cm (0.55in)
  • Samsung Galaxy S6 and S7
  • Sony Xperia XA

Tablets:

  • ASUS ZenPad 3S 10
  • Google Pixel C
  • NVIDIA SHIELD K1
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S2

Incompatible:

Phones:

  • Any phone running an Android version earlier than 6.0

Tablets:

  • Any tablet running an Android version earlier than 6.0
  • All Amazon Fire tablets other than HD 10, which is still in testing.

USB Adapter Compatibility

Extension and adapter stubs:

  • If you have a phone or tablet with a USB-C connector, you need an adapter stub. At this time we have found only one female micro-USB to male USB-C adapter that works with EMT2. It is available at Amazon in the US and UK. Search for "USB C to Micro USB Adapter, ARKTEK Type C (male) to Micro USB (female)". We will continue to test new adapter stubss and add to this list if we find more compatible adapters.
  • If you have phone or tablet with a micro-USB connector but have a case that interferes with the EMT2, then you need a micro-USB extension stub. All stubs we have tested work fine.

Extension cables:

  • To use the EMT2 at some distance from your phone or tablet, you need an extension cable.
  • If your device has a USB-C connector, it is best to use the adapter stub described above and then use a USB-C extender cable (female USB-C to male USB-C). All such cables we tested work fine. If your device has a micro-USB connector, then you need a micro-USB extension cable (female micro-USB to male micro-USB). All such cables we tested work fine.

iOS Device
Compatibility

The devices listed below are compatible with Echo Meter Touch 2 and Echo Meter Touch 2 Pro with iOS versions up to 11. There is no guarantee that future iOS versions (released each year in the fall) will work on older devices on this list. With each new iOS version, more processing is required to run the increasingly advanced features. For this reason, it will be necessary for us to remove older devices from this list annually.
