In order to pair the devices, they must be near the computer or tablet. They also have to be on and discoverable so they are shown on the screen. Follow the steps described earlier in the "Settings" section.
Be aware that if your Bkool trainer is connected via Bluetooth Smart to the Bkool simulator, and you try to connect it to another device (computer or tablet) that uses this same protocol, you will not be able to. Similarly, if your Bkool trainer is connected to another Bluetooth Smart device, it will not be visible to the Bkool simulator and you will not be able to pair it via Bluetooth. If you want to pair the Bkool trainer with the simulator and another device at the same time, you have to do so using ANT+ (if the other device supports it).
