Crash of Kinetic after upgrade to IOS9

Hi Guys,

After several years of usage Kinetic is still my favourite running companion, and I hope I can keep using it.

After upgrading to IOS 9 the app started crashing on me, immediately after opening the app. I found out this is due to my Bluetooth (LE) heart rate monitor. If I do not use the heart rate monitor or stop bluetooth on the phone the app is working correctly. Could you please look into this, and restore the functionality of using a bluetooth heart rate monitor with the app?

I've noticed that Apple has deprecated the use of some bluetooth functions, maybe that's the root cause:
'The retrievePeripherals: and retrieveConnectedPeripherals methods were deprecated in iOS 7.0 and removed in iOS 9.0. Apps that use these methods will crash on launch or upon pairing an accessory.'

Maybe this is due to the obsolete bluetooth libraries in IOS 9
