Ant+, does it work on the Nexus 7 or not?
« on: August 23, 2012, 12:31:15 PM »
I use my Nexus to log workouts, so I'd like to feed my heart rate to my apps.  I'd like to feed my Garmin HRM to my log apps. 

In the Play store, I've installed several Ant+ apps that say they are compatible, but when I run them, they all tell me my device does not support Ant+.

Is there something I'm missing, like external hardware?

Thanks

Are you sure the Garmin HRM is compatible with Ant+?

Garmin comes with an Ant+ USB dongle for syncing to Garmin Connect.  The Garmin Fit App in the Play Store says it requires an Ant+ enabled phone.

I'm not really sure the Nexus 7 is Ant+ enabled, I only got the idea because there are several Ant+ apps that say they are compatible.  I suspect that only means that the software will install, not the full functionality required to use it.

Thanks

Which Garmin HRM are you using? My Forerunner 305 only has a cradle for USB connection. So I am curious as to what ant+ is.

I've got an FR60, it's a couple of years old.  I'm thinking of upgrading to a GPS model, since I do more hiking, running and nordic skiing these days.  The GPS and map utilities are pretty cool.
