ANT+ Update

I’m new to Zwift and I was wondering why I can’t connect the ANT+ FE-C in Android… until I found this thread :slight_smile:
Any update on that?


ANT+ FEC is currently not featured in Zwift. You will need to connect via ANT+ Power and cadence to move your avatar. If you do not have the powermeter, then ANT+ Speed and Cadence sensors will suffice.

I know, I connected the smart trainer through Bluetooth.
But my setup would be cleaner if FE-C was supported, that’s why I was asking :wink:

I’m trying to use zwift on my Honor 20, everything seems OK, but I’m unable to connect my garmin speed and cadence sensors using the Ant+ for android. The sensors are working correctly as I’m able to connect them to my Edge 510. Any help would be much appreciated.


OK, ignore my last post… My phone doesn’t have ant+ :joy::joy: anyway, could anyone tell me if I would be able to use a USB port to micro USB apadtor to connected an ant+ dongle to connect my speed/cadence sensor?


It will depend on your phone. I’m doing exactly that with my phone but via USB-C.

The requirement on the phone is to support USB OTG (On The Go) which is true for all the phones I had in the latest times.
As for the adapter, look for one with support for USB OTG as well.

Good luck!

Hi community. I have a Tacx Bushido Wireless T1981 and I tryed to pair with Zwift by ANT+ from my Note 10. I couldn’t find the trainer in the app. Any sugestión for pairing it? Or it is too old trainer ?

Hey, I belive this could well be down to lack of FEC support (as of yet @will_botti am I right?) is sadly the only reason I’m using a rival product.

+1 for ANT+ FE-C support!

Good morning to all from Italy! This is my 1st post here, I’m trying to figure out how to connect Ant + sensors to my Android phone.
I have Ant+ HRM, Garmin speed and cadence sensors (latest but no blutooth), a Samsung A3 2017 with integrated ANT+ (tried ant demo and connects to HRM no problem). Everything works fine on my Garmin Edge 520.

Steps done so far:

  • Installed Zwift on PC, win 10
  • Installed Zwift Companion on Android

Now I don’t understand how to pair Ant+ sensors on Android, I only see Blutooth Icon at top right on Game screen.
On pc there is pairing screen, but I don’t have Ant+ dongles for Pc and no blutooth sensors, only ant+.
Any help appreciated, thanks!

Never mind. I solved. My phone is not compatible, I used an A5 and dloaded Zwift, not Zwift companion. It works fine now, see you online!

A question, can I connect how to control my roller by ant + Zycle Smart ZPro with this update?

Or is it only for heart rate monitors?
I say this because I want to use the zwift simulator on a samsung s8, instead of windows.
But it doesn’t detect the roller as controllable when taking the ant + option in zwift

Was cracking my head on why my trainer would not connect the controllable via ant+ until I came across this post.

So, +1 for ANT+ FE-C support!

I have an Huawei p20 lite, have Zwift that shows ANT symbol in the paring screen but it doesn’t see my Garmin Speed sensor while searching - any suggestions

Hi Bill,
Do you have an ANT+ dongle and the necessary 3 ANT+ apps?

I assume you clicked the ANT icon, and it’s pulsing?

Hi Will
I have ANT Radio Services and ANT+ plugins service - what is the the 3rd one I need.

Also if I have Zwift on my phone do I also need an ANT dongle…I was going to run Zwift Companion on one phone and cast Zwift proper to my TV?


Hi Will yes the ANT+ symbol is pulsating on the phone screen and it starts searching but cant find my speed sensor which is awake


ANT+ USB plugin for USB devices like receiver dongle.
