Forerunner 245 for cycling


Does anyone know if it is possible to pair my Forerunner 245 to Zwift as an HRM while I ride my bike?

Yes it is possible. To transmit the optical HR data via ANT+ go to your heart rate monitor settings and turn on the broadcast during activity option. It is also possible to transmit the data by Bluetooth but you will need to use the Virtual Run activity profile.

You may need an ant+ dongle, and I’ve found Garmin wrist hr rebroadcast to be less than reliable

It’s worth trying, it seems to work for some but not all. Worst case scenario you end up buying a wahoo tikr chest strap later
