Garmin Vivoactive 4s

Can i use a Garmin Vivoactive 4s to get my heart rate/broadcast it on the screen/game while riding?

I use an android phone with Zwift and my kickr core connects Bluetooth or Ant+ on my phone.


Hi @Martine_Dupont

Welcome to the forum.

It look like the Garmin can broadcast HR. I am not sure if the android phone will accept ANT+ devices.

Best way to know is turn on broadcast mode and see if Zwift pick it up in the pairing screen.

Actually, I’m not worried about Garmin broadcasting it but more Zwift reading it/capturing it.

Anyone has tried and succeeded?

I don’t understand?

You need to broadcast it from your watch for Zwift to receive the HR and show it on the screen.

or did I miss something?

But ive seen on other forums that people have a hard time to make it work. Some are saying its easier with a chest strap per example so it’s why I’m trying to see if someone uses it and who could confirm it works fine.

O now I understand your question.

I found the wrist based HR monitors is not very accurate especially for biking. I tested the Fenix 3HR and vivo active.

For me chest strap works the best.

Ok good :slight_smile:

So you were able to pair though it was not super good data it’s what you mean?

Thank you!!!

I did pair to a windows PC but it was a simple as a hr strap.
