Zwift does not support the Gear 3.
That’s a pitty. Maybe something for the future
Is there a reason why it isnt supported please ? Is it a Zwift choice or do Samsung prevent it in some way ?
From the Samsung website It does not look like the Gear-3 has HR broadcast mode.
Thanks for the quick reply Yet it connects to their phones and samsung health app ? Do you think that there is a restriction on broadcasting to other devices ? apps ?
I was able to use my Gear S3 with Zwift : you need to get the app called “Heart Rate and Speed Transmitter” in the Galaxy app store. It broadcasts both heart rate and running speed from built in accelerometer and heart rate sensor over Bluetooth Low Energy.
In fact there is no restriction from Samsung about it and developers are able to use this BT feature…
Thats great Gregory i will give it a try many thanks for the information
which company makes the app ?
The company which build this app is BIPR, I am the CEO of this company.
Feel free to come back if you need some help or have any suggestion about the app…
struggling to find it can see the treadmill app and the ant + controller but not the heart rate transmitter ?
“Heart Rate and Speed Transmitter” doesn’t brodcast over ANT+ but Bluetooth Low Energy.
If you are using Zwift on PC, you need to use Zwift Mobile Link on another device to make it work. You also need to start the app on your watch to activate broadcasting. Normally, you should be able to pair Zwift with your Gear S3 then…
You have to connect to the S3 as a speed sensor and also as a heart rate sensor. The same device has both functions.
Hey Gregory, i downloaded the app, but i cant find a button to start this app. Not on my phone and gear 3 watch. For the moment i can only start it when i go to galaxy apps- my apps- all- gear and then i see the installed app. Is this normal?
No you should be able to start the app in the app menu. Did you try to reboot your watch ?
Ok this fine now. Thanks
This is great, I no longer need to borrow the wife’s Garmin for my zwifting.
Only comment, please can you add a close button, rather than needing to close via the recent apps route.
Thank you for your feedback, I will try to add this on next release!
I can’t find the app for Gear S2. Is it only for the S3?
