Wanted feature: ANT+ support

(Fredo Adam) #21

I thought I was unlucky with the setup Ant+ for Android. I would love to use Zwift but it’s depressing to see all the comments. I am not the only one disappointed. I went back to the store where I bought Tacx Neo and the guy said he never had complaints with Zwift connections. This also means I bought the expensive Tacx Ant+ for nothing… :frowning:

Yes Please Ant+ would enable me to use my PM and HRM on my portable Omnium warm-up rollers when I travel as carting my Tacx NeoSmart and Plasma plus Alienware Alpha is not an option!

Many Thanks :slight_smile:

ANT++++++ please please please

Another user requesting ANT+ support. I would pay the zwift subscription if I could get this to work. And as indicated in a previous post there are free apps such as wahoo fitness that do support this function. This seems like a low-hanging fruit opportunity for zwift to bring in some subscription Revenue.

Another vote for ANT+ connectivity. I have a Note 9, and the only thing keeping me from committing to zwift is that I need to buy a laptop to run it.

I dont understand why this isn’t a top priority…

HR on android please

(Marcus Kesper) #27

same here… just bought ant+ dongle for my android tablet but Garmin HR still not working

+1 for wanting ANT+. Why use so unsporty BT? :wink:

I used my Powercal heartrate meter while jogging on Zwift on my Samsung Galaxy S9 and when I got back it said my heart rate was 297 and I think I would have died if it really went that high. I think it’s a bug in zwift for Android. Or maybe my phone could have been picking up interference from someone’s microwave oven or something similar to an ant+ signal.

+1 please

Please add Ant + support on the Android App Beta to make ZWIFT the ultimate smart trainer companion on android devices.

  • Samsung Tab Galaxy S3
  • Garmin Fenix 5X Sapphire HR
  • Garmin Ant+ HR monitor (not working)
  • Taxc Flow Smart Trainer

Any legal issues keeping ZWIFT from implementing Ant+?

Please fix the ANT+ connection! The Bluetooth connection is so freaking UNSTABLE!

(Andrew Powell) #33

Why is ANT+ not supported? It’s supported on other apps like Rouvy so it shouldn’t be a problem to do it with Zwift. I use PowerTap P1 pedals and the Bluetooth connection only uses power from one side making the mobile app useless for racing and I can’t use it on my TT bike which has an SRM power meter with only ANT+ connectivity. I’d like to not have to always use my desktop or laptop…

This is an issue that should be taken more seriously, please fix it.

+1 for Ant support please. it works with other apps on android.

(Jon) #35

It’s on the roadmap guys.

(Phil) #36

Its on the roadmap but when? Seems like a really simple thing to implement.

Another one here wanting ANT+ so I can use it with my Garmin footpod and Android phone (which has native support).

I don’t want to fork out for a Stryd and the Milestone pod is rubbish if your speed varies from whatever it is initially calibrated at. Useless for interval training.

Could not connect to Garmin’s vivoactive HR. To get heart rate data.

Come on guys. Surely ANT+ support isn’t that hard to do. Must be a priority.

Any news on ANT+ support?
I would love to connect my Garmin footpod to my phone and use it for running. I don’t have a treadmill and bringing my laptop to the gym it’s so not convenient and practical.
