would like to read heart rate data from Garmin device using

by MattHixson on Tue Oct 19, 2021 5:47 pm

Are there any ANT+ sensors that work with the Arduino platform that can read data from Garmin devices? I would like to read data from my Garmin HRM.
Thanks,
-Matt

There are no sensors to read ANT+ data. You will need to use a microcontroller or computer to read the data.

Modern Garmin HRMs are BLE and ANT+. The BLE part can be read by any of our BLE controllers.

Modern Garmin watches also have two broadcast modes to share heart rate data in activity or just continuously.

You might find it easier to use a Raspberry Pi and a USB ANT stick as the ANT group did put out a library.

There is no official ANT library support for Arduino, but these are the repos to follow:

Let us know how you fair. Personally, I would try to keep everything over BLE even if it requires a bit more power.
