Garmin Vivioactive HR Watch - No BPM?

Post by nigsy116 » Tue Mar 21, 2017 4:20 pm

Hi;
First post apologies if in the wrong forum.

I have a TacxTT2240 trainer linked to my Android Tablet running the Tacx Cycling app V2.9.3.
I am trying to get my heart rate information to show from my Garmin Vivioactive HR watch (ant+ compatible) on the cycling app.

It connects fine on the Tacx Utilities app and I can see my BPM perfectly on there, but I can't get it to show on the actual cycling app.
Any ideas??

Cheers.

I don't have an answer but also have the same problem with my Garmin Vivoactive HR and the TACX App. I wanted to get a notification if anyone can respond to your question. I have a number of heart rate straps; Garmin, Polar Bluetooth, Oregon Scientific and even a vintage Polar strap. I had to try each one separately and did get the Oregon BLE to work.

Hi, as the post is quite old,was the compatibility issue between Garmin and Tacx app solved? If not, Is there any chance or a deadline?

If you want information from Tacx, it does little good to ask the question here as Tacx does not monitor the forum. Send an email to support@tacx.com
