HRM Help

Post by bobbietrems » Tue Feb 13, 2018 12:25 am


I'm trying to connect my Garmin HRM-Tri to both the Tacx Desktop App on my PC and the Android Tacx Training App but don't seem to be able to connect them. Can anyone assist? I'm intending to start HR training soon, so could really do with some assistance.

The Garmin HR strap transmits only ANT+ signals. As of now, the Tacx Desktop App works only with Bluetooth. Unclear whether your specific Android device can receive ANT or what you may need to do to enable it. One path you can take is getting a dual ANT+/Bluetooth HR strap.

I use a Polar H7. It works well and had a good price.

I recently had a heart ablation for atrial flutter and afterwards the Tacx HR Belt gave unstable readings but the Garmin strap with additional sensor pads returned stability
