Android wear heart beat

I'm thinking about buying some kind of smart watch, e.g. a Ticwatch E. As far as I can see, the functions provided by locus addon wear seem to be very interesting like map display, tracking and navigation. Now my question: Does the locus App on my android phone receive and record the heart rate and/or gps data, that are acquired by such a smartwatch?

Hello,

neither heart rate nor GPS location measured by the watch are used at the moment. GPS won't probably be needed as long as the watch must be paired with the phone since the phone has way more battery to run the GPS continuously. But synchronizing heart rate with the track recording is really something that is missing right now and we plan to add this feature, hopefully some time soon.


P.S. About the answer - I am very sorry, I've saved the answer above as a draft instead of responding by an accident. Thank you for reminding me :)
