Is the Smartwatch Ticwatch S & E supported by LocusMapPro? Can the smartwatch be connected directly to Locus as a heart rate monitor?
this smartwatch is supported by Wear for Locus Map add-on because it is running Wear OS by Google. As stated in our previous conversation, HRM function is not supported right now on Wear OS devices but we plan to add this support to the add-on in a near future.
Hello Milan, can you say approximately when this feature comes? I hope soon. I would buy a watch with Wear OS on your statement to be able to then transfer the heart rate in LocusMap.
I would not like to promise anything right now, as we have to implement and test the feature to see how it works first but my personal estimate is that we could release the next version within a month hopefully with HR feature included.
Have you considered using HRM chest strap instead? They are really considerably more precise (not relying on optical sensor that smartwatches use) and offer very long battery life.
Hello Milan, a chest strap is not an option. I've worked with miolink and Locus before. Only there is the battery life after prolonged use very short. And the features that the Polar M600 has paired with Locus almost unbeatable. This allows me to do my running training without locus, and then summarize on the bike as a bike computer on the smartphone. I also use the navigation in LocusMap to drive unknown routes.
Additional Info: The decision has now finally fallen on the Polar M600. The Ticwatch S can not do 24/7 activity monitoring. But both have WearOs as their operating system
I would agree to test. As a beta tester.
Ok, great. I will let you know if we release a beta version, but any feedback will definitely be welcome any time. Thanks.
