Hi, some Garmin models support transmit of HR from their wrist sensor via ANT+ which can be paried with Locus Map. Check HR widget or wrist HR sensor setting in your watch.

Hi all,

I have tried to set my fenix5 plus in HR broadcast mode, in which it should send via ANT+ its HR to ext. devices:

but unfortunately in locus pro in the ANT Manager I only get an error "... ADAPTER_NOT_DETETCTED" at Herzfrequenz if I set it to on.

Would be cool if you would make this possible :-)

It should work if you have ANT+ on your phone, like on Samsung or Sony models.

I see that the higher end Garmins have also Bluetooth, has anyone confirmed that HR can be connected with a Garmin through bluetooth? Like the Forerunner 945 or Fenix 6 Pro?

Garmin devices can stream HR only via ANT+ - but it might be actually good tip for the future development of Locus Map for Garmin. It might be possible to implement streaming HR via Bluetooth when the app is running in the watch. We will consider it for the future.
