Hi all, I'm absolutely new to the Ant+ world, but I think it could be what I need.
I have a question I couldn't find an answer:

Do you know if there is a wearable device that can track and broadcast to a PC with an ant USB dongle realtime heart rate and speed of a user running on a treadmill? ( Maybe the garmin vivoactive HR?)

Natively, most Garmin HR devices have built-in functionality to broadcast the HR over the ANT+ HR Device Profile, but for treadmill data, you will probably need to find a Connect IQ app which broadcasts the ANT+ Fitness Equipment device profile as I do not think it's built into the native apps on the watch. It would also be possible to do so yourself if you don't mind doing some programming smile
