Darren Hague did a project to use Python with a Raspberry Pi and ANT+ stick to read bicycle speed and write bicycle power. You should be able to use it as a template to read sensor data by reading the ANT+ HR profile spec and adapting the SpeedCadenceSensorRx.py code to suit.

Python as an alternative to Matlab, Windows to Pi with python, for a direct data access without using the web

Here is the definition for "nerd" google translate gave to me

"a foolish or contemptible person who lacks social skills or is boringly studious"

Me personally, I would not choose "nerd" as part of my nick name on my Github.

I think Raspberry Pi zero W is a good platform to develop live stream applications. It it possible to have a live stream to Matlab or Python via MQQT. A Raspberry Pi zero W with a 4400 mah battery is not much larger than a smartphone, and battery live is about 22 hours.

"I did some calculations and research and got at least 22 hours. According to https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=127210 with a 32GB SD card, composite video and a keyboard, the highest power consumed was 140mA, and with a 4400mAh battery, that's about 22 hours."

https://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/56455/raspberry-pi-zero-battery-life-with-4400mah-battery

And after a developing period on Matlab or Python, it should be possible to develop everyting to run on the Raspberry Pi zero W, and use it as a standalone device.

There is no example how to stream ANT+ sensor data live to Matlab or Python to this date:

With the above instruction, a Rasperry PI zero, a 4 800 mha akku which lasts up to 22 hrs, a bluetooth keyboard and this display (the display also has three hardware buttons and a joystick, you don t need urgently a keyboard)
