HI!
I'm developing Android application to show all measures from weight scale Tanita BC-100 but only get the weight value. The rest of measures (Bone mass, hydration percentage, etc.) are -1
I'm using:
antpluginlib 3.8.0
fitlib 21.18

Is posible get all measures?

Thanks in advance

You may find testing with https://www.thisisant.com/resources/ant-simulator/ helpful.

This tool will parse information from the transmissions and help determine what is causing the issue you are seeing. See if it is able to parse the information, and post back. If it is not functioning as expected please copy in part of the raw channel output.

You need to become an adopter if you wish to have access to the profiles and tools. https://www.thisisant.com/my-ant/join-adopter if you are interested. This will probably be required to debug your issue further.

https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2010/02/tanita-bc-1000-scale-review-in-depth.html shows that there should be support for extra measurements over ANT+.

https://www.sloan-kiechel.com/dev-logs/2020/6/9/meditatehr-week-4-ant-on-android indicates that the plugins were still working recently on some devices. You may need to provide more details about how you are using the plugins. Have you followed along with the process from https://www.thisisant.com/resources/android-ant-apps-workshop/ to check basic functionality is working as expected on your hardware?

After reviewing the information offered by the application (AntPlusPluginSampler) , I see the following:

User Profile Exchange: true
User Profile Selected: false
User Profile ID: UNASSIGNED

Could it be that due to not having an assigned profile, it does not return the advanced information (percentage of hydration, etc.)?

In the wgtPcc.requestAdvancedMeasurement () call I am passing a user profile as a parameter.

Am I missing something?

After reading the API documentation in depth, I think that the problem is actually that the scale does not identify the profile that I send with the method wgtPcc.requestAdvancedMeasurement ().

How can I add a profile to the scale from my Android application?

It's quite a useful app because people can find all the information through their phones. I am happy that recently people have started to monitor their health. I maintain a healthy lifestyle and try to eat right. What's more, I occasionally measure my weight on this scale https://www.amazon.com/Vont-Smart-Body-Scale-Black/dp/B08XYX8RDR/ which, helps me to avoid gaining too much weight. If I have put on weight, I exclude sweets from my diet. Sweets are my weakness.

Personally, I monitor my weight with the smart scale. All smart scales are equipped with metal contacts on the platform, and you need to weigh yourself on them with bare feet. During weighing, the device sends electrical impulses of different frequencies (safe even for a child) from one contact to another. Then it analyzes their passage through the body and transmits the data for processing to the computing unit. It already has your data plus special formulas for calculations: the processor calculates a number of indicators based on the embedded formulas and your personal parameters
