Hi,
I have been trying to find code examples (android) for the sensor side of an ANT(+) network.
Basically, I want to pose as an indoor bicycle using the FE-C protocol so that my Garmin Fenix will use me as such.

There are numerous examples of the opposite, i.e. masters connecting to ANT+ sensor, but none(?) of what I am looking for, so I am beginning to wonder if the API at all allows me to do this through an android phone.
I did find PC and RPi examples using ANT sticks, but would rather do it on my phone.

Any help is much appreciated.
Thanks

Thanks, the restricted Android SDK indeed did the trick. I can now successfully connect to my garmin watch, posing as an ANT+ FE-C device.

However, that only solves half my problem. I also need to interface my actual equipment which only supports BLE, and BLE was introduced in API level 18 in android, whereas the ANT SDK seems to only work for API level 17?

Is there a way of making ANT SDK work also for later API levels?

Thanks

Disregard this reply. ANT android SDK seems to work also with at least android API 21.
