Post Symposium Update from the ANT+ Team

Thank you for another amazing Symposium with ANT+. Together we surpassed our goal of advancing the alliance. Our Technical Working Group (TWG) sessions for Bike Power and Heart Rate Device Profiles were a huge success, generating a lot of excitement and optimism for advancing ANT+ capabilities. For instance, the Bike Power TWG is already hard at work on a new project.  Currently we’re organizing all of your feedback and requests (yay!) to roadmap ANT+ Alliance efforts in the months ahead.

As promised, we are making an official call for participation for the Fitness Equipment TWG:  if you work with fitness equipment, control or display devices and would like to contribute to the TWG, please contact [email protected] for more information.
