Garmin Forrunner 405 in the gym excercise bike


Active Monkey

Recommended Posts

Have had my forrunner 505 for about 2 months and love it, but want to know how to use it in the gym, specificly at the excercise bikes? I know polar and Suunto sync with the gym excercise bikes to show your hr and zone and allows you to do fitness test but seems the Ant + of the garmin doesnt?

Suunto use the older ANT communication protocol, while Polar has it's own communications method. To use an ANT+ computer, the fitness device needs to transmit an ANT+ signal (only newer ones tend to do this) and the computer needs to be set up for the 'Fitness Device' ANT+ profile.

 

Here's a not so up to date list of ANT+ fitness devices:
