WHAT IS ANT+?
ANT+ vs Bluetooth:
Although your devices may more readily have Bluetooth, the services advertised on Bluetooth are not all the same, so some devices may not work well with Bluetooth. If you have an option to connect via ANT+ we recommend this. Search for ANT+ dongle, such as:
– Anself USB ANT+ Stick for Garmin Forerunner
