I am currently using a Wattbike and a old Samsung Tab tablet, I can only connect to the Wattbike and it doesn’t allow me to connect a heart rate monitor. It seems only one or the other and if both connect then part way through the ride one will disconnect.
Any suggestions on a newer android tablet that will be compatible, I’ve been recommend the new Samsung Tab however that is the best part of a £1000 which I don’t really want to spend when i’m just going to sit in the garage and stare at the blue bars on TR.
Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 10.5"… https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B09LYWS5XK?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
Cost me £189. Does the job just fine and survived a 10 foot drop on to a hard floor with only a dented corner to show for it.
Another possibility is a Kindle side loaded with Android which is what I was doing before I decided I preferred the bigger screen.
The best android tablet is an iPad…
(this is from an android hardcore user)
This. Not to go all Apple fanboy (I was hardcore Android up to 2020 until I switched to Apple) but it is kind of ridiculous how much better iPads are at being tablets than the rest of the market. I think the situation is more equitable when you talk about smartphones, I would have no problem recommending an Android phone. If you insist on finding an Android tablet then I would say a Samsung Galaxy Tab.
Otherwise you can’t really go wrong with any of offerings of the iPad lineup depending on your price range.
I use a pixel 6 pro and a ipad…
I loved Pixel phones. Started with the two and upgraded every year up to the 5. Then I was getting jaded that the Pixel wasn’t “flagship-y” enough so I changed ships. The line definitely appears to have matured since I switched over.
I think this is the one I have also. Works fine. The only thing I don’t like about it is I can’t run an ant+ adapter to broadcast my Garmin watch heart rate to TR…
I also use my phone sometimes which is a pixel 6. Ant+ adapter works with that.
Are you using an old HRM? It may be cheaper to get a new HRM. Newer models like a Garmin HRM-Dual can support dual channel Bluetooth LE, meaning two devices can read the HR data from a single HRM
I have a HRM tri from my old fenix 3, I may invest in one of the newer monitors that does ANT+ and bluetooth which will hopefully solve my issues
The comment was made before the Google tablet. Now I would buy an Google tablet, if I didn’t had an ipad…
