Garmin HR strap broadcasted through bluetooth on Fenix 5x


I’ve always used TR with my PC but I no longer have that option so will now have to set it up on my phone with bluetooth. I have a new Kickr which can broadcast with bluetooth but a Garmin HR strap which is ANT+.

Question is: can I use my strap to my watch (Fenix 5X) via ANT+ and then broadcast the HR data from watch to phone via bluetooth?

thanks in advance

Unfortunately, broadcast mode from Garmin watches only sends an ANT+ signal so that won’t resolve this issue. If you have an iPhone, you can get a couple adapters that will allow your phone to be compatible with ANT+. If you have an Android phone, you may be able to simply install some plug-ins.
