• I have now switched over to the proprietary heart rate algorithm provided by the sensor manufacturer - which I hope will do a better job at giving you accurate heart rate readings, especially when moving around.

    It can be supplied with some different sports modes - for instance it may be possible to switch it to a mode that'll make it work better for Running - but I haven't tried this yet.

    It's a shame to move away from an Open Source implementation, but realistically despite making a test harness nobody seems to have been very interested in trying out better solutions.

    In the end, I think most Bangle.js users care more about a working Heart rate sensor than an open one - although anyone who does care can still build their own firmwares with the open one with relative ease.
