ANT+ (or ANT) example?

  • Hi,

    I got 2 Puck's and a Garmin smartwatch. Both can use BLE as well as ANT. There are unfortunately no examples for ANT or ANT+.

    Does Espruino support ANT or ANT+ in any way?

    If not, I'll have to go the BLE route it seems.


  • Hi,

    Espruino doesn't support ANT natively at all I'm afraid, however the softdevice used on Espruino does, and @ConorONeill had done some work compiling a custom firmware that did some stuff with it I believe?

    But if both support BLE, I'd strongly suggest using that instead - it'll be so much easier for you to use and debug the communications with it, since you can use phone apps like NRF Connect to easily show you info about the devices.

  • Unfortunately I got distracted with building Espruino on Particle Xenon and never got back to looking at ANT+, sorry :-(

  • Thanks! I'll heed Gordon's suggestion and use BLE instead then. Especially since Conor didn't work on ANT either.
    Works for me. Thanks to both of you for the very quick reply!
