We’re happy to announce an update to the App/Device Support Tool.
This new updates include:
- Garmin and Polar devices
- More clarity on how data is being collected
- Operating system specifics
- Data transfer protocols (i.e. Bluetooth, Bluetooth Smart or BLE, ANT+)
Open mHealth is enormously grateful to Francois Modave’s contribution to making this new update possible. Francois is a Professor of Health Outcomes and Policy at the University of Florida, College of Medicine. When Francois is not building mHealth apps, he’s training people for triathlons and has been racing for 20 years. It’s safe to say this he knows a lot about physical activity and fitness trackers.
We designed the matrix because we were constantly jumping between multiple company web pages trying to understand which devices support which measures, what kind of connections they use, etc.
Is there something we’re missing in this matrix? Feel free to let us know in the comments below.
