+Daniel, Oh I'm really sorry, you are right we can only talk to IQ Connect device at the moment and I'm really skeptical we could ever support the vivosmart devices. The main problem is we need an app on the device to make this working to be able to do custom aggregations on the sensor. If let say some device would be providing raw accelerometric data over BT, the battery would be empty in no time…this is why we need to collect raw frequent data on the device, highly aggregate them and than send them to the app in long time interval…

Hi Petr,

Awesome you guys are starting to work with Garmin. I just wanted to point out that the Vivosmart HR and HR+ are not part of the Connect IQ apps devices so we cannot use the app there. Is there any chance you could develop a work around this for us?

Thanks in advance.

I second the integration with vivosmart HR.

Garmin does allow API for their garmin connect which works across all garmin smart products

Integration with Vivosmart HR would be nice as it includes a heart rate sensor

Also voting and wanted to point to this post with a potential way to do this
