Hi all can anyone recommend me a Blue tooth heart rate strap that is compatible with a Garmin 1000 and one that can also be used with a BKOOL turbo trainer.
cheers.

  • Nope, because the Edge 1000 requires an ANT+ HRM
  • How does it connect to an iPhone then?

    Garmin hrm are ant+ only. There are a few like wahoo that are both ant+ and bluetooth. These can be used with an iphone
  • Cheers. Thank you.

    Bluetooth connection only supports the transfer of data to the phone (including notifications and Garmin LiveTrack) not sensors which must be ANT+ capable (they may have Bluetooth too, but the Edge like all Garmins apart from the latest Fēnix 5/5s/5x only support ANT+ sensors)
  • Cheers thanks for that.

    You can still use the hrm to talk to both the garmin and the BKool. It will transmit on both frequencies simultaneously and as its a passive signal on the other devices it wont interfere
  • So just to clear things up.
    The wahoo HRM will work fine with the Garmin 1000 iPad or iPhone and also the BKOOL PRO turbo?
