    Does anybody know if the Mi5 supports Ant+ to connect to bluetooth heartrate monitors?

    I can see that Ant+ services are preinstalled but I can't seem to get a connection with Runtastic.

    I'm on latest developer rom so that could be the problem, not sure though.

    Xiaomi supports Bluetooth LE (4.0 +), but no ant+. The ant+ service is visible, I try to download ant+ plugin and radio service, but I'm not able to make it work.

    If you have a Bluetooth HRM, try with this protocol, it should work.

    I've got a Garmin hr wrist band that works perfect over bluetooth with the Garmin app, the band also supports ant+ so my idea was to get a real-time hr measurement with runtastic while out running.

    I don't understand why they have the ant service installed if it doesn't seem to do anything at all.

    In this forum I've read that the Mi4 and Mi4C have had Any+ support in the past but it has stopped workings in latest updates.

    Ant+ does detect and conect and work to my devices on my mi4, but not in my mi5.
    I run ant tester and it said that i got no ant firmware.
    I read that is m
    Because mi5 doesn't have built-in Ant radio.
