PM5 bluetooth with heart rate: Loosing connection

Post by MarkusRowing » May 3rd, 2017, 3:28 am

Hi,
I have written an Android application that reads out a few parameters form the PM5 ergometer via bluetooth. The issue I am having is that the hearte rate information via the same bluetooth characteristic gets lost once in a while! All other parameters like stroke stroke or pace are constantly synchronized. I would expect the same for the heart rate. Does anyone have the same issue or know a solution?
By the way, my heart rate is constantly updated on the PM5 monitor. Hence, the bluetooth pairing between POLAR H7 and PM5 is working. Only sending the heart rate data via the bluetooth connection to the Android device is not working all the time. It works sometimes for 2 or 3 minutes and then it stopped. Sometimes it picks up and looses again.

Thanks for sharing your thought on what to do.

Best Regards.
Markus
