I have a need for a chest band heart rate monitor.
My phone is Xperia 10 III with the latest Sailfish. (updated a couple of days ago)
Previously I was using a C536X bought in 2016 which consisted of a chest strap that talked with a watch that came with it. The chest strap, I have lost faith in, after comparing its readings with other devices. The company, CSX, appears to have gone down the pan so I can’t contact anyone there.
There are various chest monitoring straps on the market, but they don’t seem to come with software, or at least software that I can trust not to start sending my personal information back to someone elses servers. (which is why I jacked in my FitBit after three days) … There was talk about Kuri, but I don’t think that reads any health devices.
I’m presuming that modern chest straps pair via bluetooth rather than the old Ant standard, so should work with the phone.
Grateful for any wisdom on this, that people can throw in my direction.
