Description

This service is similar to the system components that enable other forms of wireless connectivity on your phone (ie. WiFi, NFC) and will not run or use system resources unless you start an app that requires ANT wireless communication. It is pre-installed by your device manufacturer to allow the built-in ANT wireless hardware already present in your mobile device to operate. If you do not intend to use this feature there will be no impact to your system and no further action is required.

If this service is not pre-installed on your phone you may still be able to enable ANT+ communication, see http://www.thisisant.com/developer/ant/ant-in-android/ for more info.


The ANT+ Plugins enable other apps to communicate with millions of ANT+ wireless enabled devices. These other applications which utilize the plugins will allow you to do things such as collect, transfer, and view your sport, health, and fitness data in real time. New apps, devices, and profiles are continually being developed, with endless opportunity for personal monitoring and other low-power communication applications.


The current version of the plugins supports the following ANT+ profiles:
-Bike Power: Receive power data from ANT+ cycling power meters. Includes seamless support for all power meter types and the new advanced data sent from meters such as the Garmin Vector
-Audio, Video, and Generic Controls profiles: Send and Receive control data with remote controls (IE: use a remote control watch app to control your MP3 player or camera)
-Heart Rate: Receive live heart rate data from heart rate straps produced by many popular manufacturers
-ANTFS Watch downloader utility: Download saved activities from ANTFS enabled watches
-Bike Speed and Cadence: Receive live bike speed, distance, and/or cadence data
-Blood Pressure: Download saved measurement data from blood pressure devices
-Stride-based Speed and Distance Monitor: Receive live speed and distance data from footpods
-Fitness Equipment: Connect to ANT+ enabled fitness equipment to receive live workout data
-Geocache: Search for and receive/send data with remote devices such as the Garmin Chirp
-Weight Scale: Read and download weight data and advanced body measurements such as BMI from ANT+ enabled weight scales
-Environment: Receive temperature data and records from remote temperature sensors such as the Garmin Tempe


Attention Developers!
