Any plans on a hybrid Bluetooth Android + Wrist transmitter
Is there any plans on making a transmitter belt that can be used with both the existing compatible Android phones and our heart monitors
iPhones have the luxury...dont they always!

I have both an S720 and an RC3 GPS. So either the 2.4 or 5khz version would be great - or why not both?
A bluetooth AND a dual transmit belt for 2.4 and 5 (I also have an SRM Power control - this works on 5khz, so when i have my RC3, I have to wear TWO heart belts..ridiculous. - having to buy an H2 belt)

thanks in advance for your replies

The challenge is that Bluetooth classic is using a lot of battery and so one would not want to combine it with other radios. Your proposed product would have to have a rechargeable battery and be more expensive.

A dual band HR Sensor combining BTLE and WindLink (perhaps named: H4, H5, or H8?) to service the vast existing owners user base would be very useful!

A tri-bander HR Sensor combining GymLink, WindLink and BTLE using a CR2032 (or CR2430 battery for extended duration operation) would take care of all the Polar devices (legacy, current, and forthcoming)!
