What android apps connect with the dailyburn hrm?

  • I bought a hrm and didn't realize that it's only meant for some reason to work with iOS. Can't find any apps on android that connect with my dailyburn monitor. So frustrated!!
    I've been with dailyburn for about 7 months now and I love it - I want to do inferno hr but I'm beginning to think that the hrm was a waste of money and I should return it and get something else.

    Be patient, I'm sure they'll come out with an android app soon. Yes, it annoys me, too, that only Apple is currently supported. It's not like "no one has android" anymore.

    Hello Countladybee,

    I also looked and don't see anything pointing to android yet. I currently use http://www.myfitnesspal.com/ to track everything (free) but use Daily for my workouts. Hope that helps.

    Late answer, but there are a bunch of apps that are capable of connecting to bluetooth low energy (BLE) heart rate monitors such as the DB HRM. One key question first is whether your phone supports BLE, because not all phones, especially older ones do. (The same is actually true of older iphones, ipads, and ipods, which has probably caught out some apple folks.)

    Assuming you have a BLE capable phone or tablet, search heart rate monitor on the appstore and you'll find a bunch. Most of the top fitness trackers such as MapMyFitness, Endomondo, Strava, and Runtastic offer free versions that support BLE HRM, and will link to food diary apps like MyFitnessPal. Some have ads, but offer pay versions if you want to upgrade. Digifit iCardio is another that pops up frequently, but you have to pay to enable HRM tracking.

    To my knowledge, no android apps link to Dailyburn. Android integration has been requested for years without much progress. I guess we're just second class citizens as far as DB is concerned. Maybe we should all cancel and see if it spurs them to action.
