FTMS has the capability to send and received data from your fitness machine as well as control it.
From time to time new features will be added to the Bluetooth features. To avoid the need to upgrade the Bluetooth module (hardware) every time we have enabled the firmware to be updated via Bluetooth.
Virtual foot pod
To enable the use of foot pod connectivity in certain apps we have added a virtual foot pod. This will allow the treadmill data to be sent as if it is a foot pod.
Note: This feature is in the beta phase and might have some bugs
HRM BLE sender
To enable HRM BLE enabled apps to get heart rate data from the treadmill will act as a virtual HRM BLE device. This enables you to have your heart rate on the treadmill screen and compatible apps. You will need to connect your HRM to the treadmill or use the heart rate pulse handles in order for the treadmill to pick up your heart rate data.
Bluetooth audio in
To use your treadmill as a Bluetooth speaker you can connect a device via Bluetooth and play music through the treadmill speakers. The volume can be adjusted via the source device.
