Sufferfest does not see my Garmin Fenix 5

I am new to Sufferfest and am trying to pair all of my sensors. My Vector 3 pedals and Cadence Sensor connect great but Sufferfest is not seeing my HR coming from my Garmin Fenix 5. I am using a wrist sensor not a chest strap. I have set the HR to broadcast. Am I missing a step or do I need to purchase a HR strap to make this work? Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide!

  • Hi Carmen, The Fenix 5 will only transmit your HR using an ANT+ connection. If you are using the iOS app you will need to use one of the ANT+ to Bluetooth bridges to get it to connect. If you are using the desktop app, you can purchase an ANT+ dongle. You can see more information about those connections in this help article:
