No more wondering whether or not your new bike computer will work with your heart rate strap or speed and cadence sensor. Dynastream Innovations (the designers of ANT+) has created an online Product Directory with complete inventory of all the ANT+ certified or verified products. With over 60 million ANT+ devices in use today, the ANT+ Product Directory provides you with an extremely simple way to find other products compatible with your current devices or a combination of products to create the best sport specific solution for you.
The standards race to turn smartphones into sports accessories has heated up and it appears that ANT+, used by SRAM, Garmin, Adidas and others might win. As we mentioned in an earlier post, Polar has OEMed their technology to Nokia and developed a Bluetooth based Heart Rate Monitor to connect to a Nokia smartphone. Now a new Minnesota company, Pedal Brain, is offering an ANT+ accessory and application that will turn your iPhone or iPod into a full blown cycling computer.
