North Pole Engineering has partnered with Baron Biosystems to enable ANT+ devices to connect seamlessly to mobile applications
MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- North Pole Engineering has partnered with Baron Biosystems, the creators of the Xert Breakthrough Training system, to enable ANT+ devices to connect seamlessly to mobile applications for Android and iOS. Using the CABLE from North Pole Engineering, apps like the Xert EBC app can communicate directly with ANT+ sensors such as heart rate monitors and bike radar sensors. This brings the flexibility and broad support of the ANT+ wireless protocol to mobile phones.
“We’re excited about bringing this new capability to mobile users and the prospect of enabling the millions of ANT+ sensors out there to work with our CABLE ANT+ adapter.” says Rick Gibbs, President of North Pole Engineering. “For the first time, bluetooth enabled devices and mobile apps will be able to interface directly with ANT+ devices using our technology just as though the device had native ANT+ capabilities.”
“It’s a game changer in many ways.” says Armando Mastracci, Founder of Baron Biosystems. “We’re seeing an increase in interest in using mobile phone technology to improve the overall fitness and training experience, particularly for cycling, where athletes are thirsty for using their mobile phone in new and innovative ways. By working with North Pole Engineering, we’ve enabled athletes to use our Xert app on their mobile phone to be able to connect to ANT+ sensors just as though they had a dedicated fitness and training device. We’ve reduced the cost and complexity barriers for athletes to get and use their fitness data to help them improve and reach their fitness and performance goals.”
