Order an ANT+ dongle if:
- You're planning on running your training application on your Windows laptop or desktop.
- You're planning on using a training application that follows the standard smart trainer connection protocol for ANT+ (FE-C), but not Bluetooth (FTMS).
Connecting over ANT+ can also be more reliable if you're in a very "noisy" Bluetooth environment (such as an apartment building or a home with lots of devices) and are able to move your device within 3 meters (9 feet) of the trainer.
Your device must have a USB port in order to use the ANT+ dongle.
- Learn if your device has built-in ANT+, or if it requires and is compatible with the plug in.
