The app is great.
Is there a reason it's compatible with FR235 but not the FR245.
The wider Garmin ECOsystem seems far from straightforward.
Messages to developers seem to fail (Garmin connect message server fails)

Simply perfect. Thank you

Hi, thanks a lot for this simple and great app! It works perfectly on my FR235, and I use it to compare the built-in heart rate sensor with the external strap. Would it also be useful to make it compatible with the Vivoactive 4S? Many watches are supported, but unfortunately this one is not in the list. I would like to also compare the built-in heart rate sensor of that watch with my external strap. Thanks in advance!

Cool! I look forward to playing with this data more.
For others out there, I got this to work most easily (on my Mac) using fitdump:
1) Download fitdump and GarminFIT packages.
2) Extract both.
3) Put the Fit file you want to read as well as the Garmin folder (which will contain the file FIT.pm) in the same directory as the fitdump execuable. This way fitdump will find Garmin::FIT.
4) Run: ./fitdump myFitFile.fit

Can't get this to work. Fenix 5+, latest firmware updates.
Unpaired Polar HRM, added the ANT+ code (AND tried with 0) but data field just says "searching".
Am I missing something?

I don't think Polar HRMs are ANT+?

Great app - it allowed me to directly compare wrist based measurement on new watch (Forerunner 235) to chest strap i have worn for last couple of years. They compared very well in my case and it gives me more confidence in the watch going forward. Thanks for a very simple and useful tool!
