How TrainerRoad Works with Android
You can use the Android app via Bluetooth Smart or one of two ANT protocols: ANT+ and ANT+ FE-C. Some Android devices are ANT+ compatible on their own, but you may need to install ANT plugins from the Google Play store before they’re ready to use.
Other devices may require an ANT+ dongle. Fortunately, some of these devices work with existing ANT+ USB dongles from your computer and an additional USB-C or phone-specific USB adapter. We know this ANT+ USB stick works well.
To find out more about your specific device's ANT+ compatibility and more about the ANT+ communication protocol, check out ANT+'s page, ANT+ In Phones and Tablets.
Given the various ways the Android app communicates via ANT+, some devices may have stronger ANT+ signals than others. If you’re having difficulty using a native ANT+ device, you may need an adapter to train normally.
Compatible Android Devices
TrainerRoad’s Android app works with phones and tablets running Android 5 Lollipop and higher.
Supported Training Devices
The Android app supports most ANT+, ANT+ FE-C and Bluetooth Smart power meters, smart trainers, speed/cadence sensors and heart-rate monitors. We’re currently developing support for the following training devices:

*Please note, TrainerRoad will not be adding support for the ANT PowerBeam Pro as it uses a proprietary ANT communication protocol that differs from ANT+.
