Have done some research but can't seem to find an answer. Does anyone know if the Karoo will read HR data from a Fenix 5 that has Broadcast HR switched on? I think in theory it should. Anyone know?

Suunto Speed/Cadence working both as Bluetooth and Ant+
Suunto Smart Sensor (HR) working. Sensor is only Bluetooth.

Assioma UNO pedals, power and cadence: not working (powermeter shows only 50% power)
yes, it works fine. You have to connect the powrmeter as an ANT+ device (not Bluetooth). When you add new sensor, you will see 2 power sensor, connect the ANT+ (normally only a number) and not Bluetooth with Assioma name.

I have read miles of posts about if a garmin vivo active 3 heart rate syncs with the Karoo and I still am not sure. I bought the Karoo because the support team said it would, but it doesnt appear to. Is there a way to get the HR from the watch to sync to the Karoo?

Many Garmin watches have the ability to "broadcast" HR. Whether the Karoo can pick it up or not, I'm not sure. What I think I've found with my Forerunner 235 is that it only sends the signal if you're recording, which means you're having to run both units (the watch and Karoo) in GPS mode, which (to me) seems to defeat the purpose as you're running down both batteries. I would look in your Garmin manual or contact them specifically about how to get the watch to broadcast HR. I don't believe it does it normally while running in every-day mode.

Regression in 1.95.686.3
Garmin Speed Sensor (one on my Roadbike and one on my MTB) can be found during the discovery phase, but once paired, it won't connect to the Karoo. (ID is 6 digits long instead of 5 digits) Done a factory reset from the recovery mode and one factory reset from the settings menu. No changes.
PowerTap C1, Di2 and Garmin Heartrate strap still works as it should.
Garmin Cadence sensor on my MTB, also 6 digit long ID same problem. Can be discovered, but does not connect.

Garmin Speed Sensor connects to my Edge 520 without any issues, so the sensor itself works as it should.
