Question [Q] GPE - Polar H7 (Bluetooth smart) hart rate monitor

I'm running GPE on my Moto G. Today I've received my new Polar H7 (Bluetooth Smart) hart rate monitor. It works well with my Nexus 7 device (running CM10.3) and Polar Beat app.

The Bluetooth device isn't detected in any fitness app on my Moto G with GPE but my wifes Moto G with stock firmware detects it properly.

Is the GPE not supporting Bluetooth Smart 4.0 technology? Is this a bug?

Ok, GPE does support BT smart. I'm now running BLE hart rate monitor and it shows the device properly. But runkeeper and and runtastic don't detect it

It turns out to be a problem in the apps.

I've found endomondo app working well and detecting properly the Polar monitor, runtastic sometimes finds it and my preferred runkeeper isn't detecting it at all so far.

So it's not a GPE issue.
