Hi guys,

is it possible to use signal from ANT+ device in app that uses only bluetooth smart api? I mean emulate (translate?) or sth? (Im a real noob)

I have ANT+ HRM and would like to use it with micoach app (adidas sucks and isnt interested in adding ANT+ api to its app).

No. ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart are different wireless protocols, using different API's and different stacks (think WiFi vs. Bluetooth).

To allow an existing app that uses Bluetooth Smart to use an ANT+ device, you would have to replace the Bluetooth stack on your phone with one where you have changed it (not changing the API) so it uses the ANT+ stack and translates between ANT+ and Bluetooth packets and adds in info for Bluetooth advertising. Not a trivial task.
