I've been holding out on buying a Bluetooth HRM for a long time, now (actually bought this phone BECAUSE it advertised bluetooth 4.0 as a feature....), and may be willing to lose touchwiz to use one, early.
Yes, I'm aware legacy bluetooth HRM's are available, but I know myself well enough to know I won't remember to charge it every day or two.
Thank you very much, in advance.
I really want to know the answer to this also.
I got an email from Runtastic July 31 claiming the following:
Runtastic Bluetooth Smart Combo Heart Rate Monitor
NEW - Compatible with all new Smaprtphones with Android 4.3. and
Samsung Galaxy S3 mini, S4, Note 2.
+ Compatible with iPhone 4S & 5
+ Low battery consumption
+ For outdoor and indoor fitness
activities (e.g. treadmill, ...)
+ Heart rate data transmission
+ Bluetooth Smart technology
+ Washable soft chest strap
I said, "Wait.... What!?" It seems like I've been waiting for this for years at this point. I wanted an H7, not an old zephyr hxm, but it hasn't been compatible. Now suddenly they claim the runtastic model works on the Note 2? There's no official 4.3, is there?? I searched these forums, best I could find was CM 10.2 derived ROMS, but they all say it includes CM's bug list--but I couldn't find that anywhere either. All I can figure is this was a misprint.
I'm with you, I care about this also, but I don't think enough people do.
