Currently, the Stryd apps for iPhone and Android do not connect with a Bluetooth Heart Rate monitor.
Our developers are working on integrating Heart Rate into the app but the timeline is unknown. If you would like to be able to view your heart rate data and Stryd Power we do have a recommendation for iPhone users: "iSmoothRun"
iSmoothRun can use Stryd as well as a Bluetooth heart rate monitor. This data can also be exported to PowerCenter for better analysis and let you continue to build your Stryd profile.
re: Stryd Footpod and HRM's
Long time Stryd user, I have successfully used Runmeter app on iPhone to record both footpod and independent HRM bluetooth data. Have taken power, HR, etc on numerous training runs and races, 5K, 10K & half marathons.
Runmeter has an excellent audio voice prompt for all metrics. iSmoothrun only calls out a few important ones
iSmoothrun will use pace from the Stryd if GPS is switched off. Runmeter (so far) will only use GPS in the phone. This is a big advantage as I've found Stryd's pace accuracy is better than the iPhone GPS.
I would love to see improved Android app with heart rate monitor (tickr) integration and audio cues.
