    This is a question for owners of the Watch Series 2... is it possible to pair it a third-party heart rate strap? I have a Scosche Rhythm+ paired with my Garmin Vivoactive via Bluetooth LE, and would like to keep using it and shut off the HR on the Watch if possible.

    While I'm at it... I've also been using a Garmin foot pod for more accurate distance measurements during treadmill runs, but that's an ANT+ device. Will it sync with the Watch?

    I'm looking forward to your answers before I decide on whether to place an order!

    The WATCH 1st Generation was able to connect to both an external Bluetooth heart rate monitor and Bluetooth headphones at the same time. This hasnt changed in Series 2.

    I cant speak for compatibility with individual devices, but you should be fine. Youll connect by opening the Settings app on your WATCH (not iPhone) under the Bluetooth section. It should show up under the Health Devices subsection.

    I dont believe Apple devices support ANT+.
