Its reasonably cheap to buy a new BT HRM. I’m also super adverse to replacing perfectly functional hardware just because it is starting to become obsolete. So I understand
where you are coming from. Sustainability is a big driver for me…also why I am eeking every last hour of use out of my headunit rather than replacing it.
The reality is, this issue affects a small minority, at some point you’ll need to replace hardware anyway, and it would cost an absolute fortune for Wahoo to support every possible device/wireless protocol out there including increasingly obsolete options. Sure they can do it…probably if we significantly increase our subscription cost… again, cheaper to buy a new HRM than pay a significantly increased subscription fee.
What bike hardware are you running that is ant+ only? Speed and cadence and HRM? Replace them surely? Most trainers are BT capable but appreciate some are ant+ only and astronomically expensive to replace, and that’s without getting into the whole disposable lifestyle landfill side of things. I believe Strava is going BT only as well, if you’re using your phone for recording outdoor rides.
Tough one I know.
