Just spent over an hour of wasted time on support chat Just trying to check on ant+ and why not working on the phone. Never got a straight answer. Why can't people just be clear and honest does it support or not. I mind me annoyed as doesn't but not as much as not getting straight answer. My guess is it no longer supports ant+ so don't waste your time trying to get it to work

I was disappointed too.. I used my S10 plus a lot for fitness.. S20 Ultra doesn't support it and the S Health app no longer monitors blood glucose and heart rate..

Instead of switching over to bluetooth versions of products you've already invested in (like HR monitors), it is MUCH cheaper to just use an ANT+ receiver (thumb drive or stick versions). Many might still have these around  since they were standard on older watches that used ANT+ to send data to computers before that was done through bluetooth. If not, you can get ahold of one cheap on ebay. To get it to work you'd need to plug it into a USB to USB C cord or adaptor (also cheap if you don't have one). Older Samsung phones (S8/S9) used to have these adaptors in the box. SO...plug the ANT+ receiver into the adaptor/cord and plug into your S21 and you're good to go on ANT+.
