Similar to the technology that allows your phone to wirelessly connect to the Internet, ANT radio service will not run unless you open an app that requires it. The low power technology helps you keep your data rates low and works well with sensors, monitors, beacons and similar commands.

To use, it must be pre-installed in your mobile device by the manufacturer. If it is not already pre-installed, ANT+ communication is potentially available to you. The wireless communication technology helps you connect to other ANT and ANT+ devices.

The ANT radio service is compatible with ANT+ lifestyle devices including cycling produces, fitness equipment, heart sensors, scales and other gadgets relating to athletics, exercise and physical health. This includes popular smartphone applications like Samsung S Health.
