Arduino UNO / IO Expansion Shield V7.1 / BLE-LINK & Polar H7 Heart Rate Sensor

Hello,

I'm new to the arduino world (I did some simple sketches using a gps shield and a LCD screen; it was displaying the speed :-)).

My project is to display my heart rate on a basic LCD screen I have these items :
Arduino UNO / IO Expansion Shield V7.1 / BLE-LINK & Polar H7 Heart Rate Sensor

The Heart rate Sensor is bluetooth 4.0 so it should be compatible with the BLE-LINK, right?
But I don't know how to start sketching to connect to the heart rate sensor and how to use the BLE-LINK. Any help to begin with?

Cheers,

Mathieu

I don't give up! :-)

What I understand is that my heart rate sensor uses HDP (Health Device Profile), and the BLE Link is not compatible with this profile? Right?
So is there any way the firmware can be upgraded to support this profile? In this case, could I connect arduino with the heart rate sensor?

Thanks,

Mathieu

i check your heart rate sensor, it's actually another band products. since now , the protocol of bluetooth devices of different company almost support only android/ ios/ windows supported bluetooth and their own products. so does our ble-link. i thought your sensor could wire to a bluno board(with bluetooth), and then connect to your blelink through bluwtooth.but now, it seems not feasible.sorry for this.

2015-01-28 00:39:46 Hello leff,

yes this is this one :

It's plugged on IO Expansion Shield V7.1, plugged itself on the arduino UNO board.

The heartbeat sensor is this one :

With my windows phone, I can see it through bluetooth connections with the device name.

Thanks for your help,

Which ble link you bought from us? is this one-TEL0073?  and can you give me some information about the heartbeat sensor?

2015-01-27 16:17:47 Hello,

thanks for your response! :-)

Yes of course, I should forget the LCD first.
I set the ble link on "CENTRAL". But at this point, I don't really know how to start sketching, the example shown in the wiki of BLUNO device seems to be light.
In the code, how to start looking for the heart rate sensor? How to pair to my device?

Thanks for your support,

Mathieu

2015-01-27 15:27:37 yes, ble-link support bluetooth.

and as long as you have an arduino, i suggest you could start step by step. first, why not try connect the  heart-beat sensors to your Arduino. forget the LCD first if you feel it complecated. and the arduino have the Serial Port could show the sensor value.
