What sensors are supported

Heart Rate monitors 

STAmina supports generic Bluetooth Low Energy Heart Rate monitors that comply with the Bluetooth Specification. However, it doesn't currently support smartwatches, such as the Apple Watch or Samsung Watch.

STAmina was tested with the following devices, but most stand-alone HR monitors should also work without any issues:

Pulse oximeters 

STAmina supports generic Bluetooth Low Energy pulse oximeters that comply with the Bluetooth Specification, as well as some specific models from various vendors. Please keep in mind that, unlike HR monitors, Pulse Oximeters mostly use their own proprietary protocol to communicate. This means that if you don't see your device in the list, there is a good chance that it will not be compatible with STAmina.

Here is a list of devices that were tested personally:

There are also devices confirmed to be compatible by our users, but we didn't have a chance to test them personally:

Non-Compatible Devices 

Avoid getting devices with on-device memory feature because they either use sophisticated communication protocols or don't support real-time data streaming. Here are examples of pulse oximeters that we were not able to put into real-time mode:


Compatibility with smartwatches is achieved through the use of watch apps. Two types of STAmina watch apps are available:

  • Stand-alone apps: These apps enable you to perform exercises that are configured within the mobile app directly on the watch.
  • Companion apps: These are apps that enable your watch to function as a sensor while you're exercising with your phone.

At the moment, the following watch apps are available:
