Max8 Polar H7 Heart Rate Monitor Progrom


    Oct 20 2021 | 2:53 am
    Hello Max8 developers and forum users!
    I am a university student in need of some programming assistance. I am creating a Maxmsp software where real-time heartbeat is used to control the volume of music tracks in a song. I’m looking at getting some assistance with connecting the heart rate monitor to the Max8 program. I am using a Polar H7 Bluetooth Heart Rate Monitor, which I have already been able to pair to my Windows PC. I have already worked out the audio parts of the program, I just need a way to connect, record and display the heart rate in Max8 in real time. Thank you all very much for your time and I hope to hear from you all soon!
    Cheers!

      If Max serial object can't recognise that device, you can try ble max external created by Matthew Hamilton https://github.com/mhamilt/maxmsp-ble

      I'm not sure how the Serial Port works exactly, so I might try the BLE max eternal package for now.

      Downloaded the BLE program and while I think I found the HRM on it, I'm not sure exactly how to go from here. What sort of code would I need to create to extract the bpm from the device and place it into a Max8 number box?
