The Garmin heart rate straps also broadcast an ANT+ signal which is compatible with OnBeat.

FitBit and Apple Watch
OnBeat does not currently work with FitBit or Apple Watch because they do not allow third party apps to import real-time heart rate data. If this changes, we will be sure to integrate with them.
