I want to start receiving the BPM from HRM device, but I failed to do so, I am not sure what I am missing, I am able to connect to the device successfully, but somehow I cannot receive the BPM from the device it either show me an error of not proper UUID or operation is rejected.
I tried to use an app called BLE scanner in the store, and I was able successfully to receive the data using the Notify service over the motioned UUID in the app.
Please let me know how can I make this app works
please check picture below:
I am sorry for your issue.
Is the type of data you want to receive string?
is Notify method is supported by thunkable? @ioannis
I have did this to try several UUIDs, and I came to know that when the command is “READ” command I can get a data,
But when it is “NOTIFY” UUID, I receive “operation was rejected”
please check the pictures below as an example
Please let me know how to do the notify,
We can understand that it is frustrating and appreciate you taking the time to investigate and provide more information.
At the moment, Notify method is not supported, but this is a good suggestion! I’ll pass it on to the team.
Is it possible for you to update the firmware to use READ instead of the NOTIFY method? Another user had the same issue and was able to resolve it using this method.

Yes, @ayunsolutions, I managed to get it working with what @ioannis has mentioned above.
For all the BLE Characteristics packets that you want Thunkable App to receive properly from the Peripheral device, on the firmware side of that device use “READ”.
Here is an Arduino sample code
BleCharacteristic deviceHealthCharacteristic("deviceHealth", BleCharacteristicProperty::READ, deviceHealthUuid, serviceUuid);
Incase you want to send commands or data to the Peripheral device from Thunkable App, use “WRITE”
// BleCharacteristics for receiving commands
BleCharacteristic rxCharacteristic("rxCmd", BleCharacteristicProperty::WRITE, rxUuid, serviceUuid, onDataReceived, NULL);
Hope this helps as I always like to emphasize/assist by providing code/block snippets to the issues which is easier for the community member to understand.
I am so excited that you solved the issue!
Thank you so much for sharing the code. I am sure that all members of our community will appreciate it.
I am trying to make an app for health monitoring system. Stuck up with BLE data string receiving and displaying on screen. Want a particular picture to show up after receiving a number say 63.
Am I missing some thing. Can some one help me please.
Maybe your device is using the Notify service.
At the moment, Notify method is not supported.

Thank you for the reply. In fact the string data is being received and displayed also however the conditional statement to do some thing like making a picture live is not being performed.
Thank you for sharing more information.
Does the label show “63”?
If so, try using the “label’s text” block in the condition
I have solved it by using using number block but remains stuck even if the data string number changes. How to refresh the whole thing without disconnecting the BLE. Can you help please.
