I'm now using broadcast mode on my vivosmart HR. I doubt it's as accurate as a chest strap but it's close enough, and I'm wearing it so don't forget to put it on.
It's rubbish for rowing though, too much arm action. My Bluetooth one doesn't do ANT+ and has been mostly retired.
The zones show on my 520 so it doesn't matter that my wrist is under layers.

What's broadcast mode?
Milk please, no sugar.

On waking up a TickrX mine always wakes up if I touch the contacts with my left and right hand. YMMV.
