ANT radio service gives a feeling of a real-time radio communicator between your health-monitoring apps on your phone and your android wearable devices like Samsung gear.
If someone wants he can uninstall it if he doesn’t use health monitoring devices. It doesn’t affect your network signal as suggested in the comment below in any way. ANT is a wireless protocol, similar to Bluetooth ® that is predominantly used for sport and fitness wireless connectivity. It is been installed by the phone manufacturer, this service allows you to connect ANT+ devices to apps on your phone. It is a division of Garmin Canada Inc.
What is Ant Hal Service and is it safe to freeze or delete?
ANT HAL service is very much similar to other forms of wireless connectivity on your mobile phone and will not run or use system resources unless you start an app that requires ANT wireless communication.
It has been pre-installed by our mobile device manufacturer to allow the built-in ANT wireless hardware already present in your mobile device. One may have questions like its draining battery using a lot of CPU and can you freeze this app? Answer to this question is YES, one can freeze this app using titanium backup but ROOT is a must.
I haven’t noticed it affect anything as I have disabled this service a month ago.
