My timer stops firing after I connect to Bluetooth have any suggestions?

Hello guys I’m having problems with the timer in my kodular app. In my app I’m trying to use the timer to keep live updates of the percentage of the phone and whether the phone is charging or not, but after I connect to the phone through Bluetooth to the Hc-05 chip the timer immediately stops firing and doesn’t update my app anymore. Any solutions you all can come up with to help me would be much appreciated.
