I have been successfully running an equivalent setup with two Happy Bubbles and two Android devices so far. It's a phone with Android 8 and a tablet running Android 7.
Unfortunately it doesn't work out of the box, since Android advertises a rotating UUID for privacy purposes, and without pairing you can't know the actual Mac address of the bluetooth device that you want to track.
However, I use 'Beacon Simulator', a free app on the Play Store, which allows you to transmit a customizable beacon (Eddystone / iBeacon / AltBeacon) and set it as 'resilient'.
I whitelisted the app in battery management. And (optional) I turned off notifications, so that it at least seems to be running in the background (technically it does run in the foreground).
Then, using Tasker, I make sure that the app launches every time the device boots. This works very well, after a boot, the beacon immediately starts transmitting again.
It's "set and forget" in that sense, and I don't have to carry around another beacon since my phone is never far from my side. Happy Bubbling!
