Interbike 2015: Wahoo Launches New GPS Computer – The ELEMNT
Wahoo Fitness, the leader in workout apps and smartphone connected fitness devices, is proud to announce the ELEMNT, a GPS-enabled cycling computer designed to transform the way people experience and interact with their ride data. By streamlining the user experience and drastically simplifying the setup process, the ELEMNT allows riders to put the focus back on their ride, providing a seamless connection between the rider and their data.
Designed by cyclists, for cyclists, the ELEMNT packs ANT+, Bluetooth Smart, and WiFi connectivity that allows riders to easily view key ride metrics, navigate a route, track fellow riders’ locations in real-time as well as receive en-route call, text and email notifications—all on it’s large-format, high-contrast DayBright display. Changing the way riders interpret real-time data, the ELEMNT’s innovative QuickLook LED indicators provide visual indicators for critical alerts and data. Fully programmable, the indicators can be set to display metrics such as speed, heart rate, power, turn-by-turn navigation cues and more.
By utilizing the smartphone interface, setting up and personalizing a cycling computer has never been easier. The ELEMNT companion app, available on both iOS and android platforms, automates the ELEMNT pairing and manages the configuration process for fast, frustration-free setup and personalization. Riders also benefit from the ELEMNT’s integration with third-party platforms like Strava and RideWithGPS, which allows the ELEMNT to automatically pull your saved routes directly from your account. Uploading workouts to platforms like Strava, MapMyRide, RideWithGPS, and Training Peaks is easier than ever thanks to wireless syncing via Bluetooth or WiFi, meaning riders will never have to connect the ELMENT to a computer to access their workouts.
Fully integrated with the rest of the Wahoo product line, the ELEMNT also offers riders the ability to control their KICKR indoor training experience directly from their handlebars, without a computer, tablet or smartphone. The ELEMNT can even allow you to recreate any saved course indoors by matching resistance to the ride’s GPS profile.
