IB13: Wahoo Fitness Adds RPM Magnet-Free Bluetooth Cadence Sensor
Wahoo Fitness has been on a roll lately, adding updates (like their Strava Segmets app for indoor trainers) and products (like an ANT+ RFLKT cycling computer) on a regular basis. Now, they’ve simplified the cadence sensor with a single-piece Wahoo RPM Bluetooth unit that sticks directly to the crank arm.
It’s just 7g and requires no magnet. It communicates wirelessly with your smartphone to transmit cadence data via Bluetooth 4.0. Retail is $49.99 on it’s own, or find it bundled with the RFLKT or PROTKT iPhone case.
In other news, now you can get your ride data pushed to the RLKFT from another app while keeping your phone safely in your pocket. They’ve partnered with MapMyRide and come October, that app will support the RLFKT computer. They’ve also worked with BKOOL training software to add support for their KICKR trainer.
