Wahoo Fitness Adds Android App, Turns Billions More Smartphones into Cycling Computers
Wahoo Fitness, which has built its marketing around being an iPhone powered fitness equipment provider has just expanded its bag of tricks with a new Android OS app.
It’ll work on any device running Android version 4.3 or newer and that allows Third Party App Access to the device’s Bluetooth 4.0 (Smart) radio. It’ll sync up with the company’s TICKR, BlueHR, BlueSC (Speed/Cadence sensor), RPM and KICKR trainer. If you’re still reading, we’ll assume a) you’ve not used their app before because b) you don’t own an iPhone. Quick summary: Their app is a pretty full featured cycling (or running) computer for outdoor workouts, letting you track all the same metrics you normally would…assuming you have Bluetooth sensors on your bike and/or body. It’s also the brains of their KICKR trainer, which is a remarkable piece of equipment.
And when you’re all done, you can upload to your choice of Strava, RunKeeper, MapMyFitness, Nike+, TrainingPeaks or GarminConnect.
