As the third introduction to their Bluetooth Hear Rate Monitor line up, Wahoo is giving the device its own memory. Calling it the TICKR X, the built-in memory means the device will be able to track heart rate,
calorie burn, and duration of workouts up to 16 hours long without the strap connected to your smart phone. The strap also includes Wahoo’s advanced motion capture technology that was first introduced on the TICKR Run. In addition to the Running Smoothness feature that uses an algorithm to track your running form, the sensor includes the ability to measure indoor cycling cadence without any additional sensors. Apparently more activities will be added to the strap’s repertoire in the future as well.
The TICKR X also acts as a standard HRM when connected to any smartphone via Bluetooth LE or any device that is ANT+ compatible. Additional features include the Wahoo Burn and Burst training program as well as a double tap feature built into the strap. A double tap in disconnected mode will add markers to the workout that can be reviewed afterwards. The feature can also be used in online mode to control music play back or laps. Compatible with Apple iPad and iphone, the TICKR X also works with Android devices with Bluetooth 4.0 and Android OS 4.3 or higher. The TICKR X will retail for $99.99.
