So, in summary, great unit, works well, but take the unit completely off when letting the strap dry.

You literally take it out the pack, put it on (around your chest (under your boobs ladies) and away it goes!! It links via Bluetooth straight to my DDP Yoga app and I can’t praise it enough.
So far it seems to work well, I chose this one as it did both BT and ANT+ which should mean it will always be detected by devices/apps one way or another but so far the normal app seems fine so I've not played much with other ones.
The chest strap doesn't bother me and hasn't yet to unfastened and it seems to keep an accurate count from what I can tell.
The app lets you export directly to a decent number of other app like Strava and MyFitnessPal and also to to plain files/zips in various common formats so you can always get your data one way or another.
I've even used the GPX export to compare my run routes to the openstreetmap data.
For me it provides some probably useful stats to help keeping me interested in continuing to run, so it is doing what I wanted :)
It also proves to me my heart isn't about to explode.
* Seems to just work. Connect chest belt and hit start.
* Makers app seem fine and device seems supported by other common apps.
* Cheap enough to try and not the end of the world if not for you.
* Can link to some smartwatches / bike computers etc for easy viewing of figures.
* BT and ANT+ can be used at same time
* Uses common watch battery (CR2032) and comes with one fitted already, No idea yet how long it lasts yet.
* Needs to be within BT / ANT+ range of a mobile device to record data (HR) and uses mobile for GPS. (Wahoo TICKR X Heart Rate Monitor and Workout Tracker with Memory for iPhone and Android exists which has memory but much more expensive)
* Chest worn, not for everyone
I have no experience of any other chest heart rate monitor and I'm by no means an expert in fitness at all. I bought this because my watch one was rubbish and an arm one I tried kept sliding down so I'd taken to guessing values, but as a bit of a perfectionist I wanted something more concrete to work with, this so far seems to give similar results for similar exercise sessions so it's at least consistent.
I can not comment on it's accuracy as to whether the device is telling me the truth. Sometimes I feel like it's generous, BUT when I have compared results with online guestimation calculators, the results are always within a reasonable range.
The reason I have dropped a star is because I feel like the strap is hard to adjust, it kept sliding back to the previous size but I'm not sure if I was being dense. Also I had a couple of issues regarding it not finding my heart rate straight away or losing it. Took it off and reconnected it a couple of times and then finally dampened my skin, then it stayed on fine for entire hour, just caused a few irritating restarts and obviously losing my heart rate zone every time I stopped to fix it. Did seem perfect again after than but I'll report back if it becomes a real issue.
Comfortable, consistent, affordable as he'll, great connectivity.
Tip, spend a few moments wearing it before you dive in to your workout just to make sure it has z read on your heart rate.
Definitely seems worth the money especially if like me your not hard-core fitness and just want to know what you did. I'm a just dance/ fitness video /odd bike ride and walk person. Beyond that I can't comment.
Have a great day!!x
Not like my Garmin HRM.
I rely heavily on the monitors in my workouts in that I pace myself based on heart rate. I didn’t want to buy another expensive Polar monitor so thought I’d try the Wahoo Tickr from Amazon simply because it costs about 65% of my Polar H7. My reasoning was if it worked poorly I could return and then buy the pricier Polar.
Of the two the Wahoo Tickr is easier to put on. Even though it’s not a big deal either way, the “hook and loop” system of closing the belt on the H7 is rather cumbersome compared with the simple “snap” method of the Wahoo. Once on, comfort is about the same.
Both initially connect quickly and reliably to the PM5 monitors on my rowers.
**UPDATE** I’ve had the Wahoo for a couple of months now. Initially it worked well with both my Concept 2 rowers but now will cut out entirely during rowing sessions. I’ve changed it’s own battery as well as the batteries in both my Concept 2 rowers to no avail. The Polar H7 is still working perfectly. Not sure if it’s a compatibility issue with C2 or a faulty monitor.
*Another Update : I communicated the issues to Wahoo and they promptly shipped a replacement. Full marks for customer service. I've completed several workouts with the replacement Tickr and it has worked flawlessly every time.
Functionally there really isn’t much difference between the Polar and Wahoo. Assuming the faulty Tickr was an anomaly, I’d suggest purchasing the Tickr just due to price point alone. If you do end up with a faulty Tickr, I’m confident the customer service dept. at Wahoo take care of the issue properly.
When I bought it, I thought the constant connecting and disconnecting off the press studs (snap connectors) that attach the belt to the central unit might wear out quite quickly. I was right.
Although I wear the belt almost twice daily on average (commuting to work and back), I didn't expect it to break so soon. Last night, while disconnecting the belt, the plastic clasp at one end opened up. I don't know how long it will last in this state, but overall it seems the weak link and a design flaw.
I can recommend the belt for accuracy, but not for longevity.
I've been connecting it to my phone to collect my HRV each morning and connection has been seamless. The phone is able to show me an accurate BPM count as well, which is useful - I'm not using it specifically for exercise at the moment, but seems sturdy enough to handle that should I eventually.
One thing I was a bit unsure about at first was the button on strap, I've previously only had clip ones, but this actually works fine.
So yeah, so far can't fault it. I'm glad I saved a bit of cash!
I have replaced the battery just once, I am pretty sure, which seems amazing.
I don't know if this has influenced its longevity, but after every run I rinse the belt and device, separately, under running water and leave to drip dry.
I would buy this item again.
Fast forward to this purchase and my experience couldn't be worse. I managed to set it up and pair it to my phone once, it worked for one workout and then stopped working altogether. Thinking it might be me, I un-paired the device, deleted the app and went through the set up again...nothing changed. So I went onto the wahoo website, went through a the troubleshooting options, nothing seemed to maje any difference at all.
Now it's difficult to rate this product because I know from past experience that it's been a great bit of kit and relatively cheap, I've obviously had a duff unit this time around but it's tainted my opinion a little bit, especially after returning to amazon a week later to find the exact same product in a 'lightning' deal and £5 cheaper again. I know, I know that's nothing to do with wahoo but still - it kinda added salt to my wound.
I'm left wondering just how reliable wahoo is mind because I recently bought a smart turbo trainer off them and I have had connectivity issues with that too - again I've gone through all the troubleshooting and connection still varies. I thought thst might be worth mentioning as it seems like a common trend right now but I'm not reviewing the turbo trainer as I didn't buy that through amazon.
Overall, I'm not certain I would recommend this product to anyone despite having had previous good experience.
Denn während alle Sensoren von Polar und Suunto ausschließlich BT Smart und Garmin ausschließlich ANT+ unterstützen, kann Wahoo beides. Leider ist aber der HF-Sensor nicht so gut wie die Speed & Cadence-Sensoren. Die Genauigkeit passt zwar, aber der Gurt ist meiner Meinung nach eine Fehlkonstruktion: Während man andere HF-Sensoren am Brustgurt befestigt und diesen seitlich zusammenklippt, übernimmt das Zusammenhalten hier der Sensor selber. Der Wahoo-Gurt ist an den Enden bei den Kontakten mit Hartplastik eingefasst, und dieses Plastik ist bei mir beim ersten Gurt bereits nach der ersten Einheit gebrochen. Somit kann man den Gurt dann nicht mehr mit dem Sensor verbinden.
Ja, Vielleicht könnte man das noch selber kleben, aber wer weiß wie lange das hält - der Austausch über Amazon verläuft zum Glück unkompliziert und man ist auf der sicheren Seite. Ich hoffe, der Ersatzgurt hält länger, denn viele ANT+/BT-Smart-Sensoren habe ich nicht gefunden.
Noch kurz zu den Unterschieden zum Tickr X bzw. Tickr Run:
Der Tickr Run ist nur noch aus Restbeständen erhältlich und daher generell nicht zu empfehlen (und z.B. über Amazon gleich teuer wie der bessere Tickr X).
Der Tickr X hat ein paar Funktionen, die man auch nur mit der Wahoo Fitness App nutzen kann:
Trittfrequenz/Laufanalyse, Geschwindigkeit, Wiederholungszähler und Speicherfunktion.
Die Trittfrequenz/Laufanalyse bzw. Geschwindigkeit kommt bei mir über einen eigenen Fußsensor (der auch um einiges genauer messen kann), Wiederholungszähler und Speicherfunktion nutze ich nicht. Hier würde ich dann auch eher zum Polar H10 greifen, der zwar nur BT Smart unterstützt, aber die zugehörige Polar Beat App wurde zuletzt regelmäßig aktualisiert, während die 7-Minute-Workout und die Wahoo RunFit Apps seit ca. 2 Jahren nicht mehr aktualisiert wurden - das ist für mobile Apps ein No-Go. Zudem hat der Polar H10 den deutlich besseren Brustgurt.
