To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I'm actually glad the speed sensor failed after two 45 minute turbo sessions because it allowed me to see how diabolical the build quality is. There's no doubting that before the failure I was absolutely delighted with the performance of both sensors. Easy to install and worked a dream with the Sufferfest app. I was really annoyed to find the speed sensor conked out after two short rides. I thought ok, not the end of the world, it might just be the battery. I still don't know if that's the case as I couldn't remove the cover. Despite following the instructions, all that happened was the flimsy plastic was damaged. So badly that I gave up. There's no way I'd buy these again. I've sent them back for a refund and bought Garmin instead.
Bought these for use on my turbo bike. I had jerry-rigged a bike computer to work from my back wheel, but the wire was only long enough to allow me to fix it halfway up my crossbar-it was rubbish. Out of the box they look good. The rubber housings are nice, and very easy to fit to the bike with the stretchy fixing bands and cable ties. I downloaded the Wahoo Fitness app and the units paired with it immediately. The speed and distance readings were very close to the bike computer (which I had left in situ for comparison). I also manually counted my cadence against a stopwatch, and that was also accurate. I cannot comment on their longevity as I have only used them a dozen times. I have not used them outdoors and don't intend to. Up to now, full marks and highly recommended.
I’m a big fat fatty of man- wash myself with a rag on a stick, local takeaways Know me by name, eat butter out the tub, the lot. Bought these to use Zwift on my iPad and loose the chub, and it’s working, I’m shedding pounds like crazy. £12.99 a month to be precise for the Zwift subscription.
Before buying this product I read the reviews and because there were only a few that said it had problems connecting I bought it regardless. The cadence sensor as practical as it is to install with various option is useless anyway or so I thought as there is a method to attach it to your shoe. I used this method to start. The sensor connected to my phone and the Wahoo app but didn't register cadence when I rode. When I search for post ride information it showed intermittent information as if it picked up movement on occasion while on the ride. So, rubbish in, rubbish out as far as the data is concerned.
I then tried it to attach it to the peddle crank and this seems to work. So, my advice is that it works on the peddle crank arm only and worth it if you are happy with that. It's a generally recommended way to use cadence devices anyway but if you were thinking of putting on your shoe good luck.
Only Used on turbo trainer with Zwift using ant+ so far but seems ok. These devices also work with Bluetooth apps on iphone (unlike Garmin kit which is limited to ant+ only). Purchased this to go with my forthcoming Hammerhead Karoo computer (which supports both formats and all current transponders).
Using my sensors with the Cyclmeter app in iPhone.
Easy to install, easy to get connected using the app I use. Just spin the wheel to wake up the speed sensor and turn the pedals for the cadence sensor. Bluetooth on, the sensors connect easily.
Really happy with the cadence sensor, feels accurate. I have stopped using the speed sensor though because it also calculates distance. Started using it on routes I’d done previously and found the data from the sensor was not as accurate as the data from the GPS on my phone. I compared gpx files from both ways of collecting the data on various mapping software, the speed sensor data is about a mile out (over the real one). Shame really but one less Bluetooth accessory connected to my phone.
Shipping and handling was 5 stars, when sensors arrived had trouble to pair them to wahoo android app using their manual and instructions so I installed sensors on a bike / shoe and spin them, then they paired without problems. Sometimes it takes some time for the app to find sensors before ride. During ride sensors read speed well with some lag like all Bluetooth devices. All and all they do their job well for now. The build quality is god awful with the cheapest plastic casing you can find, the slot where you're supposed to insert the coin to open the casing to replace the battery is too shallow and on 1 sensor I damaged the plastic while I removed batteries, I'm not the first to report this. 4stars are without build quality as I will see the durability of sensors but they feel really cheap compared to their tIcker heart rate monitor.
Don't waste your money. Total rubbish. Constantly start and stop with these things, that's if you can even get them to connect together. Nothing more frustrating than knocking your pan in to find that once again these connection has dropped, and your allegedly moving at 2mph! Never been so frustrated and disappointed in a product ever!
