Wahoo Fitness ELEMNT BOLT GPS Bike Computer Bundle $349.99
Streamlined and sophisticated.
The ELEMNT BOLT Computer Bundle is a streamlined update to the original ELEMNT, offering an impressive 1.5-watt savings with 50% less air resistance. This might not seem like a big deal, but it saves something in the magnitude of 12.6 seconds over a 40-kilometer time trial at 21 miles per hour, which can be the difference between winning and losing. Not only is it incredibly svelte for a slippery profile, but the integrated out-front mount provides a cleaner aesthetic while tilting ever-so-slightly for quick reading. Seeing as how the original was a hit around the office and with riding partners alike, the ELEMNT BOLT is a solid choice for competitive riders seeking all the bells and whistles of the original ELEMNT, but in a sleek, aerodynamic package.
Gaining watts is only half the story, with the ELEMNT pleasing the tech-savvy gurus in all of us with its GPS-derived stats, alongside a host of bundled ANT+/Bluetooth Smart sensors for gaining heart rate, cadence, power, and speed data. Set-up is a breeze with Wahoo's free Companion app dialing in every last detail, such as customized workouts, as well as syncing with the provided sensors and your favorite smartphone apps. Speaking of popular apps, it works with Strava Live Segments, so you can gain real-time progress to complete your goals. Another of our favorite features is the Turn-by-Turn directions, which receives data from your smartphone to deliver accurate bike routes around town and the countryside.
This ELEMNT BOLT bundle comes with dual-band sensors that are both ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart compatible, so you can use them with a myriad of cycling computers and electronic devices, such as your smartphone or tablet. The RPM Cadence Sensor accurately tracks cadence without a magnet, sleekly mounting to your crank arm or neatly tucking inside your shoe. For accurate speed measurement, the RPM Speed Sensor neatly mounts to your front hub with its secure silicone casing. And because serious cyclists demand heart rate monitoring for a number of exercise and training regimens, Wahoo includes a TICKR Heart Rate Monitor that's compatible with numerous smartphones, Apple Watch, third-party apps, and bike computers alike.

Great Bike Computer!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I rresearched bike computers for several months and finally decided on the Wahoo Elmnt Bolt. Set up was easy using your cell phone makes screen set up a lot easier that other computers that require multiple clicks on the tiny bike computer screen. It pairs easily with the Wahoo sensors as well as my ANT+ power meters. I would strongly recommend this product.

I did so much research and comparison between Garmin 520 and this. Decided on this based on simply the battery last longer. It used up 50% from a full charge for a 7 hour ride. My ride buddy has 520, which also a good unit, but I didn't like the color UI besides the battery. It is very easy to read under bright daylight or any weather condition. The mobile app is easy to use and share to Strava too. Huge upgrade from Cateye and using Strava app alone.
I have had the Element Bolt for three weeks and maybe a dozen rides, road and mountain. Switched from a Garmin 510. It is definitely a huge step up in software and hardware. It was very easy to set up and go and the more I learned about it's capabilities and refined my display the better it got. I like that if you want to change bikes they make it easy including speed and cadence. All of this only works this well if you pair it with a smart phone, otherwise it would just be an average computer. I use Strava and it automatically downloads my ride as soon as I hit the end of ride button. By the time I get in the house it is on my Strava page with all of the details. The only downside is that the cadence sensor does not always work under 65 rpm. Climbing on my mountain bike means that it will often drop out.
Element is the next generation, Garmin has some catching up to do.
Could it be any easier?

I don't think so. Pairing with my phone and sensors was seamless and a snap. The screen is easy to read, the buttons are easy to use (even with lobster gloves). All without being too large - it doesn't look like i have a tablet sticking off the front of my bike.
