Real time data with comfort perks.

Sleek and simplified, the Wahoo TICKR FIT Optical Heart Rate Monitor Armband tosses bulky chest straps to the wayside for a boost in comfort while you push your performance to its peak. With sweat-proof technology and real time data transfer, you'll be able to track your heart rate and calories burned while you're crushing sprints, putting in some miles on foot, or busting out strength training at the gym.

Packed with technology, the TICKR FIT uses optical monitors to track your heart rate by using light to measure blood flow, a process called photoplethysmography, or PPG for short, which yields the most accurate data for pulse sensing available in wearable devices currently. It sends data through using both Bluetooth and ANT+ signals to communicate directly with your cycling computer, smart watch, or apps on your phone for immediate access to data to improve your training. For easy synching, the monitor features LED lights to indicate power, connection, and transmission of either Bluetooth or ANT+ signals (or both), saving you from the dismay of finding no data transfer after an intense workout.

The TICKR FIT comes with two different adjustable arm bands for users with various arm sizes, ensuring you can cinch things down just right for a fit that's both comfortable and secure. It recharges with an included USB cord for up to 30 hours of battery life in each full charge. Wahoo made the TICKR Fit to run with a huge array of apps including Strava, TrainerRoad, Nike+ Running, Runkeeper, and MapMyFitness, as well as with Apple watches and Apple TV by opting to either plug in directly, or utilizing Wahoo RunFit, Beachbody on Demand, or the 7 Minute Workout app.

  • Get real time data with a boost of comfort
  • Communicates calorie and heart rate data instantaneously
  • Both Bluetooth and ANT+ equipped for wireless connection
  • Advanced performance material is sweat resistant and washable
  • USB rechargeable battery offers up to 30 hours of run time
  • Know when you're synched up with LED indicators
  • Two adjustable bands included for comfort in all sizes
  • Compatible with a huge array of third party apps and computers
  • Does not serve as an ANT+ bridge

    Wish it worked better

    I've put it through the wringer

    I hate chest straps, so I was excited to get my TICKR FIT and use it. When it works properly, I love it. The problem is, it's inconsistent. To Wahoo's credit, they replaced it - twice - and I've continued to have the same issues with the replacements as the original. Also, I've experienced the same issues when connected to a Wahoo BOLT as I do with my new Garmin 830... so its definitely the TICKR FIT that is the issue and not the bike computer(s). The issue is that sometimes the FIT will just stop responding - and drop out - OR it'll keep sending the bike computer the same heartrate measurement and not change. i.e. I come to a stop and drink and what-not and it's still broadcasting that my HR is 175.... or I'll do a hard climb and it'll still be broadcasting that my HR is 110. It doesn't do this all the time, but it does it enough that it's infuriating and makes me hate the device. I really am not a fan of chest straps, so I continue to use the FIT... but I'll eventually replace it with another brand and be done with this thing. I honestly wouldn't buy another until they work out the connectivity kinks.

    Does the job well

    I've used it several times
    True to size

    This is a great alternative to a chest strap. It works well and pairs easily with Peloton and the Wahoo Bolt. Solid construction and easy setup. Only small gripe is the lack of a battery status indicator to know when to recharge.

    Bluetooth Pairing Trouble

    I've used it several times

    I have a Kickr Trainer, Kicker Bike, multiple cadence sensors that work fine with Zwift/Mac except the Tickr. Wahoo claims it is an issue with Zwift/Mac, yet their trainers pair fine with the same setup. I had a Scosche Rhythm+ armband HR monitor that works fine. Looks like I need to go back to Scosche.

    Having this issue to with my Mac. Sometimes it connects more often not.

    Better than a wrist or chest strap

    I've used it several times
    True to size

    I don’t like chest straps and the Mio wrist HRM never worked well. This stays on my forearm well and has consistent readings. Also... with the upcoming Wahoo Kickr firmware update it should allow single-channel BT connection to an AppleTV which is a plus if you have ever tried to pair both a cadence sensor and HRM while indoors.

    Perfect for Indoor Cycling

    I've used it several times

    I purchased this to pair with the Peloton app for cycling workouts. The bluetooth connection works perfectly with the app, and it's comfortable to wear. Just what I needed!

    I hate chest-strap HRMs

    I've put it through the wringer

    This is a great alternative to chest-strap HRMs! I have always hated those. This holds up perfectly well for road cycling -- not sure if it'd do alright on the trails. Don't see why it wouldn't, but I cannot speak to it. Be careful tightening; it can get a bit pinch-y if you aren't careful. Otherwise, its simple, comfortable, and works perfectly so far.

    Chest Strap or Arm?

    I returned this product before using it
    True to size
    6` 0"
    160 lbs

    I found this weird. I ended up returning this because I found the chest strap HR monitor to be more comfortable. It felt tight and awkward around my forearm and I didn't have confidence that it would stay in place on mountain bike rides. HR function works fine and appears accurate.
