Is 2 years enough

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

Had no complaints until it just stopped working this week after approx. 2 years of (hard) use. Maybe that's normal these days, but my parents' 30 year old dishwasher is still plugging away. As is their old Toyota with 160k on the clock....

Same experience here. Not overly upset about mine given the price point. One thing I noticed is about the tickr vs garmin strap is that the tickr wants to broadcast signal all the time. It would send out BS readings to my computer while laying on a shelf (even unclipped). I wonder if this contributed to the shorter life span. I plan to replace with another tickr as it still seems like the best bluetooth enabled strap even two years down the road.

I don’t think a HR monitor is built to last like a Toyota. Haha. That was a funny comment,

Works Perfectly w Suunto Ambit3

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

For Suunto fans who may be wondering, the Wahoo Tickr works perfectly with my Suunto Ambit3. Synched right up in 30 seconds and has been dead-on accurate.

FAR more accurate (and half the price) than the Suunto Smart Sensor.

Doesn’t last

    I’ve had the tracker for 2 months. Fist 3 weeks it worked great. After that intermittent connectivity, once Bluetooth was connected worked okay. Now I can’t get it to turn on at all. Replaced battery and still won’t turn on.

    It just works

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    No funny business with Wahoo. I get everything I want out of the Tickr!

    Loving It

      I grabbed this because apparently watching your heart rate, watts, cadence, speed, etc is important. It fits just fine and I've never had any issues with it becoming loose. Pretty accurate as far as I can tell.

      Works Great, Sometimes Loosens

        I got this as a replacement to a garmin strap that I broke when I bear hugged a tree. The HRM connected immediately to my garmin bike computer and has worked flawlessly. As others have complained, the snaps aren't completely secure. If you have the band too tight, they'll pop, if you have the band too loose, it'll start to slip as you sweat. So yes, a little harder to dial in the fit, but great HRM performance.

        Doesn't stay on

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: Runs small

        The strap is comfortable and the connectivity is good, but it snaps apart all the time. I did a 20 mile ride this morning and it snapped off 5 times.

        snaps won't stay on

          great HRM in all respects except the snaps on the strap just will not stay attached. bump or touch the thing even slightly and it falls off. can't get good data if it isn't attached to your chest! sent it back and competitive cyclist kindly granted a store credit. Happy with competitive cyclist , not happy with wahoo tickr.

          great value...

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          not getting out to ride as much as I want so (gasp)...dusted off the trainer and rollers and my skinny tire bike from the back of the garage. With smartphone tech (strava, endomondo etc.,) I've not used old-school cycle computers in years. But, wanted something to track distance (cadence) and heart rate (bought the wahoo speed/distance/cadence too) while putting in some miles at home. All the wahoo tech connected up to phone easy and works as promised. Indoor cycling still sucks (not the fault of this device;-0_) but integrating some tech helps. May have to pony up some bucks and try some of the 'virtual rides' that are available when you have speed, cadence and HR... I'm pleased with this wahoo tech.

          Best one out there

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
          • Fit: True to size

          I am a diehard Garmin fan but after returning several HR straps over several years (the standard one, premium one x2) because of transmission and connectivity issues it was time for another option. The TICKR is simple, consistent, and works every time you put it on. A big plus, if you are one of the guys that gets the chafing from the bottom lip of the Garmin HR strap on your sternum (battled for YEARS) this solves that problem.

          First Heart Rate Monitor

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          Since this is my first device. I was surprise how easy (without reading instruction) is to use. I just put it around my chest and boom. It was ON and available to be pair with my devices. I pair it with my apple watch and directly to my iphone (using strava) both work perfectly.

          Agree, Best There Is

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I've had the TICKR for over a year and agree this is the best HRM on the market.

          I've never had connection issues with this ever, works fantastically and easily and it's Bluetooth 4 so it's pretty automatic. As the manual recommends, and like any other HRM, it's best to moisten the sensor pads when you put it on to get a reading. A quick look at the blinking lights on the front and you can see that it's detecting heartrate and if it's connected via Bluetooth.

          As mentioned by some other reviewers the difference between TICKR models is storage of data. Since I use this with my phone in my jersey pocket the regular TICKR was perfect for me and I didn't see a reason to pick a more costly model that stores the data.

          Great monitor

          • Familiarity: I've used it several times

          I usually track my bike rides with strava and just wanted something simple to keep track of my heart rate, so this was my choice. It's pretty easy to use and works without a glitch with strava, plus a bunch of other apps. Just turn on your bluetooth and you're all set.

          Best HRM on the market!

            I have had so many issues with my 3 Garmin straps giving false readings and issues connecting to the Garmin. The Wahoo has no issues and is a HRM you can depend on regardless.

            Best HR monitor on the market!

            • Fit: True to size

            I have been using this device for about 6 months now, and I would defiantly recommend it to a friend! I haven't ever had a problem with it.

            Don't buy it

              Worked the first few times. Then sporadically. Then not at all. Had less than a month.

              Simple Yet Satisfying

              • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

              This is a slick little heart rate monitor. I’ve used it several times and so far I’m happy with it. There are a couple different models of the TICKR, but the basic model has exactly what I need. From the reading I did, the TICKR X has built-in memory, some better controls, and cadence measurement. Not really things I felt like I would use when riding my bike.

              I have always been a little skeptical of heart rate monitors that go around the chest. They look uncomfortable. Fortunately, that was an erroneous notion, at least with the Wahoo TICKR. With a little bit of adjustment I got it to sit comfortably across my chest. I can feel it during my workout, but not any more than a well fitting jersey. The back of the band has a bit of non-slip material that keeps it in place. It does get a little sweaty, but I can handle it.

              Connecting the monitor to the apps on my phone was really easy. The heart rate monitor doesn’t have any buttons but that doesn’t make it difficult to set up. You just give it a couple taps and it starts flashing and searching for a device. I first connected it to Strava. You just go to settings and set it up as an external device. You only need to do that once, and after that every time you open the app it searches for the heart rate monitor. Very simple.

              I also downloaded the Wahoo app. It integrates seamlessly with the heart rate monitor as you would expect. It has some really nice goal features that I think you can only get with Strava Premium. It doesn’t seem to have any social features, but if all you want to do is track you workouts, it is a great option.

              Overall, a great product that I use on a regular basis.
