battery draining after couple days

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I had a Wahoo and a Garmin HRM before. I've chosen Wahoo this time because of the way it locks around the body. After 2 months of using it, it started to drain the battery every week... I've changed the battery already 5 times and it keeps draining out after a couple of uses.

I have literally gone through 4 TICKRs and a TICKR X in the last 6 months. They either come out of the box broken or eventually fail. At this point i have no idea what it could be. Each time is the same...the HR monitor cuts in and out, doesnt read correctly for 20-30 minutes, or gives a lower HR than normal (off by 15-20 BPM). Not sure if it is the strap or a SW issue. Either way its annoying as hell. Wahoo is pretty good with warranties thus the 5 i have received as warranty replacements. Make sure you keep the receipt.

You said exactly what I am experiencing. This is my 2nd wahoo tickr. I read your review to my wife and she said that sounded just like what you explained to me. It is so annoying having to deal with this heart rate monitor every ride. It starts out then half mile into the ride the I notice my heart rate is 30 bpm less than it should be and I take it off and try to reset it. Shows connected to my blue tooth and I ride off thinking all is well to later look at my wahoo element bolt and see the rate isn’t being picked up again. Waste of money this monitor. Not buying a 3rd one.

It works fine for a few months and then it just decides not to work anymore. It took about 6 months for mine to break with normal use. And then I got a warranty one and it broke within a month. Get a different one for sure.

Inaccurate HR readings after 3 months

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

My unit lasted ~3 months before its started to give me inaccurate HR readings (e.g. 140bpm when it should be 170+). Apparently the strap is the problem, which is disappointing because I've always followed instructions to rinse the sweat off after each ride. Wahoo service is good and they are sending a replacement strap. Time will tell if the 2nd one lasts more than 3 months...

This is my second Wahoo Tickr; the first one performed very well and for a long time. This one, a new generation Tickr, performs only marginally for me. It often doesn't pick up my heart rate until partially through my workout and sometimes it won't pick up at all. Though it connects with Bluetooth just fine when I use it with my indoor trainer, it's sort of pointless to have it connected to Zwift when it won't read my heart rate. Disappointed.

My Garmin Vivoactive 3 watch's heartrate monitor seems occasionally erratic and unreliable, so I got the TICKR to either replace or verify my heartrate tracking. Very happy so far (several indoor and outdoor rides)! It paired very easily both with my laptop running Zwift (using the same USB ANT+ dongle to control my trainer) and with my Vivoactive, so I can override the wrist HRM but still use the watch for GPS (and as a watch). I can't independently verify the accuracy, but it definitely seems more accurate and less volatile than what I was seeing with my watch, and it corresponds much more closely with perceived exertion.

***UPDATE*** I was able to get a replacement via Wahoo Customer Support. It was my first time having to contact Wahoo, and I was pleasantly suprised with how helpful and easy the process was. Just finished my ride, and the new HRM worked great. I'll continue to monitor and update as need. Raising my review to 4 stars, product works and Wahoo seems to stand behind there products. My Garmin HRM died after 2 years and I was looking forward to being able to track HR again with this product. It's terrible! I'll be doing VO2 max efforts and it's reading my HR at 130, when my heart is beating out of my chest closer to 185-190. Changed the battery multiple times with no luck. Looking into a return process or warranty process right now.
