Wahoo Elemnt Rival

I consider myself a Wahoologan as my essential training products consist of the Wahoo Kickr AXIS, Climb and TICKR X. Recently, I’ve added the Element Rival fitness watch to my arsenal. The Rival as many key features and it is a excellent overall watch. This multisport watch delivers easy transitions with a impressive high technology reliable GPS system. The gorilla glass lens is thin and light weight with a high impact and scratch resistance large ceramic bezel. The impressive USB battery power gives you 14 days in a smart watch mode with about a 24 hour battery life in GPS mode. I have used the dependable TICKR X heart rate for years, this wrist-based optimal technology is incredibly accurate and displays the real time heart rate and calorie burning data. The Rival connects to both Bluetooth and ANT plus for all your additional power meters, speed and cadence technologies. There is In App workout editor giving you precise recording of multiple sport abilities. The setup is simple, pairs seamlessly to your fitness technology with a fully customizable screen. While the unit is a bit pricey for $379, I wish it only had the touchscreen capability. Overall, the Elemnt Rival watch is a impressive first time multi-sport watch from WAHOO and I truly look forward to seeing improvements in their future.
