Wahoo Fitness ANT+ and accessories review
Wahoo Fitness takes the Apple iPhone to another level as a high-end training tool, by making it work with the ANT+ wireless protocol. This means that with the small ‘dongle’ inserted, the phone can pick up data from almost all top-end cycling and ﬁtness gadgets.
This includes the heart rate, cadence and speed sensors made for Garmin’s GPS bike computer range, PowerTap and SRM power meters, and Nike’s running sensors. To showcase the data you can collect, Wahoo Fitness have their own free app called Fisica Fitness, and we tested this on a 3G iPhone with both Wahoo’s own speed and cadence sensor and HR strap, and the same devices from Garmin.
It worked seamlessly with all of them, and a PowerTap hub, thus marrying up Garmin Edge-like data collection and display to a seemingly endless supply of third-party apps. The full bike pack, which includes the cadence/speed sensor, HR strap and a weatherproof sensor case with dongle, will soon be available for about £150.
