    Do not buy

    This Is the worst heart rate monitor I have ever used. I read poor reviews before buying and dismissed them as people whinging. I thought if it was for sale on the Apple store it would be the most compatible option for the Apple Watch. Be warned it will not stay connected.

    In addition even if you can get it to stay connected it won’t do the running dynamics with the Apple Watch alone, you need to have the phone with you at all times or these features to work.

    Support were no help, just confirmed that despite their misleading advertising its Really not compatible with Apple Watch.

    I’ve never been so disappointed with a product. Honestly don’t waste your money.

    Unreliable, overblown. I finally did the right thing and destroyed it.

    There was a great pleasure in swinging this piece of crapp as hard as I could at the tile floor and watch it shatter since I have wasted so much time trying to get what should be a simple device to accurately do it's BASIC job let alone all the hype features.
    I paid extra for the extra features but I paid dearly for Wahoo's crapp quality. CONSTANTLY switched to showing double heart rate.
    I am a geek, I know how to work with complexity or non-intuitive. but this is just a lousy product.

    Love the Tickr

    I use it all the time. Gives you accurate reading. I never workout without it.

    It worked well for the first week, then...

    It was very good during the first week: all features worked well. Then, it died. I restarted it, replaced battery, but nothing.
    It was too expensive for only a few days.

    Worked only a few times

    Worked great for first 10 runs, then started reading exactly half my heart rate. Was able to reach a very nice live technical support person, but they make you jump through multiple hoops before agreeing to take it back. Went through battery flip reset and it worked once before going back to half rate. Then they wanted to try resetting in other ways. Would have been fine if they just replaced it and the new one worked flawlessly, but not worth the hassle to me. Bought another type of sensor and have been happy ever since.

    Bluetooth Problems

    It takes forever to connect to the phone via Bluetooth, and sometimes doesn't connect at all, but once connected, it's not bad...

    the tickerx is very complete and accurate

    Nifty gadget

    This nifty gadget tells me exactly what I need to know about my workouts (calories burnt etc). Really helped me push my workout to the next level! Strap is slightly uncomfortable on me though.

    Less than satisfying experience

    Having owned the Tickr X for a year now, I get no more value out of it than any other heart rate monitor. I still have t carry my phone while running, so the memory function is useless to me. Without the phone, it does not record cadence, so it really can't do everything it claims to do at the same time. Even with the phone, the running metrics data is hard to decipher. Maybe it is useful on a treadmill, but too hard to read on the road. Cycling Cadence cannot be used by any app other than Wahoo apps, so it has limited use. Better off buying a cadence meter and separate heart rate monitor. Even Wahoos own apps don't record all the data reliabley, and tech support can't do anything about that. In the year that I have owned it, I have seen no improvements rolled out, so I think Wahoo has given up on the X to concentrate on other areas. 3 stars as a tech demonstrator, but lack of integration leaves the overall experience disappointing for a premium priced product.

    Callibration does not work

    The TRICKR X monitor has three basic features:
    monitors heart rate and displays directly on the mobile screen or registers for future transfer to the phone,
    allows to count repetitive movements of our workout,
    measures the distance passed on the treadmill indoors.

    Till now I have used Garmin 310 XT monitor. For years it worked well. However, I decided to run on the treadmill. The Wahoo TRICR X seemed to be the best for that purpose.

    Classical HR monitors that out HR rate transfer via bluetooth to our smartphones are commonly known and can be bought relatively cheaply. The crucial feature in Wahoo is the accelerometer that detects our motion and integrates our run to say what distance is passed in time ( also velocity vs. time or distance passed).

    The product information says that the vibration signals confirm our taps that switch between go/pause/stop state. I tried, it worked. Immediately the firmware was updated to „save the energy” when used. And the vibration communication stopped. It occurred that manufacturer removed that option without telling it to the customer.

    Never mind. The treadmill and the first distance passed. The measure by the TRICR showed 20 per cent less than in reality. I went to calibration. There are two ways: a short one (you run 2 minutes at a constant speed and introduces that speed to the smartphone application) and a longer one and more accurate (you repeat the action three times, at low, medium and high speed). The short calibration displayed errors for plenty of times:

    The longer calibration, ie. 3 times 2 minutes worked (looking at the screen no error appeared), but all the parameters in the application or in TRICR X remained unchanged. One can run at any speed and calibrate as he wishes, the TICKR X displayed always 15-20% less than it was displayed on the treadmill desk. Everybody knows that calibration at a treadmill speed for example 9 km/h should show the same speed when we continue the same run.

    The producer advised me to replace the unit. I obtained the second one. The history was repeated. Nothing was better. The diagram of the pace displayed on my iPhone showed that my uniform speed was registered as a zig-zag line (the real speed 8.5 km/h, the pace about 7 min/km).

    Note that the heart rate monitor should be used with a smartphone, to keep the proper intensity and protect against excessive effort. Thus the internal memory in the unit is unnecessary.


    Two successive monitor belts exhibit identical faults.
    The calibration does not work.
    Accelerometers are poor and they generate noise that can not be processed.
    It works if you are not interested in accurate pace diagram and real distance. However, then a simple HR monitor costs four times less.


    I returned again the unit to the seller.

    Very accurate heart rate tracking

    Very accurate heart rate and cadence tracking. I think it works best with the RunFit app. At the moment since I'm also using Endomondo but Endomondo doesn't support linking with TickrX so what I do is I first use RunFit to track my exercise, export in TCX format and then import the same using web version of Endomondo. Overall both heart rate and cadence tracking are very accurate. The strap is also comfortable to wear.

    This is awsome

    I bought Wahoo TICKR X 3 weeks ago and so far it is above my expectation. I solely bought it to correctly record my heart rate and calculates the calories burned when i do my outdoor cycling. I came to find out about the 7 minutes workout by Wahoo, that was the game change. The workouts and how sensitive the device to your move is incredible. If you can afford Ticker X go for it instead just for the ticker which is only heart monitor.

    Not too bad

    I used to polar v800 and polar h7 heart rate monitor. I think sport watch need to more devolopment because they need to accsesorries ( heart rate monitor, cadense sensor) and battery life is too short. This product can be work without phone additionally can be measure cadense, and speed. On the other hand chest strep is too thight. Finally this product is cost effective if you dont use smart watch. I have been using for a month and Im satisfy.

    Okay if you like wasting your time trying to connect

    When it works, the heart rate is spot on. Unfortunately the connectivity to the various wahoo apps is stunningly unreliable. I seem to be doing more of the ... Connect, retry, double tap, restart, unclip, forget, reconnect ... And less of my workout. It's going in the closet until there's an update.

    No 3D Data

    Cadence and HR work but it doesn't want to produce 3D data - ie no running dynamics. Also can't calibrate it as the calibration routine crashes the App so Pace is useless.
    Great concept/idea poorly implemented.
