TICKR FIT Optical Heart Rate Monitor Armband

The Wahoo TICKR FIT Optical Heart Rate Monitor Armband offers an alternative to chest straps monitor. With sweat-proof technology and real-time data transfer, you'll be able to track your heart rate and calories burned while you're crushing sprints, putting in some miles on foot, or busting out strength training at the gym.

The TICKR FIT reads blood flow in the arm and sends exercise data Bluetooth and ANT+ to your cycling computer, smartwatch, or apps on your phone for immediate access to data to improve your training. It comes with two different adjustable armbands for users with various arm sizes, ensuring you can cinch things down just right for a fit that's both comfortable and secure. It recharges with an included USB cord for up to 30 hours of battery life in each full charge. Wahoo made the TICKR Fit to run with a huge array of apps including Strava, TrainerRoad, Nike+ Running, Runkeeper, and MapMyFitness, as well as with Apple watches and Apple TV by opting to either plug in directly, or utilizing Wahoo RunFit, Beachbody on Demand, or the 7 Minute Workout app.

Love it

Familiarity:
I've used it several times
Fit:
True to size

Always found chest straps restrictive. Wrist HRM are uncomfortable for me, but better than chest. Forearm is perfect - I forget it's there. No issues syncing to ANT+ and Zwift, to Garmin bike computers, and to CatEye bike computers. Discovered immediately. No fuss. The only downside is yet another device-specific charger. Also, if you want to buy replacement straps, Wahoo forces you to buy both sizes in a 2-pack, instead of just one or two of the same size.

I just got this heart rate monitor to replace my Mio which I've had for several years and doesn't seem to recharge now. The Wahoo Tickr Fit is great. It works well, is easy to use, and has a long battery life. I'm very satisfied with the new unit. It was remarkably east to pair with my Garmin head units.

Not sure what the deal is with this thing but it worked well for the first weeks/months but, all of a sudden, it would just drop off the display on my Element Bolt. My heart rate would be replaced with a couple of dashes, then out of the blue, it would re-appear...and then drop out again. I can watch it pair with a full signal and then it just disconnects. Oddly enough, it works fine when paired with my Zwift setup iMac/Kickr/Kickr Climb. It doesn't drop out at all. Not sure what the deal is but I'm back to using my regular HR straps because I don't want to keep messing with this thing during my ride.

Wish it worked better

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I hate chest straps, so I was excited to get my TICKR FIT and use it. When it works properly, I love it. The problem is, it's inconsistent. To Wahoo's credit, they replaced it - twice - and I've continued to have the same issues with the replacements as the original. Also, I've experienced the same issues when connected to a Wahoo BOLT as I do with my new Garmin 830... so its definitely the TICKR FIT that is the issue and not the bike computer(s). The issue is that sometimes the FIT will just stop responding - and drop out - OR it'll keep sending the bike computer the same heartrate measurement and not change. i.e. I come to a stop and drink and what-not and it's still broadcasting that my HR is 175.... or I'll do a hard climb and it'll still be broadcasting that my HR is 110. It doesn't do this all the time, but it does it enough that it's infuriating and makes me hate the device. I really am not a fan of chest straps, so I continue to use the FIT... but I'll eventually replace it with another brand and be done with this thing. I honestly wouldn't buy another until they work out the connectivity kinks.

Does the job well

This is a great alternative to a chest strap. It works well and pairs easily with Peloton and the Wahoo Bolt. Solid construction and easy setup. Only small gripe is the lack of a battery status indicator to know when to recharge.

Bluetooth Pairing Trouble

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I have a Kickr Trainer, Kicker Bike, multiple cadence sensors that work fine with Zwift/Mac except the Tickr. Wahoo claims it is an issue with Zwift/Mac, yet their trainers pair fine with the same setup. I had a Scosche Rhythm+ armband HR monitor that works fine. Looks like I need to go back to Scosche.

Having this issue to with my Mac. Sometimes it connects more often not.

Better than a wrist or chest strap

True to size

I don’t like chest straps and the Mio wrist HRM never worked well. This stays on my forearm well and has consistent readings. Also... with the upcoming Wahoo Kickr firmware update it should allow single-channel BT connection to an AppleTV which is a plus if you have ever tried to pair both a cadence sensor and HRM while indoors.

Perfect for Indoor Cycling

I purchased this to pair with the Peloton app for cycling workouts. The bluetooth connection works perfectly with the app, and it's comfortable to wear. Just what I needed!

I hate chest-strap HRMs

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

This is a great alternative to chest-strap HRMs! I have always hated those. This holds up perfectly well for road cycling -- not sure if it'd do alright on the trails. Don't see why it wouldn't, but I cannot speak to it. Be careful tightening; it can get a bit pinch-y if you aren't careful. Otherwise, its simple, comfortable, and works perfectly so far.

Chest Strap or Arm?

I found this weird. I ended up returning this because I found the chest strap HR monitor to be more comfortable. It felt tight and awkward around my forearm and I didn't have confidence that it would stay in place on mountain bike rides. HR function works fine and appears accurate.
