Why We Like The Elemnt Bolt GPS Bike Computer
Wahoo's Elemnt Bolt GPS Bike Computer features a host of new and advanced features for reliable navigation no matter if we're riding around town or questing on a weekend tour. The Bolt is designed with a streamlined body shape that reduces drag, which makes sense considering it's a device that hangs off the front of our bike, and wind-slicing aerodynamics. It features an easy setup to customize our preferred data fields and metrics with the Elemnt Companion App, and 16 GB of memory for map and route storage so we never forget where we're going and where we've been. Plus, on-device navigation features tools like "Take Me To" and "Retrace Route" so we always know where we're going, even when our smartphone stays in our pocket. When we get off track, the Bolt will nudge us back in the right direction with on-demand rerouting and it will also find the shortest way back to the start of our ride in case we need to bail due to an incoming storm or an unforeseen issue with our bike.

Worth the upgrade from V1
- I've used it several times
- True to size
I've been using the original Bolt for 2 years. The original Bolt is still a great computer with great battery life and reliability, but it's not without faults. The biggest one is the quirky navigation which requires way too many steps (and some luck) to load onto the device. If you don't need nav, the V1 would probably be great for your needs. The V2 also adds the color screen which is helpful for highlighting wattage/heart rate when you're pushing. It also seems to do a better job of keeping in sync with starred Strava segments and saved routes. So far so good. My one feature request is the ability to create workouts and save them to the device, just like you can with routes.
