Wahoo reinvent popular TICKR and TICKR X

Class-leading heart rate monitors put big features into a slimmer body. TICKR X will now also send enhanced run data to smartwatches.

 

Wahoo, the leader in connected fitness devices and indoor cycling ecosystems, is proud to announce key updates to the popular TICKR family of heart rate monitors. Both TICKR and TICKR X have been redesigned with a new look and updated firmware that enhance their connectivity, power, and comfort.

 

A new, slimmer shape and integrated strap design make the latest TICKR and TICKR X the lightest heart rate monitors available at only 48g (pod and strap together). Both TICKR and TICKR X can now simultaneously pair up to three Bluetooth devices, in addition to ANT+ connections. With an eye toward making TICKR easier to use, the LEDs are now at the top of the pod body, so users can easily check to make sure their devices are connected and recording data. By increasing the battery life by nearly 50%, both the TICKR and TICKR X now allow up to 500 hours of use on a single battery.

 

“We’ve revamped the TICKR and TICKR X to give users class-leading functionality in a design that’s effortless to use and very comfortable to wear,” said Wahoo Product Manager Katie DuPree. “TICKR and TICKR X redefine what you expect from a heart rate monitor by offering unmatched power, comfort, and convenience whether you’re on a quick lunch ride or running a marathon.”

 

Long embraced by cyclists, runners, and fitness enthusiasts of all kinds, the updated TICKR X offers the ability to transmit indoor cycling cadence to the Wahoo Fitness app. TICKR X can now also transmit enhanced running dynamics to compatible smartwatches via ANT+, giving runners real-time access to their cadence, vertical oscillation, and ground contact time. TICKR X also offers runners a proprietary Running Smoothness ® score through the Wahoo Fitness app, helping to improve their efficiency and form. TICKR X can also store up to 50 hours of workout data, which will sync to your smartphone via the Wahoo Fitness app.  

 

The TICKR, long loved for its simplicity and comfort, will now be offered in a new Stealth colorway, complementing Wahoo's distinctive white and blue color scheme. The new TICKR Stealth variant will also be available as a part of ELEMNT ROAM and ELEMNT BOLT Stealth Edition Bundles.
