Wahoo GymConnect Retrofit Kit is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works with some effort... I wrote a review yesterday (not posted), where I somewhat blasted Wahoo and gave the unit a "1 don't buy". Unit didn't work / wouldn't connect to runfit. Despite no real tech support I figured out that at least on a Precor treadmill, you have to immediately start a workout or "quick start" before you really even get on the unit or the communications will drop between app and module. So knowing this, it is now working. Captures speed, incline, distance, HR from treadmill. I've yet to find any other app that will accept a bluetooth treadmill. Note the module won't just connect with a Garmin watch (ie Fenix3hr), as it doesn't have an input for a treadmill. Hopefull more apps to come, including sending a workout to the treadmill (module is supposedly bi-directional and will take data back to control it).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fair with potential to be great I'm having a hard time evaluating the usefulness of the GymConnect. It appears to only work with the RunFit app. My ANT+ HRMs (with ANT+ key and iPad) which will happily connect in the Wahoo Fitness app, will not connect in RunFit. The Polar heart rate (being transmitted by treadmill) is displayed on the RunFit app, but is not recorded. I could purchase a Tickr HRM, but I'm not confident that the GymConnect will pass that data through to the treadmill. To be useful, I want to retain the ability to perform heart rate based treadmill workouts and have the ability to record all data. Wahoo appears to have the capability to make this happen, but thus far, they have failed to make it happen or explain to me why they cannot make it happen.
