1TICKR Heart Rate Monitor is rated out of 5 by 159.Rated 4 out of 5 by Brooksie73 from Accurate BPM with limited data I purchased Tickr to track BPM more for health than for fitness. My boyfriend had a-fib and his heart rate was all over the place. We needed a reliable monitor to get a handle on his heart rate. Tickr provided that valuable data. We did find that Tickr had a hard time finding his heart rate while on beta blockers. Tickr picked my heart rate up immediately, but it took several tries to get his. I use it for other activities such as walking and workouts. The only disappointing thing is that it doesn't store data to sync. You need to have your phone close by. If you want a monitor that stores and syncs, you need to get another model.Date published: 2016-01-25Rated 5 out of 5 by asjohnson from Very Good Heart Rate Monitor. I bought the TICKR last year when I wanted to upgrade my old heart rate monitor and it's ran strong this whole year. I haven't even changed the battery yet. I really like how it has a blue flashing LED on one side and a red flashing LED on the other side. When you strap it on you "know" it is working when the blue light flashes. I think the red light represents your heart rate so you know everything is working. It is the quickest of my wahoo sensors to connect to my MAC and my GARMIN. The use of use and reassurance with the LED lights makes this the best heart rate monitor on the market.Date published: 2015-09-18Rated 4 out of 5 by Brando from My favorite HR monitor. Since this is my third HR strap I can compare it to other brands that I have owned. 1. Best feature is ANT+ and Bluetooth. 2. Strap is very comfortable to wear. I have used the HR monitor with my iPhone 5s and Garmin edge 500 and Garmin forerunner 25 without issues. The strap has very little plastic and isn't icy cold when I put it on. It stays in place when cycling. When running I have had problems with the back sliding down and falling off at the end of my run. That was very annoying. My solution was using the adjustment to make the strap tighter next time. I liked it so much I bought one for my daughter too.Date published: 2016-02-05Rated 5 out of 5 by RumRiver from Great HRM! You won't be disappointed I have used Polar, Sigma, Garmin, and Bluetooth straps over the years. I love this strap because it is now the only one I need. The ant+ allows using it with my vivosmart and Garmin Edge, as well as our gym's spin bikes. It also works with all my iPhone apps. It doesn't work with polar based cardio machines, but that is not important as I use either my vivosmart or iPhone. The strap is super comfortable and use a very good closure (compared to the Polar BT hook and loop). The indicator lights are also great to have to troubleshoot connectivity/working issues, which by the way, have been none. I should note my wife has one also that she uses with bikes and her Apple Watch. Simply my best HRM ever.Date published: 2016-02-07Rated 5 out of 5 by maxifus from Awesome HRM, thin, light and with BT & ANT+ I previously owned another ANT+ HRM so wasn't expecting much else from BT connectivity. But the TICKR is lighter, thinner, more anatomic and easy to use than anything else I've ever tried. It's really sensitive, with others straps I always needed to moist the contacts, but with the TICKR is incredible how sensitive it is, sometimes it turns automatically on just when I hold it in my hands before attaching the strap to my chest. Awesome. As a plus, the leds in it come very handy to know when its turn on, paired and sensing. Definitely the best HRM out there.Date published: 2015-09-18Rated 5 out of 5 by Raghu from BLE & ANT+ compatible HR sensor I use the TICKR to monitor my HR while cycling. I've paired it with my iPhone 6 over Bluetooth 4.0 using the Wahoo Fitness app to analyse the workout stats post-ride. However, while riding I check my current HR along with other stats on my Count 14+ display unit (mounted on my handle bar) which is ANT+ compatible. Thus the TICKR is versatile in its ability to simultaneously communicate with any Bluetooth smartphone and any ANT+ display unit like a Garmin watch (for runners) or a bike-computer. The Wahoo app has the capability to upgrade the firmware making this hardware future-proof to advancements in connectivity and compatibility. I have been using the TICKR for over 6 months now without any technical issues and would highly recommend buying the TICKR to track your HR during your workouts.Date published: 2015-09-19Rated 4 out of 5 by kbohls157 from Works great once you get it setup I was really looking forward to getting my TICKR Heart Rate Monitor and I have been pretty pleased with it so far. I use it for cycling and it appears to be accurate in its tracking during my rides, which is convenient. My only big complaint with the device is the included instructions are poor - when they say to lick the contacts they mean the black strips on the actual band and not the small dots on the unit. Along with this it can be sometimes hard to pick up a Bluetooth signal with the Wahoo Fitness app, but it doesn't appear to have ever dropped/stop recording mid ride which is an improvement over my Wahoo Blue SC.Date published: 2015-12-28Rated 3 out of 5 by Luke from Doesn't connect well to Galaxy S5 I purchased this and the Blue SC to be synced with the Wahoo app, MapMyFitness app, and the Strava app in lieu of purchasing a Garmin. I should have gone with the Garmin. Around 3 hours into any long ride, all Wahoo software/devices stopped working and I ended up losing my data. After two or three times of this happening, I just got rid of it all and used the Strava app. I've not had any problems since, but do not have HR data with Strava. If you are looking to use this with Wahoo devices and an iPhone, you might have some luck. I'd stay away from it if you are using a Galaxy S5.Date published: 2015-09-18
