1TICKR Heart Rate Monitor is rated out of 5 by 57.Rated 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 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: 2015-09-18Rated 3 out of 5 by Jyoung from Works fine except battery I've been using this heart rate monitor for about 6 months. I have no problems getting it to connect with strava so no complaints there. I also lIke that it attaches the band together via the heart rate monitor. This way the band opens up lIke a belt instead of having to slide it on and off. My only issue is I have already had to replace the battery twice. I take it off when I'm done cycling and I completely remove it from the band, but it still seems to go through batteries faster than I would have expected. I'm new to this technology though, so I don't know if this is typical.Date published: 2015-09-26Rated 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 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 KevinQ from Better than the "bigger" names. I bought my wife an other manufacturer's HRM and when it was no good I bought her another other manufacturer's HRM and then a Wahoo for myself, my wife is now jealous of me. I spent twice as much for my wife's systems and they only work half the time with the HRM cutting out in the middle of workouts, etc.so her calorie burn rates are highly suspect. I have not had one second of issue with my Wahoo and the accuracy is better than any fitness tracker I have tried. I have even used my wife's equipment and the Wahoo is much more consistent.Date published: 2015-09-19Rated 5 out of 5 by The Pedaler from comfortable strap and easily paired I've had this for a few months now and have been very pleased. I tend to have to replace batteries in my heart rate monitors every couple months, but this one seems to be going strong. The strap is a little wider and softer, so it ends up not being quite so noticeable as the narrower stiffer bands offered by other brands. It pairs to just about anything I wanted it to without much hassle. Also, the blinking led lights always catch peoples attention before team training rides and my races.Date published: 2015-09-30Rated 5 out of 5 by Blacklung from Just What The Doctor Ordered I purchased my TICKR approximately 3 months ago to aid in my recovery from a heart attack. My doctor wanted me to get on the treadmill and begin raising my heart rate to certain percentages and my TICKR coupled with the Wahoo fitness app has been an invaluable tool on my road to recovery. It performs flawlessly and has been spot on when checked against a manual pulse reading. The ability to export your workout to My Fitness Pal is a great plus. Highly recommended!!!!Date published: 2015-09-18
