Wahoo Fitness, the leader in workout apps and smartphone connected fitness devices, is partnering with Diana Riesler for the 2015 season. Diana Riesler is the 2013 ETU Long Distance Champion and 2014 Ironman Malaysia Champion. As a 5 times Ironman podium and 2 times sub 9-hour finisher, Diana is one of the leading female long distance triathletes in the world and one of the fastest bike competitors on the circuit. She holds several bike course records.

Wahoo is proud to provide Diana with the cutting edge technology and performance metrics that enable her to monitor her athletic conditioning as she prepares for Top 10 at Ironman Hawaii 2015 and the podium at Challenge Roth 2015.

Through this world class sponsorship, Diana will train exclusively on a Wahoo KICKR Indoor Power Trainer, a TICKR X Workout Tracker and a Blue SC Speed & Cadence Sensor. Diana was born in Jena, Germany, and is coached by Jo Spindler as a member of professional triathlon team TeamTRIPEP. More info about Diana: www.diana-riesler.com and at her blog www.velomotion.de as well as her team’s website: www.team-tripep.com

After recently placing Top-5 at the Ironman South African Championship and setting another bike course record with a superb 5:16h bike split, Diana had great things to say about Wahoo’s product line:

“I am very happy to officially be partnering with Wahoo and the continued use of their state-of-the-art, innovative products. I love the KICKR which is simply the most advanced turbo trainer I’ve ever ridden. And Wahoo’s easy to use speed, cadence and heart rate devices make life a lot easier.”

“Challenging indoor sessions on a turbo trainer are a substantial part of Diana’s training program,” said coach, Jo Spindler. “There’s no question in my mind that the Wahoo KICKR trainer will give Diana another competitive edge in her already exceptional racing. Wahoo’s KICKR, TICKR X and Blue SC are the perfect devices to accurately monitor and analyze Diana’s training progress.”

“Wahoo loves to see our technology in the hands of the world’s top athletes,” said Chip Hawkins, CEO of Wahoo Fitness. “We designed our hardware and software to provide the very best training experience, be it power based workouts on the KICKR indoor trainer or heart rate training regimes using the TICKR X workout tracker. We wish Diana the best of luck in 2015.”

Wahoo Fitness Integration with Apple Watch

Wahoo Fitness, the leader in workout apps and smartphone connected devices, has a variety of integrations with the Apple Watch.

First up is the TICKR X Workout Tracker and the 7 Minute Workout App with the Apple Watch. Wahoo’s 7 Minute Workout App can be activated on the Watch and users can then complete the full workout with audio and on-screen prompts guiding the way. The TICKR X connects to the Watch via the 7 Minute Workout App. It must initially be synced via the 7 Minute app on your iPhone. Once paired, users will also see reps automatically counted during the workout and heart rate displayed on the Watch. When using your TICKR X with the 7 Minute Workout App, your iPhone must be nearby for rep counting and heart rate to be transmitted.

Secondly, Wahoo’s line of TICKR heart rate monitors (TICKR, TICKR Run, and TICKR X) can connect directly to the Apple Watch and used in the Workout app as an alternative method for collecting heart rate data. According to Apple Support, “to pair an external heart rate monitor with your Apple Watch, tap the Settings app on the Home screen, then tap Bluetooth and select it under Health Devices.” The only data available via this connection is heart rate. Apple also recommends keeping your iPhone nearby for the Workout app in order to get the best measurement.

TICKRAppleWatch

“Wahoo Fitness was the first company to bring heart rate training to the iPhone with our entire line of sensors we are excited to continue bridging the gap between iOS devices and fitness”, says Chip Hawkins, CEO of Wahoo Fitness. “With so many people using their iPhone and now the Apple Watch to track fitness data, we’re focused on continuing to research and design products and apps that promote a happy and healthy lifestyle.”

The 7 Minute Workout, first published in the American College of Sports Medicine Journal, consists of 12 bodyweight exercises, each performed for 30 seconds with a 10 second interval in between, and the only equipment required is a chair and a wall. The TICKR X pairs with the app via Bluetooth and prompts the user for each exercise, timing the effort and counting the reps before moving on to the next.

Data generated from the 7 Minute Workout, such as calories burned, can then be integrated into Apple’s HealthKit on the iPhone. The user simply selects what metrics to include from the 7 Minute Workout and the data contributes to the user’s 24-hour view of calories burned and intensity of the workout itself.

Wahoo Fitness Partners with Ride with GPS

Wahoo Fitness, the leader in workout apps and smartphone connected devices, announced integration of the RFLKT and RFLKT+ Bike Computers with the Ride With GPS App. Cyclists can now access turn-by-turn directions through the app on RFLKT and RFLKT+, getting where they need to be safely and efficiently.

“The addition of the Ride With GPS App to RFLKT and RFLKT+ is a perfect example of how Wahoo Fitness products are constantly evolving to deliver rich experiences to users,” said Chip Hawkins, CEO of Wahoo Fitness.

The Ride with GPS App allows cyclists to map their route along bike paths, streets and trails using an easy online route planner. In order to access turn-by-turn navigation on the RFLKT and RFLKT+ users must purchase a membership from Ride with GPS. Those who already own a RFLKT or RFLKT+ and anyone who purchases a new RFLKT or RFLKT+ will be given a free one-month membership!

RFLKT’s fully customizable screen allows users to decide which app data is most important to see. With 70% screen, the RFLKT has the highest screen to computer ratio in the market while its sleek profile and lowly 2 ounce weight, make it virtually unnoticeable when mounted, while the coin cell operated battery has a life of over one year and requires no charging.

The RFLKT+ has all of the same features as the RFLKT but connects wirelessly via Bluetooth Smart and ANT+ Bridge and allows cyclists to connect to all of their ANT+ sensors, regardless of brand. The RFLKT+ also provides accurate elevation data, percent grade and feet climbed via its built in barometric altimeter.
