Wahoo Fitness Introduces ELEMNT MINI
Friday 18th August 2017
Garmin has been the front runner in the fitness data/tech industry. We still are using our Edge 800 and it's been with us for a good few years now. But there's always a new kid on the block determined to take away the crown from tech royalty, Wahoo has released a mini version of it's popular ELEMNT range, are you a defector?!
Joining the flagship ELEMNT, and the aerodynamic ELEMNT BOLT GPS cycling computers, the all-new ELEMNT MINI is a standalone wireless bike computer that provides a compelling economical product for cyclists. When used with the ELEMNT Companion App, the ELEMNT MINI is able to capture a full suite of ride data like cadence, heart rate, call/text notifications, while also enabling friends or family members to follow ride progress with Wahoo’s newly enhanced Live Track capability.
In addition to the rich functionality, the ELEMNT MINI carries Wahoo’s signature user-friendliness and cutting-edge innovation due to seamless integration with the ELEMNT Companion App. Originally introduced in 2016, this game-changing companion app streamlines how consumers interact with their bike computer, dramatically simplifying setup, customisation and connectivity.
Sticking close to its namesake, the ELEMNT MINI is equipped with a streamlined, two-button interface and a 1.8” diagonal LCD screen, yielding a smaller size that tips the scales at a feathery light 31.2 grams. It is powered by Bluetooth and ANT+ technologies, making it compatible with all Wahoo sensors including the RPM Speed Sensor (included with the ELEMNT MINI), the RPM Cadence Sensor and the TICKR Heart Rate Monitor (sold separately) for cyclists looking to specifically tailor their data tracking needs.
At the heart of the wallet-friendly and feature-rich ELEMNT MINI, is Wahoo’s improved Live Track feature, which enables others to monitor the user’s current and travelled locations in real-time on a map, along with any data (speed, heart rate, cadence) being transmitted to their cycling computer.
“The new MINI is a key piece in the Wahoo ELEMNT bike computer portfolio,” said Jose Mendez, Director of Product Management for Cycling Products at Wahoo Fitness. “Thanks to the Wahoo ELEMNT Companion App we are bringing the powerful, yet simple Wahoo Fitness experience, to a whole new category of economy-minded cyclists while delivering much of the same data that our professional athletes demand.”
The Wahoo ELEMNT MINI is now available to buy at select specialty retailers and on WahooFitness.com for £79.99.
