We first heard about Wahoo Fitness’s RFLKT+ computer during the company’s Kickstarter campaign back in August. According to Wahoo, the new computer has met production, and it’s now available for retail sales.
While the original Wahoo RFKLT computer essentially had to "boot strap" itself to the iPhone, requiring the addition of Bluetooth speed and cadence sensors, the new device rids the user of that – through the use of ANT+ technology.
The “plus” version now acts as a wireless bridge between transmission formats, converting ANT+ sensor data into Bluetooth, and beaming it to your iPhone . In turn the rider can tap into his or her choice of apps, and have it transmit back out to the RFLKT+’s screen. The new device even has a built in a barometric altimeter.
Additionally, Wahoo has expanded the RFLKT+’s capabilities, to include the ability to stream data from popular apps like Strava, MapMyFitness, Cyclemeter and more. Retail cost of the new device is $149.
RFLKT+ IPHONE POWERED BIKE COMPUTER
Meet the newest member of our bike computer family! The NEW Wahoo RFLKT+ is a sleek iPhone powered bike computer just like the RFLKT, but with the added features of an ANT+ bridge, altimeter, and thermometer. The RFLKT+ uses Bluetooth 4.0 technology to connect to your iPhone and mirror your workout data from your favorite fitness App. Harness all of the power of your iPhone from your handlebars, while your phone is safely tucked in your jersey pocket. The RFLKT + uses a precision on board altimeter and thermometer to track your elevation far better than any GPS. You can use the built in ANT+ bridge to connect your ANT + power meter, speed/cadence sensor, or heart rate monitor straight to your iPhone.
