Wahoo Fitness's New RFLKT+ Computer Adds ANT+ with iPhone



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.
