Taking the bike accessory market by storm, the latest product from Wahoo Fitness is the RFLKT Bike Computer. Run by the iPhone stowed safely in your jersey pocket, the bike computer puts all your app data, images, music, and workout info at the tip of your fingers.
Basically a data mirror for the app running on your iPhone, the Wahoo RFLKT Bike Computer lets you actually visualize your performance while out on the ride. The handlebar mounted RFLKT wirelessly receives all app data, images, and ride info from your iPhone 4S or iPhone 5 via Bluetooth 4.0. Equipped with control buttons, you can operate the app functions, toggle between screens, start/stop the timer, and even control basic iPhone functionality such as music playback, all from the bike computer.
As the RFLKT is a designated bike computer, you don't have to worry about leaving it on your bike (unless you are worried about it being stolen of course) and don't have to bother with clunky phone mounts on your handlebars. Coin cell operated, the RFLKT Bike Computer requires no recharging with a battery life of 1 year. Weighing just 2 oz. and measuring 2.4” L x 1.6” W x 0.5” H, the RFLKT is lightweight and compact.
The Wahoo Fitness RFLKT Bike Computer will be available in December 2012 at a not yet designated price. Paired together with the Wahoo Blue HR heart rate strap and Blue SC speed and cadence sensor, you have an almost complete Bluetooth based performance data package for training.
The one catch, RFLKT does not yet work with Strava. At launch, the bike computer will be compatible with Cyclemeter in addition to the Wahoo Fitness App, with more scheduled to roll out in the future. Hopefully Strava and even Endomondo are on that list.
