Wahoo Fitness has come up with yet another device for fitness buffs, which is the RPM Cadence Sensor. This is a lightweight and hassle free manner of tracking cycling cadence. It sports a convenient magnet-less installation and feather light weight of just seven grams, allowing the RPM to be attached to any bicycle in a jiffy as it shows off cadence data through the use of popular cycling apps. If you want to pick up the RPM, it will be available for $49.99 a pop, or you can opt for it to be bundled with the RFLKT Smart Bike Computer for $149.99.
Just how will the RPM Cadence Sensor work? For starters, it will be able to hook up wirelessly to the user’s iOS device thanks to Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, where it will then be able to send cadence data to top cycling apps such as Wahoo Fitness (but of course), Strava and MayMyRide. Being different from the majority of speed and cadence sensors, RPM happens to be magnet-less, which translates to an easy setting up experience. LED lights will flash whenever it is connected to depict the fact that a wireless connection has been established, making sure that you know right from the very beginning that data is being actively logged. Apart from that, there is also no need to juice up the sensor at all, as it will be able to run on a single coin cell battery for up to two years so that the sensor can remain on the user’s bike between rides.
Among the features that can be found in the Wahoo Fitness RPM Cadence Sensor would include the ability to pair itself up with the Wahoo Fitness app in addition to other popular cycling apps, and being compatible with the iPhone 4s, 5, 5s, 5c, iPod touch (5th generation), and iPad (3rd and 4th generation). This should be a “must have” purchase for any cycling enthusiast who wants to up his or her game.
