Wahoo’s RFLKT+ is an interesting and unusual product designed to mirror what is on your smartphone as well as converting your ANT+ sensor data to enable many Bluetooth devices (smartphones, Suunto, Polar) to also receive that ANT+ data.
Positives: Allows you to keep your iOS or android phone in your back pocket whilst cycling. The RFLKT+ also converts ANT+ sensors to BTLE/Bluetooth. This can save significant amounts of battery power on you smartphone and may also enable you to use, for example, Strava with your ANT+ sensors. More compact handlebar display than a smartphone. May enable your technology to last the duration of longer rides. May help reduce risk of damage or theft of your phone. Also provides a barometric altimeter, temperature and grade data.
Negatives: The ANT+ to Bluetooth bridge part of the functionality only works on iOS. When there are multiple conflicting sensors of the same type I have sometimes had difficulty displaying any data from those sensors. At ttimes the initial data was very slow in loading up to the RFLKT+ device when first turned on. Compatibility with Bluetooth devices such as Polar and Suunto was not tested by me but should work.
Comments: Wahoo Fitness are one of the better companies in the market. Their products are generally excellent and sometimes quite innovative. They have a great app and are generally priced not too badly. They’re one of the good guys! A lower RFLKT version is available without the bridging.
Verdict: Very handy for a select group of users and quite precise needs.
Detailed Review: (Here) is a detailed review.
Declaration: I received a free unit for this review. I don’t use iOS at all for my personal benefit and so I don’t use this for my training. This device helps me to write other reviews for you guys.
