While my current phone has ANT+ I do have other devices with only Bluetooth so it's a big plus Wahoo supports both with their TICKR straps. And I also like the idea of sometimes wearing the strap without needing either a fitness band/watch or my phone on my body and it can still track my workout. So the TICKR X seemed worth the extra few bucks to have it work "offline."
The Wahoo app works flawlessly if you have your phone (or I presume a compatible iPod) on you. You go for a run, ride, or walk and, when you finish, your route is already mapped, all the stats summarized, and it gets archived away for future reference. Likewise, the heart rate data is stored by the Garmin Vivofit and Garmin's Connect app (or website) can show you a graph of your heart rate for any workout or event. Your current heartrate and zone, of course, also displays nicely on your wrist during the activity by any wrist device that supports ANT+ heart monitors.
It's also very accurate and agrees with a Polar and Timex I checked it against. I never have had an issue with it not reading even when the pads are fairly dry. And I've never had any RF communication issues either. It just works. The strap, rather than having a buckle to fasten simply snaps to the plastic bit. It's very easy. They sell replacements traps.
The LEDs are also really useful. And you can double tap the device through your shirt to place "markers" in your workout (or even change the track on your phone/iPod music player).
I took a star off because the data is more limited if the activity is monitored "offline." I had hoped, for example, the TICKR X would still give you a graph of your heart rate over the duration of the activity but it only gives you the min, max, and average. I'm not sure if it doesn't have a enough memory to store the heart rate value every few seconds, but that was a bit disappointing. The solution is to either have your phone/iPod on your person or a compatible smart band or watch that can log your heart rate.
I also am disappointed they have only one real Android app (and a "utility app) but many iOS apps. That's hard to understand, and forgive, when Android now has a much bigger market share than iOS. So all but one of those cool apps you see on the Wahoo website currently only work with iOS.
The TICKR X is nicely packaged and very simple to set up. The band is comfortable and the lights are reassuring. The lights are visible through a shirt but they stop flashing after 30 seconds or so to conserve battery.
The memory feature, which was my primary reason for purchasing, seems to be gimmicky. First, using it in "offline" mode (or is it called "Device Free" mode? ... docs and apps use both terms) means you forego any of the motion tracking of the TICKR X. Secondly, having the TICKR X record all data while it's worn means that there is effectively no "on/off" switch. With other HRMs you need to pair it with something to record data, meaning the time you want to record is delineated by when you started and stopped the app you were recording with. TICKR X is just recording all the time so you have to be careful when you put it on or go back and trim it later. The Wahoo Fitness app seems to assume that if you started it up to record a workout that you wouldn't be interested in anything before or after that. So if you do any warmup before or cooldown after the exercise you want to track with the Fitness app you lose that data.
I find the Wahoo apps confusing as well. Fitness and RunFit both have a lot of feature overlap. I've not figured out when/why to use one over the other. Documentation is lacking.
I also have trouble getting the double-tap to register. I've read other reviewers state that their's seems too sensitive. Mine seems to be the opposite. I can get it to trigger about 30% of the time.
Hopefully much of the above can be addressed with software updates
So, why would someone buy the Tickr X? I have no idea, as I could never recommend it. The whole benefit of the product is being able to store workout data and sync later so you don't have to bring a phone, but the product doesn't do that. The offline mode provides such basic data that it's essentially worthless.
Bottom line: I bought the Tickr X because I was intrigued by the running analytics, but it doesn't provide that data without a phone, so it's a waste of money.
