Wahoo Wahoo RPM Speed Sensor with Bluetooth 4.0 and ANT+
Easy to fit, & use with ANT+ sensor
I bought this as a replacement ANT+ sensor for my Garmin 200 Edge as I somehow managed to lose my fork mounted sensor & magnet in the garage for my winter bike.
I'm glad I lost them now.
This sensor is small, unobtrusive, works really well & I haven't got a sensor strapped to my forks anymore.
Fits nicely around the wheel hub (I fitted to the front wheel to avoid getting oil splash & dirt).
I was worried that it might not connect via the ANT+ / Bluetooth with my Garmin 200 Edge, biut needn't have wooried. Connected first time of asking, a little blu light comes on showing that its active.
I was worried that it my not do what I needed but the Wiggle Chat advisor recommended this sensor as the right one for me. Top Marks to Wiggle. Right advice.
Yes I'd recommend this as an effective ANT+ wireless sensor.

where is it?
I'm using this to bike. Have attached it to my shoe. Extreme easy to use, put on your shoes and off you go. You forget it is there. Other bike? No problem, still on the shoe and keeps on working.
Data is sent to a Garmin 1000 and Suunto ambit at the same time.
I've compared it with a garmin sensor as well. In my view, the garmin seems to give a more stable number each time, the variation of the Wahoo seems to be bigger. Don't know which one is correct butt I do have the feeling that Wahoo seems to miss so now and than a stroke, hence the reason of fluctuating more.
Otherwise, very easy to pair and nothing to do when you start a ride, besides putting on your shoes.

Accurate and convenient...
Purchased primarily to track spin bike workouts on Cyclemeter. The shoe mounting clip allows the device to easily be used on different bikes. Matches cadence readings from spin bike's console, so appears to be accurate. Thanks for a great product!

I bought for my MTB, I like that it's inside the spokes on the hub and can't be knocked off a chain stay like the traditional magnet mounts, plus there's no magnet to fiddle with. I hope replacement bands will be available as inevitably the rubber straps will wear out, I'd rather replace mine once they look rough as opposed to finding out when the sensor drops off during a ride.

Good design but has its flaws
I got this setup with my Ciclo bike computer using Ant+, it works fine but there's is at least like a 5 second delay to the reading. I then also paired it with my iPhone using Bluetooth and it has the same delay. I hope a software update will fix that in the future. Otherwise, it works.

I loved the no magnet installation, perfect on awkward plus sized spacing and lefty mtbs, Bluetooth pairing went easy. Only fault is that after pauses in the ride, (regroup, or nature breaks) often get a large speed spike upon startup of riding, once recording 120km/h, which can skew the distance accuracy.

Easy to use!
Great device but would like to see expanded compatibility; DigiFit in particular.

Better than using GPS
I got real time MPH. This is better than using GPS over the air. One small problem.. It really don't fit well on oversize hub. My front hub is Mavic CF oversize so I just put on rear hub which is smaller and fit better.

Probably causing my Elemnt to go haywire
When using this with my Elemnt, it reads speeds of up to 161 mph. I never saw this issue using my previous speed sensor. Also, it often drops out completely and the display just reads N/A.

The best sensor yet
Everything running great but few issue about not real time enough, few sec delay .

Very easy to install on the bicycle. Very east to connect to phone app. Works well and seems accurate in comparing it to my bike computer as I am using the bike on rollers. Will buy a second one for my mountain bike for outdoor use.

Dosn't fit to dynamo hubs
The sensor only comes with one rubber mountingband which is too short to fit it on any dynamo hubs (e.g. Shimano, SON, Supernova). This is very disapointing and should be pointed out in the product description. A second (longer) rubber mountingband shout be included. Any idea where i can order a suitable mountingband? Dos Whaoo offer it as a spare part?

I am having trouble keeping the RPM speed sensor connected to my Edge520. The sensor has been replaced and all the troubleshooting Garmin could think of has been done. Any ideas?

Wahoo Speed + Sufferfest app = awesome
I bought this to replace a power meter from another company that never really worked. With the Speed sensor the Sufferfest App can calculate my power from my speed. I know TrainerRoad app can do the same thing. I also use the Wahoo RPM for cadence and the Tickr X for HR. If you want to train with power, this set-up works great.

Good as stand alone
After great results with my RPM Cadence was exited when the RPM Speed came out. It like its sister unit is easy to install, efficient, and clean as an add-on. With the Wahoo app it works flawlessly. It is accurate and reliable. And here is the "but", My 3 Wahoo peripherals were purchased to integrate with my Abvio Cyclemeter/Walkmeter app on my IOS device that doubles as a cycle computer. In my case i'm 2 for 3. The RPM Speed does pair and shows up in the "Devices" list. The issue is that it the data from the RPM Speed is not passed/received by the app. It seems that the IOS app prioritizes the GPS data. This data stream is not as snappy or accurate as the data from the RPM Speed. Imagine that both Wahoo and Abvio will sort this our in future but as of now it is nonfunctional.
So with the Wahoo app it is a 5 Star. For me a bit less.

Well packaged, Easy to install. Seems to sync well.

Much better than GPS speed
I've only used it twice, but it is much better than using gps for the speed. There's no lag as there is with gps. Superior also to the speed cadence sensor since you don't have the issue of aligning a spoke magnet with the sensor.
My only quibble is that I ride a recumbent with 20" wheels and the mounting system doesn't fit on the hub. I had to remove the mounting hardware and duct tape the device onto the hub. Not very elegant, but it works.

First of all I am a huge fan of all Wahoo products, so when I saw they released this I wanted to jump on it.
It's super simple to pair with any ANT+ device and just works. I actually have mine mounted to my rear wheel on my mountain bike and it reaches my head unit just fine at the stem.
The minimalist design is awesome and doesn't stick out at all. And blends in very well.
The casing seems sturdy and the straps are tough enough to keep it in place.
Well worth the money.

Good so far
Using this with my trike so still adjusting it for accuracy with my 20"-wheels . This is the first product that allows me to use something besides GPS on the trike. Nice companion to the stand alone cadence sensor. So far working well.
06 April 2016
nice addition to the product line
needed a ant/ble speed sensor, fits the bill well and seems to work well, the only nit is the size of the rubber attaching part of the sensor, too large on some hubs and very tight on others

Did not work on first ride
So, I got this setup with Wahoo fitness app on my iphone6, and went for a ride yesterday. The app pulled the speed information just fine. But it didn't seem to get any distance.
I think this might be an early adopter issue, and the fix should be relatively easy - will need to contact support, and see what they say.
I also had another phone in my jersey pocket, on which I had the app use gps to compare how closely the two tracked w.r.to speed and distance. Will have to wait to get that comparison.
The reason I want this is two fold, (1) To use with my bike on my trainer (not a wahoo trainer, nor a smart trainer) - this is assuming I can get it installed on the back hub - I currently have it on the front hub - which is what wahoo seems to recommend.
(2) If I can get the route from GPS, but the speed and distance from this, I can set the GPS to only poll for data once say every 10 seconds or so, and prolong phone battery life hopefully. That way, you have the route from the GPS, but finer grain speed data. (My hope was to use this with the RFLKT+ to also get the altitude info with gps polling turned to infrequent, but I haven't gotten the RFLKT+ to work yet.)
