ELEMNT BOLT GPS Bike Computer is rated out of 5 by 64.Rated 4 out of 5 by Eastwestdoc from It Works! Bought the Bolt 2 weeks ago and appreciate the dependable connectivity over the RFLKT+. Route tracking is good and programmable data field selection and set up are great! Haven't managed to track my ride partners through Strava, yet. Also cannot adjust threshold for "auto pause" and loosing tracking on very steep MTB hills.Date published: 2017-05-21Rated 5 out of 5 by Hidenq from Super easy to use and setup This is the easiest computer I've ever set up and used. Everything is set up from the phone app. 5 minutes and away you go. It was very easy to load maps for following a cue sheet. It would be nice to see the computer coupled with some bike sensors.Date published: 2017-05-19Rated 5 out of 5 by Cougar from Really impressed with the size, design and feature I was looking for a computer that could meet my needs today and that I could expand in the future. This unit has it all. Design, size and features.Date published: 2017-05-18Rated 5 out of 5 by Saferider10 from Great little piece of hardware Have been using the Elemnt Bolt for a week and so far it is as good as expected and even better . Battery life is great , interface via the phone or the device is very intuitive and easy to use. At this point I did not find anything wrong with it . I can use it on 4 rides of 3 hours each before recharging it . Visibility in all conditions has been fantastic, and by deleting all the maps I don't need at this stage , I ended up with more than 1GB of free memory( hundreds of rides can be easily stored on this device.)Date published: 2017-05-17Rated 5 out of 5 by tpreece from Favorite New Toy I had been researching a new bike specific Garmin when I tripped upon some stellar reviews for the Bolt. The functionality seemed comparable at a lower price point so decided to give it a try. 1) When it arrived I was rather suprised at the lack of a user manual but the device is so user friendly and intuitive turns out you dont need one (A+ on that front). 2) Using a phone app to configure it is an amazingly better experience and faster. 3) Customizable screens with big fonts is a big win for old guys with bad eyes like me 4) Didnt think I'd use the LED lights function but having your HR zone display regardless of the screen you are on is pretty great. 5) Having ALL my strava routes automatically download immediately was a big wow factor (was a pain on my Garmin). Wahoo has nailed usability. I considered myself a Garmin for life guy but the Bolt really changed that.Date published: 2017-05-16Rated 5 out of 5 by JAWF from Everything I need I've had my bolt for about a month now and I have to say that I am really pleased with the quality, finish and function of the Bolt. It was easy to set it up, pair it with my DuoTrap and mount it on my handlebar. It fits perfectly within my aero bar setup. I really appreciate the ease of using the phone app (android in my case) in placing and arranging the data fields that are important to me on the various pages of the Bolt. I have all my essential data one one page and I love that I can zoom in to get a better look at my more important data. Nice feature. I like that I can easily import routes and segments from Strava and Ride with GPS (and others). Simply click over to the route page on the Bolt and scroll down until you find the route you want and select it. You can manage which routes you have either with the app or on Strava or Ride with GPS. When you come to a Strava Live segment that you have starred in Strava, there is a beep and a large GO! that is displayed along with your PR and the KOM so you can challenge yourself. Another item that I really appreciate is theat my ride will automatically upload onto Strave and RWGPS as soon as the Bolt is within range of my WIFI at home. No need for something like Garmin Connect. The buttons are very tactile and even east to use wearing full finger gloves. Thats important during those cooler months. The Turn By Turn Navi that Bolt has is nice as well. I have tested it once and can see where it will be useful in areas that I am not familiar with. That goes for the "Take Me Anywhere"(TMA) feature too. That brings me to the one point that was a source of confusion for me. The support docs and vids indicate that I should go to my Ride page and and select "no route selected". Must be an IPhone thing. No such selection on the Android. Finally figured out to go to the Routes section of the phone and then hit the + sign in the lower right corner of the page and that brings up a "menu" that lists "search for location", "create from history", "sync from web","import file" and "retrace back to start". Selecting the "search for location" will enable you to find the place you want to go, like a bike shop or coffee shop for example, and it will create a route to get you there.Date published: 2017-05-16Rated 4 out of 5 by jk48154 from Easy Setup and config! Super readable display! I love this product. Wahoo has the best configuration in the business. Super easy to load routes. Easy uploads to Strava. My only complaint is that when I press the buttons on the bottom side of the display I see artifacts from the pressure on the screen. Hopefully not a long term reliability concern.Date published: 2017-05-15Rated 4 out of 5 by ArtieFufkin from Glad I bought it!! Didn't want to buy biggest brand as buggy and crash constantly. The Elemnt Bolt works great, is intuitive, and seemlessly connects to Strava. Setup and use is simple and it collects all the data I need. Only feedback is HR Zones are in whole numbers so I've asked Wahoo for software update to give in decimals.Date published: 2017-05-15
