Since the launch of the ELEMNT bike computer in 2016, Wahoo has gone head-to-head with Garmin to win its own market for cyclists’ handlebars. Sure, Garmin had an advantage over its wrist-based devices, but Wahoo‘s impressive line of indoor fitness trainers made it the sought-after brand in the cycling community.
With the announcement of the RIVAL smartwatch, Wahoo aims to challenge Garmin in a field where it is strong: GPS watches. It uses the same easy-to-use platform as the rest of the ELEMNT devices in RIVAL to monitor and record various activity metrics to provide a seamless user experience. However, RIVAL’s difference lies in the multi-sport mode. Proprietary Touchless Transition technology; It means it will automatically switch from swimming to riding, running to cycling with one swipe. Moreover, RIVAL includes a Multisport Transfer mode that works in parallel with ELEMNT bike computers, ensuring data is always available. With features such as a ceramic bezel, ambient light sensor, barometric altimeter, and 14-day battery life, RIVAL is an attractive choice. Click for detailed information.
