Well, damn. My six week old Wahoo Elemnt Bolt cycling computer has failed on me. After having trouble with my old but otherwise very reliable Garmin, I decided to try out something new with the Wahoo device. Six weeks of recording rides without issue then one morning I go to hit start and….
At first I was super happy with the Wahoo Bolt – it’s MUCH easier to set up and use than the Garmin Edge. Being able to change settings and data fields using the mobile app is how it should be done. Garmin take note! Easy to read screen, ability to zoom in and out on data fields, notifications using the row of LEDs across the top, even came with an “aero” shaped out-front mount! All good stuff.
But now that my first unit has died so quickly I don’t know if I will get another one or go back to Garmin. I’ve asked for a full refund under warranty.
Note that I couldn’t find a single other case of this happening with my Google searching so it’s not a common issue. Seems this is rare. In fact almost all reports on the internet are from very happy customers! #FirstWorldProblems
