Wahoo Fitness app review: for runners and cyclists

Reviews

Introduction

Wahoo Fitness - Bluetooth Powered Cycling and Running Workout Tracker is a fitness tracker app for iPhone and iPad that is based on a very solid concept but unfortunately seems to disappoint in a number of ways.

I really like the idea behind this app but it really seems to be unreliable in the way it communicates with pedometers and health marker trackers, plus the overall temperamental nature of the interface makes it a loser in my books.

Unreliable Functionality

It really is unfortunate that this fitness tracking app is as buggy as it is because the interface looks great and the features that are on offer would certainly have made for an invaluable tool for all you fitness fanatics out there.

The thing is, with so many comparable developments available in the Health & Fitness and Medical categories of the App Store it makes little sense to opt for one that has received such negative feedback from users.

Highly Temperamental

You’re supposed to be able to use Wahoo Fitness - Bluetooth Powered Cycling and Running Workout Tracker to monitor various health markers as track your routes when running or cycling but the GPS integration and communication between devices seems highly unreliable.

All in all, I think it would be a far better idea to look for one of the more highly esteemed apps in the genre of running and cycling apps or fitness tracker apps in general.

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • This app is designed to provide extensive integration with fitness monitoring devices and online fitness communities, enabling you to track your workouts in a variety of activity types
     

Cons

 

  • There seem to be so many issues surrounding the stability of the app as a whole as well as its reliability when it comes to working with devices so I think for now it would be best to opt for a different similar app until the necessary improvements and fixes are made
  • Further to my above remarks, I would emphasize that this is a very well-conceived app but its execution is unfortunately lacking overall, so you would be better served by another app in the Health & Fitness category of the App Store

Final Words

Wahoo Fitness - Bluetooth Powered Cycling and Running Workout Tracker for iPhone and iPad has clearly had some effort put into it but it simply does not deliver, but hopefully the developer will pay attention to the feedback and improve upon the faults in a future update.
