Jan 8, 2015 – To be good at ’cross requires cross-training and that’s where the Wahoo Tickr X comes in. Way more than just a heart-rate monitor, the Tickr X can record heart rate, elapsed time and calories burned for later Bluetooth or ANT+ upload if you’re running or riding without your Garmin or phone.


It has built-in motion sensors that count your reps if you are doing core work, can monitor your cadence on the trainer, and when you go for those dreaded run workouts a “Running Smoothness” feature can let tell you if you are being too Froome and not enough Prefontaine.

It talks to a host of new apps as well as the iWatch.
