ELEMNT BOLT GPS Bike Computer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 219.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and configure I had it for a while now and read most tests about it before purchase and it works as expected. One minor thing that could improve is the font size at bottom of display that describe what the hardware keys does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend the Element Bolt Im so pleased I purchased this I used a Garmin before but this has so many more features and functions the screen is great its so clear I use it for strava live segments too and Im alerted when a segment is approaching the lights are fantastic too I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect GPS cycling computer I purchased this several months ago and have nothing bad to say. This unit is the perfect size for both racing and day-long centuries.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Bike Computer, Poor for GPS Navigation If you are looking for a bike computer that links with all of your sensors and communicates well with Strava, Ride with GPS, etc this is an excellent bike computer. If you are less interested in increasing your competitive performance and were looking for good GPS navigation integrated with a good bike computer, then the Bolt may let you down. When navigating with the Bolt I have several issues. When following a route on the Bolt if you get off course then your route becomes useless. There is no automatic reroute, no street names, and not even an arrow pointing you in the direction you need to head to get back on course which is something I have had on every GPS since they were first offered to the public over 20 years ago. Also, unless you have perfect or 20/20 corrected vision the map page is pretty much useless. Routes for the most part are created on your phone or computer and transferred to the Bolt. I have used Ride with GPS but wish I might also use Google Maps and link to my phone so I could have real-time reroute info transmitted to the Bolt. As I am a senior citizen I appreciate the bike computer info on the Bolt but I am not a competitive athlete looking for peak performance so the I am unable to review the usefulness of the Bolt in that regard and will leave that to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect purchase I'm using bolt computer almost 2 months and I' m very satisfied with this purchase. Screen is very readable and thanks to customizable views I can focus on the data I'm most interested in. I'm amazed of long battery life, which I think is the best from bike computers available on the market. One of my favourite features is Strava integration, however I could be a little better with support for most popular segments in the area - not only those that you starred. The only bug I caught concerns email notification which does not work well, but to be honest it might be a problem of my iphone so I don't blame wahoo :) Summarizing, I really recommend this product to any bike enthusiast. It will definetly make your rides and workouts betters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant I am so happy to have switched from a Garmin to this. Had so many issues with the Garmin (just unreliable, even my replacement unit after my first one stopped turning on lasted only a few months). All I can say is it's just designed for ease of use and is pretty brilliant.
Date published: 2017-10-27
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Inaccurate AVG Watts It has a known problem with displaying AVG Watts in the field and transmitted to TP software. It will show avg watts in Strava or WKO4 correctly but is over 30% low on screen and transmitted to TP. Have sent files and talked to Wahoo several times - have been told that it would be addressed, it hasn't. The last contact was that they didn't set the developers priority. I really like the ease of the Bolt vs. Garmin but for a company that started as an indoor trainer and moved over to providing computers, it would seem that training work would be critical, especially as the season turns to those specific intervals. The NP is calculated correctly so steady state it can be used as a work around.
Date published: 2017-10-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy set up It takes a while to get everything customized but by far the easiest computer to use (had a garmin 800). The screen is easy to read, the contrast is much better but the lights indicating above below zones are really hard to see in daylight...a beep to indicate over/under would be awesome. All in all I would recommend and would buy again.
