Wahoo RPM Speed Sensor is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked with my Polar V650 I bought the combo speed and cadence package for use with my Polar V650. I bought it since the Wahoo SC would always get kicked out of position. Instructions for installing the cadence sensor came in the box, but nothing for the speed sensor. No "speed tool" for opening the sensors to replace batteries was provided either. The speed sensor fit on on of our bikes that was equipped with a small diameter front hub, but the rubber strap is too short for our bikes with dyno hubs. It won't fit those bikes on the rear hub either, as they have IGH hubs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid speed sensor Two things I like: Bluetooth Interface and clean mounting on the wheel hub. BT interface seems to read as well as ANT+. Look at cyclebikeapp dot com FAQs page for comparison. I've had other speed sensors bend wheel spokes and snap off. Could wish for better economy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Always on pause Can't get it to work with Samsung s health it does nothing .won't fit on my bikes rear hub so if it worked at all i couldn't us it on my stationary stand only on road as it fits on front wheel hub only connects to Wahoo app but pauses no matter how fast or far you peddle you have to stop get out your phone push start put down phone take off and it pauses within a few feet again useless and frustrating to work with for such a simple device you shouldent have to spend time with support he'll back and forth it should just work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful! Frustrating!Expensive to run Bought this about a month ago to pair with my Elemnt Bolt (which I like a lot). Out of the box the unit would not pair. On investigation I found that the battery that came with the unit was dead. I was angry that this was the case but pressed on and inserted another battery. I linked up to my Elemnt Bolt and Strava and thought the issue was sorted. Four weeks and four brand new Duracell CR2032 batteries later (at a cost of £2.50 stg each) I have reached the end of my tether with this unit. All of the batteries last no more than one or two rides and sometimes no rides at all! Clearly there is an issue with these units as I have now read several other reviews where buyers have found the same issue. Whether it is confined to one batch or not I do not know but mine is by no means an isolated incidence of this fault. As a comparison I have run a Garmin ANT speed sensor for 3 years and 15,0000 miles and replaced the battery only once during that time. I only purchased the RPM Speed for the Bluetooth compatibility. I have been a very enthusiastic advocate of the Elemnt Bolt and have convinced a number of friends to switch from Garmin units. I would definitely not recommend this unit however.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not sure about quality of cadence sensor I already have one on my sports bike at it has worked fine with no problems - straight out of the box. So I bought a second for my cyclocross bike. This one was 'dead' - would not turn on, so contacted support who were great and very fast - advised me to put in a new battery. This I did and the sensor came to life and registered with the wahoo, but half way through the ride next day it died again. A second new battery but still nothing. So I contacted support who speedily send out a new replacement - I thought well OK just unlucky with the first one, but the new one arrived - also dead! So yet another new battery and well this time it has come alive and worked for my first hour long ride with it this afternoon. Whether it still works tomorrow I've no idea. Bad batch or sending out old stock? Maybe the battery should not be pre-installed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Battery life is very very short First of all, the battery which came with the product was dead. I replaced the battery wiht a new one and it lasted only for three sessions. Very dissapointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of Use Great little sensor, connects easily every time. Easy to take on and off to move from one bike to another, no muss no fuss.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Replacing battery ever ride Purchased wahoo speed and out of the box the battery was dead. Replaced the battery took a two hour ride and let sit for three days. Battery was dead next time I rode. Replaced the battery added the sensor and didn't ride but rather just sat it on my table. Three days later the battery was dead.
