Ratings and Reviews
Great device terrible customer service
The wahoo element device is a wonderful precise companion to riding. I have enjoyed using it outdoors as well as indoors it pairs with the wahoo heart rate monitor, cadence and speed sensors without incident. I would highly recommend the device.
As far as a company and the customer service, this is the worst I’ve ever experienced. Wahoo uses fake refunds to entice people to purchase their device at full retail price. They promised a refund which entices the purchase but never deliver the refund. Wahoo company uses manipulative restrictive conditions to reject any attempt at receiving the rebate that is promised.
When speaking with customer service representatives they are insensitive to any attempts to make good the wrong of rejecting the rebate. Even threats of buying a competitor’s product only receive “go ahead they’re more expensive” as a reply. When trying to appeal to their reasonableness the responses “whatever do what you think you need to do.”
Great computer but…
The new Element Bolt 2.0 is a great computer. Simple to use and has great page views. I love that is displays color on your watt output to show your effort level. Paired with heart rate and cadence…really does give you a great view of your workout live. With all the great things I can say about the computer…just two issues. Takes a long time to acquire GPS and the barometric sensor in mine is faulty. Otherwise would get a 5 star.
The 2.0 does have some sort of SW bug with the barometric sensor. I have spent much time back and forth with Wahoo support to get it rectified, but to no avail. Last communication was “It is a known issue and as soon as our support team has a fix we will contact you”. That has been 2 months waiting. Not happy about this since it has had the issue right out of the box. Temperature is about 9 degrees too high. I did a side by side compare with my Bolt original to verify that the sensor is either faulty or has a bad offset in the software. Either way…Wahoo should make good on it. Will change my rating and update post if they do come through. Otherwise, I do love the computers…both the Bolt original and the 2.0.
Ios 13.5.1 background processing killing battery
I love the app but something is not right under IoS 13.5.1. Although to be fair, the new Elemnt release was installed at about the same time the ios update came out but it did seem like the problem began with the ios update.
Since installing ios update my battery won’t charge properly and constantly discharges very fast. I checked all the forums and this ios version does have a battery optimizing feature that is contributing to similar problems. But I notice in the Battery control panel that Elemnt is taking up 70% of battery even overnight when I’m sleeping! My phone has been running hot since the ios update too. Ive turned off notifications, blue tooth and background app refresh in Elemnt and guess what - my phone is charging and discharging normally again. And is running cool again.
