手腕上的瓦霍·艾伦特竞争对手

点评:华虎首款GPS智能手表,全能元素的竞争对手

在你的指尖得到更多的数据-不用你的指尖。

心率监测器、健身跟踪器和运动手表;Wahoo Fitness has dominated in only two of these three categories — until now. Today, Wahoo joins the ranks of its competitors in developing the trifecta of performance sport wearables.

The元素竞争对手watch($380) markets itself as a versatile, sleek, feature-rich GPS smartwatch with all the options you could want. It measures heart rate, steps, distance, and calories burned 24/7 — plus mileage, speed, average and max pace, and a slew of other metrics depending on your activity.

哦,它会自动将你的训练同步到你的connected Wahoo app, komoot, Strava, Nike Run apps, and more.

“The real magic of RIVAL is that we were able to take everything we have done with the ELEMNT bike computer and create a perfect parallel, giving triathletes and runners the same ease of use,” Wahoo founder Chip Hawkins said.

Wahoo ELEMNT Smartwatch Review

It’s November in Colorado (and it snowed last week), so I wasn’t able to test the swimming functions. I did, however, splash and submerge the watch on a few occasions and found no complaints with its level of waterproofing. Despite the temps, I did test the other six — not three, not four, but-运动模式元素竞争对手提供。

The first week I had the watch, I wanted to familiarize myself with its settings and the accompanying app (which was still in beta testing) before I dove into a major running or summiting endeavor. That first week, I completed six workouts: five running (with one treadmill session and the rest outdoors) and one strength training and yoga session.

我还穿着它去杂货店,上下班去办公室,在公园锻炼,遛狗。(有趣的事实:与狗、小孩、婴儿车和一杯咖啡一起慢跑,相当于17分钟一英里。)

Wahoo竞争对手测试

在我测试手表的第二周,我确保突破了运动模式的限制。我跑进了山里,骑着自行车穿过了小镇,我甚至完成了一个短跑铁人三项——我的版本是SUP bike run(同样,现在是11月和雨夹雪)。

However, this is the part where I say I’m not a professional athlete. I’m not in training for a race (or participating in one anytime soon thanks to COVID). The workouts I chose weren’t about hitting a PR but more simply about figuring out the breadth of performance data the ELEMNT RIVAL smartwatch can provide.

What’s more, I’m a little old-school. I still listen to cassette tapes, carry cash, and prefer books to their e-reader counterparts. All this is to say I’m not a diehard smartwatch user. I have tested a few smartwatches but never felt compelled to own one. That’s all to say, I don’t carry much bias in brand or features.

The one-page “quick start guide” provided with the app was all the instruction I needed. The ambient light sensor (which changes screen brightness) worked great and made it easy to view my data. Good screen visibility is huge when you’re running at night, in full sun, or with fogged-up glasses.

更好的是,Wahoo Fitness增加了一个“完美缩放”功能,这样你就可以选择想要在屏幕上看到的数据。这些选项的范围从大字体、经过的时间或里程数显示,一直到显示活动时间、里程数、心率、节奏、圈速等的六向拆分屏幕。

模拟和数字手表显示,步进计数器,以及我尝试过的单一运动模式都工作得很好。

虽然我不能让多端口模式记录我的游泳部分(因为我划船),开放水域游泳模式成功地跟踪我的SUP时间和距离(以码为单位),没有问题。

Wahoo铁人三项模式的一大关键功能是它的无接触过渡——它自动为你切换训练,计算过渡时间,并知道你何时开始下一回合。

所有这些都显示在手表上。如果需要的话,你可以手动停止或编辑你的转换——尽管我没有,因为我发现转换非常准确。

我在1:40完成了我的冲刺三项(半英里冲刺、12英里自行车、5公里跑)。当然,如果我想要一个完成时间,我可以运行一个计时器。我还记录了我的腿部和过渡时间、GPS路线和每分钟的心率。

So now I have a baseline goal if I choose to make a second attempt. (I’ll be picking a day and location that hopefully doesn’t involve a 20mph headwind.) And who knows, maybe SUP tris will catch on.

Wahoo ELEMNT RIVAL vs. Garmin, Suunto

说到GPS智能手表等可穿戴设备,至少有两个大品牌会想到:GarminSuunto. 那么,竞争对手如何比较呢?这绝不是一个正面的比较,而是对市场上类似手表的快速了解。

与其他品牌一样,华虎手表具有心率传感器、防水性、铁人三项模式以及与健身应用程序的兼容性等功能。

ELEMNT的竞争对手有一个240×240屏幕(与类似的Garmin型号相同,比Suunto 9的320×300屏幕稍小)。电池寿命(根据每个品牌)是相同的:手表14天,GPS电池寿命24小时。它的耐水性评级,低至50米,也与市场上其他手表不相上下。

ELEMNT的竞争对手有一点不同的地方是它的额外的屏幕功能,比如铁人三项模式下的触摸转换、完美的变焦以及与其他Wahoo产品的兼容性。(目前市面上没有其他手表可以连接到瓦霍的踢腿培训师。)

但这是真实的kicker: The Wahoo Fitness RIVAL watch has a low and competitive price of $380. (The Suunto 9 and Garmin Forerunner 745 are both $500.)

结论

一开始我最大的问题是,“这只表的性能如何?具体地说,这些功能是否设计良好,是否会产生影响?“对我来说,答案是令人惊讶和响亮的是。

我并不是突然过度专注于劈叉之间的几秒钟,也不是专注于卡路里的计算。但我发现我自己确实在想我一天中有多活跃(或不活跃),以及如何利用锻炼历史来提高自己的表现。

总的来说,我对Wahoo的ELEMNT RIVAL手表印象深刻。特别是,我很欣赏它的简单设置和无缝切换能力。我不会坚持特定的SUP模式,但我也不会反对如果Wahoo继续发展它的手表技术。想想爬山、划船、冒险赛、skimo赛车-可能性是无穷的。

在那之前,我很高兴有机会进一步测试ELEMNT的竞争对手:游泳、自行车、跑步。
