I LOVED this HR monitor for the first 8 months and ever since it has been nothing but a pain. I keep attempting to use it because I spent the money on it but it rarely works now. It will show a signal on my phone in the app but won't give any of the values (ie HR), will shut off after a few minutes, and won't record device free workouts anymore to name a few problems. I have attempted replacing the batteries twice and resetting the device and still nothing. Not sure if I'm doing something wrong or if it is the device but this broke university student certainly wasted her money. :(
My workouts on a treadmill have become increasingly difficult as I age so I decided to get TICKR X to try to determine what was going on. I chose TICKR X because of its ability to give more input than just heart rate such as cadence and smoothness. Also an indoor spin bike may become part of my workout routine. What I found out was that my workouts were exceedingly tough. I was running in the "burst" mode 95% of the time and within 5 beats or so of my maximum heart rate for my age. So just to get this information was very useful. Now I don't think I am your average almost 73 year old. I have a resting heart rate around 43 or 44 and have no problem running 4 miles in 36 or 37 minutes. Just 3 or 4 years ago I could run 4 miles in 32 minutes but it was quite an effort! Another thing I noticed was that apparently as I increase and decrease my running speed cadence remains relatively unchanged and apparently I mainly adjust my stride as TICKR X can't discern this.
The TICKR X does measure data like hearth rate accurately and has got a few good apps like Runfit and Wahoofitness. While wrist watches are very popular for hearth rate measurement, they do not deliver the quality for each individual because of the measurement on the wrist with LED's. As a runner i would love to see the following to make it even much better: SOFTWARE - let the runfit app measure all of the sophisticated data like GCT, Vertical oscillation, Running Smoothness on GPS watches like apple watch series 2 or other wearables - make the runfit app a little bit more artificially intelligent en give me feedback like recovery state or advise me not to run, or predict my hearth rate, etc. - Make de data available in beautiful charts like Nike+ does but with the sophisticated data HARDWARE: - The TICKR X does start recording automatically when no phone is carried. Make it a triple tik for example to start and end a workout. - Built a newer TICKR X device that measures temperature, or other bio-sensor information and integrate this in de data charts visually like a human with a blue color for cool or red color for overheating during every measurement interval.
The HR tracker is top notch, best is it can be used without a phone. The app provide minimal insight/analytics. I don't like that the app can synced with only one phone and that info isn't shared with tablet or laptop. To see data over multiple devices, must upload to a 3rd part app
Twice slower to connect to any previously used fitness app, compared to old Sigma H heart belt. Even to native Wahoo apps, all on the same S7 Edge. Also unfastense too easily, sometimes inadvertently. IMHO too much hype about it, marketing is better than product.
My Polar Heart Rate Monitor would not connect with my indoor trainer via ANT or Bluetooth. I saw some good reviews on this TICKR tracker and purchased it. I have my bicycle in a CycleOps Hammer trainer and use both Virtual Trainer and Zwift software. The monitor connected effortlessly to both and I can view my heart rate on the screen as I exercise. Each day when I start up, I put the strap on, open Zwift, and start riding. It could not be easier.
This is my second one, my first one bought when TICKE X was first introduced.. My dog chewed up my first one. It was more than I expected. I was suprized that the new one records pace during walking and cadence during spinning on a spinning bike. (I verified the precision with the bikes cadence sensor.)
Bluetooth, easy to setup but then at some point connection got compromised and it's impossible to get a Bluetooth connection with the device even though have no problem connecting to other Bluetooth devices in a house, the only solution to reboot the phone. App seems to be having problems
Works fine. Easily connected to my iphone (Bluetooth) and BKool (ANT+ via Wahoo dongle to PC). The only problem is the connector to the belt: unlike my previous Geonaute the monitor itself makes the closing and the press-studs have a habit of detaching. This has not yet happened in use, just initially.
I bought this Tickr x over a month ago. It's awesome. I love that I can track my heart rate while I go on my Bowflex Max Trainer. The app and device is easy to use. I do recommend buying an extra strap. I workout everyday and sometimes two times a day. And having two straps is useful while the other one dries up.
