ATLANTA (BRAIN) — For the first time, Wahoo Fitness is now offering its mobile Fitness app for Android devices.
The new app can be found in the Google Play Store.
"Over 80 percent of the smartphones shipped around the world run on Android. That's well over a billion athletes that can now leverage the full power of Wahoo products and sensors to enhance and inspire their workout," said Chip Hawkins, Wahoo's CEO. "The most powerful fitness device that most athletes have access to is the smartphone right in their pocket. True to our belief that athletes should have the right to choose, we're clearly very happy to bring another OS platform to the Wahooligan community."
Android users will be able to combine the app with Wahoo Fitness products and sensors to track heart rate and stride rate data, cycling speed, cadence, and power data for running and cycling activities.
At launch, Wahoo products supported by the Android app include: TICKR, BlueHR, BlueSC, RPM and the KICKR trainer. Additional products will be supported in the coming months.
Users also will be able to upload their workout data to: Strava, RunKeeper, MapMyFitness, Nike+, TrainingPeaks or GarminConnect.
Users must have a device running Android version 4.3 or newer and that allows Third Party App Access to the device's Bluetooth 4.0 (Smart) Radio.
