    Wahoo Heart Monitor and Wahoo Cadence/speed?

    Anyone here use the Wahoo Tickr and Strava? How about the Speed/Cadence(Blue SC) and Strava? I have a Droid Maxx(Android) smartphone which will, supposedly, work with the Wahoo equipment. I'm wanting to keep track of my effort, heart rate/speed/cadence, whether I'm using the bike on the road or using the KK Road Machine Trainer. I really don't need speed for on the road since Strava uses GPS(+ I already have a wireless cyclocomputer to glance at while riding out on the road(phone is in the jersey pocket)). I figure that when on the trainer I'll use the Wahoo App and upload the info to Strava, but when on the road, I would want to use Strava.

    I have a BlueSC (v2.0 which is due mode BLE/ANT+). No TICKR. I have a Wahoo RFLKT though. I use the Blue SC with my iPhone, and use an app called "Cyclemeter" to record my rides which does upload to Strava. I've used the Wahoo Fitness app too and that works. By coincidence I also have a KK Road Machine, and use the BlueSC with TrainerRoad to get virtual power readings.

    For Strava the BlueSC is only useful for Cadence, as Strava ignore the speed readings in favor of the GPS. This is fairly annoying, not because GPS is less accurate than the speed meter (after all the speed meter requires accurate calibration of your wheel diameter to work properly), but they could at least use the speed meter to determine when you are stopped, as Strava's GPS based stop detection sucks. Strava consistently tells me that I was cycling longer (and therefore on average, slower), than Cyclometer, because of their stop detection algorithm. I know this because if I don't stop, Cyclemeter and Strava agree on the ride time.

    Anyway - all the Wahoo stuff I have used has been great. I plan on getting a TICKR soon, maybe my wife will buy me one for Xmas.

    I use the TICKR and KICKR. Upload to Strava. TICKR seems like a perfectly adequate HRM. Pairs with Garmin too. RPM is in the mail...
    Do you have any specific questions? I've been happy.
    I had trouble using iMobileIntervals and uploading that to Strava. The data was really wonky. I think my KICKR may have been partially unplugged when I tried it.
    I've only been at it a few weeks in this particular ecosystem.

    I'm planning on using the Wahoo App while on the trainer, and Strava(or the Wahoo app) on the road.
