Re: What if AeroPod could be paired to a cycling computer as a heart rate monitor?

What about headunits that connect via Bluetooth rather than Ant+? Have you any idea if the Bluetooth Special Interest Group are going to release a Bluetooth CdA profile? I’m thinking mostly about Bluetooth connected phone apps and the newer Suunto watches mainly.

Re: Broke my Aeropod racking my bike in a Triathlon

Thanks, I am actually going to do that. I was already going to remove it for bike transport, but will reattach when loading food/drink. My experience is that it is actually other competitors that bash things. I used to have a magnet based speed sensor and someone knocked it off so my Newton+ went to...

Re: Upgrading from Newton to Aeropod, & Wahoo TICKR

my previously preferred App, run meter/cyclemeter, doesn't appear to compatible with multiple device types over bluetooth e.g.. aeropod and even indoor trainer. The only good bit to the app is that it can be started using Siri (since iOS 12); not sure that one feature is worth paying for a subscript...

Re: What is AeroPod where does it inthe whole scheme of things?

I really hate all the complex button pushing. Newton is MUCH simpler. I agree, but I think we might be in the minority, though you’ve made me think - I’m going to resurrect a 2013 Wahoo RFLKT+. The 4 buttons aren’t as easy to hit as the middle one on a Newton, but they’re real and don’t need specia...

Re: What is AeroPod where does it inthe whole scheme of things?

I liked the Newton+ too and the uncluttered Display (in daytime anyway). Modern headunits have turn-by-turn notifications, mapping, phone notifications etc. I think they had a choice between trying to compete in a market with giant sized companies or concentrate on what they do best, so I understand...

Re: Upgrading from Newton to Aeropod, & Wahoo TICKR

Incidentally the device calls itself “powerpod” and not “Aeropod”. That wasn’t me being odd. I just hadn’t corrected it when I took the screenshot.

Re: Upgrading from Newton to Aeropod, & Wahoo TICKR

I answered my own question; FB866ACB-D82B-404D-B3B0-4818DCC26402.jpeg The Powerpod appears in the Wahoo App as a source for Power, Speed and Cadence. Even in a non-4 profile it doesn’t bridge heart rate so you still need a Bluetooth heart rate monitor. I haven’t tested on any other devices, like wat...

Re: Upgrading from Newton to Aeropod, & Wahoo TICKR

I guess my point is pointless as I didn’t realise the Aeropod transmitted power over Bluetooth to third party apps. I can however confirm that the 4iiii Viiiiva app bridges the Aeropod power data to the Wahoo phone app on iPhone. Bit pointless though if I could have got power direct over Bluetooth. ...

Re: Upgrading from Newton to Aeropod, & Wahoo TICKR

This is exactly what I have done. I have the Wahoo Tickr X variety of Tickr as the memory is useful for wetsuit swimming. The lack of display is vaguely annoying, but I use an old watch (Ambit 2S). If I exceed the speed limit for motorised traffic it turns the light on as I’ve written a program on i...

Instructions on how to merge data types

I actually mainly do this with swimming but can see no reason it wouldn’t work with cycling (I merge GPS/pace/stroke rate from a Platysens Marlin with HR data from a Wahoo Tickr X that has a memory). Powerhouse App syncs to Strava with no HR data, although it should have Bluetooth HR as even rubbish...

Security Mod

I wouldn’t feel safe leaving the AP on the bike whilst swimming & the device has already got a bit scuffed from putting on and off, so I wondered about replacing the screw that holds the device and the two in the device with security screws that no one is likely to have a bit to undo. As there is th...

Please go blue for one in future devices. It is at the end of the visual spectrum. Also it activates peripheral vision, whereas red light doesn’t.

You are right. I’ve looked at my old Newton+ too. I think it may be the same. I had always assumed it may have been me being stupid that had made it square by putting it in the wrong way.
