The gizmo is Wahoo’s first cycling computer with a full color screen. The 2.7” display comes with an ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts its brightness. ROAM also comes with Quick Look LED functionality and an aero mounting system.
Navigation has received a boost and offers features you won’t find on other devices in the ELEMNT line. These will help put you back on track when you wonder off course, allow you to find the quickest way home or create a new route on the fly.
Like other ELEMNT computers, ROAM integrates with the entire Wahoo Fitness Ecosystem. it features both ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart connections so plays nice with third party sensors, too. Battery life is an excellent 17 hours between charges, more than enough for even the longest of rides.
“As more cyclists are using their bikes to explore lesser-trafficked areas, or navigating while riding new roads or trails, we are so excited to offer ROAM — a computer purposefully designed to meet the challenges of cyclists around the world, especially navigating while riding,” said Chip Hawkins, Wahoo CEO and Founder.
“With ROAM, we’ve taken our proven, intuitive, and easy-to-use ELEMNT platform — loved by all kinds of riders — and added features to create a powerful new tool that cyclists can use to guide them on every kind of ride.”
