I deleted it and tried to reconfigure from the unit, but no luck. Anyone else been able to make this work? Considering the phone never stayed connected with the 820 for more than 3 minutes, I’ve been pretty underwhelmed with the 820 so far since basically none of the fancy features they advertise actually work.

Comment on Cycliq Fly12 Bike Light/Camera In-Depth Review by Andrew Hagen Fri, 26 Aug 2016 23:05:21 +0000 Hi Everyone – we have launched the BETA version of the Android app on the Google Play store with the following info:

The official CycliqPlus (BETA) app for Fly12 – bike camera & 400 lumen light. Enjoy your bike rides and capture all the action with the FULL HD camera. Use Fly12’s integrated bike light to illuminate your path in the dark or for extra visibility during the day.

Use the CycliqPlus app to change the settings of your Fly12 and share your favourite bits of footage. Don’t forget to share your best videos with us on to win great prices and discounts.

We realise there are some things that still need to be refined. We are aware of them, and we are working on them. Namely:

1. Strava overlays are only available in metric units – adding imperial units is our next highest priority and we hope to resolve this in our next build
2. CycliqPlus supports Android 4.3 or greater
3. On some Android models, the bike alarm won’t sound. Instead, a message bubble will appear on the notification bar.
4. Better user interface messaging
5. The most important thing to remember about CyclicPlus BETA is exactly that, it is a BETA app. This means that this is not the final version and we are working on known issues and will be addressing bugs as they are logged into our support system. Please let us know your CycliqPlus version, Android device model and Android version number when you contact us at link to

Comment on Wahoo ELEMNT GPS Bike Computer In-Depth Review by Brendan ONeill Fri, 26 Aug 2016 22:30:34 +0000 Ray, Great review as always.

A few questions for users of the Elemnt and Powertap P1’s.

I’m only on day 2 with my Elemnt so my experience is very limited.

Day 1- I didn’t have any issues with pairing my phone or pedals (or Wahoo HRM Tickr X- which I love and doesn’t have any battery issues, or Wahoo Blue SC). I initially saw Powertap ANT, Powertap (Left) and Powertap (right). I paired the left and right and decided to ignore the ANT+ sensor since everything I have is BT. I went for a ride and all was good.

Day 2- I installed iOS 9.3.5 (not sure if it’s related or not). When I powered my Elemnt later, I received a message that my phone didn’t pair. I went into the settings and saw the power taps were gone. I tried to re-add and only the Powertap ANT+ comes up now.

Questions are:
Anyone else see this?
Anyone else having issues since installing 9.3.5?
What sensor name(s) do others use?

Wahoo support said the Powertap ANT+ sensor is actually BT. They also say the ANT+ instance is recommended.

Comment on Everything you ever wanted to know: Garmin’s new $1,500 Fenix Chronos Watch Series by Alfie Fri, 26 Aug 2016 21:47:54 +0000 This is why I use the Vivoactive (non-HR variant) as it looks respectable enough to wear out or when visiting clients. I have a TAG for special events but if these were in my budget, I would definitely consider grabbing one.

Comment on Hands-on: Stryd announces new running power meter by Robert Dick Fri, 26 Aug 2016 21:44:23 +0000 We’ll have more information out on our approach shortly. For now, I can say that it does not assume a particular set of numbers quantifying running form are optimal across different athletes. It will guide you to a different form than another runner with different physical structure and conditioning. The foundation for this approach is leg spring stiffness, a fairly well developed concept in the physiology literature.

Comment on 4iiii Precision Power Meter In-Depth Review by Marklemcd Fri, 26 Aug 2016 21:36:03 +0000 I bought the precision with the factory install option today (8/26), I wonder how long the total turnaround will be? Will there be a long lag before I get my shipping package?
