Complete List of Wahoo Tickr Compatible Watches

A recent study found that wrist-based heart rate monitors did not accurately measure heart rates and were off by around 20 beats per minute.

Smartwatches can be inaccurate and unreliable sometimes. However, they still offer some advantages, such as more comfortable wearability and less chance of malfunctioning.

With this, I am not trying to discourage you by any means, but an external heart rate sensor can help get better insights about your heart rate in comparison to a smartwatch.

External heart rate sensors like the Wahoo Tickr have become one of the most popular choices in recent years. Thanks to ANT+, the device is compatible with a variety of external devices, including watches & gym equipment like treadmills.

For Wahoo Tickr to work, your watch must support ANT+ or Bluetooth Host Mode.

If you don’t know, ANT+ technology enables wireless transmission of data between two electronic devices. In simple words, it lets you connect external accessories.

On the other hand, Bluetooth host mode differs from regular Bluetooth that you find on watches like Fitbit. Most watches like Garmin & Apple Watch use the Bluetooth host mode to connect wireless accessories such as earbuds, heart rate sensors, etc.

That’s a reason why you can’t connect watches like Fitbit and Amazfit to external accessories despite having Bluetooth.

In this post, you’ll find a list of compatible watch brands along with models that supports Wahoo Tickr out of the box. Let’s dive in!
