Wahoo has officially unveiled its Wahoo TICKR X and Wahoo Tickr earlier this month. Both products come with readjustments, upgrades and completely new features. Both these products have went through a redesign which has lead them to having a streamlined appearance and an overall elegant design. As claimed by Wahoo, there is no chest strap lighter than these in the market right now. This smart fitness strap has an overall weight of 48 grams including the weight of the strap along with the pod.

This redesign sits over the chest much more naturally now with stays more secure at all times in all kinds of work outs.
