It was only a matter of time before Wahoo entered the sports watch market. The RIVAL automatically transitions from one activity to the next, tracks your transition times, and records time and other data for each segment. Here’s my review and set-up guide.
Last November, the folks in Atlanta dropped the Wahoo ELEMNT RIVAL into the deep end of the pool to compete with the likes of Garmin, Polar, Suunto, and Coros. For any PEZ readers who happen to be triathletes… you’re the demographic the RIVAL is squarely aimed at.
What makes it different from all the other watches currently on the market is touchlesses transition. Just hit “start” in triathlon mode and start your first leg (default is swimming). The RIVAL automatically transitions from one activity to the next, as well as tracking your transition times. Just hit “stop” when you cross the finish line.
