Wahoo ELEMNT BOLT GPS Bike Computer

The new Wahoo ELEMNT BOLT has a 64-color, high-contrast screen, making it easy to focus on ride data. The 2.2” inch screen is made of durable, scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass. Now featuring Smart Navigation, the ELEMNT BOLT automatically reroutes riders who stray from their planned route, lets riders change destinations, route back to the start, and retrace their rides right from the computer, without having to use their phone. An updated user interface offers customizable, color-highlighted fields to make it simple to focus on specific data metrics. An ambient light sensor automatically adjusts the backlight to ensure that the screen is always easy to see, even on dawn patrols or dusky rides.

The aerodynamic, low-profile body carries on the sleek design of the original BOLT. Quick View LEDs on the top of the screen provide turn-by-turn directions, signal approaching Strava Live segments, and provide notifications. With a 15-hour runtime and onboard memory increased to 16GB (from 4GB), the BOLT is designed to make exploring simple with millions of miles of roads and trails already preloaded.

As with all their bike and watch computers, it’s simple to set the BOLT up using their smartphone ELEMNT app. To pair the BOLT up to your phone, read the BOLT’s on-screen QR code, and the app and BOLT will walk you through all the setup steps. From there, you can customize the screens, pages, data, LED’s, sounds, notifications, sensors, etc., as desired. The app interface allows you to customize what the BOLT is doing instantly, so you don’t have to use the BOLT itself for any changes. I happen to like the top LED’s to show my heart rate, so I can follow the color-coding (blue, green, yellow, orange, red) to see what my current HR zones are during a workout. The app makes it very intuitive to use and set up the BOLT, and you can customize things to your heart’s content.

The new BOLT has an amazingly sharp and crisp screen, with easy-to-read font and maps. The 64-color is a nice addition, as is the larger onboard memory. The screen is nice and bright, making it easier to read things in both bright sunlight and when things get dim out.  I like that they added advanced navigation features to keep yourself on track, on the route, retrace the route, etc. The top three buttons have a nice tactile feel and distinctive click, and it’s easy to page through the screens.

The new compact and aerodynamic BOLT offers a vivid and crisp 64-color screen and features advanced navigation functions, a USB-C connector, tactile convex buttons, a rich UI, increased memory, and an ambient light sensor.
