Wahoo has brought some solid GPS cycling computers in the form of the ELEMNT Bolt and the ELEMNT, that have given cyclists an alternative choice to the popular Garmin Edge devices. Now, here comes the Wahoo ELEMNT Rival
Its about time for Wahoo to give Garmin a run for its money in the form of the Wahoo ELEMNT Rival GPS watch that may give GPS watches like the Fenix 5 or Forerunner series a serious challenger.
According to leaked FCC filing the device is listed as a multisport GPS heart rate watch and this was done back in 2017 with all rumours point to a likely launch this year

- What will it cost? ELEMNT Rival is not available yet
Wahoo ELEMNT Rival watch release date
There isn’t much information about the release date for the ELEMNT Rival, But my early predications suggestion and based on a summer 2018 release
Wahoo ELEMNT Rival specs and features
Very little is known about the ELEMNT Rival as of yet, but I suspect based on the FCC filings it will feature, GPS, Bluetooth, Optical HR sensor and will track a variety of different activities and sports. I suspect the ELEMNT Rival will also support triathlon.
Wahoo has brought a number of top class products recently and the hope is that the ELEMNT rival will be a GPS fitness watch that will take on the likes of Suunto and Garmin.
In terms of the smart features, I suspect that Wahoo will look to at least match those found on the Garmin Fenix or the Suunto range, so I don’t think it will be on par with the Apple Watch.
Wahoo ELEMNT Rival price
Google Pixel smartwatch is yet to be released, but if I was to have a guess based on the current fitness watch market and Wahoo’s pricing for other products. You should see pricing for the ELEMNT Rival to be around $300/£299 when its released later this year.
