Wahoo Fitness

Wahoo Fitness will have two brand new products to show at Interbike. For now, here is their Blue HR Heart Rate Strap for iPhone users. The Blue HR retails for $79.99 and is available now. It is the world’s first Bluetooth Smart heart rate strap made for the iPhone 4S. This heart rate strap and App combination transforms your iPhone into an all-in-one training device, great for runners, cyclists, and other fitness enthusiasts. The Wahoo Fitness Blue HR heart rate strap connects wirelessly to the iPhone 4S without the need for any adapters and delivers accurate real-time heart rate data through the free Wahoo Fitness App.

Additionally, their open API allows other popular Apps, such as Strava, RunKeeper, MapMyRide, Cyclemeter, MotionX-GPS, and 321Run to work with the Blue HR. With the Wahoo Blue HR and your favorite fitness App, you now have your heart rate data, your playlists, your phone, GPS maps and more all in one device.

White Lightning
White Lightning was also diplaying their wares at SaddleDrive. I have not personally used White Lightning in years, but I’m glad to see them still around. Featured here is the Chain Johnny, a cover for putting on your bike while traveling with it inside of your car. Promoted as something to allow cyclists to “Transport Bicycles with No Damage, No Mess!” The Chain Johnny uses a rip-resistant, 2-ply rubber/nylon material that is also water resistant. It opens and closes with Velcro closures. The MSRP is $19.99 and is available from your local White Lightning dealer.
