Wahoo Blue SC: a velokompyyuter from iPhone 4S
Different accessories for iPhone and other iOS-devices there is a great unlimited quantity, including decisions for sports and health. Among such it is possible to remember iHealth which defines pressure of blood, about Nike + Fuelband for people conducting very active way of life, and the hero of this news certainly will please cyclists. Wahoo Blue SC turns iPhone 4S in the most real velokompyyuter.
In due time we brought up a question, and it is necessary to take iPhone 4S, owning iPhone 4? Representations were divided, but if you want to "pump over" the is great by means of the Wahoo Blue SC sensor, it is necessary to pass nevertheless. The matter is that it is one of the first accessories using the module Blyutuz 4.0. It is made not for the sake of popular inscriptions in the fair brochure, and of practical judgments.
I will remind that Blyutuz 3.0 provides much overestimated speed of data transmission in comparison with Blyutuz 2.х, but at all this very diligent discharges the accumulator. And here the module Blyutuz 4.0 who has got to all devices of Apple of the last generation, including new iPad and Mac, is aimed directly at the highest economy of energy. Thus, one replaceable battery tablet (CR2032) in Wahoo Blue SC will suffice for two years of independent operation of the sensor. A minus of such decision only one — it is compatible only to iPhone 4S and new iPad.
In fact, the accessory represents absolutely standard odometer working with application of pair of magnetic labels. One fastens on a pedal, the 2nd — on a wheel spoke. Process of the Wahoo Blue SC installation is visually shown in this roller:
When the accessory is placed and connected to iPhone, it is possible to begin introduction with what the free Wahoo Fitness Odometer App firm supplement will help. It will show the general run is great (from the moment of sensor placement) or results in a certain gleam of time. Not including that, open API allows foreign developers to add Wahoo Blue SC support in own appendices. For example, in Cyclemeter and Strava such is. And this direct expansion of functionality of an accessory with possibility of the accounting of the burned calories, the covered distance, speed of movement, etc. Accessory cost on an official site makes only $60.
