Rated 5 out of 5 by from Part of a Nice System I bought this computer when I started using Zwift, and switched to Wahoo sensors. When it became clear that the Wahoo sensors didn't sync with my Garmin 500 computer, I ordered an Elemnt Bolt (I've since also purchased a Wahoo Kickr trainer). Things I like: size, quick warmup, clear and bright screen, ability to enlarge screen data, front buttons for most functions, startup reminders (really important as we get older), ability to program from Android cell phone, pairing with Kickr, ability to access history from computer. Dislikes: enlarge/decrease buttons are stiff, need to set time alerts using lap timer. Haven't used map function yet (too cold outside), but looking forward to testing it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good features, bad execution I have been using Bolt for a week now, as a replacement for Edge 520. Nothing wrong with the Edge, just wanted to try Bolt as everyone has such a high opinion about it. I must say, most of the reviews online are very biased and don't mention the problems I am experiencing... The bad: 1. Display readability in daylight - it is not better than Edge 520 with backlight off on both devices. It is the same. To have the best readability you should have backlight on. 2. No backlight adjustment - on Edge 520 you can adjust backlight intensity in 10% increments. On Bolt it's either 0% or 100% intensity. Not very good for battery life, especially if you consider having backlight on during the day for best readability. 3. Aero mount - it's impossible to center Bolt with the stem because the mount is too short laterally. Also it's slightly rotated to the right. I'm really wondering why they did this, as it's really ugly and you notice it every time you look at it. How hard is it to make a mount that centers the Bolt and is straight...? 4. Intermittent phone connection dropouts. The solution for now is unpairing and pairing again till the problem reoccurs (not a real solution tho). 5. Frequent sensor dropouts. Sometimes the sensor will reconnect, other times they won't and you have to restart Bolt for it to recognize the sensor again. Yesterday during indoor workout, both powermeter and trainer connections were dropped and I had to stop workout and restart the device. Not really nice if you're in the middle of hard interval... 6. Activity profiles - they don't exist. This is a very useful feature on Garmin. Every profile has it's own screens and remembers if GPS is on or off so it's really easy to switch between indoor and outdoor workouts. On Bolt you have to enter mobile phone app or settings in Bolt everytime and check the indoor option. It would be better if it's automated in some way (for example if it detects trainer, then it automatically switches to indoor). 7. No PM calibration reminder. You have to remember to calibrate your PM every time, there is no reminder so it takes a few additional clicks to do it. It would be much better if the device would warn you to calibrate the PM once it detects it after being turned on. 8. Need to have a subscription with Training Peaks or Todays Plan to be able to use custom workouts and schedule them in calendar. You get this for free on Garmin... Still waiting for the option to import .fit workouts manually into the device. 9. Unable to tether the device to the bike without buying a tether which costs $15. (A piece of plastic, a screw, and cord). The good: 1. The device is more user friendly than Garmin. 2. Configuring it through the mobile app is a joy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Element Bolt Had the unit for a few weeks. First impression the unit is very good. Color screen would be nice, navigation could be a little easier less clunky to create routes. I would also like a notification feature for nutrition alerts.
Date published: 2018-02-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mostly great! I love the customization, and features of this product. It can do so much, and works great. It's not perfect, though. A couple of cons that don't need to be there: - there's a 6-hour limit of how long you can pause an activity. Why?...no clue. - if the 6 hour limit is exceeded, the paused ride is saved, but it is corrupted and not uploadable to Strava and other similar sites. Should DEFINITELY be a software fix. - why does the phone's location data have to be on to even link up to the BOLT?? That needs to be removed from the app.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from pretty good purchased this over my 520, and does the job very well. my only gripe is that there is no backlight adjustment?? especially when starting out in the dary, transitioning to light... wouldve thought it was a no brainer to have this feature. maybe an update?
Date published: 2018-02-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and service This has everything i need. Love that it comes with two mounts so i can easily change between my MTB and Roadie.
Date published: 2018-02-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just awesome! Bought it as an upgrade to Garmin Edge 520. Couldn't be happier with the decision. I use it a lot for structured trainings, and this makes it so easy to follow trainings! Setup is so easy and also ease of use is great! So so much better than 520. The companion app is great.
