komoot review dc rainmaker

Looking at profiles next, you can create new profiles for whatever reasons you want here. iPhone claims to be water resistant, but you can’t rely on it. Happens to me all the time with the newest Cycliq (FLY12CE) to the point that I consider stopping recording if I’m navigating an unknown/new route. As far as battery usage goes, it’s honestly a bit hard for me to judge this one. See, normally you start a ride by pressing the lower right button (see 1st screenshot below). And it’s not like Hammerhead is offering a discount on the Karoo 2 to get people to commit now. Some of that is exaggerated by Varia Radar data, but a lot of it is just too much. Even the Super Pro was a slight stretch of my original intent. Like most units, you’ll manually start it once you’re ready. Fine – let’s throw more airplanes at it. But beyond those visually visible things, almost all the other changes are inside under the covers from a processing standpoint. But at least we now know the Karoo 2 isn’t perfect. Working from home also has some downsides, mainly the lack of regular face-to face contact with colleagues and drawing a clear line between what is 'home time/leisure' and 'work time'. The Karoo, and it sounds like the Karoo 2, is a hard one to place. You can in fact do workouts outside on the road as well. In the Lezyne app you’ll choose the ‘More’, then select ‘Relive’. Wanna save some cash and support the site? It just shows the turn textually (like below). My 810 went from release back in 2013 to the Fall of 2019 when the touch screen utterly failed. If I was in the map view, I would have seen that, or if a mini-map popped up, it’d have been apparent. Except – it lacks that all important audible beeper, as well as phone integration. Both indoors and outdoors you can pause the workout (without pausing the ride), and then once paused you can skip or reset a given interval (such as if you hit a stoplight and need to reset). So as I crossed the street (1st image left), seeing it was paused I instinctively tapped the right button to resume. Sometimes if one feature (BT pairing) is stuck in an issue tracker backlog there could be more issues. All three companies use backend platforms to handle your Strava/TrainingPeaks/Komoot integrations, so that’s the same here too – that’s all pre-done for you. I supposed they meant the winter holidays. Thanks Ray! Realistically speaking you won’t notice, but I did find it interesting while weighing them all in. I haven’t seen that issue on action cams since the GoPro Hero 5ish or so days. Noted in the play store app reviews a very high number of users have the same issue. From a route curation standpoint, Strava has nothing like that – and to me that’s the main power there. There isn’t any way to add workout data fields (like ‘time remaining in an interval’) to other data pages. Normaly i used the SRM PC8 for the Training Races and Marathons.. and there you know the Profile and Streets, so i missed nothing like Navigation or map. And of course – you can always sign-up to be a DCR Supporter! I’m not sure how the units show ahead/behind… it could be real progress which would be a lot more from the API or making some assumptions based on speed and doing a calculation. I would caution however that I wouldn’t overthink that random data point too much, because there’s a pretty darn (near 100%) chance that the backlight settings were different for all of them, and probably set to higher/always-on levels than not. Meaning, recording a ride, or Strava, or perhaps navigation, or perhaps structured training. So you end up with this hodge-podge of apps trying to get one cohesive unit. At the end, it’ll list any achievements you unlock – in this case the carrot, which is basically the best effort recorded by my nearest competitor. Now, once that’s done, ensure your iOS or Android app is all updated. But it’s intended as a bike computer app, which means that it avoids some of the pitfalls of small interface elements that you describe. Maybe it’s just me, but I have sports tech fatigue on the “promise of more advanced features in the future”, post launch. Like many companies in the space, Hammerhead leverages Firstbeat for some of their physio bits, in this case just calories. I think ultimately they’re pretty different beasts (though, at current pricing, an Edge 1030 -non-Plus) is only $60 more on Amazon. They still have that. Unfortunately the Karoo series don’t have any way to turn off the GPS automatically if you’re indoors on a trainer (or, via a certain ride profile). The Element bolt is small, light und easy to use…. LOL. Notably on watch reviews you’ll generally see Edge/Wahoo stats in there too. I find that the touchscreen swipes generally work good when it’s dry, but not quite as good when it gets wet. You can load from phone a route to lezyne computer (eg. I’ve tested with an android 9 mobile and it worked perfectly. Even more, if you use Backcountry.com or Competitive Cyclist with coupon code DCRAINMAKER, first time users save 15% on applicable products! Meaning, you can save 3 power meters and name them for each of your bikes if you want to. The Karoo 2 supports pairing to numerous sensor types, and supports the saving and naming of multiple sensors per type. Not a big deal, but that’ll burn more battery. With that, let’s get into it. Note that if you haven’t linked any 3rd party accounts, you can do that via the Hammerhead portal online, which is also where you can manage rides, and look at finished ride details. But it does then allow LiveTracking, as well as any other function you want that you’d normally do via WiFi (like syncing rides). You can click here to Subscribe without commenting. I was travelling several days last year and found cycle.travel on the iPhone, exporting gpx routes to the phone memory and importing those files to the Lezyne app the perfect on-the-go solution. perhaps some people love it that way but for me just doesn’t work. And many times the various documentation bits they have it woefully out of date. If you would rather plan your own adventure, komoot makes that easier, too. DISCOVER STAGESBIKE “Each Stages SB20 bike has a dual-sided power meter built into the crank arms. By default the unit will automatically have started grabbing your correct map details, even without GPS. Do you think the upgrade program from Karoo 1 is worth the deal? I would prefer that Zwift and cycling computer hardware companies would allow Zwift to send virtual GPS data allowing the headunits track on the course and show the course when uploading to Strava / Garmin Connect / etc…. Annoying! Some do charge just fine, but not the ones I’d have expected. Early in his review DC did mention that Bluetooth sync is targeted for 2021 so at least that specific functionality gap may go away. Moto e4 with android 7 – nav function is worse than useless. But these can often trip-up the Karoo into thinking there are big turns: This results in two issues, namely if you aren’t on the map page at all times. Started with a satelite view, zoomed in to the point where your run or ride started, followed your ride on a map with speed, highest speed etc and, best of all, some streetview photo’s for added atmosphere. Here, zooming further into a forested section – again, everyone near identical. My little slice of the internet, dedicated to endurance sports and sports technology. I’d be happy to read any links on the karoo forum that have more details or info on this matter. Wouldn’t upload for two days from the GPSally app, but is working again now (as of 24th June). Pick the photos you want (also, as usual). I’ve even gone to lengths to cover the back side of my Wahoo Roam with sticky alu tape to prevent that, but since I can’t ground it it’s next to useless (or maybe even making things worse). – USB-C port waterproof spec IP67 Rather, it’s a fully closed up device, so that means you won’t have the Google Play store on there to easily load Strava or Netflix. Way brighter and more readable. Ray, This is where you select workouts from TrainingPeaks that are synced from your account there. Here’s a gallery of data pages during one of my recent outdoor rides, showing some of what things look like. 2) Size and weight comparison to popular/competitor units App is free and it works. My point is that while I’ll see if I can fit another 1-2 units onto my handlebars beyond those four, that I’ve pretty well established the battery burn rates for those other units. No promised ‘behind the scenes’, no updates, no browser configuration, nothing. Unfortunately no over the air (WiFi or Bluetooth) upgrades here. DC Rainmaker Week in Review–November 15th, 2020 The Week in Review is a collection of both all the goodness I’ve written during the past week around the internet, as well as a small pile of links I found interesting – generally endurance sports related. So the Mega XL does come in at a better price point—and it features significantly more batter runtime (48hrs!) I ride at the moment 1-3h and i lose 7-10% per hour at 0 Degrees with Powermeter, Speedsensor, Heartrate and Phone connected… and with 10-35% Display brightness… i wait for the summer time too see the difference. For routes, you can actually even just put in the URL of the website (which works for Strava, RideWithGPS, Komoot, TrainingPeaks, BikeMap, Google Maps, and any website URL that ends with .GPX). I personally think that’s a bit of a mistake, as it basically gives reason for people to wait to see what arrives next spring – after all, competitors don’t pause because you stockpile. Sensors: Pair ANT+ & Bluetooth Smart sensors The Karoo 2 powers on by holding the lower left button. The Karoo 2 supports syncing structured workouts from TrainingPeaks, enabling you to complete structured workouts both inside and outside on the Karoo 2. And now the small Problems in my eys: Also, I have been having some issues with charging. On newer firmware, the Di2 graphic has been updated and we’ve seen stable phone connectivity for quite some time now. Also, minor addendum – my eyesight is generally excellent, better than 20/20 – so if I’m complaining about something being tough to read… . Oh hell no, bring on the fury of the internet! Platforms. System Update: It gets new things from the magic of the cloud DC Rainmaker took the Elite Direto XR and runs through what is new, demonstrates the new cassette compatibilities and the set up basics. As a mt biker, I’ve gotten myself into trouble by following hiking trails I can see on the Karoo, so I started using it to discover hiking routes too. Platforms. They’re not doing anything terribly inventive with their platform, but they’re also not doing anything especially substantive. I don’t use rerouting at all. Will you test our product before release? The solution is simple to make sure to pair ONLY through the Lezyne app. I rarely see issues road-cycling with bike GPS computers. In my case, I upload all rides to Strava as private, and then manually update the title and add a photo. It’s as simple as that. But I haven’t flushed out all the nuances with those. It also doesn’t support some of the more niche sensor types like tire pressure sensors (Quarq), or Muscle Oxygen (Moxy). Alternatively, for everything else on the planet, simply buy your goods from Amazon via the link below and I get a tiny bit back as an Amazon Associate. Donezo. St… That’s the biggest reason as far as I’m concerned to have a dedicated bike computer. – Settings: Twisty knobs for all the things. And I think that they’re quickly becoming the most viable competitor to Garmin’s Edge series aside from Wahoo. It’s basically like an overpass. The basic package comes with an out-front mount and a … Unlike every other company, you can’t see a quick preview of where the ride was map-wise, and even structured workout rides don’t show a quick chart of the workout. And look – let’s say I take complete responsibility for not fully understanding that the pause/resume button becomes the ‘Death to Ride’ button after some period of time. Looking for places to swim, bike and run? * The Strava app is more limited in general. Read our full Sufferfest review. Won’t buy..Karoo needs to add a Nacho Salsa sensor! Like, trash can fire. A lot of companies have tried and failed, and Lezyne clearly isn’t one of them. Does sideloading the Trailforks app work pretty well / have you been able to test that at all? Megan, As much as I would like to because of the K2’s feature set and usability I have been holding off on upgrading to the K2 as well. But that sentiment is changing (rightfully so), and it sounds like there’s some very near-term announcements that will be made in this space, for some meaningful 3rd party integrations/apps. And we will be adding plenty more new features and integrations down the road. And then, here’s a look at the weights of them. – Added 4G coverage (2G/3G/4G, with your own SIM) Komoot Premium allows users to download worldwide maps for use offline, receive detailed weather reports for planned tours, make use of sport-specific maps (with routes and … I’ve got a small flotilla of units, and if the weather doesn’t suck, I’ll put a bunch on the handlebars to see which things impact it the most. Nacho Cheese Status: This indicates whether there is a nacho cheese dispenser nearby or not It’s definitely not the fastest unit to startup for the first time, roughly akin to starting any modern smartphone (because…under the covers, that’s what it is). Summary. mine is North Somerset) - but you can add regions for £3.99 each as in-app purchases. i.e. I’m from out of the country and will be visiting the US, what’s the best triathlon shop in city XYZ? As such, in turn, the implementation of that across the industry is also trash can fire, especially in pedals. Looking for the best sports tech deals for the holidays? And, the temperature was basically 0* to 2*C. Most of my tests have been with screen recording enabled, which burns battery like nobody’s business, so I didn’t want to use those otherwise in my battery testing results. It ignores the massive cycle-highway that basically exists alongside the southern edge of the rowing basin, forcing me off onto minor cycling paths no matter what I try. I’ll do some non-navigation-enabled battery tests side. There’s a host of changes I want to make in those charts, so I might roll them in there. The map downloads are via Bluetooth (which is handy), but, it’s also a wee bit slow (because….Bluetooth). We test for app/device compatibility with multiple versions of Android on devices from MANY different manufacturers (Samsung, Google, Motorola Huawei, etc. I’ve been through resetting the the phone the GPS multiple times which sometimes gets things working for a ride or part of a ride! The fact is, it just works. I use Garmin Connect as my fitness tracking hub (steps, sleep, body metrics activities all in one place) and TrainerRoad as my indoor training option with their planning. Well, here’s the skinny on all my favorite training locations – complete with maps and downloadable routes. I know, I know…but hey – we gotta have sections otherwise this wall of text is even less approachable. I was really hoping this would be an easier choice, but at $450 the 1030 is hard to compete with. Meanwhile, along the bottom of the dashboard are the core areas of the Karoo 2: – Rides: Your past activities A) Why pairing on Bluetooth? if You want to start cycling with a “device” the best and most cost effective way is to use Wahoo Fitness app. The Karoo is simply not a viable solution for serious riders until it has a realistic minimum battery life of 5 or 6 hours. Still, the one argument that I think a lot of people overlook aside from all the hardware things noted correctly above – is just the cohesiveness of a phone as a bike computer. Many successful companies are able to do so, but perhaps the Hammerhead decision makers aren’t enthusiastic about that for the moment. Tethering to a phone app for in-ride networking is certainly a viable alternate choice. Really wanting this for Mountain Biking – does the Karoo map system include a lot of mtb trails? Or heck, I’d also love to see Dropbox added – it’s one of my favorite Wahoo ELEMNT series features. Conditions include everything from tree/building cover to weather. Well, a beeper. Ok, that’s a waste of time. I agree with the comment about zwift’s companion app is terrible. Still, in the grand scheme of things – that’s fairly minor. Wahoo, Garmin, Hammerhead, and Stages files all write the battery level to the .FIT file each time it changes. And frankly, that continues here. I actually kinda like that, though I can see both sides of the story. Sorry Lama. Which is really disappointing because as DCR says there is a lot to like in the package they produce. Digg. With about half my rides off-road, it looks like there’s a real downside to Karoo in terms of map support. And unfortunately, today is one of those days. . The first order of business, if you haven’t yet done so, is to upgrade your firmware. What are your least favorite countries/places? However, there are some settings it doesn’t pull in – such as sensors. In most ways, the Hammerhead Karoo 2 is probably the most eagerly anticipated bike computer release of 2020. Are you coming to Paris? Interesting.. thank you for the response. For the purposes of this review, I’ve zoned in on how the ELEMNT works as a tool for bikepacking, i.e. Point being, that’s the only error I can find in my GPS tracks. It’ll do a few step Komoot/Lezyne authentication request/confirm/re-confirm tango with you, and in a few seconds you’ll be ready. You should check out my videos. And ultimately, this is pretty darn similar from an end-user perspective. I’m not sure why it just doesn’t say ‘Ride Paused’, since that’s more clear than ‘Ride not recording’ – which basically sounds like something has gone horribly wrong technically. I practically never need on the fly routing. You can see screenshots of the pop-over in this section, but it’s the same on all Garmin devices. Like just about any bike computer GPS it’s got all the basics you’d expect: – Records your ride using GPS – up to 12hrs battery life Anywhere! If you found this review useful you can become a DCR Supporter to help support the site, details on that at the bottom! It’s not a Zwift substitute, but it’s a Trainerroad substitute. It’s really great! Notify me of followup comments via e-mail. This ist what i hoped for when Polar Komoot integration was announced. so we’ll see. Twitter. Earlier this summer Elite launched four new trainers/rollers, and in doing so greatly simplified their trainer lineup. This one I doubled down on Karoo 2’s, with two of them. With live segments being a premium feature for which I already pay strava to use, there shouldn’t be a limit. Sounds like the Elon Musk rule of economics for self driving cars, “buy now or expect the price to go up further.”. For example, there’s no structured workout data field/page customization. Except, I wish it would tell me who the heck that was, since I’ve got no idea. Rudy Baylor, the hero of "The Rainmaker,'' works the other end of the scale from the legal superpowers in most of John Grisham's stories. Second – what’s new? I would argue that I’d really like to see Hammerhead set a goal of increasing these partnership accounts by 3x by the end of 2021. Photo: Komoot. Also nice will be a Small / medium / Large Font for the Datafields at the Map Overview. Here’s a good random example of an Edge 530/830/1030Plus together on the same ride: link to analyze.dcrainmaker.com. Summary. Douglas - Fullcoursetrails. It’s also got significantly upgraded internals that will eventually be tapped for more advanced features. I do think the mapping is excellent, but I have a hard time making that endorsement too strongly since it’s never worked reliably for me. July 6, 2020 | Around the Web. At the Moment i can touch the Display with my gloves, but this varies with the gloves. Note that there’s *no need* for this workout to be executed only indoors. But if you have to list/sell/ship/etc it for $150, it’s probably not worth the extra $30 (on a $400 purchase). One thing to note on pricing: Retail for the Bolt is $229.99, and the Edge 520 Plus is $279.99 (as listed on their websites). ReddIt. It applies to a slate of GPS units (including the higher end Mega C and Mega XL, but also the various derivatives and lesser priced versions). Once ready, hit the ‘Go’ button, which will transfer it to your Lezyne unit, and off you go. Once you’ve pulled open the route it’ll show the route on the map with directional arrows, as well as your current location. My experience with my Super GPS and the packaged speed cadence and HRM has been underwhelming. You’ll go ahead and tap on one, which will show the map, and elevation profile (as well as distance). The main area that Hammerhead could improve here a bit though is customization of workout data fields. I contacted Lezyne on facebook and it was an error caused by their website being updated. But it still regularly drops rides which is super infuriating. For a company which does have a special relationship with strava (they have access to this private live segment api at the least), and for which they are very likely paying strava (Ray has reported previously how everybody but Garmin has to pay strava for live segments), this seems like a silly way to run things on Strava’s part. I’m optimistic they’ve got a team in place to do that, combined with a substantial investment round last summer. It’s super quick. This explains the ‘Ride not recording’ banner up top (3rd photo above). * Battery – it’s good to have a bike computer that gets recharged in the garage and is fully charged for your next ride. I think that Hammerhead claims 10 hour battery life for the K1, though I don’t recall the exact number at this moment. And that’s a problem when there’s either a legit phantom error, or, in this particular case – my routing having a single data point a few dozen meters down one street. And, of course, Lezyne’s lower-priced offerings fill that gap super well with strong connectivity on ANT+ & Bluetooth Smart sensors and more. While it isn’t yet populated as much as Trailforks or Strava in the UK, it offers a number of nifty features that could get you to stray away from the mtb’ers favourites. Thanks for reading! Indoor riding for me is just practice for outdoor riding. The paired sensors will show along the top, such as power, shifting, or cadence. Typically speaking though, I don’t tend to focus on battery values for under 30-45 minutes, because things are still warming up and stabilizing. Again the Karoo 2 and FR745 take the cake for best entry/exit. Can’t believe it’s already been a month! I don’t want to read too much into the support rep’s reply, but it sounds like they don’t want to risk annoying Strava with a big data pulls, but there may be room for improvement if they are more selective. Ok – for the love of all things, let’s finally start riding. Seriously, I’m going to go under airport taxiways, under airplanes (for real), and every bridge I can find. As you probably noticed by looking below, I also take time to answer all the questions posted in the comments – and there’s quite a bit of detail in there as well. I say “you” because you’re the only one who has the pile of devices and mounts required. I’d have to dig into my notes on that one. – Storage in the Karoo 2 is 32GB instead of 16GB Next, there’s the Relive integration. 1. Since I primarily use the device for navigating backroads and ‘gravel’ exploration, this is a really big problem, and also why, as a K1 pre-order person, I did not pre-order the 2. I don’t see this as critical path, but rather things that Hammerhead needs to balance with everything else. Understand that wahoo supports more, but I don’t think they are pulling more than just my best time and the KOM time. In principle you could use an iPhone/Android as a cycling computer, but in practice this would be annoying for a number of minor issues: You’ll also see your battery stats and the time of day on that upper line. So if you wanted to you could charge up a pile of similar featured models from Wahoo, Garmin, Hammerhead, etc., ride the same route, then show the battery burn for each. What do you think is the real world battery life of the K2? And the USB port placement is unfortunate – can’t be used to charge the unit while riding. – then go for a heart rate monitor Moreover, it also supports ANT+ FE-C trainers, so it can automate these workouts for you on your smart trainer (all of them support ANT+ FE-C these days). Ok, that’s my Experience for the first Time with Hammerhead Karoo2. After all, the bigger screened Edge 1030/1030 Plus is still barely lighter than it. I’m headed to Washington DC – what do you recommend for training? Someone explain the reason why they persist with SIMs, that doesn’t include the phrase “well SIM cards are cheap in my country”, because syncing via phone costs me $0. – Can do structured workouts from TrainingPeaks, including smart trainer control. Does the anti-glare coating makes a big difference? Here’s that data set: Look – in the trees, it’s off by one meter! Not really. * Lock screen – you don’t want to have to unlock your phone repeatedly during a ride. Though, typically speaking cold weather is one of those things that does indeed largely impact battery. In-Depth product reviews, running and triathlon goodness, and slices of my day to day life. Meaning, I’ve been using Komoot to find specific people in the community that lead rides, and then stalk their routes (which usually have photos/commentary/etc). – then go for a power meter And while there are nuanced differences, I think they need slightly less nuance. Now my initial intent wasn’t actually to necessarily focus on the Relive/Komoot piece specifically, but I got distracted while toying with their connected lights. In the above video I go through the following things: 1) Complete unboxing Making it more and more seamless, and with less and less hurdles. The main changes to the Karoo 2 are largely hardware driven. Bikes: You can specify a bike and odometer here. Your call. But you can use the Buttons for switching the Display and ZOOM IN and OUT.. ! Are you willing to review or test beta products? And what’s changed from the original Karoo 1? ), but have not been able to test Android 7 as it has not been supported by Google for some time now. It’s annoying to fire a bike computer / a watch and suddenly see “It was updated to this version” or “New version available. It’s not terribly ideal. Sad to see they have the same 100 limit as Garmin. Rudy Baylor, the hero of "The Rainmaker,'' works the other end of the scale from the legal superpowers in most of John Grisham's stories. Komoot is designed specifically to be easy to use, so it’s great for introducing people to the outdoors. As long as you favorite a Strava route, it’ll automatically show up here. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. It took a long time to find a good app on Android (so many of them suck), but I finally found a free app called Jepster that I really like (and for what it’s worth, zero affiliation with the developer). This is because it’s pulling in all your settings from their cloud platform. Correct. I suspect this is an Android issue ultimately so an honest and open publication from Lezyne on what versions of android have been tested would be useful. Along with some of the tallest buildings in Amsterdam (at the airport…go figure). . I cover all the units to buy (and avoid) for the 2020-2021 indoor training season. vb Just my two cents. When you Upload your ride to Strava, the AVG W and NP is always smaller then in the overview… No problem, the product comparison data is constantly updated with new products and new features added to old products! I have a pre-order and not entirely sure why I placed it. We are all stoked on the new Komoot and Relive integration. WhatsApp. Which is also pretty similar to what Komoot and Wahoo have. Garmin has the maps pre-loaded for the region you bought it in, and extra maps can be downloaded later (depending on which unit you get). That said, given this was a month ago and four firmware versions ago (beta still I think), I haven’t seen that since (I also haven’t been back to that spot since). So i do a Pro Order for the Karoo2…. $250-299 then I will def give it a try. That’s been the goal since Hammerhead first announced the original Karoo 1 years ago. And at present, no companies have bit – largely because till now, I don’t think most companies have seen Hammerhead as viably competitive. The matte black box accented with a glossy Hammerhead logo slides open from the side, revealing a tiered set of components. All of them tend to be minor, but all of them require you to be on the map page at all times. So, hang tight on the lights! I seem to remember to have signed up for an email notification so that I can order in time for the holidays. Required fields are marked.If you would like a profile picture, simply register at Gravatar, which works here on DCR and across the web. But my point here is more subtle – Hammerhead has made tremendous strides in getting the Karoo 2 to where it’s at, via investing time in the underlying Karoo software platform for everyone.
