Does the KICKR Smart Trainer Measure Cadence or Heart Rate?

By design, the KICKR itself measures and transmits speed and power data. New KICKRs (not including the KICKR SNAP or CORE) also come with our RPM / Cadence sensor included.


Update: As of Sept. 4th, 2019, KICKR '18 models running Firmware v3.4.69 or newer and KICK CORE models running Firmware v1.0.11 or newer now support automatic cadence tracking and broadcasting over both Bluetooth and ANT+.


Additionally, other Bluetooth 4.0 (or newer) and ANT+ sensors can be paired with the Wahoo Fitness app. For heart rate, we recommend our TICKR heart rate monitors (not included).
