Complete your Wahooligan Ecosystem
The Wahoo RIVAL takes the complexity out of the term smart watch. Don’t get weighed down with niceties; touch screens, pay features, music. Get back to the basics of performance with this lightweight, 53-gram, GPS fitness watch.
Your seamless performance advantage
Let your fitness watch connect seamlessly to complete your Wahoo ecosystem without the fuss of compiling data across devices at the end of the day. Powered by proven ELEMNT technology and incorporating unique multisport features, RIVAL radically simplifies sports data collection, allowing you to focus on your performance, not how your equipment is working.
Simple to use; simple to see
Using the intuitive ELEMNT operating system, RIVAL delivers a simple user experience. Unique multisport features like Touchless Transition, Multisport Handover and Perfect View Zoom create a seamless performance advantage whether training or competing. Designed with a 64 colour screen, ceramic bezel and gorilla glass lens, ELEMNT RIVAL not only looks great for everyday use but will also withstand your hardest workouts.
The magic is in the system
"The real magic of RIVAL is that we were able to take everything we did with the ELEMNT bike computer and create a perfect parallel, giving triathletes and runners the same ease of use that cyclists have had access to since 2016,” said Chip Hawkins, founder of Wahoo. “A key design concern was making a watch with looks to match its performance. This is a stylish, high-performance multi-sport watch that should be the choice of any athlete looking for a lightweight GPS watch with an unbelievable battery life to track the longest races.”
Touchless multisport transition
ELEMNT RIVAL is the first sport GPS device to innovate the way race data follows an athlete through the stages of a multi-sport event. This proprietary Touchless Transition technology, developed for RIVAL, allows users to seamlessly transition from swim to ride to run without touching their watch. As a part of the Wahoo ecosystem, RIVAL’s Multisport Handover mode allows it to interact with ELEMNT GPS cycling computers to transition race data from the watch to a handlebar-mounted computer during the bike leg of a multi-sport activity such as a triathlon , ensuring that race data is always easy to see, easy to follow, and captured correctly so athletes can focus on their race.
Get your edge up now
RIVAL is already being used by some of the world’s best triathletes, including Ironman World Champion Jan Frodeno, American Ironman World Record holder Heather Jackson, and two-time Olympian Sarah True.

You can manually edit each leg of your triathlon or lap swim data. After the workout is synced, the athlete can modify individual legs of the triathlon by adjusting the time in that specific leg using sliders.
ELEMNT RIVAL inherently tracks the following metrics without the use of an external sensor paired: speed, distance, workout time, swim lengths, pace, stroke count, stroke rate, SWOLF.
