Wahoo Tickr Questions


Hello All!!

So I have a wahoo tickr I use when I am on the trainer. I just wondered if anyone else has one and if it eats up batteries? Mine seems to go through a battery about every 3 weeks?

Anyone else notice this?



I haven’t changed my tickr battery in years, and it gets used 3-4x/week.


Wonder why mine is crapping out so fast then.


I had an issue with my first TICKR X and opened a ticket with Wahoo… they then sent me a replacement which thankfully has been behaving ever since.


Yup - raise the issue with Wahoo or the dealer you bought it from… they’re very good at putting things right.


Will do thanks!


Forgot to say: My tickr has gone over a year now without needing battery replaced. I’m also a Wahoo dealer and have only had one come back to me, for which we received a replacement very quickly to keep the customer happy.


I just replaced mine after about 6 months. I will reiterate what others have said on this forum, that you should contact Wahoo about the frequency of battery replacements.

Hope it works out!


May be a silly question, but do you disconnect it from the strap and wipe off any sweat after use? It may not shut down if it sees any electrical connection between the snap terminals.


That is a great point! The salt may be interfering with the strap. You could try cleaning the strap off!


I wash my strap and TICKR X in the shower with nothing but water after a Ride/Work out!
