Originally launched back in 2019, the Elemnt Roam built a reputation for easy to use mapping, straightforward operation and a decent battery life. The second generation version is launched today and features a host of new updates and up to the minute technologies.

The unit itself is virtually the same size as the original Roam, measuring 90 x 60 x 16mm, while the color LCD screen measures 60 x 40mm. Wahoo claim that at 17 hours, it has a very similar battery life as the original model too.

The Roam V2's standout new hardware features include dual band GPS for more accurate positioning on and off-road, a 64-color screen (the original had eight) and 32GB of memory which enables it to store larger and more detailed maps.

New software features include Summit Segments which enables you to study the climbs in advance on pre-loaded routes, Systm Outdoor Workouts aka training rides designed for outdoor use, and Public Route Sharing that allows you to quickly and easily share routes with other riders via the Elemnt smartphone app.

The Roam also syncs with other Wahoo hardware such as the Rival GPS watch, Kikr turbo trainers, heart rate monitors and a new Supersapiens biosensor that analyzes your glucose levels in real time to help optimize your fueling strategies.
