You can now complete TrainerRoad outside workouts on your Wahoo ELEMNT!
Since releasing the ability to push outside workouts to Garmin head units, we’ve had tons of requests to do the same for Wahoo ELEMNT head units. We’re very excited to say that is now possible!
How to Set Up
Since Wahoo is actually pulling these workouts from TrainerRoad, the setup is a bit different than all other integrations offered at TrainerRoad.
- Go to the Profile section of the Wahoo ELEMNT Companion App and select Authorized Apps. To download the latest version of the Companion app on Android click here and for iOS click here. Also make sure your ELEMNT is up to date and connected to wifi.
- Add TrainerRoad as an authorized app. You will be asked to login to TrainerRoad and give Wahoo permission to pull outside workouts.
Scheduling a Workout
Once Wahoo is authorized to pull from TrainerRoad, scheduled outside workouts can be pulled to your Wahoo ELEMNT.
Workouts are “Ready to be pulled for Wahoo” 3 days in advance.
Workouts scheduled more than 3 days in advance will be “Scheduled for Wahoo”, but won’t be available to pull yet.
Starting a Workout
Since Wahoo pulls workouts from TrainerRoad, you’ll need to access the Wahoo ELEMENT Companion App to pull and start outside TrainerRoad Workouts.
Once in the app, select Pick a Planned Workout.
Wahoo will automatically search for, and pull any scheduled outside workouts.
To start a workout, select a planned workout and press Select Workout Plan when your ELEMNT head unit is paired to the app.
The message Plan Loaded will appear on your ELEMNT once the workout has been loaded.
Navigate to the workout screen and you are ready to ride!
Moving Through a Workout
Wahoo allows you to rewind or fast forward to different steps of your workout. This allows you to start your intervals when you are ready, and not just when the timer says to go.
To move to a different interval, press the middle button on your ELEMNT.
Select to either advance or rewind to a prior interval. Press Resume once you are at the interval you wish to start.
