Bluetooth Vaaka cadence sensors

Compatible with any Bluetooth GPS device. Athletes can see their stroke rate data in real time while training on the water.  Post training analysis software can be used to review your cadence data or upload your training files into the FREE Vaaká Analytics software on this website.

Vaaká cadence sensors are lightweight, robust and fully waterproof, immersion tested to 3m for 24 hours. They easily attach to any paddle and sophisticated power saving software means that even with daily use you will only need to change the battery every 1-2 years.
