Wahoo Elemnt Roam Review: a great companion for off-beat adventures

With its chunky buttons, high contrast colour screen and extremely simple operating system, the Wahoo Elemnt Roam seems to have been created for gloved hands. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
The full colour screen steps things up from Wahoo's Bolt, providing clear turn-by-turn directions. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
The oversized rubber buttons make the Roam easier to operate in cold conditions - or with gloved hands - although we did miss a touchscreen in some cases. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
On top of decent navigation, the Roam also offers pretty much every conceivable cycling stat known to man. Pair it with external sensors and the data is rich. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
The Gorilla Glass screen is built tough, it is weatherproof and Wahoo has added a bevelled edge to the screen for extra durability. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
Wahoo has added a row of lights to the top and left side of the screen. The ones on the left can be customised to display power, heart rate or speed. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
The Wahoo Elemnt Roam doesn't quite go into the depth that a Garmin computer might but it's great for nav and easy to use. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
