Echo Now Supported on Android!
We’re excited to announce that Android support is now available for Echo. If you have an Android smartphone that meets the minimum requirements, you can now see real-time metrics from the Wahoo Fitness app and control your music on Echo.
Minimum Smartphone requirements:
- Android 4.4 or later operating system
- Bluetooth 4.0
Today, Echo works with the Wahoo Fitness app on Android. If you know the Wahoo Fitness app, you know that it’s extremely powerful and customizable, and the integration with Echo continues on that promise. With the app, you can customize Echo data screens to show the metrics of your choice. You can even customize the button functions. If you like the start/stop function on the bottom-right button, you can do it. Everything is configurable to your liking, even your uploads. You can send your data to the service of your choice (including: Magellan Active, Strava, MapMyRun, RunKeeper, Nike+ and many more). We’re already working with other app partners and we’re excited to announce their Android support as it becomes available.
