      My question for the hive is how long do your sensor batteries last? I am running a Wahoo Speed/Cadence sensor that is Bluetooth and ANT+. 3rd battery this year (CR2032) changed out due to sensor not getting picked up after position confirmed and was able to pick it up after the change. What is your experience?

        I swap my batteries out once a year just because (Wahoo TickrX, Speed, and Cadence).

        What brand of batteries are you using?? I tired cheap no-name CR2032’s once and it didn’t work out at all. I now only run fresh Duracell CR2032’s.

        A pack of 6 is $7.75 shipped at Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00411NDT4

        My last batch had 2026 expiration dates.

          The ones I’ve been using were brand new Energizers. Might be time to replace the sensors and go magnet-less.

            I run the wireless/non-magnetic sensors, like these: https://www.wahoofitness.com/devices/bike-sensors/speed-and-cadence-sensors-bundle

            They work great…and the batteries easily go one year.

            Definitely shop around…prices varied widely when I was looking. Good luck!!
