Fit & WEll - WATTBIKE ATOM NEXT GENERATION REVIEW
“The Wattbike boasts exceptional build quality and an array of smart features. Chief amongst these is seamless connectivity to virtual training apps like Zwift and TrainerRoad, which automatically control the resistance as you race through real life cycling trials. Another clever tool is the Pedal Effectiveness Score, which tells you how well your pedalling is balanced between your left and right legs.
“Obviously, for many people this is way over the top, but those looking to really push themselves to the limits will love the Wattbike Atom. It's a very serious bit of kit.”
“As a training tool, I see plenty of merit in owning a Wattbike Atom. The standalone nature of the system makes for a very easy get-on-and-go smart bike. I definitely prefer not to have to set up a bike prior to every ride, and the Atom is factory calibrated meaning you don't even have to worry about that.
“By improving the responsiveness, it's now back in line with the ride quality of today's best turbo trainers and competitor smart bikes and makes for more accurate and productive training sessions.”

“The Wattbike Atom is made for stress-free connected training and that’s exactly what you get. It worked seamlessly with apps and other devices I paired it up with. The improvements to inject a more realistic ride clearly paid off here too. If you’ve got space in the pain cave for it and already own a display to show off the software, the next-generation Wattbike Atom is well worth the money to smarten up those indoor rides.”
