    Latest version news: https://support.wahoofitness.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000410550-ELEMNT-BOLT-Firmware-Updates

    I would suggest contacting their support for assistance on updating. It wouldn't be very time efficient for us to try to do it via posts. That said, you can try connecting the bolt to the phone via the app, then using the settings menu on the Bolt to 'Check for Updates' and 'Install Updates', instead of using hte App to trigger it.

    Wahoo manages an excellent support forum on Google. That's the best place for this.

    It says Elemnt but you can discuss all models.

    Responses are quick.

    Make sure you have WiFi enabled (via the settings in the app) otherwise it won't update!
  • ...and make sure if you're using dual-band WiFi that the unit is connecting to your 2.6ghz rather than 5ghz. It won't connect to 5...

    Your version seems to be very old. From the main bolt menu scroll down to the bottom and you should see "system info open". Make sure that there is some free space available. I have 1.3G. It needs space to download the file before updating. If you are low on free space connect to pc and delete logs.
    You can also check for updates and flash from here. If that does not work you can do a factory reset from the same menu and start again.
