Cycling Computers and Multisport Watches
Why get a cycling computer or multisport watch? If you're looking for a way to track data and improve performance, today's computers and wearables provide a wealth of feedback that'll help you take your riding to the next level. How to know which system is right for you? Read on for our tech tips.
If you're just starting out, too much data can be overwhelming. An entry-level setup lets you stick to basic numbers like time, speed, and distance. Today's computers and wearables often come with GPS or GLONASS to track your route and break down the miles covered, using data from a wired or wireless sensor attached to your wheel, or through movement analysis if you're wearing a watch. Most of these sync via Bluetooth or a cable transfer with your phone or personal computer, letting you upload your data to an app like Map My Ride or Ride With GPS, download new routes, or analyze your riding over time.
For more detailed analysis, look for a unit with ANT+ capability. These computers and watches connect to ANT+ sensors, gathering data such as cadence, VO2 max, heart rate, and power. If you're bikepacking, trail running, or exploring new routes to familiar destinations, look for a computer with the ability to download map packages, use turn by turn navigation, and compare your data to others via ride segments. You'll gain the ability to see where you are and get directions, and the option to chase personal bests or compete with friends on apps like Strava.
