Take your biking to the next level with our great selection of Cycling Computers, Heart Rate Monitors & Sports Watches available at BikeExchange. For help in selecting a cycling computer, heart rate monitor or sports watch that best suits your needs, see below for more information.
Modern bike electronics are a great addition to any cyclist's kit. Computers can help you track your time and distance, while sports watches and fitness trackers paired with smartphone apps can help you time your route and maintain your fitness goals. Heart-rate monitors allow you to track and assess the health benefits of your riding.
Cycling computers give us a wealth of real-time information that can include everything from the basics of speed and distance through to more detailed information such gradient percentage, heart rate, temperature, cadence, calories burned, map charting, power output and much more. Many modern computers can also sync your ride data to popular online applications such as Strava and Map My Ride. Depending on the type of cycling computer, they will either require and/or include magnetic or GPS sensors to deliver data to the rider. Magnetic sensors will have either wired or wireless data transmission capabilities, while GPS sensors feature wireless design only. Cycling computers are compatible with a large range of accessories and can range in price with more expensive models typically offering fully-customisable screens along with more robust data features and options.
Sports Watches and Fitness Trackers are a fantastic alternative to having a dedicated cycling computer. In addition to basic daily tracking of steps, & calories burned, sports watches and fitness trackers will often feature cycling tracking along with different sports such as running, swimming, golf and general fitness. More cycle-focussed sports watches go as far to offer bike modes and handlebar mounts. So if cycling isn’t your main sport, or you just want to keep on track with your fitness goals, BikeExchange is sure to have a sports watch or fitness tracker to suit your needs.
Heart rate monitors provide another level of information when paired with your cycling computer, smartphone, or sports watch. Usually pairing via Bluetooth or ANT+, getting up and running is simple making heart rate monitors an easy way to help you manage your performance and training load on, or off the bike. Looking to the latest crop of GPS-enabled cycling computers, such as those from Garmin, Polar and Magellan, many offer heart rate monitoring as an included feature.
