The 5 best bike computers and cycling watches for 2014 have been named recently by the test staff at the Heart Rate Watch Company.
"Every year we take a look at what is new on the landscape for bike computers and cycling watches and vote for our top rated products based upon testing and specifications evaluation", says Rusty Squire, President of the Heart Rate Watch Company. He adds, "Cycling watches offer the versatility for uses other than on the bike, so we included several in our list that we feel represent the cream of the crop".
#1 - Garmin Edge 1000 - Edge 1000 is thinner, lighter, higher screen resolution and has the ability to screen texts and phone calls. These are just a few of the new features that the Garmin Edge 1000 brings to the table, along with turn-by-turn directions on a large, full color screen. "The new handlebar mounted remote control is killer because you never have to take your hands off the handlebars to change screens", says Squire.
#2 - Polar V650 - This new touchscreen, color GPS bike computer from Polar is Polar's answer to the Garmin Edge 510 and a good one at that. "The thing we really like about Polar is the advanced heart rate based training features and smart coaching", says Squire.
#3 - Garmin fenix 2 - a GPS watch with advanced cycling capabilities, a barometric altimeter, trackback navigation, along with the ability to interface with cadence sensors and power meters", says Squire. He adds, "For mountain and road biking this watch is just plain awesome and it has 12 hour plus battery life".
#4 - Polar V800- the Polar V800 is the best new triathlon watch on the market for 2014 but it contains all the advanced cycling features you could ever want, including Bluetooth Smart so you can transfer data directly to your Smartphone. "Polar has some new Bluetooth speed and cadence sensors that you will need", says Squire.
#5 - Polar RC3 GPS Bike - This watch is a real value play in cycling watches at around $250 plus it includes watch bike mount hardware, a cadence sensor and the GPS watch. "If you don't have a big budget to platy with than this watch is a great call as a cycling watch, heart rate monitor and running watch all rolled into one", says Squire.
