Cyclometer, satnav, or smartphone holder?
To track your pace, your route, or even your progress, you can use one of the many dedicated apps available. This means you're going to need a smartphone holder on your handlebars. B'TWIN offers a number of models, from the very basic to watertight and more stable versions. Pick the one that suits you best! You could also choose to install a cyclometer on your bike. For a city bike, there's no point going for a high-tech cyclometer (with a heart rate monitor, for example). Instead, go for one that will give you the data you really need (such as speed, distance and time elapsed). Nevertheless, a bike satnav can be really good for helping you find your way around. Mountain bike or road cycling enthusiasts might also want to be able to track their performance. In this case, go for a device that will give you data such as pedalling cadence, heart rate, power and even GPS location. If you're a cyclotourist or cyclosportive rider, this type of device will definitely prove handy one day or another! Generally speaking you should go for a cyclometer with a big screen that gives you information that is quick to read. Don't forget that a cyclometer can be used on several different bikes, so check that it's easy to install. How easy it is to operate, its battery life, and its computer connection are other criteria to check before buying.
