Strengths:    Very simple one-button operation. Contains the basic features for speed, distance, and clock. Cheap.

Weaknesses:    Lacks average speed and time.

Bottom Line:   
Velo 5 is very simple. It displays speed, trip distance, total distance, and clock, and has a single-button operation. It works great, the speed's accurate, and it's cheap (forgot how much I bought mine, but it's probably around Php600-650 [US$13-15]). The usual price on the net is US$25.
It would he better if it had an average speed and time like the higher models. But if you are on a tight budget, this is good enough and will serve you well.

Strengths:    Simple, inexpensive, works.

Weaknesses:    Wish it displayed average speed. Cateye's magnet doesn't grip the spoke as much as I want, but I guess it's enough.

Bottom Line:   
Seems to do nothing wrong. Very basic and the speed matches my calculations. I haven't used this for so long, but I don't see what's stopping it from lasting.

It's not fancy, and easily caters for someone who wants to know the time, their speed, and their distance. For the price, there's nothing to say bad about it really.

Upgrading the Cateye Velo 5 to Velo 8

Hi all, I now have the Velo 5 and am thinking of upgrading to the Velo 8. I've read up on it and it seems they are both similar models, save for the features (the Velo 8 offers more stats, which is my main reason for upgrading). Since my bike is already wired up for the Velo 5, would it be okay ... Read More »
