The Velo 9 is an excellent quality entry-level computer with all the basic functions and then some. This updated model features a large screen and convenient single button operation. New features like calorie consumption and carbon offset measurement to help you track how much of a difference you are making. Programmed tire sizes make set up a snap. Black.
Strengths: Screen is large; has current, average, and max speed measurement, trip distance, elapsed time, odometer, calorie consumption and a carbon offset measurement. Current speed appears at the top in big numbers. Pace arrow tells you if you are cycling below, above or equal your average speed. Personally, the pace arrow makes it fun to cycle as I always try to outdo my average speed. Velo 9 is also easy to set up in terms of choosing your time, tire size. And it's pretty cheap, bought it around Php750.00 in the Philippines.
Weaknesses: No pedal cadence. If you want this feature, you have to go at least with a Cateye Strada Cadence and pay extra. Also, I don't find much use for calorie consumption and carbon offset measurement. Can Cateye perhaps get rid of calorie consumption and carbon offset and replace them instead with cadence?
This is an almost perfect computer except if you are looking for pedal cadence. This is primarily for more serious cyclists. If you're only for the recreation side, as I am, then this computer will be more than enough.
