The V100HR WL2X combines the functions of a cycling computer with the HR features in a fitness monitor. It offers 21 functions including Vettas exclusive special features Timer, Dual Bike Memory, multiple Freeze Frame Memory. This is triple wireless with speed, cadence and the heart rate.

Bottom Line:   
I am a new rider and my goal is fitness. It has been six months since I started and am now enjoying the ride. But, since I'm very technical, I like equipment that can provide me with teh kind of information (heart rate, speed, cadence, time etc.) and especially the summaries and averages that are available with the Vetta computer.
I have only had this thing out three times and so far, it has been a problem on 100% of my rides with it.
Installation - pretty easy, the instructions could be better but the diagrams are helpful and it is obvious (to an engineer) how to set it up. I also very much appreciate the test feature build into the sensors - they sing when you have the alignment within tolerance - actually they make a little beep sound each time the magnet psses).
Navigation through the two-tiered system is not bad once you get used to it, but functionality withing the screens is poorly documented and I required trial-and-error methods to get things started (and I have been programming and using computers for 30 years). I still don't know how to do several important things because I haven't had it working long enough to experience it all.
Here's the problem list:
After 1 ride, the speed sensor battery went dead. For the second ride, I had to replace it with the cadence sensor battery. For the third ride, it was just a clock - not useful at all without sensors - no surprise there.
Secondly, visibility is not good. I had my old computer on teh handlebars whiel testing teh Vetta and I had not trouble seeing the display at all (just the clock) but the Vetta screen was noticeably darker and I had to stop and make sure there was sunlight directly on screen to read theVetta, not so with the other.
Also, teh data on screen is so small, except for speed and a couple of others on the top half, I have to stop and put on glasses to read the heart rate etc. It's okay after the ride to review the data but it woudl be a lot more useful if you could see it in the shade, wearing sunglasses while pedaling your ass off - but that's not possible, at least not for me.
Last, but not least.: I have attempted to contact them to return/repair/replace or otherwise correct this situation (a computer that is non-functional because the sensor batteries last only a few hours) and have not heard anything from them.
SO, all in all, my $60 computer works better, lasts longer and is visible to me while the Vetta fails on all three counts. The old one doesn't have a heart rate monitor in it, so I guess Vetta wins.
Yes, it's a real winner.
