Hello all -

The guy I ride with was really wanting to get a Garmin 705 but him and his wife talked back and forth and they can't agree on it :) He asked me if there are any computers (for less than $200??) that have the following:

(1) Cadence
(2) HR
(3) Altimeter

and he hasn't specified, but I imagine...

(4) Wireless

My experience is exclusively with CatEye - I have the Strada Cadence, wired, and the Strada Double Wireless. I also have a Sigma Sport heart rate watch/chest strap. I've played around with Garmins and really like the specs/features of the 705 - I'd probably pay the $400 for it but obviously his wife wouldn't ;)

If anyone has any advice, or actually knows of a cyclocomputer that fits at least the sub-$200 pricing requirement and at least the first three required features (and hopefully the fourth), please let me know :)

Happy riding! (not code - or maybe it is code)

I put a Cateye V3 on my wife's bike and she really likes it.

It has the features you're looking for...except it does not have the altimeter.

Bought it for less than $200.

CatEye V3 would be the closest fit to your specs, less the Altimeter.

Thanks guys :) My buddy was searching last night and he mentioned he found the Sigma Sport ROX 9.0 during his search, and it supposedly has all of those features. I haven't had the time yet to look it up - I'll take a look at it in a few hours and post again :)
