    CATEYE STRADA SLIM
    by Anonymous user on 08/07/2020

    An excellent little cycle computer. Very neat to install, and does all I wanted. The fork mounted sensor is especially discrete, tucked away on the inside of the fork. Works well, and appears to be accurate. Thoroughly recommended.

    Seems to work as advertised. My previous Cateye stopped transmitting randomly not long after purchasing which was very frustrating.

    All the familiar CatEye controls and features.
    by Spencer S on 23/06/2020

    Easy and quick to set up using the instruction sheet provided. Once on the bike it has all the features and controls anyone familiar with CatEye products will be used to. I mainly use it as a display of road speed and time as I use Strava for logging data of rides, but it does have two mileage logs which can be used as a trip meter and cumulative distance log if preferred. Also logs top and average speed for trip as well as time taken. Great value this was on offer and available at the time of purchase. When many other suppliers were out of stock due to the pandemic. It arrived on the same day as my new bike and was installed straight away.

    Great Product
    by Anonymous user on 17/06/2020

    This is everything i need on a bike. After all, still running Strava on my back. Bought 3 in less than two years, cos when XC, lifting over fences, i keep losing the unit.

    Not as good as my original
    by Peter H on 15/06/2020

    Functions well and after two rides out is still in place. My original had far better functionality. While in use it would rotate round each output without having to keep pressing the button to go around the menu. A little disappointed but its functional. Unfortunately I lost the pick up sensor for my original or I would still be using it.

    DONT WORK WITH MTB
    by Anonymous user on 06/06/2020

    I have had this on my mountain bike for three weeks and it hasn't worked for more than a mile. Its works when I set off a mile into my ride its packs up. I've replaced battery and magnet and still no joy. I have now took it of the bike.

    Can I pair my cycle computer with a smartphone, power meter and other devices? 

    You will need a wireless computer to sync with other devices. Most wireless computers sync using 2 wireless technologies – ANT+ & Bluetooth Smart.

    ANT+

    ANT+ enabled devices to talk to each other and present the information on a compatible device.

    Bluetooth Smart

    Bluetooth Smart is a low energy wireless technology designed for smart sport and fitness. The long battery life in sensors makes it ideal for regular use in cycling. 

    Always check your smartphone’s OS and 3rd party devices are compatible.

    Would a Watch / Fitness band be better for me?

    If you’re looking for something more versatile then cycle watches are a great alternative. You can still gather data from cycling sensors, but you can also gather data for different sports too. They are great for triathletes and those that do multiple sports. 

    You can easily transfer data from a road bike to a mountain bike, from running to swimming. There aren’t many outdoor exercises you can’t track.

    What software & Apps should I use?

    Strava

    Strava is perhaps the most well-known cycling App / software around. All you need is to record your cycling with a compatible GPS device, upload it to Strava and then you can analyse your data. You can compare your performance to previous efforts, your mates and even pro riders - all of this, for free.

    Garmin Connect

    All Garmin computers and devices will work with Garmin Connect. This is an online service that allows you to analyse your performance data, and share it with your friends. Reports show you how you’re progressing and you can use the calendar feature to plan your training sessions over time.
