Another great Cateye product let down by inadequate instructions

The Cateye Velo 8's that my wife and I have used for the last 6 years have been faultless and simple to use so a wireless version was a logical choice for our new bikes. I looked at Strada, Padrone and similar models because of their larger displays and sleek design but they lacked the calorie function and screen backlight function of the Velo Plus VT235W model. I have marked it down for performance simply because it was such a pain to set up the tyre size. Once the bike shop had shown me what to do it was a doddle but the process was not shown correctly in the instructions. NB that the calorie function of a similar model was described in a road.cc review as rudimentary and this is borne out by comparison to a friend's more sophisticated computer. E.g. Velo 8 under-reading by 50% so if that's important to you go for more sophisticated (and pricier) GPS models.

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.
