Since this whole 'lockdown' thing i've been getting out on my bike much more and i'm really enjoying it and it's something i'd like to keep up.
I currently run Strava on my phone but the battery on it is pretty awful. When i've seen other cyclists who've been on the segments i've been on i see their 'gear' and notice that many of them are using various cycling computers at varying prices. Some really eye-watering prices.
I don't have a budget as such but forget £500 for starters. Let's just say I don't know what needs to be spent to get something decent. I may accept it or i may decide that's too much, i don't know.
I was looking for something that'll track the journey and upload to Strava for starters.
An 'on' display showing various info would be a decent feature. Speed, average speed, duration.
I've taken to getting lost and seeing what happens while getting out on my bike the past couple months so it would be helpful if it also acted as a sat nav of sorts. Not necessarily Google Maps but something. Screen clarity would be pretty important too as i've seen some units that don't really look so great in this area.
Can be battery powered or USB chargeable (if that's even a thing? Would probably be better if that was an option) but a decent battery life is pretty important.
Not really sure where to start.
