The nice FEDEX man has just left me with a package and a smile as WATTEAM’s POWERBEAT finally arrived.
POWERBEAT is now shipping and available at PowerMeterCity and from the Amazon links below if you are buying in Europe.
Obviously I have a review planned but what stands out is the novel location, dual-sided stats and the dual-protocols supported (ANT+ and Bluetooth LE).
A key factor too is the price with the power meter coming in at below GBP/$500. This is attractive for a dual-sided option and even more attractive with a 10% discount from PowerMeterCity with the code the5krunner10 (if outside US please check import charges+shipping). Many thanks in advance if you buy through this link and support this site.
We shall have to see how accurate it is and how usable and durable. The only stand-out negative factor is that the device cannot easily be swapped between bikes. Then again…look at the price.
More to follow.
