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).
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.
