We’re excited to introduce the latest addition to our hardware family: Sports Tracker Speed & Cadence Sensor, a useful device for cyclists who want to learn to ride like a pro.
What the word cadence refers to is the number of pedal rotations per minute (RPM). The higher the cadence, the faster you’re pedaling. Why is it good to know your cadence then? Two words: training economy.
Especially beginners tend to pedal with high gear and low cadence, which requires lots of effort and is hard on muscles, knees and the Achilles tendon, increasing muscular fatigue and the risk of repetitive strain injuries. Using a cadence sensor allows you to adjust the pedaling speed to the optimal level of 80-110 RPM, where riding is easier and more efficient.
Sports Tracker Speed & Cadence Sensor is compatible with iPhone models 4S/5/5C/5S (Android support coming up in summer 2014) and can be used simultaneously with our heart rate monitors. Get yours now from our online shop and remember to update your Sports Tracker app to the latest version 1.8.19.
