$99.99 GPS, ANT+, 720p bike computer/phone!


(Steve Paltzer) #1

I like my JouleGPS bike computer a lot, but I have been looking into ANT+ enable phones for over two years now, and I finally ordered the Samsung Avant. When it arrives, I will look into finding a cell phone provider and do a follow-up, but initially it will be just a bike computer(once I install Strava or any of the other free Apps). This phone will also come in handy for the Zwift companion App when it is released for android.

Not sure on the battery life, but if GPS is less intensive than playing a video, then I hope to get 7 hours out of it. I might need to charge it daily or every other night. Some Apps will automatically upload a work if a Internet connection is available, so this will stream line my current process.

Looks like the sale is over, and it all the way back up to $199.99!

I am testing the battery life right now! So far I it is consuming a little under 10% every 30 minutes, so I should get over 5 hours of continuous use. The screen is light up, WiFi and GPS are running, and I have a PowerCal paired so it is picking up heart rate, and power via ANT+. I am using the SelfLoops app for this test.
