Before smartwatches, cycling computers stored and displayed all your riding data, from distance to pace. They’re still superior when it comes to screen size, but in terms of features, today’s cycling watches far outweigh handlebar-mounted devices.
In addition to basic metrics like speed, responsive sensors pick up on your heart rate, caloric burn, recovery time, movements during activity, and more that are useful for a variety of sports. Some cycling watches will even give you turn-by-turn navigation or send out an alert if you crash. Every added feature is designed to track your fitness and health while also keeping you safe on the road.
Below, you’ll find seven cycling watches at a variety of price points fit for riding on the road or trail. Read on for a breakdown of each watch.
