If you were among those who pre-ordered Watteam’s Powerbeat stick-on/bolt-on power meters, the first batch is about to ship. If you weren’t, too bad, they’ll all sold out. But, you’ll be able to get in on the second pre-order opening up December 10th for the next production round, and they’re hoping that’ll be the batch that’s going to work on carbon crank arms.
Watteam’s production manager Omri Zerach says production of the first round is underway and should deliver by year’s end. The second round is planned for shipping in March 2016…
The kit will come with everything you need to install it, including measuring devices to get the stick-on strain gauges positioned properly, charging kit, etc. The first and second production runs are both earmarked exclusively for the U.S. market for now, letting them focus support efforts before expanding sales internationally.
