sigma-bc-1909-hr-bike-compSigma has unveiled their new BC 1909 HR bicycle computer that has a ton of features packed into a small unit at a small price (considering…).

The new computer offers everything you’d need for general fitness and geekiness: Heart Rate (with current, average and max pulse!), Current and Average Speed, Current and Average Cadence, Distance, Calories Burned and even Current Temperature.

You can program it to have HR zones and alarms to help whip you into shape and all of the data remains during a battery change.  No more recalibration and work just to change the battery.  Nice touch, and about time Solid State technology made it’s way to “basic” bicycle computers.  Oh, and the battery itself provides a claimed 3x the life of what’s normally found in bike computers.  Finally, there’s a low-battery indicator for both the computer and transmitter battery.

It’s wireless, but you can get a wired set up if you’re a retro-grouch, and there’s an optional $20 dock to sync it with your computer so you can track your performance.

All this is yours for $109.99 and it’s available pretty much now. Mac version of the software will be available in Spring 2010, and we can’t wait.

you got the cheap part right. the attachments to get the sensors and head unit on the bike are junk. you will be disappointed and wish you had bought something else.

save your money and buy a cateye v3 or polar cs 200.

Cheap attachment because of the rubber O rings? I have four Sigma computers on various road and mtb and have had no problems with the mounting system in thousands of miles of use. Much easier to install than a Cateye (and I’ve had several of those also) and have stayed rock solid on all the bikes. My wife has a Sigma heart rate monitor that has served her well for 4 years. Great, reliable computers.

I’m looking forward to getting mine, I bought a BC 2006 but one of the little rivets on the battery compartement was unfortunately broken and I took it back. The nice guys at Jupiter Cykler called the grocer and they told me if I was willing to wait, I’d get this new version at no extra cost (already paid 150USD for this one anyway, stupid european taxes)

Is there more information on Mac compatibility? Is Sigma rolling out a complete data centre suite for the whole range?
