Sigma 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. Ã‚Â No more recalibration and work just to change the battery. Ã‚Â Nice touch, and about time Solid State technology made it’s way to “basic” bicycle computers. Ã‚Â Oh, and the battery itself provides a claimed 3x the life of what’s normally found in bike computers. Ã‚Â 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.
