Is there a computer with wireless cadence?(5 posts)

Is there a computer with wireless cadence?KLM

I've got the Shimano unit with "virtual" cadence and it's great, but I'm looking for a computer that has a wireless sensor for cadence. Will this even work considering the distance the signal would have to travel?

Allegedly the high end Specialized (Speedzone Pro) have wireless cadence. Check their site

The Specialzed Speedzone Pro appeared on their web site in October with an availability date of December. I've watched it each month creep 1 month at a time into the future.

It's currently showing May 2002.

The advertised features list two pieces of innovation (for Specialized anyway)
1) Wireless Cadence
2) Digital Signal

I'm beginning to think that they can't get them to work.

Anyone have any inside scope on this thing.

The Polar S710 has wireless cadence and I think several others do also.

A word oc caution about wireless anything - there is a greater chance of interference from other electronic sources. My wireless cadence and speed won't work consistently when I use a GPS or a Light & Motion Arc headlight on the handlebars.

Timex makes a model with special FM frequency that doesn't get interference. Unfortunately, it's functions are limited. You'd expect other engineers to pick up on this shortcoming & correct at some point, as cost wouldn't seem to be a big factor as the Timex is pretty reasonably pricded.
