Vetta V100HR--please commentSpecialTater

I see mixed reviews in the rbr reviews and no comments on the HR functions. I would love to combine my hrm, computer and add cadence wirelessly (and do so for under $150). Any comments on it? Do you experience any interference?

Thanks

It works fine. Not a lot of HR functions, but just to see current rate, it is fine.

My version requires me to change modes to see HR, change again to see speed and etc... I am not sure about the new models as my version is at least 3 years old.

I would still recommend going with two distinct units. I am in the process of shopping around for the best deal/feature out there for < $100.00.
new ones are better...C-40

I got two of them for $70 each on sale at Performance (the wored model without cadence). The HRM works fine and provides lots more data than some older HRM computers, like Cateye. The only bad data I get is the max. HR. Lots of times it registers 200-215 on rides where I've never noticed exceeding the 180's. If it is correct, it must have been very briefly.

The HR shows all the time on the newer unit, along with speed and distance. The HR numbers are small in the lower left corner and a bit difficult for us old folks to read. I haven't tried the other screens while riding, since I'm more interested in current speed, and I can see the current HR well enough.
