Road bikes are governed by their laws. These laws are not fixed, but change over time. One such issue is the use of this type of bicycle is tire equipment.

Many sport people say: no matter with what device you start with, but you finish with Garmin. And I think it’s true. Last time I decided to replaced my phone by sport tracking device.

TL;DR: No, it isn’t ideal device, but much better than using phone or strange and complicated software for Android.
