We try out the new CatEye Stealth 50 bike computer

Cateye’s Stealth unit is barely bigger than a standard wireless computer but both the £79.99 Stealth 10 and £99.99 Stealth 50 have a GPS sensor with a programmable log rate of one, two or five seconds to tune accuracy and battery life. The 50 is also ANT+ enabled to pull data from heart-rate belts and power, cadence and speed sensors.

The GPS speed data is impressively accurate and sensor syncing is easy too. The totally sealed unit uses a dock to connect to your PC, where the functional but basic CateyeAtlas site lets you upload rides onto a map or straight onto Facebook, Strava or Training Logs for post-ride analysis.

There’s no programmable screen option so the top line is always current speed – irritating if you want to display heart rate and timer together. The power button on the back is a neat idea to stop accidental presses, but can be a pain for pre-ride resets. We also had problems with Mac compatibility in the UK, although we’re assured it works fine in the US and Japan.

Verdict


Simple to use, weatherproof and relatively inexpensive
