Advantages of Real Cycling Computers
As convenient as a smartphone is, there are many good arguments for having a "real" bike computer, especially for demanding users. This is especially true if you are riding in windy and stormy weather or on rough terrain: smartphones are usually less durable than specialised bike computers and replacing them is often not only expensive, but also very time-consuming in terms of transferring your data. In addition, smartphones require considerably more energy than cycling computers and often reach their limits in functions such as power measurement. We therefore rather recommend using smartphones to occasional users in casual, everyday life.
