Smart design meets professional data: the PowerControl 8 bicycle computer by SRM
With the PC8 SRM offers a device that is focused entirely on the needs of athletes, and foregoes gimmicks. In addition to common values such as power, heart rate, speed, etc. - the Training Peaks metrics are calculated, and the values are displayed. Also, location and content of the various data fields on the display is configurable. Of course, the PC8 also has GPS (for recording) and is controlled by a light sensor backlight. Since many riders have several bikes with power meters, the PC8 supports up to four different bicycle profiles. Selecting the profile for the respective bike prior to departure eliminates the previously required pairing with the power meter. Charging and data transfer is accomplished using a magnetic plug.
