Cadence sensor
Author Last Post
I recently switched to a power meter and have my Garmin cadence/speed sensor available if you are interested.  (From my 910XT set)
Cheers.

You might just want to go for it and get the Garmin Pedals.
Then you'd have power as well.
If you have a Garmin watch, your HR will show on the Garmin Bike Computer you'll have to buy.  It's a pricey sport.  Training on the bike with power is most advantageous.

  View/reply online       Reply to forum at discussion@ggtc-talk.org As far as I know, Strava doesn't directly support measurement from your sensors, yet.

They could do that through ANT+, but they are waiting for BTLE.

If you want to get your cadence, power, etc into Strava, they you should upload from a Garmin or other cycle computer type device that can connect to your sensors.

Most cycle sensors are ANT+ based. There are starting to be some BTLE ones available, particularly HRMs.

FYI, you can get an ANT+ dongle for iOS devices, and some Android devices have built in support for ANT+, particularly Samsung and Sony; but your app still has to be designed to pick up the information from the ANT+ interface, and the guys at Strava have made it pretty clear that they don't ever intend to support ANT+.

I've seen a couple of announcements for combo sensors that support both ANT+ and BTLE, but these are still relatively rare. Eventually, there will be more BTLE sensors, and eventually people will swap out their existing sensors for BTLE ones, but that's going to take a while.

hth, if you want more details, let me know.

cheers,

Peter

 Hi all

im finally looking into buying a cadence sensor but need some help.

1st I'm looking for a sensor that will connect to strava via my cell phone guessing Bluetooth ? 

2nd I would like it to be able to connect to my Garmin heart rate. 

Any recommendations? 

Thanks
