App / computer

Are any of y’all using a bicycle computer or app that functions like a bicycle computer?

What do you have?
What do you want?
Which one sucks?
Which one rocks?
Etc.

I prefer a dedicated/stand alone device. Simpler is better too unless you are a tri-athlete or velo racer

Bontrager 100 on my go to ride at the moment. No real attraction to it other than I bought it local for cheap. It's been good to me, easy on batteries (seems I've made it 5k mi on a set), has the essential functions, good size display.

A lot of the ebay/Chinese ones are probably good too at a fraction of the cost.

I use a Suunto Ambit 3. Use it for pedal and moto biking. Also skiing and hiking.

i use my garmin 820 linked to Strava. that app works really well... i also have ridewithgps app for my road bikes.

garmin connect also allows stat tracking and connecting with friends. i prefer the other apps over connect.
