Here’s a modern-day bike speedometer and odometer that measures various speed measurements (max speed, average speed, traffic speed), distance, clock and running time, then displays it in fully digital LCD display with a backlight that can be set in either green or white color. It’s definitely more than just another bike accessory. It keeps records of minimum and maximum speeds, and more besides. It is wireless and waterproof, made of a durable and convenient form factor, and runs on a 12V/CR2032 battery (included) in an 83gram apparatus measuring 56mm x 41mm x 20mm.
Not a Speedometer, a Bike Computer
Ranaico markets this unit as a bike computer (in a way you might refer to your iWatch or Fitbit as a wrist computer) that goes above and beyond what one would normally buy it for– as a speedometer with all the perks. And it’s right, because it does a lot of things with flair.
This device may not make your bike into a cousin of Optimus Prime, but it’s among the closest you can get to a data-driven bikeriding bliss of an experience.
Essentially it works as advertised, relatively easy to install and operate: The instructions are clear enough that it is worth reading them thoroughly (if quickly) when you get started, so you can set it up in several minutes without too much of a fuss. What’s more, taking the extra time to learn it and set it up is well worth the effort because it is capable of a lot of things and even more capable of making you happier if you took the time out to bring out its ability to shine.
You can also set the computer for the size of your tires using the chart on the kit. Make sure you have your correct tire size info for calibration, and you should be well on your way without the frustration of others who may have been too excited to realize that to get the best of any product like this, you need to set it correctly.
It is wireless, waterproof, easy to set-up while easy to use, and fairly accurate, with most of the options you’d expect and want included. The bright green of the LED monitor allows you to see the display on the road in the dark.
The common downside as reported by a few is that with the volume it moves, there are scattered reports of minor issues (like an insufficient manual or small typefaces and such, which the company has addressed in recent updates). Otherwise, it’s a solid product that users swear by (not at).
This would work great with other tools and accessories like a universal phone mount for your bike, but otherwise with or without additional devices, this adds information, knowledge and a depth not just for a better biking experience, but one that enhances your pleasure and ride overall.
