I had a Mavic Wintech wireless HR. Loved it except for the fact that sometimes the pickup gets messed up and begins to tally way to many miles on. I am going to go with a Sigma wired cadence computer next. Heart rate is nice but I would rather have cadence since I need to work on that and I need the reliability that wired has.

Don't purchase this unit

My unit leaked after 2 months and mavic will not honor warranty through dealer saying it got "wet". Of course it did, it was raining. You can't deal direclty with Mavic. No real weight savings once you add cadence unit. No average cadence. Instructions are difficult to read. Altimeter is not accurate. Screen layout is difficult to manipulate. Go with someone that knows computers (cateye, garmin, etc).
