I'm back to commuting after a five year hiatus. As such, the old Catseye mph cyclocomputer is a bit aged. I have, however been recording my rides via MapMyRide and my iPhone 4s, which has been nice, except the MMR calorie estimation seems WAY too high. I think I need to invest in a few things. A heart rate monitor and something better to track MPH and perhaps cadence and/or watts?
My questions are as follow:
1. What should I purchase first, HRM? Cadence? The big reason for the upgrades to better track my calories. I am trying to lose weight.
2. My budget is $200.00 a month in this effort.
3. Getting as much integrated onto the iPhone is preferable as I do not want to have to sync devices to a computer and I really like the wireless sync to websites like map my ride.
I appreciate and look forward to your ideas.
