Computer question?

Hey folks:
Ok I am not quite over 50 yet, (48) so maybe dont qualify here, but then we need to let my body know too. It is a back to health thing for me, must ride or choose some other endurance sport, thats what Doc says... PERIOD!
Ok so I choose to do what I loved way back when, and so far have been enjoying the daily ride, building up slow and all. But now my questions begin, and it is of course me wanting more than what is available in the market. I have a Cateye Speed odo thing, and am doing all my logging manually. I am not getting data though for heart rate, Oxygen levels, Blood sugar (not really necessary as I do that for and aft) plus my speed top, average, and cadence values. So? Do they make an all in one master health cycling computer? that does do heart, oxygen and etc? combined with the mechanical stuff including cadence?
Just curious really.
And if I am too young for this group please just kick me out.
Tim

Don't know if they do EVERYTHING you want, but check out Polar computers.

Thank you for such a quick reply Denver Fox
Montrose here, and it looks like Polar might have what I need, minus the Blood Ox part.

In my checking around for blood ox (for a different purpose) I find those babies pretty expensive, especially the probe.

Thank you Dnvr
Yeah I am too, so far only independant monitors starting at $229 and then go way up. Probably too soon for that part to be implemented in what I am wanting.
I can get by with out it I guess, but am supposed to watch it in the higher altitudes, so might have to get one of the single units for that. I am hoping to try for Monarch next spring, and will of course have to get something then, ... yeah I do ask too much LOL
