The HAC4 by Ciclosport that I have had for 3 years calculates the grade %, and in the computer printout, also calculates your ascent/decent rate, ft.per.min., your power output, watts. Works good, no complaints. The altimeter printout is nice, gives you a nice printout of your ride profile. It's good for estimating your fitness level by comparing speed to heart rate over a given course.
