Id argue the reverse is true. If you are not happy with trying to get your smartphone to function like a dedicated GPS cycling computer, youd be happy with a unit dedicated to the purpose. Lots of stuff out there, Garmin, Wahoo, Lezyne that are do in one device, with an OS dedicated to the purpose, what you often have to cobble together on a phone.
