Action camera that can automatically add data overlay (speed, cadence, pulse etc).

I mean that camera must add that overlay to video it records in real time. I wonder, is there such thing? I know that some cameras equipped with GPS tracker can use it to calculate your speed and project this number into video on an overlay, but GPS tracking is not very accurate, and can't provide anything except position and speed, while I would like also other parameters be displayed. My bike computer has support for ANT in it, so theoretically it can send a lot of very accurate values (cadence, speed, altitude, heart rate etc) to external devices. But are there action cameras which can read such stream, understand it and add those numbers as dynamic overlay to its videos?

Raptor sunglasses have a heads-up display and can record video with speed, power, heart rate etc. as an overlay.
