ANT Support: Another relatively obvious one, the vast majority of power meters on the market today transmit via ANT to compatible had units.
This allows you to use one of dozens of different head units out there.
The reason being that unlike a bike computer that works on just about every bike on the planet, power meters actually have more limitations than you might think. As you can see above, we’ve got five main areas we see power meters placed today: There are tangential products on other areas of the bike (like handlebars), but none of those currently on the market actually have strain gauges in them.
Thus they are more estimations (albeit some highly accurate) than actual force measurement devices.
For example, Cateye is simply 4iiii, and FSA is simply Power2Max re-branded.
Now that we’ve covered where each unit goes, let’s talk about the features that the power meters on the market have today: Total Power (Watts): This is the obvious one – every power meter has this today (even estimated ones! This is simply measuring and transmitting your total power output to a head unit of some type.
Note that all bottom-bracket power meters are left-only power. Estimated Left/Right Power: This became all the rage just prior to true left/right units coming out, starting with the SRAM/Quarq RED unit offering left/right power. Note that even with true left/right power (below), there’s actually very little in the scientific community around what to do with the data.Once again, it’s time for the annual power meter buyer’s guide.While the last month hasn’t seen a ton of new power meters, if you take the entire year in review, you’ll see it’s been quite busy with not only new players – but also totally new methods of buying a power meter…such as subscription based power meters.That person should be asking you your specific use case, bike placement limitations, and how much you want to spend.The cycling market has many unique use cases and thus you’ll need to take into consideration your specific requirements.
