Soleus has been making running watches and training equipment (heart rate monitors, GPS watches, etc) for a while, collaborating with Nike at times.
Now, they’re bringing their technology to cycling with a full featured and impressively priced GPS computer. The Soleus GPS Draft bundles current/avg/max speed, auto-lap detection, calories burned calculator, 1/100s chronograph, 5 programmable alarms, auto calendar, 30 ride file storage and EL backlight with night mode, and more into a water-resistant package.
While it won’t show your location on a map, it does track your route for display later. When you’re done, pop it in the included USB data upload/charging cable and it’ll send your data straight to Strava (via their included software). All that for just $99.
But wait, there’s more…
They’re even partnering with Bar Fly to offer an optional bundled out-front mount. Greg Hillson of Bar Fly told us he’s been testing one for the past couple months and has been pretty pleased with the computer. Pics are small, but here’s what it’ll look like:
The Soleus GPS Draft should be available in mid-April.
