Pioneer Cyclocomputer Runs Android

—The Pioneer Cyclocomputer is the first cycling computer that runs Android, graphics and an app integration.

“This device is mainly for road bikes and other sports bikes. It can calculate speed, cadence, heart rate, and power. This cyclocomputer supports the ANT+ wireless specification. In addition, Pioneer has now developed a sensor for attachment to the crank, called a pedaling monitor. This measures the force on the crank, so users can train while looking at the force vectors for their left and right feet”, says Pioneer

  

“Because this cyclocomputer has GPS, we think navigation will be a key feature. Pioneer offers a variety of navigation capabilities, so we’d like to add applications that include those kinds of technology. Also, this device is designed for bicycles only, but we think the platform itself could have a diverse range of applications.”
