There’s a reassuring air of solidity about the Targa, perhaps because it was originally designed for off-road riding. All the usual heart rate features are augmented by calorie counting and altitude functions, and it comes with a wrist strap, making it handy off the bike too. Most heart rate computers use CR2032 batteries, but this has a CR2450 – for longer battery life.
It’s a shame it doesn’t come with a cadence function as standard, but for its toughness, ease of setup and use and its all-round quality, the Targa proved very popular with our testers.
