Our review

Lots of functions and few niggles for the price
Skip to view product specifications

When buying cycling kit, it’s easy to get drawn in by the bigger names, but we wanted to see how a cheap bike computer from Argos would fare against some more well known competition.

Functionally, this sub-£10 computer works well. The screen has decent contrast, making it easy to read at a glance. Even the small function icons are readable on the go. Costs have clearly been saved with the build quality.

The mounting bracket doesn’t feel especially sturdy and the screen scratches easily, even without us having rested the bike on its bars or saddle.

The wheel sensor didn’t fit well on our bladed fork legs and didn’t come supplied with rubber spacers. When you consider its low price though, this is certainly forgivable – you could also easily make a spacer from a section of old inner tube.
