RPM Cadence Sensor displays data to popular cycling apps
Wahoo Fitness has announced the release of its RPM Cadence Sensor, a Bluetooth-powered device that wireless tracks cycling cadence. Its installation is without magnets, allowing the RPM to attach to any bicycle and instantly display cadence data through popular cycling apps such as Strava and MayMyRide. Featuring LED lights, an active wireless connection is signified by flashing, so as to ensure data is being logged while riding.
The RPM Cadence Sensor does not require charging, as it runs on one coin cell battery for up to two years. Compatible with iPhone 4s or later and iPad (third-generation or later), the RPM Cadence Sensor is now available for $50 online from Wahoo Fitness.
Knowmyapp site estimates app's data usage
Launched last week, CTIA's Knowmyapp.org is the first site of its kind to estimate an app's data usage prior to downloading. This service can assist those with limited data on their wireless contracts, and provide greater control over how one manages their data.
KnowMyApp generates app information by testing against a benchmark that taps into AT&T's Application Resource Optimizer, a diagnostic system that tracks network data. The site is presently limited to the top 50 free and paid apps on Apple's iOS App Store or the Google Play Android app store.
