LiveRider Bike computer is an iPhone or iPod dock that mounts on the handle of your bike, allowing you to use your Apple device to track various stats that you’re highly concerned during biking, including the elapsed time, distance traveled, cadence speed, watts, pace, calories burned, average and max speeds. You can even get the previous recorded data, having yourself to race against them.
The LiveRider Bike computer comes from the same company that makes Jackpot iPhone Dock. The LiveRider comes with a dual-mode sensor that needs to be mounted on the bike’s rear tire to measure the wheel speed and pedal cadence, and an “aerodynamic shock-absorbing handlebar mounted cradle” with a 2.4 GHz wireless receiver.
Data collected from the wheel will be sent to the wireless receiver. And your iPhone (3G and 3GS) or iPod Touch needs to be plugged into the dock connector to display the various statistics mentioned above. It’s also able to access the GPS data on the iPhone. The recorded data can be exported or emailed so you can have it showing on spreadsheet or imported into database for further analysis. The LiveRider app is free for download from Apple app store but the hardware that needs to be installed on your bike, costs you $100. Hit the “Buy now” button to get yours if you want one!
