Is there a bike with built-in computer sensor for heart rate, calorie burn, distance, average speed etc?

I would like to buy a good touring bicycle available with sensors similar to those on some exercise bikes that pick up your pulse from the hand-held grips, give you feedback on your heart rate, the calories you have burned, the distance you have covered and your average speed. Alternatively, is there a good quality and easy to fit add-on to my bicycle, perhaps one that includes satellite navigation?

    Unfortunately there are no bikes or wheels with built in sensors. The reason is that everyone likes something different when it comes to this. There are so many aftermarket computers to track mileage, speed, etc. that it may take you a while to figure out exactly what you need. Computers from Cateye are great and offer a full range of cycling measurement. Polar brand adds heart rate monitoring and other measurements of your bodies performance. They tend to be more expensive. There are no integrated GPSs yet. But i'd imagine they are coming down the road.

    My personal preference is toward wireless computers. They are easy to install and don't clutter your bike with more wires.

    you have distinctive ideas consistent with how lots you desire to spend. you will get a trouble-free coronary heart fee demonstrate screen for $30. i've got used a Polar CS200 ($one hundred fifty), which had all the useful properties you suggested, minus the satellite tv for pc Navigation. The Garmin 305 has all the useful properties, including satellite tv for pc Navigation, yet they run approximately $350. All of those ideas will paintings with any motorcycle. generally the sensors are geared up right into a band you place on around your chest. you may verify on the quantity you're prepared to spend, and the useful properties you desire, and take your motorcycle to the motorcycle keep. they may assist you with finding the right kind and could installation it for you.
