How time has changed. The last head unit I had was the PCV. We
are now on the PC8, and this one has GPS Because it records in Ant+
you can use other PM's. I used mine to record a loaner bike with a
Quarq, and also even on my Kickr
It is meant to be getting Bluetooth (which will be a firmware
update) and so currently you need to manually sync it to your
Strava/Training Peaks account (unlike Garmin which will do that
But what the PC8 is good at is recording data. It is a tool; the
Garmin is a glorified Sat Nav in comparison (and I have a 520).
The PC8 has a wonderfully clear screen, in landscape format,
with all your key data to hand. Recording intervals is a breeze,
and given the size, in landscape, the data is so clear to read. The
display is just beautifully clear.
You are never in any doubt that this is a tool with which to
record your work. This is not a speedo to potter about with…
It comes in in three main colours - I chose mine in gun metal
grey (other options were black or a snazzy red). It reminds me of a
Rolex Submariner - expensive, but at heart it's a beautifully
engineered work tool. Every time I look at it it makes me smile.
And for £550 that's not such an indulgence at all.
