If you like to ride a bicycle, then you certainly need a cycling computer. After all, you can use it to know your current speed, distance traveled, average speed, maximum speed, trip time and even know your current heart rate and cadence. We live only once, so why not buy a device that will make cycling even more fun and comfortable?
On my bike, I have a simple computer from CatEye, it can show my current heart rate and calories burned among the other useful data except for cadence. However, this computer is already very old. Therefore, I certainly dream of buying a new, modern cycling computer with many modern functions such as a cadence and heart rate and GPS and ability to connect to a smartphone and share my short trips. After all, even a simple cycling computer makes my trip more fun. Then how good would be my trip if I would have a modern feature-rich cycling computer with cadence and heart rate monitoring?
But let’s get back to the topic. Which cycling computer with cadence and heart rate is the best? I conducted another search, in order to find the best cycling computer with cadence and heart rate monitoring. And here are the results.

Unfortunately, our list of the best cycling computer with cadence and heart rate monitoring is completed with just only 2 cycling computers. Why? The thing is that for the time being, manufacturers have not been able to establish the production of good and most importantly reliable cycling computers with cadence and heart rate monitoring. A lot of cycling computers with heart rate and cadence sensor has the rating below 3.5 and customers complain about the reliability of these devices.
Some good bicycle computers, has many useful features, good price, but terrible reliability. I did not include such computers in this rating. Maybe in the 2018 year, someone will release something new and reliable, but for now, there are only 2 of the best cycling computers with cadence and heart rate.
