About the WATTEAM POWERBEAT Power Meter
Introducing the long awaited WATTEAM POWERBEAT Power Meter! Redefining what a power meter is capable of, the WATTEAM power meter is the first user-installed power meter with features, functionality and accuracy once found only in factory installed units.
The POWERBEAT attaches to the left and right crank arms in a simple, 45-minute procedure requiring only basic technical skills. Once installed and calibrated, the POWERBEAT provides power data that is accurate to within +/- 1.5%. In addition, it provides true left/right power measurement.
At $399, the POWERBEAT power meter is the most affordable, direct force power meter capable of measuring total power (power from both legs), not to mention independent left/right power as well!
The WATTEAM POWERBEAT Power Meter is extremely lightweight at only 18.9 grams per side, features a rechargeable battery with 60-hour life and offers both ANT+ as well as Bluetooth SMART compatibility. This means it can be used with a bicycle computer, smart phone or tablet.
The POWERBEAT is proven to be accurate to within +/- 1.5%, which is as good as some of the best power meters available.
With a sensor on both crank arms, it can provide independent left/right power distribution.
We are all concerned about weight, and the power meter adds a mere 18.9 grams to each crank arm.
At $399, the POWERBEAT Power Meter is the most affordable, direct force power meter with total as well as independent left/right power.
The power meter supports both ANT+ and Bluetooth SMART wireless protocols – which means you can use any device you would like as your head unit.
