BERU Factor 001

BERU's Factor 001 is scheduled to be unveiled next week in the UK, and purportedly has GPS, motorsport-grade sensors and a radio transmitter, which all go back to an on-board computer.

Gizmag says the Factor 001 can collect various bits of info, such as ergonometric, biometric, physical force and environmental data, then take all that and analyze it in ways to help the rider's performance. BERU normally works on F1 components, so the bike was designed entirely in-house by F1 engineers using F1-grade materials.

New Garmin Edge starting at $ 250.00

We are still waiting on the BERU Factor 001 with its built in a computer, but Garmin's new Edge 500 will add GPS and some health monitoring tools to your bicycle in the meantime.

The Edge 500 can track GPS position, speed, distance, time, elevation, climb and descent. It also has a barometric altimeter to pinpoint changes in elevation. Its high-sensitivity GPS receiver with HotFix also allows it to display temperature readings and changes in time zones.

GPS isn't its only game. When paired with a Garmin heart rate monitor it can track micro changes in a user's heart rate and can calculate the number of calories burned. The Edge 500 retails for $250 and $350 with the bundled heart rate monitor. [Garmin]
