Strengths:    See my previous review

Weaknesses:    Al mentioned in my previous review + bad weather insulation

Bottom Line:   
Seems like no one used Specialized for now. This is the update to my previous review to mention one significant problem discovered recently. After a long night wet ride it just stopped functioning - display frozen at zero without reaction to speed change. I realigned the magnet right on the street - no effect. OK, I thought, let's deal with it at home. At home I discovered that the jacket connecting the sensor with the device itself is absolutely wet inside. Have had to dry it with a hair dryer and it began to work fine as usual. For sure, this is not a problem - you can insulate this stupid connection even with a piece of chewing gum... But why should I think about it, when it is said that the device is weather resistant? How about connections?

Strengths:    Good combination of analog and digital display, much of information available at a glance, all the functions needed are here, good design.

Weaknesses:    No mounting options (riser or handlebar), no detacheable mount, analog display can only give an approximation, no accurate reading, no interchangeable bezels for MPH/KMH. Seems to be overpriced.

Bottom Line:   
Good computer, but way too revolutionary in terms of ergonomics. With no mounting options and without the option to detach it this one surely attracts attention, which is not alvays good. The best thing to love in this gadget is analogue display which allows you to scan lots of info at a single glance.
