Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
Cons: not user friendly
Bought this to match my Suunto Quest which I bought from Evans too.
Easy to install. It comes with 3 cable tie, 1 battery and 1 handle bar mount.
Work perfectly fine giving you the reading of speed and distance.
The only issue for me is, in order to activate it, you have to open the cover and take out the battery , short it with other side of the battery and then install it again. Have to do it every time in order to pair with it. The real problem is , you have to take out your front wheel to do this as the battery is facing inside.
The pod itself is very light. When I received my parcel, there is some noise when I shake the pod.. then i realised there were broken/chipped plastic inside the pod. Not too sure broken from which part. Nevertheless it is still functioning.

Good product

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Lightweight
Cons: Uncomfortable
The bike pod is a perfect solutions for Suunto users. It works perfectly with my t6d, there were no issues with pairing. Calibration was easy: I used the table at the end of the manual to match the tyre size, which turned out to be spot on. The potential issue I see is with the straps for fastening the device to the fork - to change the battery I will probably have to take the wheel off because there is no way to remove the device without cutting the straps and the access to the battery compartment is impossible while either the device or the wheel is installed.
