Good basic computer

PostedApril 20, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Lightweight, Looks great
Bought this recently, fitted it quite easily, up and running within 30mins. Mileage accurate and very easy to use and monitor progress. Slightly disappointed that it does not have an average speed or trip time, should have looked closer at the functions before ordering!

bought this to put on a spinning bike for a charity event and with a bit of packing and Velcro it worked a treat, so clear and easy to use.

Good simple computer for the price

PostedFebruary 2, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight
I have 3 of these simple computers for my bikes and I bought this one as a replacement because I tried to change the time and managed to push the function button on the back, right inside the unit and that meant it was defunct. So my advice is to be careful what you use and how hard you press when setting or changing the function! But, for a simple, no nonsense computer it's ideal.

Solid mount and simple functionality.

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
It's really a no thrills product in the nicest way. I am a daily commuter and wanted the mainly a mini computer to track time, current and average speeds - for which it is perfect. The cumulative distance setting is also handy as it enabled me to cycle from Brixton to Brighton on the weekend with written directions only judged on distances into the journey. highly recommended for a casual/keen cyclist.

Easy to read, easy to use and at a good price!

PostedMarch 5, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
The Velo 5 was purchased as a replacement for an older Cateye model that I had lost after several years of good service.
The Average Speed facility on my old Cateye was seldom used so I opted for the cheaper Velo 5 model as a replacement.
The Velo5 has a larger screen making it easier to see the displayed data. Using the big single button control it is easy to scroll through the data options and the Auto Power Save facility should increase battery life.
After many years of satisfaction with a variety of Cateye cycle computers, I would have no hesitation in recommending this model to anyone who needed only the basic facilities.

Good value.

PostedFebruary 16, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
The Velo 5 is very good value for under £10.
The features are basic but useful and in my opinion any other functions are superfluous to my needs.
