The benefits of utilizing data collected from Powermeter training are recognized from pro cyclists to sports physiologists, and from its inception, CycleOps has been pushing the boundaries of power meter technology. The latest innovation in power training is the Joule GPS Computer. The first CycleOps GPS computer, Joule GPS has expanded metrics, more detailed historical reporting and full GPS capabilities. If you've been running a Garmin CPU with your PowerTap, the time to change over is now. The CycleOps GPS Computer offers a seamless relationship with PowerTap that no one else can match.Weighing a remarkable 75 grams, the new CycleOps Joule GPS Computer is a lightweight monster of power computing intelligence. If you're used to the Joule 2.0, you'll be happy to hear that the new Joule GPS Computer still uses the customizable dashboard to display your selected data. The Joule GPS Computer displays 18 metrics at a time, like watt/kg, peak power, power zones, heart rate zones, temperature, surge count, altitude gained/lost, grade percentage, and much more. You still have access to Report Mode, which holds your historical averages stored in increments of one week, two weeks, four weeks, eight weeks, six months, and 12 months. This mode is useful for post-ride analysis of how your training is progressing, but all reports can be accessed on-the-fly during a ride. The Joule GPS allows analysis of historical data to be compared with your current ride data, as well. Altogether, there are 58 metrics available for history reports that include power detail, work, peak power, and climbing.The dashboard on the Joule GPS Computer can be changed at any time. The new Joule features a similar joystick-type controller to toggle between desired metrics, modes, or reports that you want displayed on the dashboard. A huge advantage of power training with the Joule GPS over a Garmin CPU is the Joule's ability to set automatic intervals by simply hitting a button.
