Oops, I didn't read your post properly. Forget what I said about Ant+, the new generation of duotrap clearly has both protocols. That makes it much easier, sorry for any confusion. It will work with your watch and phone without problem.

Given that my 735x talks to the phone which talks to Fetch so I'm assuming it will work, but as a beginner cyclist I'm not at all sure what informtion I might need or want and what to do with it when I've got it.

If you use this Helegant I'd be interested in your feedback please. I've nevercreally bothered about techie detsils - I'm just glad if I stay upright ;-) but maybe this would be a motivator to try and improve. Good luck with your cycling!

H, bear in mind that Duotrap isn't going to give you much more than your 735xt does already. You'll get cadence of course and speed when using the bike on a static turbo. I like Duotrap, it's a neat installation. One of my bikes has its predecessor with an Ant+

Thank you for answering the first of, what I suspect will be, a series of questions.

I haven't investigated the use of a static turbo yet - not even sure I know what one is or how to use it, so I'm on a steep learning curve. If i find myself using one in the winter I think it would be usseful to have some stats to show training effectiveness/improvement.

Got something to say?
