These smartwatches and activity trackers are perfect for cycling.
One of the biggest jumps in tech can be found on your wrist.
We've had a look through eBay and found some smartwatches that are perfect for cyclists, triathletes and runners.
The Fenix 5s is the one that we'd chose for using alongside a power meter.
That's because the Fenix 5s has ANT+ connectivity alongside the standard Bluetooth and the ability to display cycling metrics where many others can't.
If you're more interested in heart rate or don't need power connectivity then the 235 is brilliant.
You can still access your activities on Strava and dig deep into the heart rate data using Garmin Connect.
This one is more centred around the connectivity with a smartphone than the Garmins above, but it's still great for activity tracking.
In fact, if you're looking for a smartwatch that can also do activity tracking then we'd pick the better phone integration from the Apple Watch as you'll get a better experience with notifications.
Fitbit has secured a huge chunk of the activity tracking market thanks to their simple and relatively cheap watches that work very well with apps like MyFitnessPal.
The Ionic is great for 24-hour tracking with sleep analysis and resting heart rate tracking. The contactless payment function and it's ability to store and play music make it easy to use on a daily basis.
Suunto's 9 Baro is aimed at people that can easily break a watch, like us for example!
The tough casing and 120-hour battery life make it great for adventure trips. It's also easy to connect this up to Strava via the easy-to-use Suunto app.
Finally, we've got a watch that is perfect if you're looking to stick to a tight budget.
GPS tracking is accurate and the heart rate monitor allows you to drive into the data through the app. It might look basic, but it's a great value option.
