The SRM Powercontrol 8 training computer has been consistently designed to meet the needs of athletes. In order not to lose focus during training, the bike computer was trimmed for functionality and efficiency. You won’t find any unnecessary features. The SRM PC 8 includes all the important information for performance-based training. These values are stored and can be displayed. Furthermore, in addition to the known values such as power, heart rate, speed, etc., the display can also be freely configured.
On the one hand, the display can be used in automatic illumination mode. A sensor controls the ambient brightness. On the other hand, you can also turn off the backlight or invert the display colors so that the background is black. The battery life of the SRM Powercontrol 8 is between 10 and 45 hours. Turning off the automatic illumination and the GPS increases the battery life.
Like its predecessor, the SRM Powercontrol 8 bike computer has a built-in motion sensor. The computer switches on when driving off and switches off automatically if the vehicle is stationary for several minutes. The battery is not unnecessarily discharged and therefore conserved. Due to the memory capacity of 500 MB, up to 4000 hours of training can be recorded and stored. The SRM PC 8 gives you the option of storing four different bike profiles and selecting the one you want before setting off. Thus, the ANT+ sensors belonging to the respective bike are selected directly.
Unlike previous models, data transfer and charging is done via a magnetic plug. The recorded data is saved as a .fit file and can be evaluated with a training software (e.g. Golden Cheetah, Strava, Training Peaks, etc.). The data transfer from powermeter, speed sensor and heart rate belt is done as usual via the ANT+ protocol.
