A powermeter or power meter is a measuring device for bicycles that measures mechanical power in watts. Depending on the design, the measurement is taken in the crank or in the pedals. Built-in Strain gauges measure here the twisting of the material. The determined data is then displayed on a head unit such as a bike computer, a sports watch or a smartphone. But not only the power in watts can be displayed, but also e.g. the cadence, power balance or Training Stress Score (TSS). To determine the respiratory and Heart rate a chest strap is also required to measure.

In the beginning, power meters were only available to the professional Cycling reserved, today it is a widely used tool. Many manufacturers like Favero, Garmin, Quarq or Rotor have jumped on the bandwagon and offer high quality products. Ambitious cyclists or triathletes can now find powermeters in different designs and in different price ranges. Pedalpowermeters are easy and flexible to use. They can also be used alternately on different bicycles. Cranked powermeters, on the other hand, can only be mounted on several bikes with a little more effort.
