I would like to run a heart rate monitor and cadence meter linked to my GPS data. I would like to be able to upload directly into Strava or other online training program's without having to link up to a laptop in between. Also buying an expensive Garmin device seems pointless when I could just put the money towards a better phone.
1. Are there phone apps that allow upload of GPS routes to follow? I presume there are...
2. Phone case and bar mounting options to protect against rain and crashes?
3. Phones themselves - any particular recommendations? Not too big for bar mount, good battery life, anything else?
Or should I buy a dedicated Garmin-style device anyway?
