The memory capacity is 500 MB, which can store data up to 4,000 hours of training. A built-in motion sensor turns the PC8 on automatically when riding.
Since many riders have several bikes with power meters, the PC8 supports up to four different bicycle profiles. Selecting the profile for the respective bike prior to departure eliminates the previously required pairing with the power meter.
The shell is made of anodized aluminum, which is available in three different colors: red, black and titanium, and can be personalized.
Charging and data transfer is accomplished using a magnetic plug. Training data is stored as a .fit™ file and can be analyzed using popular training software tools such as Golden Cheetah, Strava, Training Peaks, and Velobook.
Data from power meter, speed sensor and heart rate monitor strap is received via the ANT+ protocol. The PC8 is compatible with all power meters that support ANT+.
