Apple's latest watchOS 10 turns your Apple Watch into a cycling computer

WHETHER YOU'RE A NOVICE or a seasoned cyclist, the latest watchOS 10 update has turned the Apple Watch into a valuable device packed with bicycling capabilities. As part of my normal fitness programme, I've discovered a number of biking capabilities incorporated into the Apple Watch. Some may appear obvious, but others are obviously less well-known.

When Apple launched the Apple Watch, street-cred for utility was recognised when the Cupertino company looked into advanced metrics from the running community and introduced concepts like vertical oscillation and ground contact time in addition to heart rate data, so that the wearable could push you new perspectives of your workout.

This year, the focus was on cyclists. For a while now, cycling enthusiasts relied on third-party cycling accessories in order to give them relevant data like power, cadence or speed and so watchOS 10 can now seamlessly connect to cycling accessories including connectivity with power meters so that your Functional Threshold Power (FTP) could be estimated. This in turn allowed the world's most valuable company to develop power zones for the cycling aficionado who didn't want to get too technical with specialised devices.

A CYCLING COMPUTER ON THE WRIST

Apple Watch is a great device for cyclists, with features including automatic Workout reminders, calorimetry for e-biking, and Fall Detection. WatchOS 10 takes this popular activity even further with advanced new metrics, views and experiences.
