In addition to measuring your heart rate, the watch keeps tabs on your speed, distance travelled, the time elapsed, calories burned, and changes in altitude as you ride.

Other notable features include V̇O₂ max tracking, continuous heart rate monitoring, personalised training plans, and guided breathing exercises.
This watch works well with a variety of other activities too, including running and swimming. It also boasts a long battery life of up to 30 hours per charge when used in training mode.
Retailing at around $399, the Vantage M is priced significantly lower than the Vantage V, making it a compelling choice.
