Watteam (USA) – Press Release: Powerbeat G3 2x2 is the world’s first pro level, add-on power meter that provides dual side direct power measurements and supports 2 bikes. Aside from power, cadence and balance, the Powerbeat G3 2x2 grants torque efficiency, and pedal smoothness.
The Powerbeat G3 2x2 is designed with the modern-day cyclist in mind, who has more than one bike, and wants a power meter on both. With an accompanied App, the Powerbeat G3 2x2 has cloud capabilities, Watteam has introduced the IoT to the world of cycling.
The step-by-step work flow and video tutorials guide the cyclist smoothly and precisely through the self-installation of the power meter. Easy swapping between bikes is done with a single touch.
Real Left & Right Power Measurement:
The sensors attach independently to each crank arm, on both bikes. You receive actual (not estimated) left and right leg power metrics, which help in identifying weaknesses, correcting them, and training to your full potential.
The mechanical sensor and its processing Comp Unit weigh less than 35 grams per side when attached to each of the crank arms.
Installation requires only basic technical skills. All the necessary tools are included in the box, with the exception of the Allen key or wrench necessary for removing the pedals. The downloadable app has clear instructional videos that will guide you every step of the way. The entire installation takes about 30 minutes, though the sensors need to dry for 24 hours after they're glued. Watteam’s Installation Center service is always available in case you want to skip the DIY process.
Everything from installation to calibration and firmware updates is done through the user-friendly app.
The device is durable enough to sustain dust and harsh weather conditions. It even has a built-in temperature compensation mechanism, so the power figures remain consistent regardless of the weather.
Powerbeat sports the industry's first ecological battery. It comes equipped with a charger and the battery lasts about 60 hours. A notification is sent to the head unit when the battery runs low.
