Cadence Sensor: How to Transform Your At-Home Cycling Experience

We’re always working to find new ways to help you better track your progress and work towards your fitness goals. That’s why we have some exciting news: with the new Sunny 2-in-1 Cadence & Speed sensor you can track your indoor and outdoor cycling workouts on the SunnyFit App!

Use the new Sunny 2-in-1 Cadence & Speed sensor to connect with the SunnyFit app and track your real-time stats during your cycling workouts.

All you need is an indoor cycling bike (or outdoor road bike), the Sunny 2-in-1 Cadence & Speed sensor and the SunnyFit app to stay connected through every climb, sprint, and flat road.

Read on for everything you need to know about how to transform your at-home cycling experience, including a full tutorial on how to set up and use your cadence sensor for your best results yet!

 

What is a Cadence Monitor?

Cadence monitors track cadence or ‘revolutions per minute’ (RPM) which is interchangeable in the cycling world. Cadence is basically how fast you are pedaling, measured in RPM. One revolution occurs when the pedal makes a complete 360-degree cycle.

When you’re cycling, cadence is typically referred to in RPM. Throughout your workout, you’ll likely hear instructors call out specific cadence or cadence ranges for you to target to either push or pull back your pace.

Your cadence can help with your performance, recovery, and beyond. On the bike, knowledge is power. When you know your cadence, it helps you to be in control of your ride, making better progress towards your goals.

A cadence monitor is a great way to track your cadence in real time. While many indoor cycle bikes may have a cadence monitor, they don’t all give you the option to Bluetooth connect to fitness apps to keep track of your stats, workouts, and progress over time.

The Sunny 2-in-1 Cadence + Speed Sensor will allow you to not only track your cadence but connect your bike with the SunnyFit app and other fitness apps of choice to give your workout experience a tech boost.
