I’m always thinking of how to use an old device. When you’ve given old phones to son and family, how else can they be used?
And then in a eureka moment, I hit upon a perfect use, at least if you’re a cyclist. So here’s a recipe for re-purposing an old smartphone into a smart cycling computer.
- Get a bike phone holder. I tried a couple, and this one is perfect, at least in dry conditions!
- Take you old phone and install Strava, Google Fit, or similar. Set it up with your home wi-fi, and connect before you set off.
- Also install DigitalHud from the Play store – it’s a great way to get live ‘movement’ data as you’re cycling.
- And Bob is your uncle – a smart, no-hassle odometer for your cycling!
