Great for a beater bike – 1.5" LCD 15-Function Waterproof Wired Bike Computer Odometer Speedometer - Black + Red (1 x LR44) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
This is perfect for a winter/commuter/city bike. I installed it on two of my "vehicles" and they seem to function perfectly after a few 100 kilometers.
Cons:
The unite looks a little fat on the cockpit. Also, during the installation, I had to find the exact position to make the sensor work with the spoke magnet as it was very difficult. It only seems to sense the magnet from one side so I had to reinstall it on the other side once I realized it wasn't a distance issue.
Other:
I have owned a very identical unit in the past (branded differently) and the battery has lived a couple years of regular use, so if this unit is exactly the same as I expect, then it's almost maintenance free!
Bottomline:
Buy Buy Buy!
