    This list might seem a little long but I consider each one essential for a powermeter

    1. Accurate power reading
    2. Repeatability - i.e always accurate
    3. Wireless set up (I hate wires and my bike has internal cable routing so nowhere to put the wires)
    4. Good battery life
    5. Easy to use computer interface - one screen for current or average power, time actual or interval, speed, and average speed or power indicator (ie you set a power output you wish to maintain and the indicator tells you whether your average is higher or lower)
    6. Not too expensive - Ideally $500ish
    7. Be easy to setup
    8. Handlebar mount suitable for standard and oversized handlebars as well as stem mount
    9. Coded heart rate monitor
    10. Wireless cadence
    11. Finally - the computer should either be totally cool to look at (without any question of a doubt) or it should blend in to the bike and not stand out

    Thats a easy one. Garmin edge 305 with propper sat-nav, colour screen, Power reading oh and a longer battery life and tones of memory.
