The CatEye Padrone Smart allows you to keep your smartphone safely stowed away while combining it's power with the large, easy-to-read Padrone display.
In addition to working with you phone* in mirror mode (where it will display phone call and email alert icons in addition to ride data), the Padrone Smart can work in sensor direct mode without the phone.
In mirror mode, smartphone records ride data with the phone's GPS and from optional Bluetooth sensors** and transmits a copy to the Padrone Smart.
Sensor direct mode allows the Strada Padrone to connect directly to optional Bluetooth sensors**.
** Bluetooth heart rate, speed/cadence, and power sensors sold separately.
