While there are plenty of accessories designed to help you keep track of your running using your iDevice, there are far fewer designed specifically for cyclists–and none using Bluetooth 4.0…until now.

With a built-in battery that’s good for up to 2 years of use, the device can even track your stats when not paired with your iPhone, allowing you to sync at a later date. The Wahoo Blue SC retails for $59.99, and you can check out all of the details after the break…
