Xplova X5 Cycling Computer Captures Ride Data and Video


Xplova has unveiled its new X5 cycling computer, marking the first of its kind to offer both ride data and video recording capabilities in one device.

The X5 comes equipped with a wide-angle camera which can record key moments during a ride, wherein the device’s Intelligent Algorithms automatically captures 3-second video clips based on pre-determined parameters such as speed, heart rate and GPS coordinates.

Additionally, the X5 features a Transflective Color Display, which supports ANT+ and claims to deliver 16 plus hours of battery life.


The X5’s video function can be activated manually as well, allowing cyclists to capture and edit up to 8 clips into a single video, which can also be uploaded to social media for friends and followers to share in the moment. 

In addition, Xplova offers a companion app for the X5, which provides the following features:

  • Find Me: Connect with friends to display each rider’s GPS position in real-time, great for safety as well as friendly games of “catch me if you can” while on the go.
  • Remember Me: Pick the video clips of key moments on your cycling journey and upload to social media to let friends and family share the excitement.
  • Lead Me: Follow popular scenic routes curated by other Xplova community members. Discover new vantage points and picturesque views carefully selected by local riders.
  • Challenge Me: Go head-to-head against the best saved times. Acts as a virtual challenger who pushes riders to improve their lap times from past routes.

Furthermore, X5 features Smart Sign Guidance, which syncs and stores a cyclist’s favorite routes in the cloud. The Smart Sign Guidance also works with the company’s Moment App, whereby cyclists can also download maps from around the world shared by other members of the Xplova community.

The X5 can also act as a live dashboard as well, by displaying a cyclist’s ride data in real-time, including heart rate, speed, power output, cadence and more.

There’s also another function called Chart View, which allows cyclists the ability to analyze their ride data in greater detail, to include graphical analysis that can compare heart rate, speed, power output, distance, gear position and trip duration.

The X5’s Live GPS tracking is an another valuable function too, which allows cyclists to keep tabs on other riders in the group, while still allowing them to pursue individual or collective performance goals.

Lastly, thanks to the X5’s IPX7 water-resistance rating, cyclists can be assured that their computer won’t succumb to the elements, even on a rainy day.
