Cateye Mity 8 vs Schwinn 15function wireless bike computer

I bought the Cateye before i got the Schwinn today for Christmas.

The Schwinn has more features which one does everyone think is the better one?

The Cateye isn't wireless but don't know much about either.

Thanks and Merry Christmas

I will say that my wireless uses a lot of batterys, in the head unit, in the spd dist sensor, in the cadence sensor, and in the hart rate sensor, I have to change them about twice a year, my unit is a Vetta and I like it.
I have thaught why don't thay make them with a solar charger I guess thay would not be wireless if thay did.

Cateye's are VERY good unit's, even the bottom line one's and I REALLY prefer, "WIRE" to wireless, jmho. Now since I had to have 4-unit's to cover all the bikes, we went to The Bell 12 functions, wired unit's from Wal-Mart and they've worked VERY WELL over the last 2 years, even in the COLD and rain and their under $20, if replacement is needed. Now mine don't have cadance tracker or heart monitor, ect. which makes them VERY expensive but either of the one's you have will work!

Looked at Cateye, but settled for a Bontrager Node 2.1 instead. There are batteries in all of the sensors, but they should last a while. So far I have not had any problems. I opted for that one as I could add additional sensors as I wanted. Nice to have the capability to expand if you like.

I think I would rather have a wired just because I hate having to run and get batteries
