Might be confusing things here, I just added that for info as had seen it posted recently and might be an alternative for some. Depends on what's more convienient and if a little extra discount over the simplicty and speed of Amazon is worth it for some.

I posted the Halfords deal couple days ago and like yours was pulled as it was for a collected item.

Strange as delivery was also available but hey ho.

Even with just 3% Quidco, I think £96 is a great price, it's still up to £170 in large bike retailers!

Speed is recorded via GPS, no speed sensor required.

Cadence and speed sensors can be added but not essential.

An iPhone 5 with an allways on screen showing current data?

How long does the battery last?
Thanks OP had a garmin edge a few years back but stopped using my bike and sold it as I had a running watch but did miss the easy view back on bike now so this does the trick due to price and size so thanks for posting.

I'd always prefer a garmin over the phone option but I don't think the idea of getting a cheap second phone is a bad one. Using your own primary phone is definitely a bad idea however. For example a wileyfox swift is ant+ compatible and can be had for around 50 quid. For a one or two hour ride there are worse options anyway. But if people are routinely doing 50+ mile rides the garmin or wahoo would, imo, be the best option.
If Price is an issue try Bryton, I've been using one for a year it works well and links to Strava. Some pro teams use them.

Very mixed reviews
yes - I agree the reviews for Bryton are mixed. I have a Garmin sat nav and it is much better packaged with fancier apps, but if you are happy to fiddle around with tech and can cope with English manuals written in Taiwan then it can work well and save you money. If you want the industry standard go for Garmin. If £100 sounds too much Bryton might be worth trying.

All true plus the Garmin is smaller, hence more aerodynamic. However for me and my ageing mince pies they are too small to comfortably read on the move so I use my SmartPhone with OS maps app. Much easier to pre-plan your own route too

Tell that to your local politicians who make the laws that allow companies like Amazon to pay little tax.

Companies are obligated to their shareholders to spend as little as possible, and paying tax is an expense. Why would they pay anymore than they legally should?

People have free choice - I urge them to use it. Think first.
As other people have been saying this has been on offer from halfords for £99 since January.
My first gps cycling computer and i am well pleased with it.Although not colour the screen is very sharp and easy to read,syncs with strava and you can also get live strava segments.
It does a host of other things as well and for the price it's a real bargain imo.

Yeah, I’m not quite sure what you mean about control a trainer, when I use my turbo I link the speed sensor so you get all the data without gps.
But you can’t control resistance can you , like with Garmin edge. ?

I've missed a few turnings after not looking at the map on my Fenix 6 too. Ended up buying the garmin bike mount for it (£10). Not as slick as an edge style mount but it does the job and watch fastens to handlebars. Then just pair cadence and HR strap sensors to Fenix.40717440-fwV9j.jpg
On the fence with this, don't suppose if someone knows if the maps include tow paths?

Phones can pretty much do it all these days so thinking might just stick with those. Battery life is fine if you get one with a large battery. I currently have a Geotel G1 which is a cheap nasty phone but the 7500Mah battery will happily run the sat nav and play music for 10+ hour rides with about 30-40% battery life left, it's really not a problem. The Blackview BV9100 which as long as your happy carrying around a brick has a 13,000 Mah battery, nearly five times an iphone battery capacity, probably run a dashcam app on endurance rides too. Am tempted with this though looks slick.
I don't have this model but have the edge explorer. I route plan on Komoot (fab) and it saves it to my Garmin. Mounting a phone (for me) was rubbish. Couldn't see the screen or it killed the battery. Not sure i would buy this one though. The screen looks a bit small and maybe not enough features. Good price though. Like me, you might like it but want more and end up buying a better one!
