Does the job well

Cateye CC-PA110W Padrone+ Wireless Computer Black
Ownership: a few months
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high
Fairly easy to set up and easy to read. I haven't tried to use it in the dark.
I've been gauging it against an old Garmin GPS (the real time display, not the recorded track). I had a Cateye with more features that failed early this year. It could be used on two bikes or wheel, having two separate trip displays. On a single bike, that's handy to capture the distance between two points on one display and the total trip distance on the other. The Padrone+ lacks that function, but I haven't really missed it.
The sender and the computer use the same kind of common CR2032 batteries.
My only complaint is that it's too easy to erase the trip data by pressing down on the unit when lifting the bike, removing the unit from the bar holder, doing something else that temporarily presses down on the unit. Holding down for 2 seconds resets the trip data. I wish it required 5 seconds or more.
GPS uses discrete points to record travel. It often "shortcuts" a turn with a diagonal between a point just before and a point just after the turn. Consequently, I adjust the Padrone+ to slightly exceed the GPS mileage. There are other things that influence GPS mileage, so I use a running average. The best comparison is a single straight and level path, one way.

Some cycling computers can display a power reading, usually in watts. They usually require a separate sensor - in some cases a special hub or crank arm. A few will estimate the value based on speed, cadence, rider weight or other data. "Optional" means it can read from a separate power meter or sensor. "Included" means it is calculated by the computer or includes the neccessary sensor.
