With biking, a lot depends on how far and how fast you are going and what kind of bike you are riding. 

I bought a bike mount that corresponds to my heart rate monitor.  It keeps track of my distance, speed, and calories burned. 

A lot will depend on if you are doing a lot of uphill riding, riding with the wind, etc.

I like the heart rate monitor to make sure I’m staying in my cardio heart rate zone and to see how far I rode more than anything else.   

I ride a hybrid (kind of a cross between a mountain bike and a road bike. . .it has thinner tires than a mountain bike so it goes a little faster on pavement).  I average 10-13 miles per hour on that bike, but if I take my sister’s mountain bike, I will be going much slower if I’m riding on pavement.  If I were to jump on a road bike, I’d probably go much faster.

Here is the cycling computer I have.
