Crank mounted BT/Ant+ cadence sensor?

I need a new Bluetooth/Ant+ speed/cadence sensor. My bike computer can only pair to Ant+, but I need BT for my laptop when I ride Rouvy (and I don't want to use a dongle).

Anyway, do the rubber bands on the crank mounted, magnetless cadence sensors rub on your shoes? It seems like it would unless I mount it towards the bottom bracket.

Thanks
Paul

My 1420 has the Wahoo cadence sensor on its left crank arm, facing inward. Have never had any contact with it. It does both protocols. My sweetie uses the same sensor...and just has it on her left shoe, so it moves with her from bike to bike. They're pretty forgiving about placement.

Thanks. I'm glad you reminded me that shoe mounting is an option.
