No Wires: Garmin Edge 305 HR

About.com
27 December 2009
  • Conclusion: I really like having a detailed training log, but I don’t like entering all of the information required to keep a log updated. That's why I was eager to try the Garmin Edge 305 cyclecomputer, which automatically uploads vast amounts of information about your rides into your personal computer. The 305 is a fine, multi-function cyclecomputer, and unlike a typical cyclecomputer, there are no unsightly wires to run to wheel sensor pickups.
  • Pros: No lead wires to wheel sensor needed., Easy to switch between bikes, or use for other purposes, such as running., Get a great training log, and chart parameters such as heart rate, just by uploading data., Share map and ride data with friends online.
  • Cons: No moving map display. Not a true navigation aid., Heart rate monitor strap needs significant sweat or electrolyte gel for good contact., Battery life: should recharge after every ride.

  • Summary: The Edge 305 with heart rate lets you see whether you are training too hard or not enough. The heart rate monitor uses a robust wireless technology that eliminates cross-talk and interference and sends heart rate data to the Edge via a soft, comfortable chest strap. This data is stored with each track point for post-workout analysis. With its waterproof, sleek design, the Edge is the perfect companion on any bike, and attaches to either the stem or handlebars.
