  • Excerpt: I’ve been using the Garmin Edge 305 for over a year and I love it. There were only a few features (navigation and power output) that I wish my Edge 305 had. It looks like Garmin granted my wishes with the Edge 705.

  • Summary: The Edge 605 and to a bigger extent the Edge 705 really are a biker's dream, giving any techie biker plenty of data to play with, performing well in my outings. It was easy to get to know the Edge 705. I realized that after a couple of rides, the Edge 705 became a trusted device that was just expected to perform; I was able to reset the data before the ride, start the timer and take off, without a second thought.

  • Excerpt: I remember when the cycling computers--the digital, electronic kind--first appeared on the scene. My first computer, over 20 years ago, was the original CatEye Solar. I remember it having speed, average speed, time, distance and an odometer. It was also the size of a brick, and weighed about the same, but boy was it cool. Now, in a smaller package with a bigger screen, Garmin has their newest marvel, the Edge 705. What a difference a few decades make!
