Mattwood1Mattwood1

Been looking for a Garmin Edge 800 to use on road bike.
Seems like a good price sold by and supplied by Amazon UK.

Only seen cheaper from a far east ebay trader.

    Not as all £300+ on cycling sites even more for bundled versions.

    At that price don't fall off while you're gazing admiringly at it!

    Know its not the typical £12 cat eye but if in the market for one new from a reliable seller its a great price.

    the camilizer tells me its been about this price all year, besides new version out soon might get a drop then

    Hmmmmmm.......not being funny but what can this do that a half decent smartphone can't do? I use a couple of apps to track my runs / rides & can have the GPS sat nav going while it's recording my progress.

    try connecting the garmin over its super low power ant+ sensors for heart rate, cadence, power etc .. although you can buy an ant+ adaptor for i think just the latest iphone for about £60, i wonder how long the iphone battery would last on all the time running GPS and this adapter and priocessing all the data .. plus the garmin will survive the normal cycling rough and tumble .. iphone - not

    .... what would be a cheaper alternative to this (though with a much smaller screen and battery lfe) is a garmin forerunner for about £150 (i got recently a 410 with HRM for £107 from amazon on a deal posted here) which can stay on for 8 hrs displaying and collecting all the sensor data .. and you can use it for running as well

    if youre a keen cyclist these things can really help make you a better rider


    forgot to mention .. the early Edge's had a big design fault whereby over time the internal connectors came apart over bumps cutting the power to the device and the next bump or two it would come back on ... pretty crap design .. the edge splits apart in 2 halves and where they meet there is a power connector which just rests together and the only thing keeping them connected is the glue/snaps holding the 2 halves together ... over time the 2 halves get looser and you see this behaviour .... i'm sure they have fixed this now but if you do have an old one (that you have in the back of a cupboard as "broken") you can just split it apart and either hard solder the connections (bypassing the crappy connectors) or just bend the crappy connectors a bit putting a bit more tension when they are joined and it will be 100% again ...

    Smartphone displays cannot be seen very easily in bright sunlight, battery life is appaling and not weatherproof. I tried running my smartphone and gave it up as a bad job when the battery died 5 hours into the ride.

    Cold - the price of £247.78 delivered at Handtec is much lower and they have a price match policy. I have purchased a Garmin 500 and 800 there with good service and low prices.
