Garmin Edge 1000 Cycle Computer Review
You will notice from our previous reviews that this is not the first Garmin on the list and not the last. Garmin feature heavily in the cycling computer market. That is why we have decided to include a Garmin Edge 1000 Cycle Computer Review.
Yes this cycling computer is what could be considered higher end of the market but its well worth it and we will see why.
So we have just considered a couple of cycling computers that are considered to be in the cheaper end of the market. The Garmin Edge 1000 takes us out of that market.
First of all a lot of the computers featured have a small display. The Garmin Edge 1000 Cycle Computer takes it up a level with a 3 inch dual orientation colour touchscreen with a GPS. This is very helpful when reading your data at speed when riding.
The purpose of having a cycle computer is to track your data as you ride. Once again with the Garmin Edge 1000 Cycle Computer you will get a computer that tracks time distance and speed. Also you can track ascent descent and calories burnt.
Extra features include preloaded European cycle maps round trip routing and lets you connect to Garmin Edge.
As we continue our Garmin Edge 1000 Cycle Computer Review we notice an added feature that we have not seen on other cycle computers.
The notable feature of the Garmin Edge 1000 is Live Tracking. The Garmin Edge connects to your smartphone. This enables the live tracking, alerts weather and alters and incoming calls, although im not sure why you would want to take incoming calls!
Having read our Garmin Edge 1000 Cycle Computer review you may think this cycle computer is packed full of handy features that your could use. However after seeing the prices you may conclude that this cycle computer is expensive for a computer for your bike.
But if your serious about cycling then this is an excellent option for you and one that you should consider.
Knowing your speed and distance is ok but to track your cycling properly you will need an upgrade. We love they way the Garmin Edge 1000 connects straight to your phone and you can analyse your rides you will no doubt improve.
An excellent bright screen is easy to read and navigate when out on rides. All in all an excellent cycling computer, if you can afford it.
Ok you may think this is expensive for a computer for your bike. But if your serious about cycling then this is an excellent option for you.
