GarminGarmin Edge review at LetsGoMobile : This time I am reviewing a device made for the serious cyclist; the Garmin Edge 705 HR. The many possibilities of this advanced bike computer specifically target this group. Navigation software can also be used, however; that is not the core value of this device. The Garmin Edge is a training device, supporting training sessions. Not only in its ability to register performance like speed, distance and heart rate, but also to plan workouts.

Garmin Edge review - Menu classification of the Garmin bike computer
LetsGoMobile adds: "Although the dimensions are small, the Edge 705 offers a wealth of possibilities. Take the Menu button; upon pressing it, a modest list of 6 options appears: Settings, Where to?, Training, History, Save Location and Satellite. Many more steps follow one level down. That is why it is convenient that we can return to the main menu by pressing the Menu button once. The Mode button is used to scroll through the menus, to go one step backwards and the joystick to go one step further or to confirm. In general, you would start setting the Profiles. You can insert age, gender and weight, which is used to customize the training."

Garmin Edge review - Creating a workout on the Edge 705 HR
LetsGoMobile continues: "The Training menu also provides us with a Virtual Partner. If we have created a workout or set a certain route, we can activate this training buddy. The Garmin Edge 705 will then display two cyclists, the top one is the cyclist of the selected program, the bottom one shows your own performance. A nice and funny way to see if you are ahead, in pace or behind training schedule. For some people, this might just be the challenge they need to make a long training session more pleasant. The Workouts setting provides a wide range of options to set times, distances, and speeds, with or without intervals. Everything can also be linked to a certain training goal. Enough variation for all likings."

Garmin Edge reviews - 705 HR GPS receiver
Bike computers that can only measure speed and distance have been outdated for several years now. Today, these devices can track all sorts of data from our cycling trips. And Garmin even took it one step further. GPS functions have been added to a device that is not much bigger than a speedometer. To what extent this is a useful enhancement is assessed in the full Garmin Edge test at LetsGoMobile.
