Garmin Edge 705

RRP $749

If you’re anything like me you want a lot from your bike computer and a lot is what you get with the Garmin Edge 705.

When I’m on a ride I want something that will give me my heart rate, speed, cadence, power output and given my horrible sense of direction, a map.

The Garmin Edge 705 does all those things; by proving the rider with everything you could possibly ever need from a bike computer.

This GPS-enabled cycle computer is packed with functions, but it was the turn by turn directions that sold me on it. Thanks to the Garmin Edge 705 those awkward calls home to the significant other explaining you’re an hour late because you got lost again are a thing of the past.

The Garmin Edge 705 even allows you to share your data with other Edge 705 friends after your ride.

Some people will see its size as a negative, but that just makes it easier to follow the map. At just over 104 grams it’s not too heavy and best of all it has a 15 hour battery life.
