Garmin unveiled today two new integrated personal training systems for recreational and advanced cyclists. The more interesting of these is the Edge 705, priced at around $550 and expected to be available in December.
The Garmin Edge 705 wlll let users monitor, in some cases wirelessly, GPS position, power, heart rate, speed, cadence, altitude and gradient on the same 2.2-inch color display. Street navigation is available, cyclists can share data wirelessly and data collected by the Edge 705 can be shared online with others through the Garmin Connect Web site.
There’s a lot more this device can do as well but you get the general idea it will keep cyclists well informed. Maybe they can even program in points of interest like local pubs to bike to for a pint?
