ForeRunner 305, Edge 305

I have an edge 305 for my bike, but my wife is getting me a Forerunner 305 for my Triathlon training.

The Question is, will the Heartrate band, cadence and speed hookups for the Edge 305 that I already have work with the Forerunner 305 or will I need to get the Cadence and speed sensors designed for the Forerunner?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

I think they should. There's a function to pair the device to accessories like the ones you have.

I don't think that the Edge 305 cadence/speed sensor works with the Forerunner.

When I moved up from a FR 305 to an EDGE 305, I had to get another HR strap. The EDGE 305 would not "recognize" the FR 305 HR strap.

Don't know if the incapatibility is bi-directional.

The forerunner and the edge 305 both use the gsc-10 cadence / speed sensor. Why wouldn't you just go to the Garmin website and get the information. They also use the same heart rate monitor

http://shop.garmin.com/accessory.jsp...0%2D10644%2D00

https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=1267

From there support site

Question: Will the heart rate monitor with my Edge 305 work with a Forerunner 305 as well?
Answer:

Yes, the heart rate monitor can be used for both the Edge 305 and the Forerunner 305.

FYI the new 605 and 705 appear to use the same cadence and HR sensors/transmitters as well.
