Which computer for cadence, heart rate and wireless?
Looking for a computer that has a heart rate monitor, cadence and that is also wireless.
I am looking at the Cateye V3, the Garmin Edge 305, and the Garmin Edge 705. Not sure if there is anything else in this category. If there is let me know.
Not sure which one I should get. I like the Garmin for the maps although I am not sure I need them. The uploading ability is nice too. I have not used a GPS on my bike before so I dont know if it is worthwhile to have. I dont like the fact that it has to be charged pretty often and the 705 is new so I am sure there are a bunch of bugs. I like the fact the cateye doesnt have to be charged all the time but the sensor on it is very large and it is also a new product. Not sure of the ability to upload things from it though.
Do the wireless ones have problems with dropping data and giving crazy results? The cateye is 2.4 so it should be better and garmin is a large company and its not the first time they have made computers like this.
Which one would be best (most reliable, easy to use, ect)?
