Today I had a nice, solo 83 miles ride. I felt strong, like I could have gone another 17 miles to make it an even solo century). When I got back to my car I put my bike on the rack, removed the water bottles and the bike computer (Garmin 510). I put the cheap water bottles inside the car, put the computer on top of the trunk, got distracted by an incoming phone call, got in the car, drove off and...as you may have guessed the Garmin remained on the trunk while I drove happily away.
I am now out $300.00 plus all my ride data is gone.
I am tempted to ride naked...I mean sans computer. For various reasons, mostly health reasons, I need a computer to track my rides and to monitor heart rate with an alarm feature. (I had 4 stents put in last December). So as tempting as riding bare may be, I need a computer.
I like the 510 and maybe I will just replace it with another 510.
But what about the 800 or even the 810? The 800 is on sale for a very reasonable price.
Any suggestions? Recommendations? Comments?
