A friend gave me a heart rate monitor for Christmas, and I kinda got a kick out of it. Then the HRM began to go on the fritz awhile back, and finally, even with frequent battery replacements, it stopped working altogether.
With some shopping around and a $75 rebate, I was able to track down a Garmin Edge 305 for about $150, and I went for it. The unit comes with seven buttons and a 93-page manual. After several hours of configuring and only a little swearing, I took the Garmin out for a shakedown cruise. And it worked. Sort of. At this point it looks like a few more hours and a couple of software upgrades might maybe get me up to speed with this thing.
So, I continue to slide down the slippery slope of technology.
Anyone have any good tips for making the most of the Forerunner?
