    Apple was right to nix those features. A lot of the wrist-sensor technology works very well for some people and poorly for others. When you spend several hundred dollars on a device from a major...

    Black carbon rims, out in the desert (Okanogan Highlands) descending 4,300 feet with very steep sections, including a mile at 15 %, I lost a bit of braking power. I was still able to stop (and wait...

    How would you use the watch? If you're wearing it on your wrist, it's going to be hard to see, and depending on how hard you're riding and what the road surface is like you might not notice...

    Might. Seem. Ok, Cannondale "might" be a trade name of McDonalds, and zombies "seem" to have overrun New York.

    If it makes you feel any better, it's been 50 to 60 F in Seattle most of this "winter" and the Olympic Mountains have 3 % of their normal snowpack for this time of year. Our snowpack is usually...

    With HRV, the estimate is within 5 to 7 % of reality. I think that's pretty good.

    If you want to learn why optical heart monitors don't/can't do HRV, talk to somebody who makes one. Or suppose,...

    You can start with How calorie measurement works on Garmin fitness devices.

    The rest of this is an answer I gave previously to the same question.

    You can suppose anything you like, but optical heart monitors do not measure and report HRV, which is used in the most accurate calorie algorithms on modern Garmin (and other) units.

    I had a Garmin Oregon years ago, it's a hiking GPS like a Montana, but much older and the software was less refined. I know it will save your tracks into a GPX file but I can't tell you how. It was...

    You definitely want to play with it before the ride if you can.

    It should record your tracks (where and when you were) but you probably have to start it tracking. It should be able to do that...

    If that was the case people wouldn't do it so often.

    A lot of buyers don't have questions. Their kid wants a green bike, and the out-of-focus picture confirms that this is one.

    It's weird because some of fitbit's marketing stuff makes it look like it's intended for cycling.

    That's a little harsh. It's partly true, though.

    The thing does HR fine at normal day-to-day rhythms, and measures your resting heart rate automatically every day. Which is really nice if you...

    I've been using an 800 for 4.5 years, since it first came out. This has never happened to me. I ride 3 to 5 thousand miles a year and use the Edge on every ride.
