    Heart Rate Monitor

    I bought a Garmin Forerunner 50 HRM and would like to know of anyone's experience with Garmin's online or offline (program downloaded to one's PC) data /training recording programs. Pros or cons of one versus the other.
    Additionally an opinion on wearing it as a watch or mounting it on the bars for ease of use when riding.
    Thank you,
    Bob

    I have the garmin 305 and use both programs. The offline kicks off as soon as I plug in my garmin. I use the online one so I can post my rides on my facebook page. I like both programs. They give me plenty of data. Probably too much.
    Ride like a Jedi!!!

    I have an edge 305 and found the best tool for it is SportTracks. http://www.zonefivesoftware.com/SportTracks/

    I wrote a review of it here-http://ww2.rochesterflyers.com/reviews/i-wanted-to-write-a-full-review-of-sporttracks-20/

    It's donation ware so you try it, and if it's worth it to you, you pay what you feel it's worth. There are many plug-ins to tailor it to what you need. The training load plug-in give a WKO+ type of training analysis.
