Garmin Edge 820 or 1000 or Wahoo...

Hello Everyone,

I am having a hard time deciding on which model or even getting one in general. I would love to get your input on them. I have watched some Youtube videos on the 820 especially and there has been problems in the past, not sure as of late. Have any of you that own on of these models are having any problems? Do you recommend any of these or should I pass?

Thank you very much for your help and assistance.

Folks on my team have had 800s and 1000s. They all said the 1000s are better. So I got one of those with a 15% team discount and Garmin's $100 rebate. It's pretty good.

Thank you very much memebag for your help and assistance. If I bought the 1000 on Amazon.com can I get that $100 rebate still? Maybe I can get that 15% off too....

I currently own the Wahoo Bolt works flawlessly couldn't be happier. It has to be one of the most well designed, easiest to setup and use devices I've ever owned.
