Garmin Edge 500 Bike GPS with Heart Rate Monitor and Cadence Sensor
Sharpen your cycling performance with Edge 500, a lightweight GPS-based cycling computer for performance-driven riders. Loaded with data, Edge 500 tracks your distance, speed, location, and elevation with high sensitivity GPS. With the ANT+ compatible heart rate monitor and speed/cadence sensor you get a finely-tuned analysis of your ride. You can also add a third-party ANT+ power meter for more data on your performance.
Jump Start Your Training
The Edge 500 attaches easily to the stem or handlebars of your bike with a quarter turn with the low-profile bike mount. When you're ready to ride, just power on your Edge, acquire GPS satellites and go. Edge 500 features a high-sensitivity GPS receiver with HotFix satellite prediction to calculate your position faster.
Get the Data You Need
During your ride, Edge 500 measures your speed, distance, time, calories burned, altitude, climb and descent, as well as cadence, and records this data for your review. For extra-precise climb and descent data, Edge 500 incorporates a barometric altimeter to pinpoint changes in elevation.
Edge 500 works with third-party ANT+ enabled power meters to display your power output in watts as you ride. This valuable data shows you how hard you're working, regardless of conditions affecting your ride, so you can train smarter.
Other training includes the Courses feature, which helps you compare successive rides over the same route, as well as Auto Pause, Auto Lap and temperature readings. Edge also alerts you if you're moving but the timer is not running.
Track Your Heart Rate
Pair your Edge with the included Garmin heart rate monitor and track your heart beats per minute. Your heart rate is also used for advanced calorie computation, so you know how many calories you're burning. Train in a certain heart-rate zone to improve your fitness level or compare your pace and heart rate to past performance.

It's all really simple to set up and the included heart rate monitor is really comfortable. There's so much more data to look at when you get back to once you've uploaded it to Garmin Connect.
All in all, this GPS unit is really good. There's every bit of data a cyclist could want really and more, all in a really nice small unit which also happens to look good (and the red and black match my bike perfectly!!)
Only gripe I had was that the buttons on the sides to change screens etc are a bit small and fiddly, especially in these winter months when you're always wearing gloves. Shouldn't be as much of an issue in summer, but with full finger gloves on it does get a bit annoying.
Other than that, I'm impressed and I love my Edge 500!
I'm not a fitness guru, but more an enthusiastic cummuter / recreational cyclist. For me this device does everything I would ever need from a cycle computer + some great fitness monitoring.
Once you start the timer all data is recorded in the way of a .FIT file stored in the units 50mb memory.
It would seem that the .FIT is something quite exclusive to the Edge 500 and does cause some compatibility with certain websites that only read more traditional GPX, TCX files.
That said upon registering the Edge on Garmin's website you can get full access to every shred of info the .FIT file has to offer and is represented very nicely through charts and raw data. Very pretty to look at unlike some sites and above all free as a Garmin customer.
Also from the Garmin site you can export the data back to the unit for use as a course / route.
As I was thinking about buying the 705 rather than this it's worth mentioning that although you can't use the 500 for sat nav; You can plan a route on bikehike.co.uk and then export it as a TCX, which you can then load into the Edge 500 and use it as a reference (As not to deviate off course). Turn by Turn instructions can also be implemented in the way of course points but this is quite a lengthy process.
Although the 705 would have fulfilled the sat nav requirement I had; I know it's size would have been a major drawback, Besides I never actually get 'lost' on my bike therefore using the routes with occasional course points works fine for me!
Overall I've only had it for a couple of days and I love it already!
No idea how the battery life compares to the claimed 18hours but time will tell.
