5.0 out of 5 stars Garmin produce a bike aid and Navigation tool, 24 April 2014
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Garmin Edge 800 Touchscreen GPS Bike Computer Performance Bundle (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
I've owned this product for about 12 months now, I am a keen cyclist and use my Garmin 800 every time I go out. It is a product I would recommend (and have recommended) to a fellow cyclist.

The level of detail and configurable options make this the perfect aid for any cycling enthusiast. You can monitor and measure virtually anything from Heart Rate, cadence, speed, time, angle of climb / decent, total ft climbed / descended, calories (this can be actuately measured once you input your personal details) in addition you can plot a routes and courses or simply input a destination and be navigated there - You will need to purchase a UK Map separately this isn't part of the Performance Bundle..

The device does not have bluetooth, which is on the 810 - this allows you to upload to Strava / GarminConnect via mobile without laptop. But to be honest that isn't a massive problem for me and not worth the difference in price to upgrade. I need to charge the device through USB, so I just plug it into my laptop to charge while I'm uploading.

Touchscreen is fine, it does require a bit of a press sometimes but not a hard press and it does work with gloves on which is certainly needed.

Screens can be configured to meet your hearts desire. The configuration menu here can be a little unintuitive, but once you know where you are going it isn't an issue.
