Sorry, I know this is asked a lot but here is another one.
I left my edge 705 sitting on top of the car when I drove home the other day and after 4 hours of searching I cant find it. I am looking at replacing it but they still sell for around $300 refurbished . Is there anything out there that is appreciably better than the 705 for roughly the same $?
Basically, I have narrowed it down to the following:
- Refurbished EDGE 705 with heart rate monitor strap and cadence monitor - $300
- EDGE 500 - no strap or cadence (but I already have them) - $250
- EDGE 800 - no strap or cadence - $365
I really dont need the map feature as I only used it once in the 3 years that I have owned the 705. My only real requirements are an accurate sensor, screen size, long battery life and backlight (which I believe they all have). The 500 looks like it has a tiny screen and I have read iffy reports on its accuracy. The 500 however looks small enough to leave it on the bike when I flip it over (I carry my bike in the trunk and need to take the wheels off)... I always had to take the 705 off when putting the bike in the car which is the main reason for losing it. Any suggestions?
