    Strava - Garmin Edge 705 or iPhone 5 app ????

    I've had a garmin edge 705 for quite some time, with the strava app I'm not finding much use for it - I just run the app on my iphone and put it in my camelbak.

    Am I missing something? Is there a point to having both? I mean I'm sure there's some point to it but for simplicity having the iphone seems to work just fine.

    the Garmin is more accurate and probably has a better battery life, though with age it may do well for a replacement.

    I have a flip phone. No intention to go I-phone so the Garmin is a must. If I ever do switch to a smart phone then the garmin will be pretty much useless. My 500 doesn't get any maps or show position as a smart phone would. It's good for heads up display but doing single track mountain biking there's not a whole lot other than heart rate that I'd care to see as it happens and I don't use a HRM. Just my experience.
