Trainer. Navigator. Edge 705 pushes you to do your
best, then shows you the way back. This GPS-enabled cycle computer
knows no limits. Get heart rate, cadence, turn-by-turn directions,
power data (from ANT + SportT-enabled third-party power meters)
- the works. Even share your data with other Edge 705 buddies
after your ride. All wireless with a color display, this is no
ordinary cycle computer.
Navigate Your Ride
Lose yourself in the ride without losing your way. Edge 705 comes
with a built-in basemap, plus it has a microSD card slot for adding
map detail and storing workouts, courses and saved rides. Just
plug in detailed MapSource® City Navigator® street maps on a preloaded
data card and get turn-by-turn directions on a sunlight-readable,
color display as you pedal. Add optional topo mapping for your
off-road adventures. Edge snaps easily into the included bike
mount to guide you to your destination.
Get the Data You Need
Available in 3 versions (see 'In the Box' to the right), Edge
705 comes bundled with different accessories to keep you on top
of your ride. Edge 705 automatically measures your speed, distance,
time, calories burned, altitude, climb and descent, and records
this data for your reviewą. For extra-precise climb and descent
data, Edge also incorporates a barometric altimeter to pinpoint
changes in elevation. It features a high-sensitivity receiver
that holds a signal under trees and near tall buildings, and comes
with a click stick for easy screen navigation.
See Your Power
Edge 705 works with third-party ANT + Sport-enabled power meters
(check back soon to view list of compatible devices) 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. Get a competitive advantage
by viewing power output along with Edge data all on the same display
and storing this information to analyze your workout.
Measure Heart Rate and Cadence
Garmin's innovative ANT + Sport wireless technology means you
get heart rate and speed/cadence data with no strings attached.
All versions of Edge 705 include a wireless heart rate monitor
to measure your heart rate and track your heart rate zone. Some
packages also include a speed/cadence sensor to monitor your pedaling
cadence and wheel speed as you ride. You can even use it to train
indoors because the sensor attaches to your rear wheel.
Swap Rides Wirelessly
With Edge 705 you can share your courses, workouts and saved rides
wirelessly with other Edge 705 users. Now you can prove that 20-mile
uphill climb with a 2000-foot elevation gain. Better yet, send
it to your buddy to ride. Sharing data is easy. Just select "Transfer
Data" to send your information to other Edge 705 units within
a 3-meter range.
