Seems like Garmin has another decent competitor in the mid-range and Polar was getting killed out there with all of its simple HRM-only, wristwitch-type solutions.

This looks pretty decent if you're not looking to incorporate power data, or from anything other than the company's proprietary EUR1700 Look pedals.

If I were in the market now for a replacement for my Edge 800, I'd consider it.

Finally got the gadget and took it out today. First impressions are good. The interface and screen are very intuitive, and it even congratulated me on a long and successful workout(!). Not yet used the mapping but am looking forward to it
