garmin edge 305 mounted on a mountain bikegarmin edge 305After getting to know my Timex Trail Runner 5C391 since it's August introduction from both a runner's and cyclist's perspective, I thought it would be a long time before another performance measuring tool turned my head.  Then Garmin sent word that the Edge 305HR and Edge 305CAD were coming soon.  Although this is a cycling specific tool, it offers some very compelling high-line features and I can't wait to get my hand on one for testing.

I believe you can definitely take your riding workouts to the next level with the Edge 305, Garmin's newest GPS-enabled, personal trainer and cycle computer.  Competitive road racing and mountain biking cyclists alike will enjoy this user friendly, lightweight Edge 305 as they seek to attain their personal best.  With the easy-to-use Edge 305 on your bike, you'll always know where you're going and how far you've traveled.

road racing with the Garmin Edge 305CADAimed at advanced cyclists, the Edge 305HR comes packaged with a heart rate monitor and the Edge 305CAD with a wireless speed / pedaling cadence sensor to provide invaluable feedback.

Garmin Edge 305HRFor those who must have both (like me) Heart Rate and Speed Cadence add-ons will be sold separately as accessories so you can incorporate both features into your training regimen.  In addition, both Edge 305 models incorporate a barometric altimeter for extremely accurate elevation and vertical profile data.

More important, the Edge 305 is the first Garmin to use the new SiRF Technology, Inc. SiRFstarIII GPS receiver.  This new receiver offers the best reception to date when used in the city in the shadows of tall skyscrapers or in woods and valleys canopied with trees. 

 ( Recreational cyclists looking for the perfect touring companion and fitness partner may choose the more affordable Garmin Edge 205).

The Edge 305 has the ability to measure pedaling cadence, heart rate, speed, distance, time, calories burned, altitude, climb and descent, plus much more.

305 features include . . .

  • Its easy to install with calibration needed. You simply snap the Edge 305 into the included bike mount and ride.
  • A High Sensitivity GPS Receiver knows your position, even in tree cover and canyons, making it extremely reliable for navigation.
  • The Cycle Computer is customizable and  shows up to eight different data fields for continuous feedback.
  • The trademarked Garmin "Virtual Partner" feature allows you to "race" against a virtual competitor, making training more fun and interesting.
  • You can also "race" against a recorded virtual Course to try to match previously set speeds at every point along the way.
  • Trademarked Garmin "Auto Pause" pauses the training timer when you slow down below a specified speed and resumes when you speed up again so you can focus on your ride instead of pushing buttons.
  • Trademarked Garmin "Auto Lap" automatically triggers a lap every time you pass a specified location or travel a preset distance.
  • Garmin Training Center software gives you the ability to create workouts, manage and download courses, and create a detailed post-ride analysis that charts your performance.

The Edge 305 with Heart Rate Monitor lets you see whether you are training too hard or not hard enough.  The heart rate monitor uses a robust wireless technology that eliminates crosstalk and interference, and sends heart rate data to the Edge via a soft, comfortable chest strap.  Data is stored with each track point for post-workout analysis.

The Edge 305 with Cadence includes a self-calibrating, wireless speed and cadence sensor so you can monitor your pedaling cadence as you ride.  Like the heart rate monitor, the speed and cadence sensor uses the same robust wireless technology to measure and report your pedaling strokes per minute.

With its waterproof, sleek design, either Edge 305 makes a perfect companion on any bike, and attaches to either the stem or handlebars. Its rugged case frames and easy-to-read, large, backlit display shows up to eight different data fields along with altitude and a map view.

The included Training Center Software gives you the ability to overlay your ride data onto a course map and offers interactive analysis tools that measure your speed, distance, climb, and descent against varying terrain, elevation and more.  Create and schedule custom workouts or use workout templates and download to the Edge.
