Garmin Edge 705 on Wired's Top 10 Products of the Year

garmingedge705mapping.jpgWired Magazine has piked their Top 10 Gadgets for 2008 and coming in at #8 is the Garmin Edge 705 bike computer/GPS/magical data thingie.

When I reviewed the Edge 705 I had to agree with them that it can crank out data like a banshie and armed with that a data-junkie's bike riding life could get a whole lot better. On top of the obvious bike stuff (speed, distance, etc), it can also be paired with a wireless power meter to pull in that data and allow you to chart it up versus your heart rate, the elevation of a hill, your cadence, speed, and on and on.

Since it's a GPS, it can also help you get "lost" in your ride while always knowing where you are and how to get home. I recommend getting the additional map card so that you have detailed back road maps for those long rolling bike rides through low-trafficked streets.
