Garmin Edge 200 GPS Bike Computer – : good but easy to scratch screen

I don’t feel i need to know my heartrate, power output, cadence etc, cos at the end of the day im a 50 year old giffer bimbling about on my bike, but i do like to record my mileage & time and compare (and hopefully better) my last ride. Only loses a point because the time is 7 hours out and despite contacting (and remarkably receiving a reply from) garmin its still doesn’t read the correct time – but hey ho, i own a watch.

I really love this gadget – it’s up there with my iphone for loveability. If you like to see how well you are doing and want to be inspired to go further, faster this is for you. It does the job very well, is accurate, the garmin connect web site idea works well, although you need a good quick computer and broadband to avoid frustrating waits for the maps to redraw. It come with 2 mounts included and so there is now one on the road bike and on on the mtb.

Nice bit of entry level kit and just what i needed. Was recommended to me by a friend and they came through on that recommendation. You need a computer to plug it into to get the full usage out of the product, this opens up the true capability of the product.

Fantastic value for money, does everything it should and is straight forward to use. I use it on 5 different bikes, 2 for racing, 2 winter bikes and one summer bike and just switch from one to the other so it actually works out cheaper than buying separate computers.

Good long lasting and simple to use. Not massively capable compared to alternatives but does a great job of recording your ride and providing basic odometer and speedometer. Links very well to strava through garmin connect. However, the screen scratches really easily so get a screen protector.

Discovered this bike computer from a friend and just had to have one, i find it gives me more encouragement to go further, better my previous times, its just makes cycling more enjoyable and all my rides can be stored on my computer, so i would definitely recommend getting one.

I ummed and arred over this but very pleased. £50 more than a half decent bike computer, but well worth the extra. I have a race and a tt bike – this swaps between the two as well as being able to record runs. Garmin connect is a fantastic tool and the real time readings much more accurate than standard comps.

Does everything i wanted, unlike my previous computer. Certainly, using a plug-in to directly upload or you can use garmin express to upload via the garmin website. However, this latter program gave my mac some problems, to such an extent that i had to remove it via a system reload.

Buy on Amazon

Brilliant basic bike computer, battery lasts for very long rides, 150 miles plus for myself and probably longer, easily will fit onto any bike handlebars or frame. No issues and have used this at least four times a week for the past 18 months.

I first bought a wireless cateye for my bike. Problem was losing the sensor on rough ground due to the feeble cable ties, new ones cost £20. I decided to get the garmin and have not been disappointed. It is easy to set up and use. Additionally, connecting to pc and finding out so much info about the ride is quite an eye-opener.
