I am not positive about this new Garmin Edge 1000. I am not going to upgrade my Edge 800.
Here is a first preview of DC Rainmaker. The review comes in May or June.http://www.dcrainmaker.com/2014/04/garm ... -1000.html
Although the Edge 1000 has some nice features, it is not good enough for the price they ask for it.
The two thing I like is segments but no compatibility with Strava and that is wrong in my opinion and the ability to receive text messages (but you need a phone to receive = too bad)
The Battery has not enough power and only 15 hours when you don't use the map view.
I wish there was a smartphone that is completely waterproof, ant+ compatible, shock proof, bluetooth 4.x, nice apps with segments and Strava compatibility and 24 hours power.
This will kill the edge 1000 easily. Maybe the new Samsung Galaxy S5? It is already water proof.
