YOU BETTER USE IT!!
Snake on tether, on bike 2,3 ,4 5, whatever. Hit train, swing leg over bike! touch start, and your off. I love it!
this thing finds satelites so fast its amazing!!
You have to pair sensors to 1000. I actually wonder if it is possible, if you have Multiple bikes, with multiple sensors, in one area ands select search all, will they all pair at once?
I have 2 sets of the new sensors coming. I will see if it will pair all at once.
I still don't like the power button. but I can now turn it on within the 2nd press, Just have to find the sweet spot. And I'm gold!
What cycling gear to get next and where to get it
What? A distraction? I do not have one yet, but the 800 I do have has never told me to look at it. I do turn off the warning beeps [because that is a distraction]. I'm certain Garmin has that option with the 1000 and does not have a feature that insists I look at it.
Someone is off the mark, but it is not Garmin.
I was actually annoyed my 810 didn't have a tether, so I added one in. At least with the new new units (not just slightly re-vamped, looking at you 810) they're adding it as a stock option, these things are expensive, and the tabs have been known to break.
I am very tech oriented, but I can only remember looking at my 1000 maybe twice over the ride of 22 miles. The scenery was gorgouse! The few joggers that were out were not all over the MUP as usual. It was Beautiful!!
The beeps, I heard. i know that I was below my heart rate, so it was not unexpected. not intrusive, nor obnoxiouse. My cadence was low, a beep confirmed that, no problem, I wasn't burning calories as I should have. A beep confirmed that. A beep here and a beep there did not diminish my experience.
What I did like was that after my ride, I carried my bike up the stairs, took a quick shower, grabbed my bowl of cerial, plopped in front of my laptop, and opened my connect. All of my ride information was already downloaded from the wifi. I connected my 1000 and uploaded to Strava, no surprise there, no acheivements. Left a comment on my frame of mind and my ride. then checked this site.
I guess what I am saying is that even though we (I) harp on how great this thing is, I don't constantly look at it. I do enjoy the scenery, I do enjoy the outdoors, and live to get out there. but not on hard effort days!!
The guy that brought my 800 from me loves it!! He is like a kid with a new toy! The funny thing about it was that he had a 500, which he has now given to his girlfriend. The 1000 is like going from a 500 to a 800! Now I went from a 800 to a 1000, There is no contest! The 1000 is, I don't know how to say it, but it is the 1000!! Screen could have been bigger! Large size! Small glitches at first but have since never happened again. NO STRAVA SEGMENTS!!!!!
BUT TRY AND TAKE IT AWAY FROM ME!!!! I DON"T THINK SO!!

i typically don't look at my Garmin either. its really to log in my mileage and i can look back and see where and how hard i rode regardless whether its a tourist pace or business pace.
what i do look at and the largest number at top is my heart rate. that's my major concern. other than that, i enjoy getting out for fresh air and scenery.
