When you go cycling you don't want to bother with a GPS fitness trainer that doesn't provide the real-time data that you need - data like distance, speed, location, elevation and even heart rate-based calorie computation, even speed and cadence information.
You don't want a GPS trainer that won't allow you to compare that data and track your improvement...
Surely, you'd loathe a GPS trainer that wasn't easy to use; that didn't come with its own bicycle mount and necessary accessories such as wireless heart rate monitor and speed / cadence sensor; that didn't provide everything you need to start training right away.
No, you'd just walk right on past and choose the Garmin Edge 500 Bundle, because let's face it - it's not like all the others.
