Strengths:    Very user friendly, customization.

Weaknesses:    Glitchy. Poor product support. After 15 months of use, my Garmin Edge 500 began to freeze and/or power down secondary to vibrations/large bumps. Since the Garmin warranty is only valid for 1 year from date of purchase, I then was asked to pay another $90 as a service charge to have it repaired.

Bottom Line:   
Great when it works, but mine stopped functioning after only 15 months.

best cycling computer I've ever used. small, light, easy to use, easy to upload data to strava or WKO, Ant power from Quark, this thing is super easy to customize on 3 different screens the data you want to see, long battery life, tons of memory. I've never deleted a workout from the memory. easy to switch from bikes. Can't go wrong with this one.

Strengths:    Features, menu customization, long battery life, sleek design.

Weaknesses:    I can't really think of any - the unit has been flawless for me since day one.

Bottom Line:   
I've had this unit for 5 months now and all I can say is wow. I love all the features, long battery life and size/sleekness of the unit. It has multiple pages that I can scroll and view items that I am interested in and can also be customized. I purchased the unit along with a heart rate monitor and cadence meter and at first it was a bit of information overload. Over time I've come to rely on the unit for my training and to brag/smack talk w/friends on Strava.
