I don't think strava will do it. You will have to use 3rd party software to combine the data, then manually load the new file to strava. Golden cheetah has a merge function. But, i have not used that function. I am not sure how well the two files will end up aligning. E.g. you start recording with both devices at slighlt different times and various autopauses happen during the ride. I would not expect the different files to match in terms of gps position and hr.

You don't need a speed sensor for the garmin to report speed. It is better with a sensor, but it will display speed based on gps.

Fwiw, i would either keep what you have or buy the non-bundled 520 and add on ant+ accessories. The garmin hrm strap is not wonderful. I like garmin's newer separate non-magnetic speed and cadence sensors (the speed sensor is attached to a hub - so no wheel magnet or thing mounted on the chainstay). I also prefer the wahoo tckr hrm.
