Does anyone have the Edge Touring unit from Garmin? At $249 it is cheaper than the 800 unit that I think most people have and it seems like what it does is enough when you can also track your ride using an app like Strava on your phone. It seems to have some nice features that the 800 does not have. So, I'm curious if others have purchased the Edge Touring and are using it or have nixed it and why.

Thanks,

Never used one...but there's a good comparison chart here:

Based on the online reviews - this product seems to be aimed at cycling enthusiasts who aren't as interested in "advanced training" that involves cadence, heart rate, or power meters. The 800 head unit itself isn't really that much more (~$30). The "800 bundle" is more - but it includes a HR monitor and cadence/speed sensor - which isn't apples to apples w/ just the Touring head unit.
