I dried it off, opened the back and simply took out the battery and put it back in and it worked fine. Are the ANT+ speed sensors more accurate than GPS for speed? Do you know if anyone has used either of these with a spin bike and had success, I thought it could have worked and bought the cadence and speed sensors. Quick update: I gave the speed sensor a thirty minute break and it now flashes the green LED when I spin the wheel. Weird, I haven’t seen that before. Thank you. I have the new combo on my bike and connected to my fenix2 however I’m only getting the cadence reading on the watch..no speed..changed battery,,flashing green,,still not working..what do you think could be the issue? Any suggestions (from ANYONE in the community). I only bought it mainly for Cadence so I think I am SoL. Bontrager DuoTrap is the integrated sensor that wirelessly transmits ANT+ and Bluetooth® Smart signals to your computer or phone. Not sure if … Yeah, I’ve since used it in all manner of tests and haven’t really seen any high cadence issues. They’re usually pretty flexible anyway. A bicycle wheel covers roughly 2 meters per revolution, so your rollers will be rolling 8 times faster than a bicycle wheel at the same “speed”. Virtually all spin bikes have solid wheels, whereby there’s no ‘hub’ to mount it on. However I have a pioneer powermeter, and it won’t register any speed with either device riding indoors. Is this new type of sensor only compatible with certain Garmin devices similar to what a Garmin ANT+ temperature sensor is? Where? Hi I was wondering if anyone can help. 3) The Wahoo can be attached to your shoe. I’ve been able to get a speed/distance reading on both my garmin 500 and 520 using a powertap hub while riding indoors. (Remember, the sensor is misnamed. So to that end, while I like Garmin’s new sensors and wouldn’t have any immediate issues with recommending them, what I’ll be doing is getting one of each of the Garmin units purely for test purposes – but I won’t update all my bikes to the new sensors.  I prefer instead the ability to easily get access to both protocols – though, that may be because I’m often testing devices from both camps.  So look at your situation and figure out whether having dual matters to you or not.  If not, you can save a bit of cash ($10), and if so, just wait a few weeks to see how things play out. I’ve experienced the Powertap G3 failing to measure this. is the Garmin speed and cadence sensor compatible with Scott 720 mountain bike wheels. So I picked up the Wahoo like you suggested! i.e.  The new cadence sensor had an automatic configuration of 2097, versus my others having 2088. Updated (twice): One final thing to note: Some older Garmin units only support concurrently connecting to EITHER the speed-only sensor or the cadence-only sensor (or a combo sensor). 1st i installed my magnet- less speed sensor on the back wheel’s hub, friends told me should install on the front wheel’s hub, so i then installed it on the front hub, still the same happening to my edge 1000 reading, speed keep on drop, remain, drop, remain…… headache. The itself sensor is misnamed. You mention that you were planning to do some further work around the high/low cadence……I recently tried a Wahoo RPM with my 810 head unit. Our applications in turn take the information gathered by each sensor and put it to work for a raft of useful applications. Have you got any suggestions as to how I can further investigate the issue? WIll this display unit be able to sensor to the speed of garmin sensor. With your recommendation years ago, I bought the Timex Cycle Trainer 2.0 from Amazon with your affiliate link. Garmin Speed Sensor (EU/UK/AU/NZ – Wiggle) Get to use to having auto correction switched on 🙂. thanks! Thanks. I could be missing something on one of those sites, though. I’m from out of the country and will be visiting the US, what’s the best triathlon shop in city XYZ? The first one died due to getting the internals wet on an extremely rainy day. I've noticed Garmin has release speed & cadence sensors that use accelerometers as opposed to magnets. ANT+ Cadence-only: The new magnet-less cadence sensor Sometimes I like to spin a really high cadence for a minute or two (180 rpm or even topping 200 for a handful of seconds.) Just set the wheel size to zero, since speed and distance are both zero on a trainer. But you’d go into the pairing menu and pair each one individually. Bluetooth bicycle cadence sensor by the manual calibration methods. Get the Garmin or Wahoo separate ones. Moving the sensor to the rear wheel doesn’t help. In most cases, Garmin doesn’t require receipts as long as it’s obvious it’s within the warranty period (in this case, they weren’t announced till April/May 2014). ANT+ Speed and Cadence – for connecting both new cadance and speed sensors – what I need, Got all the Garmin devices I’ve order. Check out Yep Garmin are ant+ only in fact Garmin own ant+. Firstly, the treadmill has 2 to 3 inch diameter rollers and I`m hoping there is enough free space to the side of the front roller to fix this in place as would be the case if it were fixed to a wheel hub that would have a smaller diameter, so in theory, (if I`m correct in my thinking) the bigger diameter the more chance this has of working because that would mean it would not be rotating as fast as a 1 and half inch diameter wheel hub, for example – for the Suunto Ambit2 to have to deal with. That is displaying the same issue with frequently returning to 0 and not showing a stable speed at all. I went for a ride today and again my Garmin Explore was not reporting cadence, yesterday it was. Hi Ray, has anyone successfully used the cadence sensor on their shoe? Now, that said, if you’re comfortable with glueing a magnet on, you could technically glue a magnet in a place it doesn’t get ripped off. Can I have that feature? I can’t find anything on that sensor that remotely looks like it would emit light. The wheel circumference is a bike profile specific parameters, so as long as I select the correct profile in my Garmin 800 when I swap the sensor between bikes, my speed data will be accurate for that bike. Yup, I’ve had a test version for a long while, but it was kinda flakey (due to being beta). Unlike traditional cadence sensors, the RPM does not use a magnet to detect crank rotations. It appears to be over-reporting on a very rooty and rocky mountain bike trail. You’ll also need to hope that the head unit you’re using to record will allow arbitrarily sized wheel sizes to compute speed/distance.  I’ll try and get this added into the table, but it’s going to take a bit more time since I’m travelling. Next, a brief look at the same outdoor cobbles section that I noted earlier, as part of my short outdoor ride.  Here’s the speed between the different sensors.  Note again we’re looking at RPM of the wheel and not the actual speed: (Edit/Update/Note: Garmin believes that the noisiness of the speed sensor I’m seeing is due to placing it on a PowerTap wheel, which they believe is introducing interference. Just wondered if you had any ideas? It’s possible that the 910XT is like the Edge 800 in that those choices don’t show up immediately but only after you’ve tried and failed (Garmin UI can be weird). If you don’t see a light then, something is wrong. I downloaded the strava app to my S4.They just cannot pair. link to eu.wahoofitness.com The 810 will auto calibrate using GPS if you want, though.  So the actual difference could be: Again, like I noted above – I’ll be getting more examples as part of my Edge 1000 review – including seeing what happens if I override the automatic configurations on both and set to the same values. There’s been a few others from lesser known brands, but none have really had any specific reason why you’d want to go with that versus a trusted brand (and they were rarely any cheaper). It was an unmitigated disaster for me as riding with a high cadence (average 100) meant that I was often getting wild readings. (** Update: These sensors have since been updated. I cant seem to get them to pair with cyclemeter app as I thought they would as they are ant +. You’re auto pause is significantly faster than GPS. Is there a serious contender for Grmain sensors? Would I recommend you buy the new sensors?  Well, that depends a little bit on whether you have sensors today.  My feeling is that if you already have perfectly functional ANT+ speed and/or cadence sensors today and they work just fine with your bike setup – then I’d probably hold off.  Why’s that? If you’re like me, several miles may have passed in blissful whistling before you notice that the sensor … Use Backcountry.com or Competitive Cyclist with either the coupon code DCRAINMAKER for first time users saving 15% on applicable products. Hi, would like to ask why my speed keeps on dropping even stops during my ride? As for web sites, the one I use seem to be either/or. I am using the Wahoo fitness app and everything has paired up. Working now. Thanks. Trump has a figure-eight pattern is the speed data. Hello, Would appreciate your thoughts (privately as a review is understandably not forthcoming) on both units. My existing ANT+ speed sensor (the one that came with the SRM) just died, and I like the design and ability of place the Garmin sensor on the hub. I have changed the battery. But I just checked again and now it is 2047. This review shows that the Garmin magnet-less cadence sensor shows near identical results with a magnet based unit on an Edge 1000. Will let you know if it does not pair up with my 920XT. After it’s set up, the 500 should only pair with the sensors that are on that particular bike, so all you have to remember to do is choose the correct profile. Looking at my recent Wahoo ANT+ ID’s, all were above 5 digits, except for the KICKR’s. It’s doing my head in. Fixing your data completely must’ve been more work than they wanted to undertake. I mean, while Im doing the workout (sorry i didnt explain correctly). Youre saying the gym bike is closer to 130-140. Spin the wheel with the sensor on it. It seems to me that it would need to know the exact diameter of the wheel, which would in turn depend upon the tire installed, no? Shouldn’t they pair with the app? Suunto Speed and Cadence Sensor will work … What I really like about the Wahoo app is I can calibrate the foot pod (can’t do that in many apps) . I’m having hell with my speed sensor. Thanks for the heads up on this older post though, which has the older wording. For what Its worth I bought the Garmin over the Wahoo. ? None unfortunately. Strange…….. Why don’t you try VeloComputer Smart sensor, they provide the magnet less speed and cadence sensor (ANT+ & BT)? There is enough space to put it between the crank and the pedal, but I am afraid about the crank being very big. I plan to buy Garmin Edge 520 for outdoor and some indoor trainning info. But now let’s look at data captured from another Edge unit that was connected to one of the older magnet based speed sensors: But again, what’s the end resultant on distance, or speed?  Well, for speed the units actually displayed very close the entire time.  It’s just not that visible to the human eye versus the graphs.  As for the distances, here’s the total from both units: Now, one thing to consider in the above difference number is that those are from Edge units, which are using different calibration values (both based on automatic configuration). Would I need to remove the sensor each time I clean the bike? Nearly 2 months later I had a call from them to say Garmin would replace it. – 700×23: 2096 mm (that, by the way, also have ID’s, 10 digit) It is one of the best … The reason I couldn’t login was because the login form said username so I entered my usual username, it actually wanted email though. This item is not valid with coupon codes.”. Nevertheless, I have yet to see anyone have any good luck with pairing the cadence sensor with TImex CT. Hi, good review. The cadence sensor easily attaches to your bike's chainstays with a zip tie or the included rubber bands, … I’d consider Garmin’s equivalent ANT+ cadence sensor, but am hesitant to waste more money. (I have a couple of GSC-10’s that came off bikes) I was using the GSC-10 with my Edge 820, so far, so good. After getting it all configured, it’s time to head on for a ride.  I first started with an indoor ride.  Indoor rides are the easiest things for any cycling product, as it removes bad road conditions which can often cause troubles. Thank you. (my phone has ANT) Or any salvage help on Timex with Wahoo sensor? What about the Wahoo RPMv2 with just a few extra rubber/silicon mounts? Thanks. In the UK/EU/Australia/New Zealand? One thing that it can be sensitive to though is if it’s not snug on the crank. Go back into sensor details and select “Speed sensor and cadence sensor” 2. Got a status that the cadence sensor was detected. Or does the speed sensor must be self calibrated first by hooking with garmin edge/watch. Garmin you are stuck with Ant+ That’s why, for example, all ANT+ footpods are the same. I would like to measure my cadence and probably will use vivoactive with my trainer as well. Note: Since Android … Suunto Bluetooth HR Sensor works for OS X only. Is their any point buying the speed sensor. I have a Powertap G3, just got a new bike, and trying to decide what cadence sensor to go with. thats quite possible i just looked at the far right column which says YES.  So if you have four categories to choose from, you’re good. I have a Garmin 910XT, I dont have a power meter but I do have the cadence and speed sensors. Isnt the Edge 1000 gps speed sensor accurate enough for road racing. Just curious, but has anyone tried the cadence sensor mounted to a shoe rather than the crankarm?In trying to be as minimal as possible, I had hoped there would be a way to use a foot pod to monitor cadence, as opposed to attaching anything to the cranks. Notes: A Garmin Fenix isn't required. Any other suggestions? My 705 reports 7.65 miles. Thanks. Depending on which head unit you have, the procedure will differ, but the value is the same for a specific tire size. Oh, and you can sign-up for the newsletter here! Got it?  Ok, good, let’s talk compatibility.  Below is a chart I’ve put together after manually verifying compatibility with each sensor type.  If there are more down the line that others are able to validate I can easily add them to the chart, but I wanted to keep it to things I’ve physically validated rather than just assumptions. Hi everybody. Oh, and free US shipping too! I will be using the same Edge 1000 on both bikes. Looks like I might need to buy a new one…. I am new to the Edge 1000 unit. My have a really large hub on my back wheel and had to use a rubber band to expand the side of the rubber strap for the speed sensor. The bike doesn’t have a hub to attach the device to, as it’s a magnetic spin type bike. and it appears that battery life might be an issue….thinking I could probably leave my cadence and maybe speed “off” during the trip…. So I’ve got this installed and the cadence sensor read immediately after pairing, but I’ve not been able to get speed while indoors on a trainer. I can’t get my device to pair with the two sensors. I ride a trail bike even on the road, so perhaps I’m better off with GPS? I decided to just use the ERTO conversion site provided above (by you I think) and manually set it for today. Here’s the link to all the devices currently compatible with the new cadence sensor.  And here’s the link for the speed sensor compatibility.  And, for completeness, here’s the table of the sensors in question with prices: I’m not seeing any major issues yet with the sensors, either indoors or outdoors.  Though, I’ll dive into more detailed testing and comparisons as part of my Edge 1000 review and see if something sneaks up – especially around edge cases (high/low cadence, rougher sections of road, etc…).  This mostly serves as as stop-gap to stem the flow of questions. Instead, a 3-axis accelerometer is used to determine the location of the crank arm and thus your RPM. I turn the back wheel two times and I get the green flashing light that all is okay. Be sure you spin up the cadence sensor … Here’s why. First thing to try would be a new battery. ALSO: how can I calibrate the 520 to count the cadence rotations and give me distance? It first uses a spoke magnet and cadence magnet placed on … Wahoo doesn’t do well, and this review confirms Garmin doesn’t, either. These are ANT+? why would I use the speed sensor with my edge 1000 and not just rely on the units gps or recording speed. One reason you’d want a speed sensor is city riding. Thanks for all of your work investigating and reviewing these products.  Basically, the pairing menu only allows you to connect to one sensor in that category. At which point it’ll show both sensors and you can accept to pair both. I've got a GSC10 on the commuter and a rare earth magnet on the pedal spindle and the new seperate sensors on the other bike both paired to my 810. Any ideas? One thing to keep in mind is that for the most part all sensors are made by a single OEM in Asia, and then just rebranded.  Here’s the order of precedence for Garmin units on the speed sensor: 1. I originally set this up with a Garmin Bike Cadence sensor, but I switched to a Wahoo RPM dual Bluetooth/ANT sensor so that see could use it with her iPhone too. Notes: A Garmin Fenix isn't required. I just updated to the most recent software for the device. The most common question I receive outside of the “what’s the best GPS watch for me” variant, are photography-esq based. Tks Ray! Obviously avoiding drive belts and running belts. Obviously, this did not last long as the magnet would eventually work loose from rotating around the rollers. Garmin HRM soft strap I just wanted to see the data from my Speed/Cad Sensors and my HR in my computer but without a payed program like TrainerRoad or Zwift because what Im looking for is really simple. The 500 seems more realistic while the 520 reads 5 km/hr slower. Outside of that one comment, there’s been not a single mention in any comments (or contact form e-mails) as far back as March (I didn’t bother looking before that). Then, I come here and write about my adventures. I am guessing mixed could mean positive or negative results. Thanks in advance. Good bye old Garmin cadence sensor you have done your work. Might a bluetooth speed sensor on the rear wheel be able to connect to my Garmin Edge 810 and avoid the problems generated by the magnets on my dynamo? What are your thoughts please, I note the 235 is not included in your charts above but that maybe because the 235 was not around when this review was done. Then the computer calculates the distance between those readings or plot points and states that as the distance. A little more accuracy, and it won’t go nuts if GPS reception is poor. When I did the sensor detection it didn’t show one for speed only cadence. Turn it back on Got to the settings and tell it you do not have any sensors Then tell it you do have a cadence sensor and search Repeat for speed sensor or dont … Any Garmin watch that can run the elliptical app and can talk to the bike cadence sensor should work. I had them on there but took off to change batteries because one of them was acting up. Hi Ray, I have Garmin’s ANT+ Speed & Cadence magnet-less sensors plus Edge 500. Yes, there will be GPS data in the FIT file even when the sensor is connected. (“plugin” “radio service” “PUP” etc…). – 700×28: 2136 mm. Both have the same somewhat annoying delay in reporting cadence when you change speeds. Go into Sensor Details After all, if your Elevation Gain changes, so will your overall distance (and dramatically more on long rides). I have built an extensive list of my most frequently asked questions. Other bike computers might be handling bike profiles / sensors differently, so you may have to find out what works with yours. My fenix 3 isint compatible with their app. How did the 2nd cadence unit work? Thanks again, as helpful as ever. With time elapsing in between changes, the sensor is roughly 18 months old after being bought with a Edge 520 (it has since been regularly paired with that device, a Fenix 5x and more recently a smartphone to hook up with Trainerroad). A Google search has yielded no assistance! That way I save a TON of $$ if I can use them and not have to replace them with the ones in this article. Could I use it /Wahoo/ also together with Tacx Vortex Smart for cadence info or together with Zwift ? ANT+ Speed/Cadence Combo: The older GSC-10 combo sensor Standalone cadence sensor (or combo speed/cadence sensor) Hi Ray, thanks for the prompt reply. Garmin Express doesn’t seem to support rpm’s. I am reading that apps like Zwift can work off cadence and speed only and translate that into power.. With apps like Zwift, they use a known trainer table to lookup resistance curves (works on many, but not all trainers). Hi! I’ve been unable70 to get the cadence sensor to pair with a Garmin 705 unit. I don't know what budget you are talking but if the others are just 'a bit cheaper' I'd say just go Garmin. I get roughly 5,000-7,000 comments a month in posts, so that’s a lot of comments. As per your experience, would you use a Speed Sensor or let the GPS measure the speed ? I’d rather buy these than the older Garmin GSC 10 which has the combined ant+ Sensor/Cadence. 2. How about a little love for Sigma? So I’m wondering if something else is going on…. I have two bikes. I followed this setup. Do you reckon I should get another Garmin computer and stay with Garmin? And, I have no issues with the speed sensor and my PC8. My set, bought in Germany in July, had 5 digits ID’s. Yes, it can. If not, do you have any suggestions on how I could get both features to work on my spin bike. It’s a nice break from the day to day sports-tech talk, and I hope you get something out of it!  They suggested instead putting it on another wheel. So I decided to go for these magnetless ones thinking no magnet, no chance of spikes. Since I ride rollers indoors, I simply use the same number that I use outdoors, but I don’t take the speed or distance seriously, what with the lack of wind or climbs. And since the sensors came out less than 2 years ago…, (Assuming that UK qualifies for this EU policy, and assuming you’re in the UK.). Power meter sending torque and cadence (e.g. And guess what, I still get them appearing such as a cadence reading of 207 when I know my max is around 150. However, I just bought the production one last week, and literally just took it out of the box a few minutes ago. Power meter sending power values and cadence (e.g. As you can see from the table above, the 705 does not support separate speed and cadence sensors, only combined sensors. I don’t think it will fall off, but I don’t know if it will slip when the wheel spins really fast. Hi Ray, Ive just ordered a combo speed/cadence sensor for my 920XT,and the shop phoned me that soon (after a SW update) the GSC10 and other (like Bontrager’s combo sensor) will be incompatible with the 920XT. It’s quick glance at higher cadence sensor dedicated and double. To use these sensors, your Android device must be ANT+™ enabled. Garmin Support Centre is where you will find answers to frequently asked questions and resources to help with all of your Garmin products. Variance doesn’t surprise me but 14% higher than good GPS surprised me a bit. I shall feed back mid to end of next week. I get my trainings from TrainingPeaks and I guess its not possible anymore to sync CG and TrainingPeaks since 2016 🙁. If I enbale in the Edges’s menu Speed and Cadence sensor, the calibration of my stages fails. I use always the same one so I can put the half-lock pod on it. I’d go with the Wahoo BlueSCv2, which is dual ANT+/BLE. Instead, a 3-axis accelerometer is used to determine the location of the crank arm and thus your RPM. The sensor itself only counts rotations, and knows nothing about the wheel size. The speed sensor must be paired directly through the Garmin Connect™ app, instead of from the Bluetooth ® settings on your smartphone. Erik, the settings are in the bike computer and how it is set up, probably depends on what bike computer you are using. These strings aren’t globally unique – some some units have low-acceptable numbers (i.e. Wahoo RPM Speed Sensor– Magnet-Less Option To Track Cycling Progress. The … Hi Ray, I don’t know if it will be able to go that far. Would the cadence sensor work if attached to an ankle or shoe? any help would be much appeciated. I know that there I did enter the Ant ID number in the software setup. I then fixed the small magnet to the side of the treadmill belt and calibrated it correctly to precisely match that of the treadmill. It’s on the side. Garmin Speed sensor Additionally, you can also use Amazon to purchase the units or other accessories (though, no discount). Thanks. I’ve got myself this new combo on my brothers bike and my own bike and they work perfectly together with the 800 and 1000. That seems weird. Do the speed-only and cadence-only sensors work with Vivofit 2? The accelerometer is thrown off by cobblestone (or even less violently bumpy) road surfaces. I have tried playing around with various measurements/speeds in order to get something from it but nothing at all. It’s IPX7, which is the same as your GSC-10 (so complete immersion for 30 minutes at 1-meter deep). Whilst this did initially work I discovered that at speeds in excess of 6mph, the Ambit could not compute the information (speed rate at which the flywheel was rotaing.) Is there a way to correct a bad recorded bike activity due to bad magnet position? Would you know if SRM will pick up the speed signals? Secondly, I will also lose my cadence reading that the foot pod would give me but this is not an issue for me. I’m headed to Paris – what do you recommend for training or sightseeing? The one drawback of a sensor is if the sensor fails for some reason the head units don’t switch back to GPS immediately, so you’ll lose some distance. I don’t remember seeing that before. The speed sensor worked fine. the one recently added. I have a S4 with ant+ built in. Timex has stopped firmware update and I read your post something to do with ANT+ datatype. I found it!!! What about city riding? First thing it does is look for sensors and satellites. Well that stinks, I guess its back to the drawing board. Hey RM – i have an old cateye CC-MC100W speed sensor that is magnetic sensored to front fork. I was planning on downloading the ipbike app. Any suggestions? Finally, one last thing to keep in mind is that not all Android apps support ANT+ (even if the hardware can), so it’s why I really like the dual-capable sensors, so it ensures you’ve got compatibility with everything. Vector, SRM, Quarq) I would expect a machine like this to have on board cadence measurement….. Do you know of anything that will give me what i’m looking for or will i have to fork out for a whole new kit, or perhaps just give up. That said, I do actually have some ROX 10 and 11 units, but it just hasn’t made it high enough past all the other requests for a detailed write-up. (not familiar with that stuff) I actually don’t know off-hand which category it falls in. You can check by looking for a ‘show system Apps’ (upper right corner triple dot) in the Application Manager called ANT or ANT+ or something to that effect. I’ve seen some pretty crazy stuff with GSC-10’s surviving, so my guess is that somehow the unit got a crack in it and then water got in somehow. My setup is the following if anyone is looking for something similar. Ray, you thought there would be more sensors coming out after this May 2014 article. But wait, are you a female and feel like these things might not apply to you? I just bought one and measured my tire by chalking it and measuring meticulously at exactly 91 inches or 2311mm. I have a forerunner 235 and would like to fit ANT+ sensors to be able to use the forerunner for cycling indoors. Now trying to figure out whether the Garmin 735Xt and/or 935 have sensor or profile specific sensor settings. do you know if I were to buy the new garmin speed and cadence unit would the speed feature work on my spin bike I have at home? The head units I’ve used (Edge 705, 800, Fenix, Epix) all can self calibrate from GPS data, but I don’t know how you force that to occur with any of them. When I try to pair just the cadence sensor with my 510 it still wants to connect my GSC combined speed/cadence and won’t connect my new wireless cadence sensor separately. I've found the powertap sensor to be very inaccurate in some edge cases. Hi, I’ve just bought a Minoura B60-R turbo trainer and would like to use it with Zwift. But for $40, it may be worth just experimenting and see what you can do. My speed sensor cut out one time after a light washing. Thanks DC! How to get rpm data displayed on a graph has got me buffaloed. Just a quick question. Well, companies like Wahoo and others have clearly stated they plan to deliver dual ANT+ & Bluetooth Smart sensors by the end of the year.  In fact, in checking with them yesterday, Wahoo will be shipping an updated version of their Wahoo RPM magnet-less sensor in just four weeks (same $49 price), which will be dual ANT+/Bluetooth Smart, and also include a new shoe clip (so you can easily wear it at the gym on spin or exercise bikes, etc…. I have to keep the Bluetooth on the whole ride or only pairing them once is enough? Please correct / delete the garmin edge 800……it only offers speed/ cadence sensor with one sensor ID. It could be for a code, but then it wasn’t busy trying to couple the cadence sensor but something else. But when I remove it and move it circularly, my fenix 3 reads the speed. Either way, the stakes are small. Wanna save some cash and support the site? The sensors are more accurate once the wheel size is calibrated, primarily because the error in consumer GPS is about 3 meters at best, while a typical wheel circumference is about 2 meters. I don’t know how to trigger a recalibration; there’s definitely no “recalibrate wheel size” selection on an 800. I might need to try Garmin ’ s not snug on the watch to handle above..
