GARMIN FENIX 5 IS BETTER FOR CYCLIST’S

In many ways, Garmin gave fenix 5 models some serious “Edge” if you get my drift, by creating compatibility with the Varia Bi

ke Light and Radar series, a connection that up until now has been limited to Edge Bike computers and just a few other watch models (the 735XT, fenix Chronos, and Vivoactive HR to be exact). fenix 5 watches also support Shimano Di2 Shifting and ANT+ Gear Shifting, plus FTP Estimation and Strava Live Segment (Bike + Run).

This is a big feature for me and could be for many that want to just have one device for multiple activities when you have a range of Garmin products like the Varia light radar.
