Garmin/Cateye Compatibility

Looking to purchase a Garmin Edge 500 to replace my Cateye V2C but wonder if I need the whole bundle.

Reason being that I've already got a cadence sensor which came with the Cateye and a separate Decathlon heart rate monitor (CW300 Kalenji).

Question is are either of these devices compatible with the Garmin, or has anyone had any experience of mixing and matching?

Many thanks

    Not with Cateye but I've had a Holux (which is ANT+) for some time and just got a Garmin 500. I've successfully paired and used both the old Holux HRM and Cadence Sensor with the Garmin.
    No idea if the Cateye is ANT+ but if it is, it should work OK.

    The Cateye isn't ANT+ so it's a no-go
    And the people bowed and prayed, to the neon god they made.

    Thanks NeXXus, that's the end of that then, at least I now know.
