Hi All,

Going to buy a Garmin 810 this week when I can catch amazon's prices at the right time as they seem to change every day.

My question is, can I use any HRM and cadence sensor as long as they are both ANT+? If so, can anybody recommend if it's worth doing this to save money over Garmin products? Or should I stick with Garmin and stop being a cheap skate?

Thanks in advance,

    Any ant+ should be fine. Worth it? probably not if you are getting the bundle from Garmin. The bundle price to add sensors is normally less than the cost of sensors.

    I don't know if Garmin are doing the no magnet sensors in the bundles though.

    +1 for Handtec. Best prices around. Recent firmware upgrade from Garmin brings the 810 many features of the 1000. :D

    I must admit I didn't look - what has been added?
