First impressions: This is a very tiny unit, which has both pros and cons. It's very lightweight, but not much data is displayed during a ride. Specifically, you have only 2 data pages, and there are 3 fields on page 1 and 2 fields on page 2. You can customize the fields, but you can't add any more. I really wish they had more fields, or more pages.
In terms of GPS performance, the unit acquires satellites super quickly, within a second of turning on the unit, even when indoors. This is far better than the Edge 500, which took many seconds to acquire, and had to be used outdoors. The Edge 25 has GLONASS, but it didn't come enabled by default. I turned that on in the settings. Some people also mentioned that the unit only supports a "smart" recording interval instead of the 1-second interval available on higher-end units. In my test ride, the accuracy seemed pretty good, and I didn't see any skipped points.
The Edge 25 also lacks a barometric altimeter. Instead, it uses GPS to tell you your total ascent. The displayed total ascent by the end of my ride was close enough. It cannot tell you the grade of the current hill, our your VAM, so for those you'll need to upgrade to a 500/510/520 unit.
One of the great things about this unit versus the Edge 500 is the Bluetooth connection for automatic uploads to Garmin Connect and Strava when you finish your ride. You need the Garmin Connect app on your phone, and after your ride, it should sync up automatically. For me, I needed to toggle my iPhone's Bluetooth setting off and on to get it to sync, but it worked pretty well.
Update Aug 13, 2015: I tested out the courses feature and I like what I see. To get a route onto the device, you first have to create a route on Garmin Connect on your computer. Then, you can transfer it wirelessly to the Edge using the app on your phone. If you start a ride with the course mode, you'll get two new pages (in addition to the existing two data pages). The first new page is a map. The Edge 25 doesn't have a basemap, so this map just displays your position and the outline of your course. Even though there was no basemap, it was very readable and very clear. The second new page displays your distance to the end of the course, and how much you're ahead or behind the "virtual rider". This virtual rider was pretty useless though, as Garmin Connect comes up with the longest estimates for how long it takes to finish a course. During the ride, the device will beep and display a distance countdown (1000 ft, 500 ft, etc) when there is a turn. You can be on any page to receive these alerts. Overall, I'm a fan of the course navigation feature.
A minor nice feature I also discovered was the call notifications. I got a few phone calls during a ride, and the device displayed the Caller ID so I could decide whether to stop and pick up the call.
Things I didn't test: ANT+ connectivity for speed/cadence/HR.
+ Very small and light
+ Bluetooth upload to Garmin Connect and Strava
+ GPS seems pretty accurate
+ Turn-by-turn course directions
+ Phone call Caller ID
- Only 5 data fields
- No grade percent or VAM
I have owned this Garmin Edge 25 for about two months and it has worked perfectly. It did flake out a little on me after one of the software updates but after I reloaded the software again, it was good to go.
The unit is the same size as a wrist watch but a little bit thicker. I'm sure this model is an adaptation of Garmin's wristwatch models for runners. (That adaptation probably explains the one mile and five mile lap function which is not useful to a cyclist because no one rides precisely those distances but seems useful to runners.)
The screen is very easy to read. You can flip between a clock, a 2-line data screen, 3-line data screen, a very rough map when you reload and follow a course, pacing for the preloaded course and heart rate functions if you buy the optional heart rate sensor as well as cadence sensor. (I did not buy those.) There is a beep when you flip between screens (which you can shut off) and the buttons are large enough that even a gloved finger can press them. Plus the button give you a tactile response when you click them.
The unit is very accurate in recording GPS. In addition to using American GPS, it also uses Russian GLONASS if you turn it on in the setup. There have been no problems with the data uploaded to Strava and Garmin Connect. It seems to have no problem matching me up with Strava segments although I rarely pay attention to them.
It was very simple to setup and configure this unit. It usually acquires the GPS satellites immediately after it is powered up.
If you turn on the Bluetooth, the unit will automatically upload to Garmin and Strava at the end of the ride by using the Garmin app on your smartphone. The Bluetooth also will display caller ID and text message alerts from your cell phone. The Bluetooth function also allows friends and family to know your location while you are riding if you send them an invite to do so. Great for letting your spouse know where you are or if you want to meet up with someone while you are out riding.
The battery seems more than sufficient for the average bike ride of 1 to 3 hours. I ran my for 9 hours one day with no problem. If you ride longer than that, you may want to consider another solution.
It charges with a USB plug that plugs into your computer. It does not have a standard USB style jack on the GPS side but it does have special contacts. I think it was developed this way to prevent dirt and moisture from getting in the unit and to save on size and weight.
This unit is not for the needless data nerd or the geek that wants a tablet sized computer to show a color map on their handlebars. I carry a smartphone in my bike jersey pocket and I can always pull that out if I need to look something up on a map or get directions. I noticed Google maps will give an auditory direction without the screen on, if needed. Pop in an earphone and Google lady can tell me when I need to turn. No need to carry another $500 computer on my handlebars.
I am very happy with this computer and I plan on using it for many years to come.
It is easy to install and fairly intuitive to install, set up and use. No wires and easy pairing with cadence and speed sensors. Be aware that, unless you get a "bundle," the Edge 25 does not come with a speed sensor or a cadence sensor. Without the sensors, distance and speed are via GPS only, which isn't particularly useful for most people
I bought a cadence and speed sensor along with the base unit and am happy with the purchase.
