Sharpen your cycling performance with Garmin Edge 500 Cycling Computer Bundle
with Heart Rate and Cadence, a lightweight GPS-based bike computer for
performance-driven cyclists. Loaded with data, the Edge 500 tracks your
distance, speed, location and elevation with high sensitivity GPS. Add an ANT+™
compatible heart rate monitor, speed/cadence sensor or compatible power meter
for a finely-tuned analysis of your ride.
Jumpstart Your Training -
Edge 500 attaches easily to the stem or handlebars of your bike with its
low-profile bike mount. The Edge attaches easily to the mount with a simple
quarter-turn. When you're ready to ride, just power on your Edge, acquire GPS
satellites and go. The Edge 500 features a high-sensitivity GPS receiver with
HotFix® satellite prediction to calculate your position faster.
The Data You Need -
During your ride, the Edge 500 measures your speed, distance, time, calories
burned, altitude, climb and descent, and records this data for your review. For
extra-precise climb and descent data, the Edge 500 also incorporates a
barometric altimeter to pinpoint changes in elevation.
Edge 500 versions work with third-party ANT+-enabled power meters to display
your power output in watts as you ride. This valuable data shows you how hard
you're working, regardless of conditions affecting your ride, so you can train
smarter. This version also ships with a digital heart rate monitor and cadence
Other helpful training features include a Courses feature, which helps you
compare successive rides over the same route, as well as Auto Pause, Auto Lap
and temperature readings. Edge also alerts you if you’re moving, but the timer
is not running.
Track Your Heart Rate -
When paired with a Garmin heart rate monitor, the Edge 500 tracks heart beats
per minute and uses your heart rate for advanced calorie computation, so you
know how many calories you're burning. Train in a certain heart-rate zone to
improve your fitness level or compare your pace and heart rate to past
performance over the same ride.
Analyze Your Ride
- Once your ride’s done, connect the Edge 500 to your computer with the included
USB cable to analyze your performance. With a simple click, you can join a
worldwide network of cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts through Garmin Connect™, a
one-stop site for data analysis and sharing.
