    The Garmin Edge 520 is a powerful GPS enable cycle computer packed with performance enhancing features. With the 520 you can analyse every part of your ride performance to spot strengths and weaknesses in your fitness and skills.

    Contained are some impressive new features that current Edge models don’t feature. Integration with Strava live allows you to receive segments sent directly from Strava to your display. Compete for a King of the Mountain, beat a personal best or thrash your mates.

    Pair the Garmin Edge 520 with a power meter and heart rate monitor and the computer will report your VO2 max and recovery time data. Pair with Garmin Vector pedals and you can see the comparative power through each pedal.

    One of the best new features is the ability to pair the Garmin Edge 520 with an ANT+ turbo trainer. On those long winter months you can train with your computer synched up to the turbo to control the resistance or select specific workouts based on your training needs. The turbo will automatically make the adjustments as you ride.

    These features along with a long 15 hour battery life, optimised high res colour display and large range of data points make the Garmin Edge 520 the all purpose cycle computer.

    Garmin Edge 520 GPS key features:

    • Offers in-ride challenges through Strava live segments

    • Reports cycling-specific VO2 max and recovery time when used with power and heart rate

    • Pairs with compatible ANT+® indoor trainers for data display and control

    • Tracks Functional Threshold Power (FTP), watts/kg and cycling dynamics when used with Vector™ or Vector 2 power meters

    • Connected features¹: automatic uploads, live tracking, smart notifications, send/receive courses, social media sharing, weather

    Strava live segments integration

    • The Garmin Edge 520 is the first bike computer compatible with Strava live segments

    • 3-month trail of Strava Premium

    • Starred Strava segments automatically sync with the 520 for live feedback during your ride

    • You get alerts for segment start and finish and leaderboard rankings once you complete the segment

    Turbo trainer connectivity

    • Pair your 520 with a compatible ANT+ indoor turbo trainer for a suite of training capabilities

    • Set training targets and start pedalling, the trainer will automatically adjust to keep you at your target while the 520 shows your stats

    • Challenge yourself to a course that you or another rider has created and the trainer will adjust resistance to match the elevation profile

    Power meter features

    • FTP and watts/kg tracking lets you compare yourself to others as well as cycling dynamics

    • A built in FTP test helps you establish your baseline either on the road or on your trainer

    • Add heart rate data and the 520 can derive your VO2 max estimate and post-ride recovery time, which indicates how long before you should attempt another hard effort

    Optimised display

    • 2.3 inch high resolution display

    • Screen clarity in all lighting conditions

    ANT+ compatible

    The Edge 520 is compatible with ANT+ sensors including:

    • Varia™ bike radar and lights

    • Speed, cadence and heart rate

    • Edge + VIRB remotes and compatible weight scales

    The Edge also integrates with Shimano DI2 to display your current gear on the screen. The Edge 520 is also compatible with ANT+ power meters including Vector series.

    Smartphone connectivity

    When paired with your compatible phone and the Garmin Connect™ Mobile app, Edge 520 offers live tracking, smartphone alerts, social media sharing, weather and wireless uploads.

    Once your ride is complete, the data can be automatically sent to Garmin Connect™ where you can save, plan and share your rides.

    First Garmin product, fairly impressed

    The Garmin 520 sits strongly and attractively on its mount at the head of my bike. It gives you all the info you need, and I'd stress the point you need a power meter and heart rate monitor/cadence sensor to make it really worth using as a training tool. One negative is how tricky it is to set up strava live segments, because you need to do some real research into how to set it up - there are no clear instructions that come with the Unit. That said, once you have it working, its very motivational and definitely gets you out on the bike a lot more!

    1st Garmin

    This is the 1st Garmin i have owned, been on a few rides and has reset once on a 3 hour ride but apart from that its very useful to see all the data and even a map. Like the strava segments as it helps push you that little bit more if you're a few seconds off a PB
