Garmin Edge 530 GPS Bike Computer
The Garmin Edge 530 GPS Bike Computer really is at the edge of innovation when it comes to advanced bike computer technology. The best selling Edge 520 has been upgraded and improved across the board. The Edge 530 offers dynamic performance monitoring and insights to help take your bike riding to the next level. The improved processor makes it twice as fast as its predecessor, with an increased battery life of 20 hours and a 13% larger display. The Edge 530 is packed full of new features to enhance your riding and training, starting with performance focused metrics such as VO2 Max, recovery time, training status/load with new training load focus, Heat/Altitude Acclimation status and smart nutrition/hydration tracking. The new Climbpro feature allows you to see the remaining grade and ascent when climbing, while mountain bikers are well looked after with new Mountain Bike Dynamics tracking your jumps and descents, while Forksight will automatically display upcoming forks in the trail when you pause, to give you at a glance context of where you are in the trail network. These features really are great for mountain biking, making the Edge 530 a real option for both the road and the trails.
On top of these great features for riding, Garmin have done their best to make the Edge 530 practical and easy to use. Adding a Find My Edge feature that allows you to find your device should it come off in a crash and a bike alarm that will detect if your bike is being moved while you're away from it. You'll still get the same great Garmin features, with GPS, GLONASS and Galileo support giving you accurate location data, as well as preloaded Garmin Maps and improved off road navigation with trail specific content from TrailForks.
