    The Garmin Edge 520 Cycle Computer is the first device with Strava live segment challenges. This aerodynamic GPS bike computer is packed with advanced analysis features like time in zone, cycling-specific VO2 max and recovery time (when used with a power meter and heart rate monitor). It has a 2.3” high resolution colour display, providing great visibility in all lighting conditions, in a lightweight compact device. When paired with your compatible smartphone (Android 4.3 and above and iphone 4S and later) and the Garmin Connect™ Mobile app, Edge 520 offers live tracking, smartphone notifications (allowing you to receive text and call notifications while riding), social media sharing, weather updates and automatic wireless uploads. Once your ride is complete, the data can be automatically sent to Garmin Connect™, Garmin’s online community where you can analyse post-ride stats, including cycling dynamics and save, plan and share your rides.

  • Garmin Edge 520 Cycle Computer is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 45.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Bike Computer Now that I have used it a few times and still learning all the functions I feel I can say that the Garmin 520 is a good piece of kit. There has been some dubious recordings linked with Strava so I would say don't rule your life depending on Strava. I wish I got the one with maps but this GPS unit does all my needs. Came with two mounts which suited me one for each bike It remains sturdy in the mounts provided even over very rough terrain. I used my British Cycling Card to get some discount. Helpful staff gave me a demo a few days earlier which influenced my decision to buy the Garmin 520

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect training, not for exploring. Brilliant, GPS unit, clear screen, I have just four fields for visual ease at speed. All metrics are covered, power, cadence, heart, speed, each field can be view in multiple ways over several pages. It's an idea device for training, it has maps and can follow a breadcrumb trail with turn by turn guidance, just note it doesn't navigate, it can only follow the route you upload to it. The buttons are much friendly than a touch screen with winter gloves on, menus are intuitive and famiiar with other Garmin devices. Perfect device for training when paired with Connect, Strava and others, def recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart technology on the move. This Garmin Edge in my eyes is the perfect size, not too big and cumbersome but packed full of features sumilisr to it’s big brothers. Still learning the features that come with it but I wished I bought the sensors with it but due to the costs I could only get the basic setup. Not disappointed with the Edge 520

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Garmin Edge 520 I purchased the Garmin Edge 520 to get an accurate reading of my speed, time, distance covered, and gradients climbed without having to try and look at my watch to see what was going on. This cycling computer is an excellent addition to the bicycle, easily installed, it's light, the display is clear and everything i need to see is right in front of me, all the time. One small niggle is the sync function with Strava, there seems to be a discrepancy on average speed of about 0.2 miles per hour, so maybe Garmin and Strava could get together and get this sorted out. Overall, an excellent item, would recommend to any cyclist who needs to see their stats at a glance.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Garmin 520 I previously owned a Garmin 500 which was solid and reliable,so I decided to upgrade to a Garmin 520. It has all the features of the 500 and a few more, like Ride Summary when you stop the timer,Lap times display, elevation chart, and map of your ride. In addition I bought a rubber saver and screen protector in case of an accident happening. In the box are two handlebar mounts, one for the Handlebars (out front style) and one with rubber bands for the stem. If you have had Garmins previously this is a breeze to set up. Only downside is I have a Barfly bar mount so access to the timebutton (which is at the bottom) is difficult to turn on without untwisting the 520.
