  • Garmin Edge 520 Cycle Computer

    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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product great price The Garmin 520 fulfils all expectations, ideal for cyclists. Some features require a little thought in setting up but that is to be expected. The service from Halfords was very good and the price comparable with the best

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Garmin upgrade Bought as an upgrade to my 200. This has loads more features..gradients, ant + (power meter, HRM) and wifi connectivity so you can pair it with mobile garmin connect. The price was also the cheapest around(£180) with another 10% reduction at the checkout. I don't claim to be a tech head but within an hour I had costomised the screens for race, train and indoor modes, connected a HRM and connected it to the garmin app on my phone( which can be downloaded quickly and easily). If you are not gadget minded there is plenty of help online on how to set it up and once you have it is very straightforward. Looking forward to getting some good use out of this great little computer.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Returned We bought this a few weeks ago as we wanted a sat nav for bike rides. Although it was meant to have this feature, we started on the bike ride and it found our route. However about 10 mins in to the ride, it the just said "off course" although we hadn't turned off the route. The signal for the satellite said it was full. It didn't do the one thing we wanted it for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Strava! I bought this because I was having software problems with my old 510. Garmin had offered to replace it for a nominal fee but I was impressed with what I had read about the 520 and extra functions, particularly its integration with Strava so I decided to splurge on the Garmin Edge 520. I wasn't disappointed and am really happy I made the upgrade. First, set up was a breeze. I just added it to my account and pairing with my old heart rate monitor and speed/cadence sensor seemed to happen without me doing anything. I also added my Garmin lights which the 520 controls nicely. Although the new button and screen arrangement took a little getting used to it is already much easier to use because the buttons are easier to press (also a bonus when switching screens during the ride). In addition, the bluetooth link to my iPhone seems to work much better than the 510 ever did and the GPS seems quick and secure. I have only done three rides so far all early morning and in the dark and cold and believe me this new Garmin really helps with motivation. First, with the backlight on 80% the 520 screen is really easy to see and the colour is smart! I haven't added Strava live segments yet but this is something I look forward to doing. Also, with the phone paired you can rest assured you haven't missed a call and it tells me when my light batteries are low. Finally, at the end of the ride you get immediate feedback on any new records (for the device!) and can check the ride summary. Even though I switch it off soon after pressing "save ride" it has already uploaded to Garmin and Strava! (Though you must set this up beforehand if you are new to Garmin.) I have yet to using mapping but nice to know this has been added too. All in all, if you are a Strava and iPhone user and especially if you have Ant+sensors and Garmin lights you will love the 520. Just short of 200 quid at Halfords seemed great value for something I will enjoy daily and much cheaper than the Edge 1000 which is less geared to Strava users. If Strava doesn't interest you, map functions are more important, you prefer touch screens or you have bluetooth sensors you probably would want a different model or brand.
