  • 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 4.9 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by All the info you need. Great little cycle computer that takes some time to set up because of all the options. Once that's done it tells you everything you need to know clearly and legibly. Connects to your smartphone easily but if you get a software update you will have to connect again. Garmin Connect is a great App for viewing your ride data or you can see it all online. Excellent out front mount included as well. 27 September 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by This Edge adds a New Edge! Finally tempted into the world of cycle GPS by the Garmin Edge 520. Initially I just wanted something just a bit better than the old cycle computer but the more I read up on GPS, the more I wanted to own one. Initially I looked at the cheap ones and the second hand market and quickly decided that Garmin was the way to go and I was not disapointed. I chose the 520 for the Strava live segment compatability and it is worth the price tag for that alone. No maps as such but all the other funtions you require are here, speed, average speed, temperature, compass,time, compatability with heart rate, cadence add ons, reqular updates, personalised apps and more! Also easy to download ride info to PC or Srava. This is not a toy for the non technical minded as it takes a bit to understand and get used to the buttons (only downside is no touchscreen and a bit hard to switch between screens when riding) I would happily recommend one of these to any off road / touring cyclist. 14 September 2016
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Garmin Edge 520 A good starting garmin, does what it says on the tin, maps could be better but then you could get the 810 28 August 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bit of kit - a bit pricey maybe Great bit of kit, loads of functions which I have yet to get my head around, but all the usual metrics are readily useable out of the box. Paired with the Garmin Connect app and then Strava for a free premium upgrade trial makes for a welcome addition. Easily pairs with HR and cadence monitor and phone. Its used by the Pro UCI teams so must be good and it's certainly a lot cheaper than one of their bikes but it's still quite expensive for what it is in my opinion. 26 July 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Good upgrade Upgraded from edge 25 to this and really pleased I did. Strava segments are addictive and let's you train against yor personal best or somebody that you are following on strata. It shows how many seconds they are in front or behind, tells you if they've finished and gives you a visual indication on the map, really good trainer. Wealth of information on the screen, courses can be dragged and dropped into new files location and base maps can be upgraded easily, just follow dc rainmakers guide. From a training point, I found myself pushing harder to try and beat my pb or get a kom. Glad I upgraded over the 25, which was ok for basic information but nothing compared to this. If your pondering over buying, do it, doubt you'll regret it . 24 July 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Edge 520 I bought the 520 as an upgrade from my 500 and I am really impressed. The screen is great along with the features , though the strava live is a bit too addictive!!!! Really pleased I bought this device. 16 July 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Garmin 520 Great product, crewe staff have been amazing. I have bought a lot from the crewe store. Chris who I deal with a lot is a credit to Halfords. Great team. 13 July 2016
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything you need. Quality product from Garmin. Perfect size for mountain or roadies and it mounts easily with both fittings. Bought for a gift for my wife who fancied knowing distances on her rides and she is still a novice but has been riding much more the past few months which is the key part ride the bike and this little gem gives you so many different features for any level of rider. Top quality Garmin and definitely adds extra oomph to the riding. 16 June 2016
