The Garmin Edge 500 is built for ultimate performance for any cyclist. Tracking speed, distance, temperature, and elevation, you will have current, up-to-date information on the handlebar or stem of your bike. Lightweight, compact design makes for easy mounting on the handlebars of a bicycle so it doesn’t take up much room at all, and certainly won’t weigh you down as you ride.
Useful Information at Your Fingers
By adding the heart rate monitor to the Edge 500, you will be able to track your heart beats per minute and show how many calories you are burning during your trip. This useful information can help you so you can train in a certain heart rate zone to improve fitness levels. Use the barometric altimeter to receive grade information so that you can track your climb and descent (% incline or decline) data right on the screen of the 500 Edge. No matter if you’re out for a long cross country ride, a short city ride, or on an off-road ride, you will have faster satellite calculations, thanks to the Hot-Fix technology GPS receiver. Because the Garmin Edge 500 is GPS based, you will be able to save and store your tracks to view on the computer later. Using the Garmin Connect you will be able to analyze your ride, and share your information and see other cyclists information just by joining the Garmin Connect Community, and hooking the Edge 500 to the computer. Make the Garmin Edge 500 an addition for your next biking adventure.
