Garmin Edge 500 Bike GPS with Heart Rate Monitor and Cadence Sensor
Sharpen your cycling performance with Edge 500, a lightweight GPS-based cycling computer for performance-driven riders. Loaded with data, Edge 500 tracks your distance, speed, location, and elevation with high sensitivity GPS. With the ANT+ compatible heart rate monitor and speed/cadence sensor you get a finely-tuned analysis of your ride. You can also add a third-party ANT+ power meter for more data on your performance.
Jump Start Your Training
The Edge 500 attaches easily to the stem or handlebars of your bike with a quarter turn with the low-profile bike mount. When you're ready to ride, just power on your Edge, acquire GPS satellites and go.

Get the Data You Need
During your ride, Edge 500 measures your speed, distance, time, calories burned, altitude, climb and descent, as well as cadence, and records this data for your review. For extra-precise climb and descent data, Edge 500 incorporates a barometric altimeter to pinpoint changes in elevation.
Edge 500 works with third-party ANT+ enabled power meters to display your power output in watts as you ride. This valuable data shows you how hard you're working, regardless of conditions affecting your ride, so you can train smarter.
Other training includes the Courses feature, which helps you compare successive rides over the same route, as well as Auto Pause, Auto Lap and temperature readings. Edge also alerts you if you're moving but the timer is not running.
Track Your Heart Rate
Pair your Edge with the included Garmin heart rate monitor and track your heart beats per minute. Your heart rate is also used for advanced calorie computation, so you know how many calories you're burning. Train in a certain heart-rate zone to improve your fitness level or compare your pace and heart rate to past performance.
