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.
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. Edge 500 features a high-sensitivity GPS receiver with HotFix satellite prediction to calculate your position faster.
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.
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.
You have logged the miles, now it's time to review, replay and share your ride. Just upload your data to Garmin Connect -- Garmin's website for free data analysis and sharing. You can upload from your PC or Mac using a USB cable. At Garmin Connect, you can see your route on a map, view a summary of your ride, create goals and share rides and data with others.

Great unit. Lasts much longer than a mobile phone app and captures so much more info. Downloads easy, once you get it all set up. Cannot do without it now!Published 1 day ago by Allan R. Mc. Schoenherr
Good GPS unit. I bough this relatively cheap £119 for my wife to use the heart monitor function while we are out cycling and having set it up it all works well. Read morePublished 2 days ago by Richb
The Garmin 500's seem to be forever going wrong. I've had mine replaced a couple of times and it still doesn't work properly.Published 14 days ago by David Smith
