This case is an official Garmin accessory for the Edge 800. As you'd expect with an official product, it's snug fit to the 800 and doesn't get in the way of using the buttons or the touch-screen. It also doesn't cover the USB and microSD slots so these are still esily accessible.

It's made of thin matt-black silicone rubber which is is a bit "grippier" than the bare case - especially when wet. While the thinness of the material keeps the weight down (for those weight-conscious cyclists), I don't expect it to afford that much protection from drops etc. Equally, the touch-screen nature of the Edge 800 means that the silicone cover mostly protects the sides and back of the device. Considering that the unit should spend most of it's time clipped to your handlebars which will protect the back and sides of the device anyway, the actual level of protection offered is minimal.

Additionally, if you're interested in tracking elevation/climbing and it happens to rain, thre's a chance that the case will collect enough water to interfere with the port used by the barometer to gauge air pressure and derive altitude. This leads to very slow and inaccurate reporting of current gradient and increases the overall margin of error for altitude for the ride meaing you should probably enable Garmin's altitude correction in Garmin Connect to get an accurate total.

While it does a reasonable job of what it's supposed to do, it's not really a job worth doing - the Edge 800 is weatherproof out of the box and this case doesn't materially improve on that. If you've got a fiver to spare, my advice would be to buy some decent anti-glare scrteen protectors for your Edge 800 rather than the silicone case.

An excellent product does exactly what it says on the tin, protects my very expensive Garmin Edge 800 from minor bumps and scratches.
Lets face it the edge 800 is an expensive unit and its well worth spending a few more pounds protecting it.

BOUGHT THE GARMIN EDGE 200 AND THIS AS A PACKAGE RECOMMENDED BY AMAZON. THE CASE IS FAR TOO BIG TO FIT THE EDGE 200 AS IT IS DESIGNED FOR THE 800 MODEL. AMAZON DID REFUND THE COST OF THE CASE AND DID NOT REQUIRE ME TO RETURN IT, SO HAPPY WITH AMAZON RESPONSE, BUT THE CASE SHOULD NO BE SOLD WITH THE EDGE 200. I ACCEPT THAT THIS IS MAY BE A ONE OFF ALL OTHER DEALINGS WITH AMAZON HAVE BEEN EXCELLENT.

Fits perfectly, still easy to push buttons, so far so good. Little bit thin to give a full protection in case of hit the ground though.

Not the tightest fit but OK for the price and delivered quickly to my front door without charge on super saver delivery, what more can you ask for? The alternative is to find the nearest retailer, locate a parking place if you’re lucky, struggle through the crowds to pay twice the price, then discover it is out of stock and has to be ordered, then have to repeat the process a week later. The high street is dead and should be flattened for redevelopment. Good luck to Amazon as long as they pay their taxes!

Nice little cover that gives protection to my expensive Edge 800. When it's wet I turn my cover around so that the ports at the rear of the 800 are covered. This helps prevent the ingress of water into the port for the data lead. I have had to replace 2 x Edge 800's probably due to getting water into them, so I hope this may solve that problem

This came as part of a bundled package - People who bought ** also bought **. I should have looked to see it fitted another Garmin product and was therefore unsuitable. I can only presume it would have fitted OK, then it would be fine.

This very thin silicone case offers little real protection for the Garmin 800. I was hoping of something a little thicker to remove the possibility of damage in the event of a stack up. This would not give any protection. Its ok if all you want to do is make you Garmin look black.

Makes me feel more confident against bashes, but no protection for the ports. If it's raining heavily I rotate the case upside down. Have tried threading a retaining string through as the GPS unit has knocked and nearly twisted off the mount on occasion.
