Garmin Edge 820 GPS Computer - Performance Bundle
The much anticipated Garmin Edge 820 GPS Computer - Performance Bundle lives up to the hype with a bouquet of features that make it a comprehensive enhancement to your riding experience. The compact 2.3-inch screen does not clutter your handlebars and its capacity touch capabilities means it works even when you are using gloves and when the screen is wet. An ambient light sensor automatically adjusts the screen's brightness so it's easy to see at a glance whether it's glaring sunshine or the deep dark night.
Keep track of your fellow group riders with the new GroupTrack feature
Available at your fingertips, the Edge 820 offers a world of live and trackable data as well as neat new features like GroupTrack. When paired with a compatible smartphone, GroupTrack allows you to pair your device through Garmin Connect so you can keep track of your friends and ride partners out on the road. If you are looking to join up with your riding group en-route, GroupTrack allows you to easily keep track of a group of up to 50 other riders so you are never separated from the peloton.
Unparalleled data tracking and recording
The Garmin Edge 820 offers the most comprehensive suite of data points and tracking variables to date with compatibility with ANT+ sensors, including Garmin's Vector power pedal system. With the included premium heart rate monitor, you can gain access to a variety of physiological data including advanced cycling specific metrics like VO2 max and a recovery advisory. Standard data like max, average and current heart rate is also available so you can track your effort out on the road and when you get home.
Connect, share and compare
All of this data can be difficult to navigate so custom data fields allow you to customise the information you see and set different fields for different types of activities. Free custom data fields and apps are also available to download. When your ride is over all of this data can be fully analysed using the free Garmin Connect software, which allows you to keep track of how you perform.
Garmin Connect and a live connection to your smartphone whilst you are out on the ride also allows you to stay connected to the rest of the world with smart notifications, live tracking, social media sharing and automatic uploads to Garmin Connect and third-party services like Strava and Training Peaks. Strava integration does not end there. Live Strava segments allow you to keep track of your segment progress in real time and compare your effort against your friends, rivals and the cycling world at large.
Map your ride
GPS navigation still remains at the heart of the Edge experience.
