Finally, a tool as vital as your bike itself. It will change the way you view riding by showing you your strengths, your weaknesses, where you're going, and where you've been. The sleek, slim Garmin Edge 500 is ideal for the avid racer and weekend warrior alike—it displays data such as speed, distance, cadence, and heart rate, and it's compatible with ANT+ power meters (sold separately), giving you the key to unlock your hidden potential. It's GPS-enabled, allowing you to download and analyze training files on programs like Garmin Connect and Strava. Get the most out of your valuable ride time with the Edge 500.
This is a great computer. Has over 40 different metrics which can be customized to show up to 8 per screen on 3 screens you can cycle through. Great to race against the "virtual rider". You can also upload turn by turn directions for routes created on some online mapping sites. I HIGHLY recommend this computer.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
