Examine your ride
Socrates would have loved Garmin's Edge 530 cycling computer. If the unexamined life isn't worth living, why shouldn't you also know everything there is to know about your latest bike ride as well? Edge 530 offers the high-performance features you need for serious training, with sophisticated tools to provide the metrics you need to really improve. You can customize the screen to display the info that's important to you when you ride, so you'll always have the metrics you need right in front of you.
Plenty of options
The Edge 530 works with all ANT+-enabled power meters (not included) so you can track your power output in watts when you ride — one of the most effective training methods available. And when it's paired with a heart rate monitor (not included), the Edge 530 tracks your heart rate, letting you train in the proper heart-rate zone to optimize your workout. Check out this sensor bundle to buy the Edge 530 along with a heart-rate monitor and other training sensors.
Edge 530 also taps into the power of your smartphone through the Garmin Connect™ Mobile app. Features like live tracking, social media sharing, weather, and more are ready to access before, during, and after your ride. In conjunction with a compatible smartphone, you can even message to other riders in your group when you're on the road. And when you're out on a long ride or race, your friends and family can follow your progress on Garmin Connect with real-time map updates.
This versatile device is compatible with Strava live segments, so you can track your progress while you're riding on your favorite climbs and fly zones. You'll receive alerts when the segments start and finish, and even instant leaderboard rankings once you've finished the segment.
Know where you are
When I first started riding the roads around Charlottesville, finding good routes meant consulting cycling club guidebooks and tagging along with lots of group rides. Edge 530 has Garmin's Cycle Map preloaded so you can create courses with turn-by-turn directions for both on- and off-road adventures. During your ride, its high-sensitivity GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo receiver records speed, distance, time, plus ascent and descent, while a built-in barometric altimeter yields precise elevation measurements. And with Garmin's ClimbPro feature, you'll always know how much longer you've got to go on those epic climbs.
Stay safe and aware
Edge 530 is fully compatible with Garmin's Varia smart lights and rear-view radar, ensuring that you'll know what's happening on the road around you and that drivers are aware of your presence. Don't worry about showers — you can quickly scope out threatening weather conditions on the Edge 530's water-resistant color display while leaving your smartphone safe and dry in your pocket or jacket.
