    Garmin Edge 500 Cycling GPS Based Computer

    Garmin’s Edge 500 is a lightweight GPS-Based cycling computer that calculates everything including speed, distance, calories burned, altitude, climb, and descent. While monitoring, it also records this information for comparison purposes, which trainers can access on their home computer through Garmin’s course feature.

    The device attaches easily to the stem or handlebars of your bike, and, thanks to it’s low profile, minimally impacts drag. Removing the Edge from the mount just involves a simple quarter-turn. Sharing your results with fellow bikers through the Garmin Connect community is another neat feature.

    You can get your hands on the Garmin Edge 500 now. For an extra $100, Garmin will include a compatible Heart Rate and Cadence monitor.  (
