“The Edge 530 and Edge 830 include new and updated features that are
designed for all riders – whether you’re a podium finisher, gravel
grinder, urban pedaler or somewhere in between,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin
vice president of global consumer sales. “Offering new ride data and
guidance, navigational enhancements, safety and tracking features and
more, you can truly find your Edge, only from Garmin.”

During a ride, the Edge 530 and Edge 830 use vital ride data to provide
dynamic performance insights and guidance that can help cyclists improve
and manage their effort. The new ClimbPro feature automatically shows
the remaining ascent and grade for each climb while following a route or
course, helping cyclists to gauge their effort over the rest of their
ride. The new Edge cycling computers will also allow riders to see how
their body is holding up in different environments with heat and
altitude acclimation2 and receive in-ride notifications when
it’s time to refuel or rehydrate. Outside of a ride, the Edge 530 and
Edge 830 will show the previous four weeks of riding broken down in
terms of low aerobic, high aerobic and anaerobic efforts to evaluate how
balanced a rider’s training is and provide them with insight into where
they need additional focus. When paired with compatible sensors, the
Edge 530 and Edge 830 will calculate a rider’s power curve, comparing
their ride effort to their previous weeks and months. For cyclists
following a training plan, they can sync workouts automatically from
Garmin Connect™ and TrainingPeaks right to their Edge and view workouts
for the upcoming week before seamlessly starting their training session.

Preloaded on the Edge 530 and Edge 830, the Garmin Cycle Map includes
turn-by-turn navigation and navigation alerts that notify riders of
sharp curves ahead. What’s more, the Edge 830 allows cyclists to create
new rides and courses right on their device. To help Edge 530 and Edge
830 users ride like a local, popularity routing chooses from the best
road, mountain or gravel routes most traveled by fellow cyclists. It
will even guide cyclists back to the route – or back to start – if they
stray away or decide to head home early. Now, cyclists using the Edge
530 or Edge 830 will spend more time riding, not waiting around, thanks
to route calculation speeds that are two times faster than on previous
models.

For riders searching for their next adventure, the Edge 530 and Edge 830
are great companions for mountain biking. The mountain bike models come
preloaded with data from Trailforks built right into the Garmin Cycle
Map, including detailed maps of trails from more than 80 countries,
complete with trail ratings. Riders will be able to view the trails in
detail right on their Edge device, which will help them find the trails
best suited to their skill level. When a cyclist stops mid-ride,
Forksight mode automatically displays upcoming forks in the trail and
shows them where they are within a trail network. During their ride, the
Edge 530 and Edge 830 will track all the epic details with new mountain
biking metrics such as jump count, jump distance and hang time. Other
mountain biking features include Grit, which rates the difficulty of a
ride using GPS, elevation and accelerometer data, and Flow, which
measures how smoothly a cyclist descends a trail.

Whether commuting to work or out riding with friends, built-in safety
and tracking features1 on the Edge 530 and Edge 830 will help
provide extra peace of mind while on the move. Group messaging and
tracking lets cyclists stay in touch when they get separated from the
pack3. Built-in incident detectionwill
automatically send a cyclist’s location to emergency contacts if they
run into trouble. For added confidence, the Edge 530 and Edge 830 are
compatible with the Varia™ line of cycling awareness devices, including
the RTL510
rearview radar
and UT800
smart headlight
so riders can see and be seen. If a cyclist stops to
grab a bite to eat or take in the view, the new PIN-protected bike alarm
will notify them on their smartphone if their bike has been moved.

Only Garmin lets users customize their device with free apps, widgets
and data fields from the Connect
IQ store
. Use the AccuWeather
MinuteCast
app to find out when the rain will start, or use the Yelp
app to download locations of a nearby café or bike shop, and route
directly to them on the Edge 530 or Edge 830. For cyclists who plan
their rides ahead of time, downloading the Strava
Summit
, Komoot
or Wikiloc
apps allows for those favorite routes to be imported directly to an Edge
device.

Featuring up to 20 hours of battery life with GPS, the Edge 530 and Edge
830 will be available in May and come in different bundle options
ranging in price from $299.99 to $499.99. To learn more, visit www.garmin.com.
