Compact. Color. Connected. The new Garmin Edge 520 boasts all of these alliterative features and benefits (and a whole lot more), making it stand out as the one must-have piece of technology for 2016. By bringing the full-color display of the Edge 1000 to the aerodynamic shape and size of the Edge 500, as well as adding connectivity features such as Strava live segments and smart notifications, Garmin has created the ultimate riding companion.
What does this mean for you? It means that you can be connected to Strava in real-time, receiving live feedback as you ride. It means that you can see smartphone alerts without digging around in your jersey pocket, and it means that you can share your latest accomplishments directly to your social media. It means that you can know everything, from your cycling-specific VO2 max and recovery time to the current weather conditions - all through the right-sized, won’t-break-the-bank Garmin Edge 520.
And, more good news for your winter training - the Edge 520 is compatible with ANT+ indoor trainers, and can provide you with a host of stimulating training capabilities while you log those potentially monotonous winter miles. If you’re looking for a single piece of gear that will motivate you, improve you, and entertain you all year long, this is it.
