Sharpen your cycling performance with Edge 500, a lightweight GPS-based cycling computer for performance-driven cyclists. Loaded with data, Edge 500 tracks your distance, speed, location and elevation with high sensitivity GPS. Add an ANT+® compatible heart rate monitor, speed/cadence sensor or compatible power meter for a finely-tuned analysis of your ride.
The Edge 500 attaches easily to the stem or handlebars of your bike with its low-profile bike mount. The Edge attaches easily to the mount with a simple quarter-turn. When you're ready to ride, just power on your Edge, acquire GPS satellites and go. Edge 500 features a high-sensitivity GPS receiver with HotFix® satellite prediction to calculate your position faster.
During your ride, Edge 500 measures your speed, distance, time, calories burned, altitude, climb and descent, and records this data for your review. For extra-precise climb and descent data, Edge 500 also incorporates a barometric altimeter to pinpoint changes in elevation.
All Edge 500 versions work with third-party ANT+-enabled power meters to display your power output in watts as you ride. This valuable data shows you how hard you're working, regardless of conditions affecting your ride, so you can train smarter. Some versions also ship with a digital heart rate monitor and speed/cadence sensor.
Other helpful training features include a Courses feature, which helps you compare successive rides over the same route, as well as Auto Pause, Auto Lap and temperature readings. Edge also alerts you if you’re moving but the timer is not running.
When paired with a Garmin heart rate monitor, Edge 500 tracks heart beats per minute and uses your heart rate for advanced calorie computation, so you know how many calories you're burning. Train in a certain heart-rate zone to improve your fitness level or compare your pace and heart rate to past performance over the same ride.
Once your ride’s done, connect Edge 500 to your computer with the included USB cable to analyse your performance. With a simple click, you can join a worldwide network of cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts through Garmin Connect™, a one-stop site for data analysis and sharing.

If you want a workout partner, a GPS, and a lot of fun injected into your cycling - buy this! ProBikeKit had the best price for this, and delivery was on time, and well packaged. I was most interested in the Edge 500 for turbo trainer workouts - which it does perfectly. I can turn the GPS off, and use Garmin Training Center App on my desktop computer to program workouts that really do motivate you on the turbo. It is just an awesome piece of kit for the price! Garmin Connect is fun too. I've uploaded all my sessions and can compare them side by side; marking personal bests and basically monitoring all the data produced by my workouts. I can see my fitness seriously improving with this little device, and I know the GPS is gonna be handy for route planning. At this price it's a "no-brainer"!
Excellent product. Received few days after ordering. Straight forward to setup. Makes cycling spins more interesting
very good offer buyed here un probikekit
Well lets face it if your into road riding (can speak for mtb but sure it's the same) you cannot of failed to hear about garmin. I have used an app on my phone successfully 99% of the time but liked the idea of all the data and information I could then get about my riding/training. First impression - super fast delivery and great service for probikekit. The garmin looked great and was impressively light. Setting up however was a lot less straight forward than I had thought. I also found the linking computer programmes not easy to use and failed to upload after a few attempts. On the bike. This is where it happens. I found there were too many screens for me. It didn't give me the information I wanted on one screen and I didn't like the idea of scrolling through screens to get data whilst on the bike. In summary I got back home and am used to getting the data straight away from my phone. With the garmin I then had to load up my p.c to get the info about the ride. I recognise I am likely to be in the vast minority about garmin but for me personally? It wasn't for me. Do I really need to spend that amount on something I get from a free app. Also and I think more importantly is I asked myself the question "WHY DO I RIDE?" who and what am I doing it for?
Once you learn to use it andwrite tranings is usefull for your trainings.You don't need more than the EDGE 500. Unfortunatelly it isn't have wifi but after use the USB cable you can add to Garmin Connect and automatically to Strava.
Ive done just under a thousand miles with the Garmin 500, which I would describe as moderate use. Initial set up is a little fiddly and time consuming but once you have your screens set up, its quite a natty piece of kit with a mind blowing amount of information. That said it has been less that perfect in its speed, distance and altitude calculations and annoying when your climbing up a steep gradient only to find its not been recording anything for the last half a mile due to the trees or some such. Other points are the cadence sensor you get with the 500 tends to get nudged either towards the crank arm or the wheel thus a clicking and no cadence or clicking and no speed (if on the trainer without GPS on). The final point is that the Heart rate monitor has stopped working after 7 months of use and I can not for the life of me get it to work, I have tried with a number of different batteries and tricks to try and reset it but to no avail so it looks like ill have to purchase another strap and HR monitor, which i think for a premium product at premium price is a bit poor. Sometimes I miss my old wired Cateye strada for the pace arrow super light weight and simple functionality and cost effectiveness. I do like the 500 but it's expensive and has some flaws which I don't believe it should have at this price.
Garmin edge 500. Neat design, mount onto bars simple and effective. The cadence mount was a bit of a pain to fit neatly but that was just my bike Focus Cayo. Gives all the data you need but I don't seem to be able to view heart rate on the move?
Very good price, it was an upgrade from my Edge 200, a little more complicated than the 200 but has many more functions, HRM worked first time, had a little trouble with the first upload, but solved it easily with a full reset. Very interesting seeing all the extra readings and I'm now going to start to train using the HRM.
Does what you need. Easy to configure,set up and use. Links well with Strava for your ride analysis. Yet to fully investigate the Garmin sites but from various comments I have read do not expect much so plan to mainly use for ride info plus Strava for analysis.
Garmin has proven to be on top of the market time and time again with their GPS models. The Edge 500 is no exception. The cadence, gps and heart rate bundle is the best option to chose when purchasing the Edge 500. The Heart Rate monitor is the best that I have ever used, with constant updates. The cadence sensor is also fantastic. It changes regularly to show your average cadence which is very useful for training. The plug in feature is also excellent. Easily plug it in via USB to your computer and you will receive a whole host of facts and figures. The Edge 500 is in a league of its own, matching some of it's bigger brothers such as the Edge 510 and Edge 800. If you are looking for the next training computer, look no further than the Garmin Edge 500!
Excellent purchase far cheaper than anyone else on the web
I managed to install everything on Sunday night and used it for the first time this morning. Installation was pretty simple once I'd worked out what way it was supposed to be. The data collected after todays' bike ride was fantastic. Onwards and upwards.
Once you learn the menus this unit is quite solid and easy to set up. I bought this one based on the numerous poor reviews of the 510. Couldn't be happier.
The Garmin Edge 500 GPS/HRM/CAD Cycle Computer is the benchmark by which the others are rated. It takes a bit to setup but once you have it'll tell you everything you need. This locks on the satellites well. You could pay a bit more for the 510 but unless you carry your phone and your a social media addict then why pay the extra? It does everything you need and then some, this is a first rate piece of kit.
This small footprint and enough feature is a perfect choice of mine. 5 star product. Thanks!
The best bit is the range of information on offer here and the fact that itâ€™s fully customisable. You get all the basic speed and distance measurements that youâ€™d expect along with gradient, total ascent/descent, lap times and averagesâ€¦ you get the idea. Plus, if you go for the speed/cadence sensor you get more information there, and if you use a heart rate strap you can view the measurements in a variety of different ways. Itâ€™ll link up with ANT+ power-measuring equipment too, which is a massive bonus if you train by wattage. -road.cc
I've had a few Garmins, infact 5 and i have to say this was the easiest to use, set up and mount. Its small size (compared to the older edge models) is also a bonus as it looks sleek on your racing machine rather than a large block of plastic. With the advent of websites such as Strava, having one of these is a must....you will see a marked improvement in your fitness and enjoy the competitiveness that this device allows.
