The Garmin Edge 520 is the GPS bike computer that’s right-sized for competitive cyclists and packed with the features you crave.
Garmin started with the aerodynamic form factor of the popular Edge 500, added in-ride challenges on Strava live segments, colour display, connected capabilities and advanced analysis features. The result — the Edge 520, the GPS bike computer that helps you compete, compare and enhance your performance.
The Garmin Edge 520 is the first bike computer that’s compatible with Strava live segments and includes a 3-month trial of Strava Premium. With this membership, your starred Strava segments automatically sync with the 520 for live feedback during your ride. You’ll also get alerts for segment start and finish and leaderboard rankings once you complete the segment.
Need some motivation to get through those lonely miles on the indoor trainer? Edge 520 delivers with a suite of training capabilities when paired with compatible ANT+ indoor trainers. Let’s say you want to train at an average power of 240 watts. Just set the target on Edge 520, start pedalling, and the trainer will automatically adjust to keep you at your target while the 520 shows your stats. You can also follow a course that you or another rider created and literally race the recorded stats, with the trainer adjusting resistance to match the elevation profile.
Pair it with a power meter and Edge 520 offers an additional set of features, like FTP and watts/kg tracking, so you can compare yourself to others, as well as cycling dynamics². A built-in FTP test helps you establish your baseline either on the trainer or on the road. Using your included heart rate monitor, the Edge 520 can derive your VO2 max estimate and post-ride recovery time, which indicates how long before you should attempt another hard effort.
Edge 520 compromises nothing when it comes to display — 2.3 inches of high-resolution colour. We maximized the display so you get the most live area in relation to the compact size of the 520. You’ll also appreciate the screen clarity in all lighting conditions.
Edge 520 is compatible with ANT+ sensors, including Varia™ bike radar and lights4, speed, cadence (included), heart rate (included), Edge and VIRB® remotes and compatible weight scales. It also integrates with Shimano Di2 electronic shifting systems5 to display your current gear on the screen. Edge 520 is also compatible with ANT+ power meters, including the Vector series.
When paired with your compatible phone and the Garmin Connect™ Mobile app, Edge 520 offers live tracking, smartphone alerts, social media sharing, weather and wireless uploads. Once your ride is complete, the data can be automatically sent to Garmin Connect™, our online community where you can save, plan and share your rides.
The compact, rugged form factor and 15+ hour battery life of Edge 520 make it ideal for off-road adventures. It’s also compatible with GPS/GLONASS satellites, so you benefit from more signal options, wherever your ride takes you.

My first Garmin and love it. Opened the box and installed the mount unit, plus the speed and cadence sensors in under 10 minutes. Took another few minutes to figure out how to move through the menus and which options I would / might use. Then off for a spin. When I got back I installed Garmin Connect on my phone and set it up to connect with Strava. Enabled Bluetooth on both phone and Edge 520, and by the time i got out of the shower the ride was up on Strava. The buttons are a bit fiddly but once you know what you are doing they work well (and definitely work better than any touch screen device I have ever used especially in cold season) Base map and turn directions take a little getting used to (especially when the turn you need is more of a lane than a road). Again, with a little practice its works well. The main unit comes with dreadful maps installed but they can be removed and replaced with OpenStreetmap area maps which are much more detailed. It records all the data I need - and more than I would ever use. It provides turn by turn directions on a base map. Battery life appears to be good (I got a 13hr ride and a 3 hrs outing on a single charge). This product is for road bike and day use, you must be know that while you buy before, because in the night ride you can't see the screen light too much. Because it turns off for the battery save. It's a great tool to improve your riding
User friendly! Love the actual button rather than touch screen.
You guys rock, excellent service. Delivered to SA in less than 6 days. Excellent prices and service. Will defiantly be using you guys again and recommending. Almost forgot, the Garmin edge 520, lives up to all the reviews I read before purchasing..
