Garmin launch new 810/510 bike computers
New bike computers from the GPS Kings
Garmin has announced the launch of its new Edge 810 and 510 cycling computers, and the Garmin Connect Mobile app.
The Edge 810 and 510 are Garmin’s first dedicated cycling devices with real-time connectivity and combine the most popular aspects of the industry-leading Edge 800/500 while adding advanced connected features through a smartphone (Apple® or Android™).
The new user-friendly interface, along with live tracking, social media sharing and real-time weather updates make them perfect for training, touring and riding on the trail.
The new Edge 810 features a sleek 2.6” colour display, up to 17-hours of battery life, and a newly redesigned and simplified touchscreen interface. The 810 is compatible with optional detailed street or TOPO maps including BirdsEye Satellite Imagery, so it can guide cyclists for touring, commuting or extended activities where they might need onboard maps and navigation.
The Edge 510 was designed specifically for performance driven cyclists and is a light-weight (80g) compact option. The 510 features a similar user interface to the 810, boasts a new 2.2” sunlight readable touchscreen display and is compatible with both GPS and GLONASS satellites for faster satellite acquisition and improved signal lock. The 510 is suited for the most challenging conditions, such as trails and adventures with heavy tree cover. To see the Edge 810 and 510 in action, go to www.garmin.com/edge.
Mounting options include a new out-front mount for heads-up positioning and a standard quarter-turn mount.
The Edge 510 and 810 are available now and have suggested retail prices starting from £249 and £379 respectively. The Garmin Connect Mobile app will be available for free download at the App Store and in Google Play on January 10 2013.
