Track Every Detail
In addition to the mapping capabilities of the Edge 810, the Edge 810 and 510 records your distance, speed metrics, ascent/descent, grade and more. They’re also compatible with ANT+ sensors that measure your heart rate, speed/cadence and power. The activity profiles feature allows you to customize data fields and device settings based on cycling activity, such as road, mountain or touring. Switch profiles with a simple swipe of the touchscreen, and your device will be set up to show the data you need for that ride. When you complete a ride, the 510 displays any new personal records you achieved, such as farthest distance, most ascent gained and more.

Get Connected
The Edge 810 and 510 offers a suite of connected features when paired with your smartphone (Apple or Android) and the Garmin Connect Mobile app. This allows you to gain comprehensive, accurate ride data from a dedicated device, while saving your phone battery. Edge tracks the data and sends it to your phone using a Bluetooth connection. Stay connected and share all the details of your ride with friends, family and your social media contacts. You can post an update immediately after your ride or race with details from your completed activity. You’ll create your posts via your smartphone, and the ride data’s already there, thanks to the interface with Garmin Connect Mobile.

Live Tracking
The live tracking feature allows your friends and family to follow your races and training activities in real time. Invite followers using email or social media, so they can view your live data on a Garmin Connect tracking page. Once they get your email invite, they can click to follow and see your stats and location on the map.

Weather
Get real-time weather conditions, forecasts and alerts (in areas with coverage) directly on the Edge 810 and 510 when it’s paired with your smartphone and the Garmin Connect Mobile app. This feature is useful for extended rides, and it lets you keep your smartphone safe and dry, while the weather data you need is at your fingertips.

Wireless Data Transfers
Now you can instantly store, share and analyze every detail of your ride. The Garmin Connect Mobile app allows for wireless uploads of completed activities from your device as soon as you finish recording an activity. You choose whether activities are automatically or manually uploaded. Once your ride has posted to Garmin Connect, your own “connections” can view them. You can also search your courses and workouts stored at Garmin Connect, download to your smartphone, then send directly to your Edge 810 and 510 — wirelessly. You can then navigate to the start of the course and use the Virtual Partner feature on your Edge to race your previous activities in real time.

Purpose-Built Bike Computer
There’s no better bike computer to guide your ride. Edge 810 and 510 are rugged, waterproof and have up to a 17 and 20-hour battery life, respectively. The touchscreen is easy to operate, even with a gloved finger and when wet. Mounting options include a new out-front mount for heads-up positioning and a standard quarter-turn mount. The Edge 510 also comes with a tether to ensure your device doesn’t travel far in the event of a spill.
