Make the most of every ride with Edge 800, the ultimate touchscreen GPS bike computer. Providing navigation and performance monitoring, the Edge 800 performance is ideal for all cycling disciplines. It has a built-in basemap and can track your distance, speed, location and ascent/descent. Use it with the suppiled ANT heart rate monitor and speed/cadence sensor together with a compatible power meter for a finely tuned analysis of your ride.
Edge 800's touchscreen display is rugged enough to stand up to the elements, yet sensitive enough to respond to the tap of your gloved hand. Switch training pages or pan and zoom the map with just a tap. The bright, sunlight-readable colour display is easy to view in all lighting conditions. Just don't let its good looks fool you the Edge 800 is waterproof to IPX7 standards and can withstand hard knocks and scrapes.
The aerodynamic Edge 800 has a carbon fibre construction with either blue or white accents and attaches to the stem or handlebar of your bike with a low-profile mount which also can be bought as an accessory so you swap the unit between bikes with ease.
The 'Performance' system comes with a built-in basemap that shows major roads and cities, plus it's compatible with Garmin's range of microSD cards to add your choice of street or recreation maps. Select your destination and Edge 800 provides turn-by-turn navigation prompts on the screen to guide your ride there.
Edge 800 is also available with Garmin GB Discoverer 1:50,000 scale Ordnance Survey mapping for the whole of Britain. With contours, elevations, summits, paths, routable roads and more, it's ideal for cycling anywhere in Britain on any terrain. Or choose optional plug-in 1:25k scale GB Discoverer maps for OS Explorer Map detail of your favourite National Parks (19 titles) or National Trail (17 titles).
Other Edge 800 bundles available to suit your style of riding include mapping options for navigation on and off-road and performance options with heart rate and speed/cadence sensors.
Edge 800 can also guide you along routes recorded by other cyclists. Explore the Garmin Connect site and choose from millions of rides uploaded by other users. Any activities you upload to your Edge 800 are stored as courses. You can follow the course with navigation prompts or, for a little competition, race it and try to beat previously set goals. Don't waste precious time planning your adventure when you're already outside. Garmin's free BaseCamp software lets you create routes on your computer and then transfer to your Edge 800 in incredible detail with 2D, 3D and elevation views.
Edge 800 records your every move with a high-sensitivity GPS receiver that stays locked on to a signal, even under tree cover. The receiver features HotFix satellite prediction to calculate your position faster, plus it has automatic time zone adjustment.
Edge 800 tracks a variety of data from your ride and lets you customise up to three training pages so you can see as much or as little ride information as you want. The barometric altimeter provides extra-precise climb and descent data and records temperature changes.
If you want even more ride information, you can pair Edge 800 with a third-party ANT enabled power meter to display your power output in watts as you ride. This valuable data shows you how hard you're working so you can train smarter. Some versions of Edge 800 also come with a speed/cadence sensor and heart rate monitor.
Anyone needing additional motivation to push their performance should use the Virtual Partner, a digital depiction of your goal speed vs. your speed in real-time. Other training features include detailed workout planning, Auto Pause , Auto Lap and Courses, which helps you compare successive rides over the same route.
