Living On The Edge With Garmin
Garmin introduced its newest cycling GPS product today, the Edge 500.
This navigational tool tracks speed, distance, time, GPS position, elevation, calories burned, climb and descent. Those are a lot of applications in a product that weighs just two ounces.
The Edge 500 is designed mainly for performance cyclists. It will go on sale in December with a suggested retail price of $249.99. If bundled with a heart rate monitor and speed/cadence sensor, the Edge will carry a $349.99 price tag.
The latest in Garmin's Edge product line for cyclists can be mounted on the bicycle stem or handlebars. It has battery life of up to 18 hours.
