Mooie overzichtelijke fietscomputer, eenvoudig in bediening

Qua model een ideaal formaat. Niet zo’n slagschip voor op je fiets.

Detailed product description

GroupTrack helps you to get back to your mates
Even if you ride faster or slower than your cycling mates, there’s no need to feel alone. With the new GroupTrack function, you can connect the device with Garmin Connect™, so that you always know where your mates are, and they can see where you are.

Advanced performance monitoring
The Garmin Edge 520 Plus cycling computer is compatible with ANT+ sensors. You can connect the 520 plus with speed, cadence and heart rate sensors. For even more performance data, the Edge 520 Plus is also compatible with ANT+ power meters. The device can even be integrated in ANT+ elektronic shifting systems, such as Shimano DI2 and ANT+ compatible indoor trainers, e.g. from Tacx. With a heart rate strap you gain access to a variety of physiological data. See your cycling-specific VO2 max along with a recovery advisor, which analyses your data and tells you how long you should wait before attempting another hard ride. This connected system of sensors, accessories, cycling computer and post-ride analysis with Garmin Connect allows you to keep track of how your body performs from ride to ride.

Garmin Edge 520 Plus performance functions
VO2 max, recovery time, Strava Live Segments, Performance Condition, Stress Score, Extended Cycling Dynamics, FTP and Watt/kg tracking. All tools to improve your form.

Turn-by-turn navigation with pre-loaded Garmin cycling map
The cycling navigation from Garmin works the way you’re used to. Especially the integration of the Trailforks app, specially for mountain bikers, is remarkable. Whether you’re cycling on the road or in the forest, the Garmin Edge 520 Plus lets you enjoy smooth turn-by-turn cycling navigation.

Compatible with Garmin Varia products
The Edge 520 plus is equipped with Incident Detection using a built-in accelerometer. It automatically sends your location to an emergency contact if you run into difficulty. To help prevent accidents, the Edge 520 is also compatible with the extended Garmin Varia™ line of cycling awareness devices, including rear-view radar and smart bike lights, to help you keep an eye on your surroundings while cycling. When the Edge 520 plus is connected with these bike lights or the radar detecting cars approaching from behind, you don’t just see them, but you’re also visible for drivers.

Personalizing and connecting with your phone
It’s your device, so you can personalize it according to your own preferences with the adjustable data fields and free apps you can download. Have a look at the Connect IQ store and make a choice to perfectly adjust your Garmin Edge 520 Plus according to your preferences. Don’t forget that the Garmin Edge 520 Plus GPS cycling computer helps you to keep in contact with other when cycling, using smart notifications, live tracking, sharing on social media and automatic uploads to Garmin Connect, the free online fitness community offered by Garmin.

LiveTrack is easier now
With LiveTrack and GroupTrack, your family, friends and bike mates can see your location in real time, and the function is even easier to use now. If you switch on automatic starting, you can focus on your ride instead of the technology. Both LiveTrack and GroupTrack can detect automatically when you start riding, so you don’t have to grab your phone anymore. Automatic starting is also available for the new Strava Beacon, so that Strava Premium subscribers can use this great new function. This way, you can be sure that your family at home and your cycling friends know exactly where you are.

Wherever you go with the Garmin Edge 520 Plus
Whether you ride in remote forests with a thick leaf cover or along high-rise buildings in the city centre, the high-quality GPS- and GLONASS chip enables the Edge 520 Plus to determine your location quickly and precisely, wherever in the world you are.

What is the battery life of the Garmin Edge 520 plus?
New, extended battery life for longer rides. Up to 15 hours in GPS training mode, and the new battery saving mode adds 50% on top of this.
