GARMIN Edge 520

Features:

  • Best suited to be fixed on a bike, robust, very handy
  • Easy to read color display with background illumination ((200x265 pixels)
  • Multilingual user interface in Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish
  • Integrated antenna to receive signals of GPS and GLONASS satellites. The accuracy of the position tracking gets increased by combining the two systems because there are usually more satellites visible.
  • Powered by built-in, rechargeable battery (lasts about 15 h), battery charger included
  • Chest belt with heart rate monitor. The chest belt uses a digitally coded signal, which means, once a heart beat sensor and the GPS have been paired, the GPS will never receive a conflicting signal from another sensor. So you can exercise in close proximity to other sensors without fear of interference. Heart rate monitor either included in the package or available as an option.
  • Short time to first fix (TTFF¹: approx. 15 seconds after a warm start, meaning there are valid coordinates of the satellites available, or approx. 45 seconds after a cold start, meaning there are no valid coordinates of the satellites available)
  • Firmware stored in Flash-Memory, can be updated by the user
  • Operating temperatures -20 .. 55°C (-4° .. 130°F)
  • USB interface (connection cable included)
  • Dimensions: 49x73x21 mm (1.9x2.9x0.8 inches)
  • Weight: 60 g (2.1 ounces)
  • Water resistant up to approx. 3 feet (1 meter) for about 30 minutes (IPX7)

¹) TTFF: Time To First Fix, time until the first information about the local position is acquired.

Information about your training:

  • Personal profile: Stores personal information such as gender, date of birth, weight and height (in order to calculate the calories burned)
  • Activity profiles: Each profile provides up to 5 general training pages each with 1 to 10 data fields, a map page, a compass page, an elevation page, a lap summary page, a virtual partner page, a cycling dynamics page, and a light network page. You can turn on or off each page. You may also configure a default ride type (e.g. road, mountain, indoor, eBike a.m.m.), a GPS mode, the map (orientation, auto zoom and guide text), alerts (e.b. time, distance, heart rate, workout target a.m.m.), auto features (auto lap, auto pause, auto sleep, auto scroll), start notice when you begin an activity. You may add, modify and remove profiles.
  • Stop watch with split times (laps). Records split times either manually by pressing the "lap" key or automatically based on a user defined distance or position.
  • Auto pause: Stops the watch automatically if the current speed drops below a user defined value, e.g. when waiting at a red light or during a short break.
  • Distance alert: Goes off after you have travelled a user defined distance. The alert can be set to go off only once or repetitive.
  • Time alert Goes off after a user defined time period. The alert can be set to go off only once or repetitive.
  • Virtual Partner: This unique feature helps you to achieve certain goals for your workout. The goals are based on a previous drive over the same track or on a course downloaded over the Internet. You may adjust the time for your current workout. The virtual partner will keep exactly the speed required to achieve the goal you have set. The Edge 520 will constantly measure your current speed and compares it to the virtual partner's speed. It will ask you to speed up or slow down as needed and it shows on the display whether you are ahead or behind your virtual partner.
  • History: The Edge 520 keeps track of your workouts. It stores the date, time, number of laps, duration, distance, average speed, calories burned, average and maximum heart rate on a daily basis. It also provides weekly overviews and running totals for the duration, distance and calories burned.
  • Stores up to 180 hours of training data.
  • Supports metric and U.S. units.
