garmin edge 800

Garmin just announced a new touchscreen device for cyclists called Edge 800.

It provides BirdsEye Satellite Imagery, has a bigger 2.6″ display compared to older Edge models. It can track all of your performance data, on and off road and always helps you find your way back to the start. Edge 800 tracks speed, distance, time, GPS position, elevation, calories burned, climb and descent. It syncs wirelessly through ANT+ technology with heart rate monitors and speed/cadence sensors. For even more data Edge 800 incorporates a barometric altimeter to pinpoint changes in elevation.

Edge 800 can displays temperature readings, changes time zones automatically, lasts up to 15 hours on one charge and alerts riders if they’re moving but the timer has not been started. Nice little feature.

Edge 800 costs $450 and Edge 800 Performance and Navigation Bundle costs $ 650.

    wonder how well that screen will work with gloved fingers — which will be the case routinely for bikers.
