Garmin Edge 500

Garmin on Tuesday brought the price of its cycling GPS downwards through the Edge 500. The blue-and-white unit is pitched as the best of both worlds and tracks all the core features, including actual positional and speed data as well as the estimated calories burned and amount of climb or descent. It can similarly pair with wireless sensors either specific to Garmin or which support the ANT+ format, such as cadence or heart rate monitors, and will use that information to improve the calorie rate and other data already being tracked.

The new Edge has about 18 hours of battery life and plugs into USB both to recharge as well as to send its data to a Mac or Windows PC. Garmin will only put the release sometime in the fall but prices the main Edge 500 at $250. A bundle with a cadence/speed sensor and a heart rate monitor lifts the price to $350.
