Garmin Edge 800 – Make the most of every ride
Providing navigation and performance monitoring, the Garmin Edge® 800 is ideal for touring, commuting, competitive cycling and mountain biking. It has a built-in basemap and tracks your distance, speed, location and ascent/descent.
Control At Your Fingertips
The Garmin Edge 800 display is designed to be rugged enough to stand up to all conditions, yet sensitive enough to respond to the tap of a gloved hand. Switch training pages or pan and zoom the map with just a quick tap. The bright, sunlight-readable colour display is easy to view in all lighting conditions including bright sunshine and dusk. Just don’t let its good looks fool you, the Garmin Edge 800 is waterproof and can withstand hard knocks, drops and any scrapes it might endure in mountain biking terrain.
The aerodynamic Garmin Edge 800 has a carbon fibre look with either blue or white accents and attaches to the stem or handlebar of your bike with the low-profile mount. A quarter-turn mount design holds unit securely and lets you easily swap it between bikes using removable, reusable bands.
Never lose Your Trail
Whether your bike is a means of transportation or escape, with maps at your fingertips, it makes every journey easy and more fun. The Garmin Edge 800 comes with a built-in basemap that shows all major roads and cities.
Garmin Edge 800 can also guide you along routes recorded by fellow cyclists. Explore the Garmin Connect site and choose from millions of rides uploaded by other users, perfect for a quiet weekend. Any activities you upload to your Garmin Edge 800 are stored as courses. You can follow the course with navigation prompts or, for a little competition, race it and try to beat previously set goals. You can also use Garmin’s free Basecamp software or other applications to create a route, view elevation changes and other data, and then upload to Edge.
Garmin Edge 800 records your every move with a high-sensitivity GPS receiver that stays locked on, even under tree cover. The receiver features HotFix satellite prediction to calculate your position faster, plus it has automatic time zone adjustment.
Get the Stats
Garmin Edge 800 tracks a bunch of data from your ride and lets you customize up to three training pages so you can see as much or as little data as you want. The barometric altimeter provides extra-precise climb and descent data and records temperature changes.
Need a little motivation to push your performance? See how you measure up to the Virtual Partner — a digital depiction of your goal speed vs. your speed in real-time. Other training features include detailed workout planning, Auto Pause, Auto Lap and Courses, which helps you compare successive rides over the same route.
