Garmin Edge 810: Now in Stock
The long awaited Garmin Edge 810 is now available and in-stock at all Freshbikes locations. The Edge 810 has been updated to offer connected features through your smartphone, including live tracking, social media sharing and weather. And since its GPS-enabled the Edge 810 provides accurate navigation and turn-by-turn directions.
With the smartphone integration you can now send alerts (email, text or social media) to your friends "live track" your ride on the Garmin Connect tracking page. Followers will be able to view your current location, past track (where you've been) and your past and current ANT+ data (cadence/power/heart rate/speed). This is also a great safety feature as your loved ones can find out where you are in case of a mishap.
Once your done with your ride all it takes is a quick push of the 'Save' button and your completed workout will uploaded to Garmin Connect (rumors are that Strava integration is coming). And if you want to share your ride on social media you can do that too after saving your ride.
Another really cool feature of the Edge 810 is that it now displays weather information (depending on cell connectivity) directly on the unit. So no more looking at your phone to see if that rain is headed your way.
All in all this is a really cool incremental upgrade to the Edge 800. After playing with the unit we are very excited to see what other features Garmin will unlock or improve on in the coming months. To see the Edge 810 in action be sure to check out the cool new trailer for the Edge 810 from Garmin and from Garmin-Sharp Pro Cycling team.
And for those of you looking for the soon to be released Garmin Edge 510 (which also includes the great new smartphone integration) we will be receiving them the first week of February.
