Touted as the smallest GPS cycling computers on the market, Garmin officially launched its new Edge 20 and Edge 25 models today.
Both computers allow cyclists to gather and store ride data metrics, and depending on the model, share it with others.
The Edge 25 differentiates itself from the Edge 20 thanks to its ability to share data with others on social networks, as well as compatibility with wearable sensors like a heart rate monitor and other sensors for features like cadence and speed. Both have a display that shows data on what is promised to be a “simple interface”.
Both computers are waterproof – so rain won’t spell their demise, along with the promise of extreme durability, light weight (only 25 grams), support for both GLONASS and GPS and they can maintain battery life up to 8 hours on a charge.
In addition, the Edge 25 is Bluetooth compatible, so users can upload data to Garmin’s Connect, which can store metrics for further analysis and sharing.This feature can also sync with “Live Tracking”, so other cyclists can track your ride in real time.
By comparison, Garmin says, the Edge 20 can also be used with their Connect platform, but only through a PC or Mac.
The Edge 20 is priced at $129.99 USD, and the Edge 25 is priced at $169.99 USD. An Edge 25 “cadence bundle” is also offered for $199.99 USD.
