Part#: 010-00829-01 If you want a complete package to help you boost your cycling performance, this Garmin Edge 500
bundle is the perfect fit for any performance-driven cyclist. Loaded with data and user-friendly features, the Garmin Edge 500 cycling computer allows for you to keep on top of all of the important metrics with precision and accuracy.
The Garmin Edge 500 is already known for being a solid training computer. It’s lightweight, GPS-based, and offers tracking for distance, speed, location, and elevation. But when bundled with an ANT+ compatible heart rate monitor, speed/cadence senor, or compatible power meter, the Garmin Edge 500 turns into the ultimate training machine.
Attach the Garmin Edge 500 to your step or handlebars using the low-profile bike mount. Turn it on and go, using the high-sensitivity GPS receiver with HotFix satellite prediction to guide you along the way. Take advantage of the built-in Courses feature, which helps you compare successive rides over the same route, as well as Auto Pause, Auto Lap and temperature readings. Then, take it up to the next level with the speed/cadence sensor and the heart rate monitor transmitter. You’ll get all the data you need to calculate calories burned, heart rate training zones, performance increases, and of course, your progress toward your goal. After the ride is done, connect your Edge 500 to your computer using the USB cable that comes included. Analyze your performance and share your training journey on Garmin Connect. This bundle just does it all.

Jumpstart Your Training
The Edge 500 attaches easily to the stem or handlebars of your bike with its low-profile bike mount. The Edge attaches easily to the mount with a simple quarter-turn. When you're ready to ride, just power on your Edge, acquire GPS satellites and go. Edge 500 features a high-sensitivity GPS receiver with HotFix® satellite prediction to calculate your position faster.
Get the Data You Need
During your ride, Edge 500 measures your speed, distance, time, calories burned, altitude, climb and descent, and records this data for your review. For extra-precise climb and descent data, Edge 500 also incorporates a barometric altimeter to pinpoint changes in elevation.
All Edge 500 versions work with third-party ANT+-enabled power meters to display your power output in watts as you ride. This valuable data shows you how hard you're working, regardless of conditions affecting your ride, so you can train smarter. Some versions also ship with a digital heart rate monitor and speed/cadence sensor.
Other helpful training features include a Courses feature, which helps you compare successive rides over the same route, as well as Auto Pause, Auto Lap and temperature readings. Edge also alerts you if you’re moving, but the timer is not running.
Track Your Heart Rate
When paired with a Garmin heart rate monitor, Edge 500 tracks heart beats per minute and uses your heart rate for advanced calorie computation, so you know how many calories you're burning. Train in a certain heart-rate zone to improve your fitness level or compare your pace and heart rate to past performance over the same ride.
Analyze Your Ride
Once your ride’s done, connect Edge 500 to your computer with the included USB cable to analyze your performance. With a simple click, you can join a worldwide network of cyclists and outdoor enthusiasts through Garmin Connect, a one-stop site for data analysis and sharing.

1. Make sure they are running the most current version of the firmware. Can be updated from Garmin's Website to their monitor.
2. In the event of a race time being off, more than likely they have Auto Pause on and it is stopping when they stop or walk slow enough, if they were stopping for water or walking there may be a few minutes discrepancy when using the auto pause feature.
