Yesterday, Garmin announced their smallest and lightest bike computers yet–the Edge 20 and the Edge 25. Capturing basic ride data, the new bike computers are for those cyclists who just want something simple and easy to read on their ride without taking up much space on the handlebars.
Weighing in at 25 grams and measuring 1.6 x 1.6 x 0.7 inches, the Edge 20 and Edge 25 are even smaller and lighter than Lezyne’s Mini GPS, previously the smallest and lightest bike computer on the market.
Both Garmin bike computers capture your basic essential ride data such as time, distance, speed, total ascent, and location. With ANT+ connectivity in the Edge 25, you can add on sensor information such as speed, cadence, and heart rate.
Paired to your phone via Bluetooth, the Edge 25 offers Live Tracking, where friends and family can follow your ride progress in real time, as well as the ability to upload your data to Garmin Connect and share on social networks. Edge 20 users can also upload ride data to Garmin Connect but via your computer.
When you are traveling or looking for something new, you can choose courses ridden by others or create your own on Garmin Connect, then upload it directly to the Edge 20 or Edge 25 and follow the directions. You can even compete against yourself in rides you have ridden previously to make it more interesting.
Both devices are water-resistant for those rainy day rides and feature up to eight hours of battery life.
The Edge 20 and Edge 25 are available now for $129.99 and $169.99, respectively. The Edge 25 is also available as part of a cadence bundle for $199.99.
