Great unit, amazing for training and being able to customize basically everything on it is an awesome feature
Originally bought the red version for myself but my wife decided she liked it so much she wanted one for herself.
Amazing piece of kit which just works and can be setup to be as simple or as complex as you want it to be.
Works with her Macbook Pro and easily links into Strava and the online Garmin software
Great piece of kit which just works. Came with two bike mounts which is a bonus.
The Garmin software works with both Windows and Mac, and you can also get an app for your smart phone.
So far after my first ride I am very pleased with the Edge500. Like all Garmin products it's easy to use and intuitive. Can't wait to put on the miles.
Garmin and Strava are a great training tool and as a cycling coach I would recommend every serious cyclist get one of the these along with the HR monitor. I also have SVT which is triggered when I exceed 180 bpm for a sustained period so the monitor is a super way to notice if there is anything wrong with your Heart.
Great bike computer easy to use and easy to read the information should have got one years ago. Get one
Garmin Edge 500 a great piece of kit for any cyclist.
Easy to set up and record your bike rides.
All activities can be viewed on Garmin Training Center to give the cyclist a great account of there bike ride.
If your serious about your bike riding this is a must for any cyclist. You can customize the Garmin Edge to suit your own needs. Operating this piece of kit is easy as you are supplied with CD giving all the functions of this bike computer.
Good easy bit of kit to use, just charge it up put it on bike and go. Also good quick service from the shop.
Great bit of kit. Deliberated over whether I'd go for the edge 500, or the bryton rider 40. Also was not going to bother with hrm and cadence sensor. Glad I went with the full edge kit, everything you could want. Downloaded a sportive route I was doing over the weekend, great for looking at the hills ahead and for keeping you on course. Well recommended.
Great gadget with heaps of information available, set your own screens to suit the ride. connection is usually within 30 seconds and battery life is lasting around 16-18 hours
Dead easy to set up and use. I'm still learning how to use it properly but one slight drawback. The cable tie used to secure the cadence monitor on the pedal crank has been wearing against my cycle shoe. I've adjusted the cleat on the shoe, but it's not in the perfect position for me. Overall very good - no need to waste the extra cash on a 510 or 810!
Only had it for a week, but I took it for a 50 miles ride without a issue of freezing up. I'm positive the new firmware fixed the problem. This is a must if you are a cyclist.
Don't know myself since getting this...all the info I could ever want..or digest at your fingertips, this is a super bit of kit and... pricewise... Merlin have the best deal on the full package, believe me, I priced around!
Mr sanchez diaz
Great article, helps me a lot with the information gives to me. Cadence, speed, time, etc. I recomend to buy it
Very nice user friendly....
This really is- Plug & Play! I was going to only use this Garmin for full on training rides & other high milage events. However, coupled together with Strava I'm using nearly every time I get on my bike!!
This Garmin is awesome, I got it for my 13 year old son who is riding a lot more and wanted to keep track of his rides. He loves it.
Merlin Cycles was the best prices out there. I had ordered some Formula brakes form them a while back, and like many people I was concern about the delivery. The Garmin arrived in a week, now that was fast&looks like I will be ordering more items form the in the near feature.
Great product and Great service, Thanks Merlin.
Excellent product +++
Easy to operate, mega data collection. Cheapest in the market.
Great unit with good data storage and analysis.
Why have I wasted so much of my time with other products. I spent the last 18 months with different top of the line S#gma units. They all failed one way or another. This is the best! I also purchased a second Garmin GCS 10 for the 29er. 10/10 You won't be disappointed.
Very pleased with the garmin 500 plus the price and service from Merlin was fantastic.Thanks
useful training aid. Decided on the Edge 500 as simple to set up - just take it out of the box ,fit the mount on your bike and you are ready to go. Included both heart rate and cadence monitors. Also wanted ability to use on both road and mountain bike, having 2 cycle mounts and simple twist and click action to switch the monitor between bikes is a big plus.
Great service fast delivery best online price on the net.Will definitely be back for more stuff.
Great price and ultra swift service.
The best thing I bought since my Tarmac
Makes me feel like a pro with the charts on garmin connect
I've only had it for 5 rides and it's got me going faster and trying harder
Recommend to all
I got the GPS bundle with cadence and HRM togeather and its a great computer to have with you on your spins, has all the info you need and much much more, up to 40 pieces of info can be displayed which is more than i need. easy to use, clips on and off nicely easy to read and scroll through pages on the move all round great purchase.
Love the Garmin edge 500, it has features to suit all riding styles. The best feature is the ability to customise the screen with information that suits you.
Item was shipped quickly by Merlin cycles and exactly as advertised.
Garmin was packaged nicely and worked right out of the box. I was coming from an Edge 705 so I knew exactly what I wanted and Merlin was the cheapest that I could find anywhere on the internet for.
Brilliant service as usual from Merlin. A*
Best Cycling Computer going round and at a cheap price like this it is a steal, cheapest i have seen alround. Upload to strava and your set.
Fantastic piece of kit and much smaller than it looks! Every feature you could possibly need to improve your training. Upload to Strava and you are away!
Absolutely delighted . As usual delivery with Merlin is within 1-2 days. Item came well packaged. Instructions and set up easy to understand and do. Picks up signal quite quickly and is very accurate. Very appealing to the serious cyclist who is looking to improve their performance, especially the heart rate monitor and the cadence. Setting up and following a pre-determined route is quite easy to do, plus the garmin website is fantastic. Would highly reccomend.
Smart piece of kit. Not used to full extent yet but so far so good. Simple to install with help of online pics for cadence. Have not got cadence working yet but installed and used once since without trying to adjust. Heart rate monitor works fine - used on several rides with no problems. Garmin connect ok and no issues with data transfer. 1 Problem i have come accross is with editing. in certain pages it won't let me edit or access certain pages- very frustrating. Again, i have not emailed garmin for support on this. Early days but so far so good
