When it comes to buying GPS computers, there is no denying that even if you are not looking for a feature-rich device, they still cost a lot of money. For most bikers, a GPS like the Garmin Edge 530 meets all priorities; ease of use, great maps and a good battery so you can turn it on, make your trip and quickly download trip data.
If you’re considering a new GPS, now is the best time to pull the trigger on your purchase with all the major retailers launching their Black Friday bike deals. Cycling news scoured sales and found a whole bunch of great Garmin Black Friday deals, but this Garmin Edge 530 deal is the one that caught our eye for those looking for the best bike computers.
Black Friday offer Garmin Edge 530
The Garmin Edge 530 is a feature-rich GPS unit with a crisp color display, full mapping, and plenty of features from connecting sensors to tracking fitness to recording MTB metrics such as airtime. Features like ClimbPro really help pace the climbs and if you have a competitive streak you can sync Strava segments for real-time performance while you chase the KOMs.
It also has excellent battery life, with up to 20 hours of battery life, and it’s IPX7 rated so you can keep riding in any weather. While the more sophisticated touchscreens on the more expensive 830 and 1030 are good, the button controls on the 530 are really functional, especially if you’re wearing gloves.
