Garmin Edge 25
The Garmin Edge 25 is as lightweight and compact as the Edge 20, plus it offers ANT+ and Bluetooth connectivity.
'The Garmin Edge 25 is a tiny computer which still packs a punch when it comes to features, making it a great option for riders who don't need the last word in data readouts.' RCUK - see full review.
Upgrades from Garmin Edge 20
- Bluetooth connectivity means the Garmin Edge 25 syncs automatically with your phone for downloading rides and courses.
- The Garmin Edge 25 enables you to track speed, distance and cadence when home training on a turbo trainer if your bike has the appropriate ANT+ sensors.
Same as Garmin Edge 20
Weighing less than an ounce (25g) the Garmin Edge 25 is the world's smallest and lightest GPS-enabled cycling computer.
GPS-enabled means farewell to magnets, wheel sensors and setting up time: hello to a cycle computer, which is ready to go from the off and which you can easily switch between different bikes.
- The Garmin Edge 25 displays a 24 hour clock, your speed, average speed, distance travelled, elevation gained and calories consumed.
- GPS accuracy - the Edge 20 uses both GPS + GLONASS satellites to track distance even under dense tree cover.
- Harnessing multiple satellite networks helps ensure better reception.
- The Garmin Connect 'Courses' feature lets you discover new rides and offers the option of virtually competing with other Connect users.
- Garmin Connect also allows you to map your own routes for uploading onto the Edge 25.
- Although, the Edge 25 won't map the route sat nav-style like a Garmin 810, it will display arrow prompts on the ride to alert you when to turn.
- Garmin Connect allows you to review your ride on a map, analyse it and share it.
- Only 4x4cm the Garmin Edge 25 takes up minimal bar space.
- IPX7 water rated - the Garmin Edge 25 will keep on working when it rains heavily.
- USB rechargeable Li-ion battery with up to 10 hours run time per charge.
- Unlike a phone, you can use the Edge 25 for up to 10 hours without worrying about data or battery drainage.
- The computer weighs 25g. Its simple, secure quarter-turn mounting bracket and band (another winning, versatile Garmin feature) adds a further scant 4 grams to the overall weight (checked at Bike Co-op HQ, July 2015).
