Garmin announced its Edge 200, a lightweight, stylish GPS-enabled cycling computer. Designed for those budget conscious cyclists looking for the basics — speed, distance, time and calories, the device packs a high-sensitivity GPS receiver with HotFix satellite prediction, meaning there’s less time spent waiting and more time spent riding. It has a 128×160 display.
The Edge 200 requires no calibration, can be switched quickly and easily between bicycles and can be used in all types of weather (IPX7). It can store up to 130 hours of ride data and offers up to 14 hours of batteruy life. The Edge 200 also allows users to set alerts for distance, time or calories to make it easier and more fun to achieve their goals. There is also a function called Courses that lets riders challenge their times on previous rides.
The Garmin Edge 200 cycling computer will be available in Q3 for $149.99.
