GCN have just given us a headstart on this unboxing video of the brand new Garmin Edge 1000, which we gave you a first look at a few weeks ago. The new Edge 1000 isn't due into shops until 18th May so consider this the first time it has been seen in the wild.
To briefly recap, the new Edge 1000 ushers in segment-based timed with Garmin’s own website, Garmin Connect, as well as bike-specific navigation and mapping capabilities and the ability to display your current gear if you run a Shimano Di2 electronic shift system with D-Fly Data Management.
“The Edge 1000 combines the essential legacy features cyclists love from the Edge Touring and Edge 810, with exciting new features including a large high-resolution colour touch screen display, advanced smartphone connectivity, and challenging segment features,” said Andrew Silver, Garmin Product Manager.
You can read much more about it in our Edge 1000 first look article here. It is set to cost £439 with a bundle including Garmin’s HRM3 heart rate monitor and new speed/cadence sensors costing £499.
We'll be getting one in to review soon and we'll give you a closer look at it when it does arrive in the office. For now you can get even more info over at www.garmin.com.
