You read my review of the Garmin Edge 130, the GPS company’s latest cycling-specific computer, and now you can watch my video review as I talk through its key features and what it’s like to live with and use as a daily computer. So go ahead and hit that play button.
The Garmin Edge 130 was launched this year and a lot of, but not all, features you get on higher end Edge computers, in a really dinky form-factor. It'll talk to any sensor using ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart, including your smartphone, and does basic navigation although there's no base map installed so you're just following a line.
Garmin says, "It's the little things that make all the difference, which is why you're going to love Edge 130. This ruggedly compact but capable GPS cycling computer has everything you need to navigate your ride, monitor stats, stay connected with loved ones and much more. And it's all in a compact device that goes where you go and won't weigh you down.
David has worked on the road.cc tech team since July 2012. Previously he was editor of Bikemagic.com and before that staff writer at RCUK. He's a seasoned cyclist of all disciplines, from road to mountain biking, touring to cyclo-cross, he only wishes he had time to ride them all. He's mildly competitive, though he'll never admit it, and is a frequent road racer but is too lazy to do really well. He currently resides in the Cotswolds.
