The best Edge yet.

Relying on the proven functionality of the Edge 810, Garmin's new Edge 1000 Bike Computer now includes a larger high-resolution touchscreen display, as well as many communication technologies such as Bluetooth 4.0, incoming call and text notification, and WiFi. And for those running electronic, the 1000 is compatible with Shimano's Di2 electronic drivetrains with Shimano's D-Fly Data Management function. Oh, and the bike-specific navigation and mapping capabilities, instant uploads to social media, and live tracking features you've come to know and love on the 810 are all wrapped in to this system, too. For the bundle version, you also receive Garmin's HRM3 heart rate monitor, as well as its new speed/cadence sensors.

For the new screen, Garmin placed its primary focus on making it larger than the 810, both in terms of height and width, as well as simplifying screen and metrics navigation. The initial start screen prompts you to select the CPU's functionality for your ride, either "train" or "race." To avoid confusion, training mode is presented in Blue, whereas race mode is presented in Red. Additionally, this screen enables you to select the bike profile that you'll be riding — mountain, road, and cyclocross. Once these selections have been made, you simply touch the ride button, and the screen moves to your race or training page. And of course, this page is customizable for every bike profile in your quiver. So, your ride page will only reflect the data that you deem pertinent to your ride or race. And like with the 810, you simply swipe the touchscreen from page to page. Also, Garmin designed the screen to operate seamlessly with gloved hands in the cold, in the heat, or even in wet weather.

The new 1000 now supports gearing information directly from Shimano's Di2 drivetrains. It does this by communicating with Shimano's D-Fly Data Management function, which transmits gearing and battery level data directly to the unit. The 1000 also includes a Bluetooth 4.0 chipset. So, while sport device communication is still handled by ANT+ (say, wireless data transfer from HRMs or power meters), the Bluetooth technology communicates with your smartphone. The previous models feature Bluetooth chipsets, but the 4.0 version supports Bluetooth Smart Sensors. And to make matters even easier, the 1000 is fluent in either Android or iOS operating systems. It's worth noting, however, that the new call and text alerts feature is only iOS-compatible at this time.

So, once you're synced up with your phone, and you've downloaded the Garmin Connect Mobile App, the 1000 really comes alive. Essentially, the 1000 receives data from your smartphone, like live weather and activity upload. This means that you're able to receive real-time weather conditions, forecasts, and alerts while your phone stays protected. And for activity upload, this hastens the data transfer once you've finished your ride. From any location, this feature allows you to wirelessly upload your ride data to your smartphone, which then uploads it to your Garmin Connect profile online. Accordingly, you can view your profile from the Mobile App, almost eliminating the need to access Garmin Connect from a home computer.

With the 1000's Live Tracking feature, you have the ability to share your activities in real-time through either email or the social media of your choosing. All that you have to do is invite your coach, friends, or family to follow you on Garmin Connect, and then you're able to send email notifications reminding them to follow your real-time activity, stats, data, and location while you're on the bike. You also have the option to share this information via Facebook or Twitter. And with either the Mobile App or Garmin Connect, you have the ability to peruse rides in your area. Once you find one to your liking, simply select the ride, and then the route is uploaded to the unit with full GPS navigation capabilities. And whether you're on a designated route, or simply going wherever the road takes you, the map feature permits you to view the area in either topographical or detailed street views.

The 1000 accepts microSD data cards, and it's capable of storing up to 200 waypoints on its onboard history. Its rechargeable lithium-ion battery has a life that extends to around 15 hours. Garmin also ensured that the CPU is completely waterproof, and it's also compatible with virtually any ANT+ equipped device. So, mating the 1000 to the included HRM or power meter will be a simple process. The included sensors are magnet-less, and they rely on accelerometers to measure cadence and distance.

The Garmin Edge 1000 Bundle Bike Computer is available in the color Black and includes a bike mount, micro-USB cable, heart rate monitor, speed and cadence sensors, and a user manual.

My bike now has a brain

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Wow, this thing has it all. It took me a day or two to adjust all of the settings to what I wanted and get it calibrated on some test rides.

Installing the sensors (get the sensors) is quick and easy- even moving them across bikes to save some $ is easy. The mounts are easy to install- just be careful if your stem isn't long enough you don't scratch the Garmin. It comes with several- I put the out front mount on my road bike and a handlebar mount on my MTB. It automatically calibrates your wheel size after about 0.5 miles. Cool!

I read a lot about the bugs the Garmin devices had. It seems that by now all of them have been sorted, if you know what to do. It's not clear, but be sure to download and install the Garmin USB drivers and Garmin Express BEFORE plugging in the Edge. This way the computer will always recognize the device.

It syncs with speed, cadence, heart, bluetooth, GPS, and WiFi all very quickly. I like seeing my ride results on Strava, Connect, and TrainingPeaks after my rides without uploading anything. I still need to figure out how to efficiently download Strava segments though. Uploading segments is quick- especially since you can do it over Wi-Fi now.

Some people also complained about battery life. Something like this I expect to charge after every ride. I think this could last me a century ride easily, more if I turned off some functionality. (Bluetooth, screen brightness, GLONASS, etc)

I heard that this thing was huge and expected to have some giant display attached to my computer. I was pleasantly surprised when I got it in the mail- not as big as I thought! Definitely still bigger than other computers, but I think it's size is actually quite good for reading maps and data easily. Plus screen quality is excellent.

I love this product and can't wait to use it on all of my future rides. I did have one thought- this costs the same amount as a smartphone. Why can't it do just as much? Sure it has sensors and GLONASS... but what else my smartphone doesn't? I guess this market is a lot less cutthroat than smartphones.

Great for Training

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I am an avid user of a number of Garmin products including the Edge 1000, the Edge 810, the 910xt, and the Virb Elite. The Edge 1000 is my favorite computer for training rides. I'll be honest--- I never use the map feature unless I'm going to go scout a race course before I actually race it. In that case, I'll use the step-by-step turns and then ride the route without the map. The main thing I like about it is that the screen is HUGE which means I really don't have to squint to see anything as all of my data is practically screaming at me. I love the wi-fi feature and the mobile bluetooth feature. I will say this-- You absolutely, absolutely, absolutely MUST keep the software up to date on this product, and really any Garmin product. It's not a tough process, but very important. Also, with blue tooth pairing, sometimes you have to start from scratch in order to establish a good connection. Sometimes I'll get connection errors with the phone, so I will remove the device from the phone settings, forget the phone from the Edge settings, power both off and re-pair. This usually works as long as all the software is up to date. People complain about having to do this, but it's a pretty quick process, only takes about 60 seconds or so. Yesterday I did a lunch ride, walked into work, the ride uploaded to the network. Since my Strava and Garmin Connect accounts are synced, I was able to update my lunch ride on Strava before I even hit the locker room. Pretty cool! I would hesitate to race with this thing-- it sticks off the front of the bars like a unicorn horn, but it is pretty awesome! OH-- I also love that in the rain, or if you are indoors and sweating and water droplets hit the screen, the screen locks and you won't accidentally hit menu options with your sweat. Also-- just in the interest of full disclosure, I do work at the company that produced this device, and I have access to use whichever of them I like the best. This is my favorite training device. For racing, I like the 500 the best, although the 810 surprisingly works fine for that as well even though it is a larger computer. I only list the last part in the interest of full disclosure. I also only review things I personally use. I understand that I may have a bias, but if you keep the things updated and cared for, they work great in my experience.

The Evolution of the Garmin Edge

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I preface my review with the same/similar statement each time...this is my opinion, NOT objective fact. I have owned the Garmin Edge 705, 800 and now 1000. This is an evolutionary device from Garmin. I must admit, I am an "early adopter" and this comes with benefits and, sometimes frustration. Thankfully, the most recent firmware upgrade (version 2.30) was released the day before I set up my 1000. I have not suffered from any of the connection failures some of the other reviews speak of. It appears Garmin fixed many of the issues others suffered from in the past.
GOOD: big and clear touchscreen, nice user interface, the best navigation I have used, and the connectivity is superb. I ride Di2 and after installing the D-Fly (difficult to find as of a month ago...I had to buy mine from a Japanese website), it will communicate with your system to tell you gear ratio and # (1-11 and 1 or 2) and gives you the % of battery charge (which I LOVE). Also, I often ride with headphones. I hate to be bothered but love the ability to see who is calling to determine whether to answer AND to READ (not respond on the device) texts! You can even have the weather displayed and get weather alerts! Although the last alert of a thunderstorm didn't help too much when I was poured on minutes later. I think they have just scratched the surface on the connectivity features and look forward to more integration (you can already control the Garmin camera with the 1000). Recently, the 1000 will wireless upload to BOTH Garmin Connect AND Strava. Cool.
NOT SO GOOD: This thing is LARGE. Look at my profile pic...it is as big as an iPhone. Rolling up to a ride with my buddies; most of whom sport an Edge themselves, I was received with more than a few chuckles and references to my "laptop" mounted to my stem. It is difficult to mount on bikes with shorter stems. Also, when turned on & charging, it keeps on wanting to force a connection with my iPhone (this may be something I can solve myself).

Just got one! Can't wait! Have you used the route planning feature? I am excited about that.

Thanks!

Responded on

Yes, Casey K...I have used it for mapping out routes unknown to me. You can use a number of different online services to map out and/or import courses. I have used a number of them with varying success.
CHEERS!

I Love It!! Garmin Connect Not So Much!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Not sure why people are all negative about this unit, maybe because Garmin is Garmin!! I think it is because the unit holds so much promise like Bluetooth 4.0 and connect to Shimano's Di2, and they don't work perfectly!! Personally, I have no need BT 4.0 because I don't need to track my calls/texts while on my bike!! I also still use the old Shimano Dura-Ace 7080 mechanical group!! But for what I do use ... GPS and to track HR, speed, cadence, power, all in one place, this unit ROCKS!! You've got to first UPDATE to fw v. 2.30 (as of June 24th, 2014) and update the US maps to 2014.10 (loooong time)!! Once updated, it works flawlessly tracking all my needed data, while I'm on the bike, and nice large LED display, which can be laid out based on preference. When I get home, it hooks up to Wi-Fi and uploads to Garmin Connect, or I can export to Strava!! What's not to like? Is it expensive? YES!! But for what you get, I have no complaints!! Easy to install, easy to use, and tracks everything perfectly!! That's all I can ask of a bike computer!!

Now, Garmin Connect ... BAD!! No segments in Manhattan, really? I rode up what is possibly the most well worn bike path in the continental US and it found NO segments!! Garmin should either abandon this folly with Garmin Connect, or update it properly, or just make the data automatically compatible with Strava!! They do that, and this device is in my book, 100%.

Can the device upload data to a Strava or...

Can the device upload data to a Strava or TraningPeaks app on an IOS device and or computer via WiFi?

Responded on

I would think so because my 510s have been doing so since the last Garmin Connect ios update. I no longer need to sync it with my pc. You can even edit the ride title and then it automatically syncs to my strava account.

Responded on

Yes for Strava! You need to login to your Strava account on a desktop and then, set up your Garmin to automatically upload when you are connected to a wifi network. When I end a ride, the 1000 will upload to my Strava AND Garmin Connect accounts immediately and without having to plug it into a computer!!
