Why We Like The Garmin Edge 830 Bike Computer

Modern bike computers have fundamentally changed the way we ride. The ability to map, track, train, and interact have the ability to make riding easier, more effective, and potentially safer. The computer maestros at Garmin are at it again and its latest device, the Edge 830 Bike Computer, returns with some features we've loved in the past, along with some new ones that we're absolutely excited about using. With its impressive functionality and touchscreen operation, the Edge 830 is prepared to once again take the top step on the bike computer podium.

It performs all the basic computer functions—speed, trip time, trip distance, odometer—and the GPS and GLONASS compatibility keeps you located no matter where your ride takes you. It automatically uploads to Garmin Connect, syncs with smartphones for notifications, and through its myriad of available apps, can display information such as weather so you never miss a call or text or are surprised by changing conditions on your ride.

We love its touchscreen operation which is intuitive and doesn't leave us guessing what buttons do what when we are in a hypoxic state mid-interval. Equally cherished is its mapping function afforded by its preloaded Garmin Cycle Map that provides additional memory for adding more maps when needed. Its popularity routing, thanks to a huge database of rides that have been uploaded to Garmin Connect, even recommends the direction of travel based on how others ride it most. Furthermore, it provides on-device route creation, off-course recalculation, and can get you back to start if you have an emergency or mechanical.

When paired with ANT+ or Bluetooth sensors, the 830 provides dynamic performance monitoring insights on metrics such as your VO2 max, recommended recovery time, training load focus, heat and altitude acclimation, nutrition, hydration, and more. Additionally, it monitors gearing in other electronic shifting systems via ANT+ and pairs with ANT+ turbo trainers. It's also chock full of safety features including a new bike alarm, and returning ones like group messaging and tracking. So if the group takes a wrong turn or someone has a mechanical, if you're paired with GroupTrack, it's easy to regroup. It also receives assistance and compatibility with its Varia rearview radar and lights so you can see and be seen (when the device is paired with your compatible smartphone).

Final details include its WiFi connectivity allowing you to customize the 830 with free apps, widgets, and data fields from the Connect IQ Store. Its water resistance rating is an IPX7 meaning its more than enough should you get caught in a deluge or forget to take it off your bike that's on the roof rack in a thunderstorm. One area exceptionally impressive is its claimed 20-hour battery life and the ability to connect to the Garmin Charge power pack for up to 40 hours of additional battery life. Included with the computer is an Out-front mount, standard mount, USB cable, and manual.

Edge 830

My main complaint which may have nothing to do with Garmin is every time I travel when I get back home the device can't locate satellites.

Easy to customize screen.

When it works great product! But this is the second issue I have had a problem. Didn’t take a charge and then shut ride off in the middle of the ride.There is on section of a road in Jupiter Fl the screen change . Lastly it loose your sensor and have to reconnect them. I think it occurs after a automatic software update. In summary the 830 Garmin is problematic!

Pretty Cool Bike Computer!

I’ve only used it twice so far but so far so good! Still in the learning curve phase. One thing I noticed last ride was the map would continually pop up every time I crossed a hiking trail (I’m solely a mountain biker) and I needed to touch the screen to get back to my riding stats. It’s probably a setting that can be configured so it doesn’t do this so not worried about it at the moment. Otherwise synched up with my Polar H10 heart monitor easy. It doesn’t seem to connect to WiFi so far. I’ve played with it a bit to try to get it to looking online and trying Garmin Express and other tricks but so far no luck. Seems others have this issue too. I don’t care too much because I bluetooth to my phone and it downloads the rides. Otherwise it holds on the bike great. Love the stats it provides. I have some learning to do what some of them mean like Grit and Flow but otherwise it tracks the map, speed and other features great. I haven’t used the navigation yet so can’t really comment if trails are accurate and up to date. Happy with my purchase so far!

Reliable but disappointing

I've been using edge 830 along with my cell phone mounted on my handlebars. I really wanted to use the edge alone but have found that the mapping capabilities are very poor compared to the phone apps such as Komodo and Strava for navigation. It seems the GPS or something in the Garmin often tells me that it's off course when I'm not and the cell phone app doesn't fail in maintaining the course. Besides the navigation issues, the Garmin seems well built and does mostly what it's supposed to do. At this point, I'm wondering if I could have achieved everything that I wanted to do with only the cell phone connecting to my cadence speed and radar tail light without the expense of having bought the Garmin edge 830.

Not my best experience

I’ve had several different Garmin device from everyday wearables to edge devices and I’ve always been really happy with them. By the time I got the 830 it was amazing I loved it, but not so long after I’ve start facing issues, the very first was that it was no connecting to my wahoo trainer I understand is a different brand (although other Garmins did connect perfectly) so I let it got and use my computer to set my different trainings. Some months ago I’ve start facing the problem that the Garmin would disconnect randomly from my sensors (HR, Speed, cadence, power, etc) but after a while it would reconnect. I made sure the firmware was the last one, change battery in all my sensors but it was the same scenario. It was difficult to sync with the app must of the times to upload my rides. The jump sensor embedded in the Garmin does not always detect the jumps and sometimes detect jumps that I didn’t made, but I can live with that. Until couple of weeks were my Garmin decided not to connect with ANY device (phone, sensor) I would not blame all the company for this and I have friends that have the same device and get no issues. It was just probably me getting the bad luck to get a defective device. Looking forward for my replacement (either a 840 or 1040), but definitely I will continue to be a Garmin user.

Tech made easy enough for a senior...

I've put it through the wringer

My last garmin was the Edge 530 and this a quantum leap better! I belong to 2 bike clubs and frequently go on new routes in areas that I'm unfamiliar with. The navigation features customized fields and also customizable sizing. So I'm able to put the next turn on top which shows me the street name and the distance to that point. Paired with Strava's verbal cues its almost impossible to get lost. Syncing with heart monitor and cadence is dummy friendly and I image the power meter is too (next on my list..). Reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it wouldn't upload my ebike ride to strava (I selected "red" which is an "acoustic Roubaix" instead of "blue" which is my Creo ebike). After the ride is done, the classification can't be changed. Anyway, its a small point and overall I'm delighted with this gps unit. Its gives all the data of a 1030 but in a more compact and aero size. One more feature that I love is the touch screen which makes setting and changing screens so much easier and faster than the 530.

Elevation issues

On my second Garmin and it had the same issues as my last. Doesn’t matter if I do a saved course or just ride. It’ll always be a few thousand feet off on my elevation gain, so it’s nice to plan a course before you ride so you know how much hills you have. Because if you’re doing a blind ride in a new area you’re doomed if you have a lot of hills. This one will show a -12% grade and you’re clearly going uphill not down!

Love the Customization

I purchased my 830 a couple weeks ago after ordering my new Trek Madone. Its customization of the screens is very nice and integrates well with my bike. The button near my brakes that changes the screens is really cool too. The one thing I wish was different is the data screens are monochrome. (black and white) The unit is capable of color, because the maps are in color. So why there is no color data screen option is a mystery.

Fantastic features

The Garmin Edge coupled with the Garmin Varia radar taillight give me a profound sense of safety and awareness while riding my bike. The computer was easy to set and works as advertised.
