Timothy R.wrote a review of Garmin Edge 830 Bike Computer on May 26, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I preordered this and it arrived about a week ago. The touchscreen works beautifully. I guess Garmin learned from their mistakes with the 820. It really works almost as well as a smart phone touchscreen. I tried it with heavy winter gloves and it seemed to work just about as well. Other than that I would say it's definitely a step up from the 520/820. A bunch of useful new features and much quicker chipset. I love the climbpro and the drink water feature. I'm good at not drinking and getting myself dehydrated, so being yelled at to drink water is a huge benefit for me. I would give this 5 stars except for a few bugs, which I'm sure will eventually be ironed out with updates. I had an issue with the power button that I think was a software issue (seems to be working fine after one hiccup) and rerouting tends to tell me to make a U-turn instead of actually finding a different route. Accuracy is about as good as it gets for a cycling GPS and battery life is adequate, better than the old 520/820. It also is compatible with Garmin's front mount battery in case you are going on any 200+ mile adventures or forgot to charge it at home. Overall I think it's a great unit and a big step up from the 820/520. Super happy with the upgrade.
