Excerpt: The Garmin Edge 810 has ANT+ sensor compatibility, map support and turn-by-turn navigation. It also features a bright color screen and a touch interface. Like the other bike computers in the Garmin Edge line, the Edge 810 can connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth. The Garmin Edge 810 is our Top Ten Reviews Bronze Award winner.
Pros: The Edge 810 has turn-by-turn navigation and compatibility with ANT+ sensors. It can connect with your smartphone to add live GPS tracking and automatic ride upload.
Cons: The Edge 810 is bulky, and the map-based navigation is the only feature that separates it from the next cheapest option in the Garmin Edge line.
Conclusion: The Edge 810 is Garmin's top-of-the-line bike computer, and took our Editor's Choice award for a combination of ease of use and the amount of functional features. After testing in a variety of conditions, the Edge 810 held up in snow and rain, navigated us through unknown roads, and kept us focused during workouts.
Summary: The latest and greatest of Garmin’s cycle-specific GPS computers is more than just a colour tweak and screen res upgrade. Which is lucky, because while it does get the former, it doesn’t get the latter – it has the same screen size and resolution as its 800 precursors. Having been hoping for a crispy new screen, we might have been edging for the door at this point, were it not for promised UI enhancements and new Bluetooth connectivity options.
