What customers say about "Key Specs"
Garmin Edge 800 Cycling GPS Computer-(Certified Refurbished)
  • I have already used it in two MTB races and it has been very accurate.
  • It is accurate, easy to use and read. I love it!
  • So far this thing is awesome. Really enjoy the gps and cadence program.
  • Great bike computer. Easy to use and provides all the info you could need.
  • With the cadence sensor adds a new level of indispensible information to your biking.
Garmin Edge 810 Bike GPS
  • In addition to GPS positioning and navigation it offers extensive connectivity to heart rate monitors as well as to digital speed and cadence sensors.
  • The display is highly customizable to show the data that you want to see during your ride, such as speed, distance covered, remaining distance, etc.
  • I like knowing my speed and distance and calories burned. It helps me to set goals for myself and push myself harder.
  • I'm taking it with me to every outing and shows the directions, time, distance, altitude, temperature and calories.
  • Full telemetry - pretty cool, and more than just a novelty. I see it as a safety device in case I'm ever in a crash.

What customers say about "Display"
Garmin Edge 800 Cycling GPS Computer-(Certified Refurbished)
  • The display is decent size, but not "iphone" quality.
  • Screen has great viewing in light and dark. Great value for the price!
  • There is not a lot of glare in the sun and it lights enough in the dark to read normally.
  • The maps are very helpful when you are ridding a course. Also the touch screen is very handy.
  • The touch screen is surprisingly easy to use in the cold/wet & bright sunlight.
Garmin Edge 810 Bike GPS
  • This unit is head and shoulders above that for visability/readability.
  • You can adjust the various screens (which you could with the 500) but the color and higher resolution makes it so much more readable!
  • Large screen for easy viewing while on the ride and touch screen makes it easy to navigate pages.
  • Following directions is easy and the large display makes it easy to see all your stats.
  • Touch screen is easy to use and change views on the go. Will recommend!

What customers say about "Features"
Garmin Edge 800 Cycling GPS Computer-(Certified Refurbished)
  • It has worked great both inside on a trainer and outdoors. Picks up location very quickly and connected easily to my Wahoo HRM, cadence and speed sensors.
  • The graphic depiction showing changes in elevation was a nice touch as well when reviewing our effort at the end of the day.
  • The edge 800 is exactly what I need - interactive, lots of data to geek out over but that I don't really need, separate bike profiles, and easily programmed gps navigation.
  • The customizable screens are great and it's nice to know its not all in my head when I think it feels way colder than it is (like weather.com said).
  • he ability to upload routes is a feature I found very handy this past week as I was able to have the route set to take us directly to our camp sites at the end of each day.
Garmin Edge 810 Bike GPS
  • I am cycling for fitness so I made an "Interval Training" workout on Garmin Connect and took me about 15 minutes.
  • They also made it easier to sync your ride to Strava. After uploading my ride to Garmin Connect thru my phone app my ride is already on Strava by the time I get in the house.
  • It's a bit pricey, but well worth but it has so many design features that none of the wireless or wired computers have.
  • The feature that I wanted most was to have the live tracking as I ride alone most of the time. It provides a peace of mind for others to know where I am and for myself.
  • The downloadable and free OpenStreetMap GPS maps work very well.
  • As noted by others, the Edge 810 freezes and stops navigating frequently. I would estimate that about 20% of my rides are associated with a malfunction of the unit before the ride is complete.

What customers say about "Battery"
Garmin Edge 800 Cycling GPS Computer-(Certified Refurbished)
  • I do RAGBRAI every year and this was so great to have! The battery lasts about 12 hrs of running it straight through.
  • The battery life is also great, using it for up to 12 hours per day, with at least 20% battery remaining at the end of each day. Charges quickly too.
  • Had mine for couple years now battery life is amazing over 100 miles 45% etc best computer device on the market :)
  • Battery life even with the backlight permanently on is very good. I lose about 15%-20% charge after a 90min ride with the backlight fully on.
  • The battery seems to be amazing, i've never run out and on a 3% charge i've managed to get it to run for 1hour with the screen on lowest setting, just to track my ride.
Garmin Edge 810 Bike GPS
  • I went on a long ride and was concerned about the battery lasting long enough while using the maps. So far it was about 10 hours of use and had 34% left when the ride was complete.
  • Good battery life, easy to read in the sun, and waterproof.
  • The device itself is very nice. Battery life, with GPS running, is solid.
  • The battery life seems pretty decent. Highly customizable but it takes some learning.
  • I have had zero problems with it. The battery lasts seemingly forever. It has never frozen.
