Garmin Edge 200 budget GPS cycling computer

Almost lost in the expensive news of their new Vector power-measurement pedal system last week, Garmin also released the new Edge 200 for cyclists on the other end of the pay scale.

Incorporating basic features like speed, distance, time and calories burned, the $150 Edge 200 also surprises with a few training features borrowed from the 500 and 800. With Courses, you can trace a previously ridden route of your own or download a route from Garmin Connect. A ghost cyclist shows whether you’re beating your last time, goading you into riding faster.

While it won’t provide navigation or power measurement, it does store your route using GPS (which is also how it detects your speedn – there are no sensors added to your bike, just strap it on, power it up and go), storing up to 130 hours of ride data in its memory. Then, simply upload it via USB to Garmin Connect (or, presumably, Strava, etc.) to see your route with elevation, speed, max speed and more.

It should be available this fall. Video after the break…

I wish it had cadence.

Finally, the price makes sense for mappers. I see this replacing my smartphone app…

If it had a clock and stopwatch I would buy one.

If it picks up signal as reliably and quickly as my 800, I think it’ll be a hit.

I wonder how long before Cateye and other non-gps bike computer makers start incorporating GPS in their units? How long before SRM and PowerTap become GPS enabled?

thomas,
It does have both a clock and a stopwatch. The picture on the left shows ride time and the picture on the right shows a clock.

Thanks WannaBe, but I wonder if the Ride Time is re-settable independently (without changing distance ridden or avg. speed). That would make it effectively a stop-watch function.

Anyone know if it can do lap times? Would be a good race day computer.
