  • Solar charging: Power Glass™ solar charging lens on solar models extends battery life to up to 60 hours in battery saver mode, giving cyclists up to an extra 25 minutes per hour during daytime riding.

Rugged design

Ready for any ride – from remote gravel trails to grueling climbs – all Edge 540 and 840 Series models boast a 2.6-inch color display and feature button controls that work in any riding environment, while Edge 840 Series computers also include a responsive touchscreen. No matter where the next ride leads, Edge 540 and 840 Series offer an impressive battery life; non-solar models feature up to 26 hours of battery life in demanding use and up to 42 hours in battery saver mode, while solar models can provide even more ride time.

Crush every ride

Packed with advanced training metrics and navigational tools, Edge 540 and 840 Series are ready to help cyclists perform at their best. With insights from Firstbeat Analytics™ such as VO2 max, training status and training load, recovery time, and more, cyclists can see how their body is responding to their training efforts. When wearing a compatible Garmin smartwatch, cyclists can receive a more holistic view of their overall health and wellness with insights like Pulse Ox3, Body Battery™ energy monitoring, advanced sleep monitoring and sleep score, and more. 

During a ride, Edge 540 and 840 Series let riders see how their body holds up in different environments with heat and altitude acclimation and set up in-ride notifications when it’s time to refuel or rehydrate. What’s more, advanced cycling metrics provide riders with insights on performance while mountain bike metrics, including jump count, jump distance, grit, and flow help track the epic details of every ride. 

No matter where the path leads, advanced navigational features will keep cyclists on track. Updated mapping brings more of a community feel, with improved ride type-specific maps that use Trendline™ Popularity Routing to highlight popular roads and trails, plus searchable points of interest. Plus, both Edge 540 and 840 Series users have access to worldwide Trailforks trail content, letting cyclists view routes and trail details around the world. Meanwhile, route guidance and off-course notifications can now be paused while cyclists explore and can quickly be turned back on at any time to get riders back to their original route or starting point.

Stay connected

Cyclists can ride with peace of mind thanks to built-in safety and tracking features like LiveTrack, group messaging and incident detection for all cycling activities–including mountain biking. For added confidence while riding, Edge 540 and 840 Series are compatible with the Varia™ line of cycling radars and headlights, as well as inReach® devices with SOS capabilities and communication when off-the-grid.

When it’s time to take training indoors, Edge 540 and 840 Series easily pair to Tacx® indoor smart trainers for year-round riding. Whether riding indoors or out, riders can take advantage of the Garmin Connect app to create and send courses to an Edge device, view all the technical details from a ride, log personal achievements, gauge how training is trending and more. Plus, for those looking to customize their cycling computer, the Connect IQ™ Store smartphone app offers custom data fields, apps, and widgets that can easily be downloaded to the Edge device.

Out of the box, device setup is simple as ever—a quick and easy experience to access information, courses, and training tools. Plus, users can adjust data fields directly from the Edge device or from a paired compatible smartphone.
