Wahoo Elemnt Bolt and the Garmin Edge 530


The Edge 530 has been around for a few years, but remains a powerful option for those looking to keep track of all aspects of their training. Garmin’s computers offer lots of performanc­e monitoring – everything from VO2 max to recovery time to your current training load. The computer will even help you keep track of how you’re dealing with heat and altitude acclimatio­n. The computer can offer lots of insights on your cycling dynamics, too. The mapping features are extensive – everything from turn-by-turn directions and quick route calculatio­ns is covered with ease here. The Climbpro feature will even let you know how much more climbing you’ve got to go while you follow a route. The Edge 530 can also be paired with Garmin’s Varia rearview radar and lights, and will automatica­lly send location info if it detects that you’ve been in an accident. Set up is also really easy through the Garmin Connect app (it will automatica­lly grab informatio­n based on other devices you’ve used), and once you’re connected, you can get smart notificati­ons on the computer.—KM
