Building upon the much-loved Edge 810, the Garmin Edge 1000 not only includes a higher resolution touchscreen, it also features Bluetooth 4.0, incoming call and text notifications (iOS compatible only), and WiFi, propelling it to the forefront of usability. It still features the navigation, mapping capabilities, uploads to social media, and love tracking of the Edge 810. Additionally, the Garmin Connect Mobile App syncs your Edge 1000 with your phone to provide such information as weather alerts. Once your ride is done, the data seamlessly uploads wirelessly so you won(tm)t need to connect with your laptop. The Edge 1000 is also designed to work with Shimano(tm)s Di2 electronic drivetrain using Shimano(tm)s D-Fly Data Management function that transmits gearing and battery information to your Garmin head unit.
The screen simplifies your data viewing by distinguishing between training and racing. It(tm)s fully customizable so that you always have the pertinent information at your fingertips, and it even allows you to set multiple bike profiles from mountain to road. Garmin(tm)s HRM3 heartrate strap and the magnet-less speed/cadence sensor are included to round out the package and provide enough training info to keep you looking at your uploads into the wee hours of the night. The data is handled by ANT+.
