Live Segments and Advanced Metrics

Garmin Edge products are the only GPS bike computers to feature Strava

users can upload segments directly from Strava to their Edge 520 to
receive instantaneous data, compete for King of the Mountain or Queen of
the Mountain titles, and improve their personal bests. Additionally, the

through Garmin Connect segments. The Edge 520 provides new advanced
performance and power analysis to maximize training efforts. Advanced
metrics include time in zone, functional threshold power and watts/kg
tracking, cycling-specific VO2 max estimate, a recovery advisor and
cycling dynamics – revolutionary metrics that provide feedback to
cyclists on their position and pedal form.

instant sharing on social media, and with the Live Tracking feature
users can allow family and friends to follow their rides in real time.
Users can also stay connected with family and friends during a ride with
the Edge 520’s smart notifications that display incoming texts, calls
