Garmin® introduces the Edge® 1030 – the ultimate GPS bike computer with enhanced navigation, performance and safety features

New Trendline popularity routing allows cyclists to ride with greater confidence

Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the Edge 1030, a high-end cycling computer that combines
enhanced navigation, performance and cycling awareness into a
lightweight design. Using billions of miles of ride data from Garmin
Connect™, new Trendline™ popularity routing provides cyclists with the
best on and off-road routes possible, allowing them to ride with greater
confidence. Whether hitting the trails or streets, cyclists will benefit
from the Edge 1030’s preloaded Garmin Cycle Maps that feature
turn-by-turn directions for all terrains, and alerts to sharp curves

Ideal for riding no matter the weather conditions, the Edge 1030
features a 3.5-inch high-resolution, capacitive touch panel display that
is quick and responsive – even when wet or used with gloves. Ambient
light sensors automatically adjust the screen’s brightness making
important key training metrics and advanced performance monitoring tools
easier than ever to view day or night.

“Whether a competitor, commuter or adventure-seeker, we’ve found a
better ride for all cyclists with the newest addition from Garmin – the
Edge 1030,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer
sales. “This innovative GPS cycling computer is compatible with our
suite of cycling products, including the new Vector™ 3 and 3S power
meter, as well as our Varia™ cycling awareness products like the Varia
Rearview Radar and the Varia UT800 Smart Headlight. This means cyclists
can now ride farther and more often thanks to the most advanced,
intuitive and motivating ride data to date.”

Enhancements in navigation and course planning on the Edge 1030 were
made with the cyclist in mind. New Trendline popularity routing uses
billions of miles of ride data from Garmin Connect to provide riders
with the best road, mountain or gravel routes that are aggregated from
those most traveled by fellow cyclists. Using the improved and revamped
Course Creator in Garmin Connect allows cyclists to generate even more
bike-friendly routes based on popularity data.

Preloaded on the Edge 1030, the Garmin Cycle Map includes turn-by-turn
navigation and new alerts that notify riders of sharp curves ahead.
While riding, cyclists will receive elevation information, see points of
interest and be able to search for addresses – all right on their
screen. By inputting a distance and starting direction, the Edge 1030
will give riders up to three round-trip routes to choose from and will
guide cyclists back to the route if they stray away. Built-in GPS,
GLONASS and altimeter sensor capabilities also provide accurate ride
data so cyclists know how far, fast and high they ride.

While out for a ride, the Edge 1030’s smart connectivity features mean
cyclists won’t have to reach for their phone. New rider-to-rider
messaging1 lets cyclists send prewritten messages directly
from their Edge 1030 to other riders using the Edge 1030. Cyclists can
also view and respond to missed calls or texts2 with
prewritten replies. Built-in incident detection3 will
automatically send a cyclist’s location to emergency contacts if they
run into trouble, while GroupTrack4 and LiveTrack5
let friends, family and other cyclists keep track of a rider’s location
in real time.

The Edge 1030 comes with the latest version of Strava Live Segments,
featuring more competition and better segments. Cyclists who upgrade to
Strava Premium will gain access to everything from real-time races
against their personal best, to the most popular nearby segments.
Cyclists can star their favorite Strava segments, and while riding, will
receive an upcoming segment alert as they approach a start. Riders will
then receive second-by-second, real-time comparisons of their
performance against their most relevant competitor and will race against
their actual speeds – not just their average. The new Segment Explore
feature lets riders view popular and marquee segments around them
directly on their Edge. Preloaded with the new Strava Routes Connect IQ
app, starred routes can now be wirelessly synced to the Edge 1030 so
cyclists can navigate and compete on their favorite Strava segments at
the same time6.

Installed on the Edge 1030, the new TrainingPeaks Connect IQ app puts
daily workouts right on the Edge device. It guides cyclists through a
workout in real time – complete with intensity targets and interval
durations. After a workout, syncing to TrainingPeaks will provide
cyclists with a detailed analysis of their ride, as well as the ability
to measure progress toward their goals.

Linking the Best Bike Split Race Sync app with an Edge 1030 means
cyclists will have all their current race plans available at their
fingertips. Best Bike Split allows riders to see how changes in weight,
power and drag affect their goal race time, while helping to create the
perfect power plan for race day.

The Edge 1030 works with the new flush mount, keeping the device in line
with the handlebars – not above them – giving it a lower profile.
Featuring up to 20 hours of battery life7, the Edge 1030 is
compatible with the new Garmin Charge™ integrated battery pack accessory
for in-ride charging and power, giving riders up to 40 hours to finish
even on the longest of rides. The Edge 1030 has a suggested retail price
of $599.99. A bundle option, which includes a premium heart rate monitor
as well as cadence and speed sensors, has a suggested retail price of
