Garmin® introduces the Edge® 130 – a compact GPS bike computer designed for use on any ride

Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the Edge 130, a compact and lightweight, yet rugged, GPS bike
computer with easy-to-use navigation and unique cycling awareness
features. Whether riding on singletrack, wide-open trails or busy city
streets, the 1.8-inch sunlight-readable display gives cyclists a crisp
view of the screen while the five-button design provides greater ease of
use on any terrain. The Edge 130 is being announced in conjunction with
the 2018 Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, CA, and can be seen at the
Garmin booth (#184).

“Don’t let the size of the Edge 130 fool you – this cycling computer is
packed with features,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global
consumer sales. “Not only does the Edge 130 provide cyclists with the
ability to create courses in Garmin Connect™, but it’s also compatible
with our Varia™ line of cycling awareness devices and includes a suite
of smart features1, all in a rugged package.”

Using GPS, GLONASS and Galileo satellites, plus a built-in barometer,
the Edge 130 will provide greater coverage and more accurate ride data
so cyclists know how far, fast and high they ride. Before heading out,
riders can plan and download their routes on the improved and revamped
Course Creator in Garmin Connect, which uses Trendline™ popularity
routing to provide riders with the best road, mountain or gravel routes
that are aggregated from those most traveled by fellow cyclists. During
a ride, the Edge 130 provides easy-to-read course prompts and audible
turn cues that guide a cyclist on where to go next. If needed, it will
even direct users back to their starting location.

To help create a safer cycling environment, the Edge 130 is compatible
with the line of Varia cycling awareness products, like the new Varia
RTL510 Rearview Radar, UT800 smart headlight and more. The Edge 130
supports Bluetooth® and ANT+® for additional
sensor capabilities, including the Edge remote control – ideal for
mountain bikers looking to start and stop the timer, change the page or
mark a lap without taking their hands off the bars. For added peace of
mind, the Assistance1 feature can easily send a cyclist’s
location directly from the Edge 130 to emergency contacts in case they
run into difficulty, while LiveTrack1 lets friends and family
keep track of a rider’s location in real time.

The Edge 130 is designed to help increase performance with every ride.
When paired with a compatible power meter, users can train even harder
and see how many watts of power they’re producing. For added
competition, riders can race against Garmin and Strava Live Segments in
real time, allowing them to see a second-by-second comparison of how
their performance measures up against their competitor, not just their
overall average speed.

While out for a ride, the Edge 130’s smart connectivity features mean
cyclists won’t have to reach for their phone. Text messages will appear
on the device screen so cyclists can view them at a glance and keep on
riding. A new weather page will display current and forecasted
conditions, as well as weather alerts to help keep users from getting
stuck in a downpour. When paired with a compatible smartphone, the Edge
130 automatically uploads rides to the Garmin Connect online fitness
community and is customizable by downloading configurable data fields
from the Connect IQ™ store.

The Edge 130 features up to 15 hours of battery life2 and has
a suggested retail price of $199.99. A bundle option, which includes
speed and cadence sensors, has a suggested retail price of $249.99. A
mountain bike bundle, which includes a mountain bike mount, Edge remote
control and silicone case also has a suggested retail price of $249.99.

The Edge 130 is the latest innovation from the ever-expanding Garmin
fitness segment that develops technologies to enhance and promote
healthy and active lifestyles. Whether users are runners, cyclists,
swimmers, multi-sport athletes, or simply looking to stay active
throughout the day, there is a product that can help them reach their
health and fitness goals.

devices and applications that are designed for people who live an active
lifestyle. Garmin serves five primary business units, including
