Garmin Edge Explore 820 Vs Edge 820 differences for cyclists

By Peter Chubb - Jul 13, 2016

There are those of you that just enjoy a relaxing bike ride, whereas there are other cyclists that love getting together as a group, as it’s a way to keep everyone much closer when you are that more serious.

Thankfully, Garmin have the answer with two new products that cater for varying needs, and these are the Edge 820 and the Edge Explore 820. Both of these models cater for the cyclists enthusiast, albeit with a few different features, which we will get to in a moment. All we will say is that if you are after a miniature computer that offers up details if a rider has to split, or if a person in your group wipes out, then these are ideal for the job because they will keep you fully informed.

Before seeing how the two compare, we have noticed that the screen on both these are 2.3 inches, which are smaller than that of the Edge 810, although they do come preloaded with Cycle Map, and also offers support for Garmin Varia gear, such as the Vision headset.

Looking over some of the main differences we can see that the Edge 820 does add deeper performance monitoring for the likes of max oxygen volume, although only if you have a heart monitor strap, ANT+ device support and also mid-ride Strava challenges.

A complete breakdown of the Garmin Edge Explore 820 Vs Edge 820 differences can be found on the official UK website, where you get to see a comparison of the Physical & Performance, Maps & Memory, Cycling Features, Performance Features, and Additional features.

As for price, the Garmin Edge Explore 820 price is £279.99, and the Edge 820 will cost you £329.99.
