The Edge 1040 is Garmin's new flagship cycling computer. It's designed to deliver reliable ride data for activity tracking, navigation, training and racing and has tons of clever software to make sure that you get the most out of every ride. It brings a raft of updates and improvements over its predecessor, the Edge 1030, launching it into position as a market leader.
This new computer has all of the features that you know and love but with a bunch of added bonuses. It still links seamlessly with Garmin and 3rd party equipment using ANT+ and Bluetooth so you can monitor cadence, heart rate and power with the appropriate sensors. The large touch screen has greater contrast and dramatically improved responsiveness. This faster processing makes scrolling through maps a breeze but every interaction from navigating menus to swiping through data screens is made smoother.
Navigational accuracy is unmatched with multiband satellite navigation compatibility that will keep you on track, even in dense tree cover. Ride-type specific maps help to route you on the most popular trails so you can ride with local knowledge wherever you are in the world. You'll never have to worry about your computer dying halfway through a ride again, thanks to 35+ hours of battery life, so you can take on multiday rides without needing to charge up.
We've barely scratched the surface with this short introduction. There are more features on Edge 1040 than any rider is likely to use but that means if there's a stat you want to know or a function that you need, the Edge 1040 can certainly deliver. Whether you want to record massive rides and navigate off the beaten track or take your race training to new heights, you couldn't ask for a more capable tool than the Garmin Edge 1040.
