Garmin Edge 1040 Solar - GPS Bike Computer with Solar Charging Capabilities - Device Only
Edge® 1040 Solar is powered by the sun and packed with everything under it. It’s our first GPS bike computer with solar charging and multi-band GNSS technology, so you can ride longer and get even better coverage under dense tree cover or the urban canyon. The Edge 1040 Solar bike computer also has performance features that help you understand your strengths and weaknesses. When paired with your compatible sensors, it can even help you manage your efforts by providing power targets throughout a course and stamina feature insights, so you know how much gas is left in the tank. And the setup is simple, so you can take it out of the box and be out riding in no time.
The Power Glass solar charging lens extends battery life, giving you up to 100 hours in battery saver mode or up to 45 hours in demanding use cases. During daytime rides, it adds up to 42 minutes per hour in battery saver mode and up to 20 minutes per hour in demanding use cases1.
While you ride, get stamina2 insights so you can keep an eye on how much you have left in the tank.
