Performance Analysis:
Edge 530 goes beyond simple data collection to deliver dynamic insights into your performance, so you can beat your best at every turn. Find out how your body adapts to different conditions with heat and altitude acclimatisation. Receive notifications during the tour when it's time for a food/water break. Look at whether your tours of the last training week were balanced in terms of endurance, threshold and intensity. Pair the device with compatible Garmin sensors to view a power graph comparing the effort of the ride with data from previous weeks and months. No matter where you train, you can sync structured workouts from TrainingPeaks and the Garmin Connect online fitness community directly to your Edge. You can also view the upcoming training for the week and seamlessly start the corresponding training session if needed.

If you're looking for a change of pace, mountain biking with the Edge 530 is the way to go. First, download the free Trailforks app from the Connect IQ shop, and then use the Trailforks map content on the Edge. Trailforks offers trails from more than 80 countries with up-to-date information, including conditions, heat maps and more. When you make a pit stop, the new Forksight mode automatically displays upcoming forks in the road. Using the Trail network allows you to also see where you are for a better overview of your location. During your tour, Edge 530 stores the best details with new mountain bike metrics like number of jumps, jump distance and airtime. There are other mountain bike features, such as Grit, which uses GPS, altitude and accelerometer data to grade the difficulty of the ride, and Flow, which tells you how smooth your riding is on downhill rides so you have values to beat next time.

Climbs can become your secret weapon with the Edge 530 and the new ClimbPro function. The feature automatically shows you the remaining ascent and slope when you follow a route or track going uphill. This way you can see how much you still have to do, and you can better assess your performance for the rest of the tour.

Whether you're exercising with others or commuting to work, safety is an important consideration with the Edge 530. Send group messages or use GroupTrack to stay in touch if you get separated from your party (pairing with smartphone required). Accident Detection sends your position automatically to emergency contacts when an adverse event is detected. Pair Edge 530 with Varia radar and Varia bike lights to make sure you can see and be seen.
A newer function is the bicycle alarm. It utilises PIN protection, and lets you receive a notification on your smartphone when your bike is moved, such as when you are inside getting water or taking a short break.

Shimano STEPS E-Bike System:
When you pair a compatible Edge bike computer with a supported Shimano STEPS e-bike, you'll see a dedicated e-bike status page, data fields and support for system status and alerts. In addition to Edge data such as time, distance and speed, you can also see information on motor assistance, gear position, battery life and remaining range during a tour.
