Garmin Edge 520 Bike GPS GLONASS Cycle Computer Black
Youll also get alerts for segment start and finish and leaderboard rankings once you complete the segment. Need some motivation to get through those lonely miles on the indoor trainer?Edge 520 delivers with a suite of training capabilities when paired with compatible ANT+ indoor trainers. Lets say you want to train at an average power of 240 watts. Just set the target on Edge 520, start pedalling, and the trainer will automatically adjust to keep you at your target while the 520 shows your stats. You can also follow a course that you or another rider created and literally race the recorded stats, with the trainer adjusting resistance to match the elevation profile. Pair it with a power meter and Edge 520 offers an additional set of features, like FTP and watts/kg tracking, so you can compare yourself to others, as well as cycling dynamics. A built-in FTP test helps you establish your baseline either on the trainer or on the road. Add heart rate and the 520 can derive your VO2 max estimate and post-ride recovery time, which indicates how long before you should attempt another hard effort.
Andrew Coggan, iLevels are specific training levels based on an athletes unique physiology and current level of fitness. WKO4 software, developed by TrainingPeaks, has changed how coaches and athletes analyse data and prescribe workouts. Fully customisable charts allow you to view and compare specific data to gain clearer insights into your training. Based on the introduction of the power duration curve, WKO4 has introduced several new training metrics, including Functional Reserve Capacity and Pmax tracking, which help coaches and athletes track their specific fitness.The prescription of power-based training is derived from an athlete's Functional Threshold Power and targeted to general percentages. ILevels are based on the power duration curve and adjust automatically based on your performance. They detect micro changes in fitness to ensure you are always training at the right intensity. Now you can update iLevels directly from WKO4 by simply plugging in your Edge and automatically downloading the daily iLevels to your Garmin device. These iLevels will be displayed in a unique 9 levels view on the Garmin head unit and will be available in workouts.
