The Garmin Edge 830 is big improvement for Garmin's 800 computer series, with an impressive and improved touchscreen

Cycling Weekly Verdict

With the Garmin Edge 830 it feels like Garmin has finally nailed the touchscreen. It's responsive and actually makes the device easier to use which, after all, is the whole point of it in the first place. A couple of software bugs still remain, but on the whole the the Garmin Edge 830 is up there with the best of Garmin's range.

We absolutely loved using the Garmin Edge 830 and were very impressed by its design and excellent touchscreen. For those reasons, it has landed itself a spot on our Editor’s Choice list for 2019. 

The Garmin Edge 800 range of devices has lived in one guise or another for quite few years now. In 2011, the original Garmin Edge 800 was born – the first to feature a touchscreen.
