The Garmin Edge 1030 provides plenty of screen for apps like Training Peaks and Strava Live Segments.
If you're trying to reach a particular fitness level before a big event later in the year or you just want to pace your local climb better, then having the right data can be a massive help.
Heart rate data is great for tracking the effect of your training over a long period, allowing you to plan training sessions to meet a target.
This is particularly useful if your goal event is a long way off as you can break down a huge amount of training into easily manageable chunks.
For anyone that just wants to stick with the group ride for longer cadence and heart rate can be used to set a sustainable pace, very similar to the tactic that Chris Froome and Tom Dumoulin both use.
The 1030 also gives you brilliant apps to use for following training sessions and chasing KoMs. The Training Peaks app allows you to follow created structured training sessions. You get a countdown into and out of each interval and a clear picture of the power figures that you need to be hitting. The Strava app makes chasing your favourite KoMs much easier with a clear indication of your live position compared to the current leader. The only thing we’d suggest is to avoid chasing a KoM held by a pro. It’s depressing how quickly they go, especially on the climbs!
