I've previously had an 820, then a 530 and now the 840. Really happy with the upgrade. The display is higher resolution and the UX is dramatically improved. The new features like Power Strategy and the dynamic Pro Climb are great additions. I'm very happy with having the option of using buttons or the touch screen -- bringing both was a smart move.
While the on-phone configuration is much improved, I still wish for more, as there are some things that you have to do on device. I'd rather have full capability to configure on the phone, as well as see the data that's on the 840.
All up, a great upgrade!
Used for my road bike. Major upgrade for me from old previous Garmin that only showed speed, distance, ave speed, and time. Got this to go with new bike and sensors. Great display. Not too large, but no problem reading. Love the climb pro that shows climbs ahead, % grade, and distance. Paired with Varia tail light and camera. Able to keep my head and eyes forward, and be alerted on traffic approaching from the rear. The geographic route display is nice too, but so far, I have not used it for any new routes that I needed the guidance. I did download some routes, though, from Ride with GPS, which wasn't too difficult after some initial phone support. I considered saving cost, going with the 540 edge, but all of the online evaluators advised to spend the extra for the touch screen. Definitely worth it. Makes operation much easier and more intuitive. For the length of my rides, the solar doesn't add a meaningful amount of time (15 minutes in full sun after about 3 hrs), and the battery life is more than adequate without this, but this one was on sale for just a bit more than the standard 840, so I figured might as well.
I have both a Wahoo Roam as well as the Hammerhead Karoo 2. I moved away from Garmin Edge a few years back given they hadn't really innovated as fast as their competitors then. I participated in Unbound 200 earlier in June and was concerned that neither Wahoo or Karoo would last the duration of the race - and based on encouragement from my race buddies, took the leap back to G Edge. Wow. Lots of new innovation including Power Guide, temp acclimation, recovery data and of course solar charging. This thing is a game changer. I'm immediately switching back all my bike mounts to Garmin.
Packed with features that can really dial in your training if you wanted it from Coach Garmin. I really wanted this devices for the extended battery life with the solar. No more low battery warning after 4hrs. My previous computer was 7 years old.
Really good unit that is easier to use and set-up now that you can use the Connect App to set up screens, etc. Typical of Garmin, however, there are some glitches that I cannot figure out. For example, my Strava segments won't carry over into this unit, but the unit has picked up other segments that I had not identified before. Not a big deal, but frustrating.
