Strava Live spreads across Garmin Edge range

Garmin has announced a software update for Edge 510, 810 and 1000 GPS computers that will increase their Strava compatibility, allowing access to Strava Live segments for Strava Premium athletes.

The software update brings the capabilities of these Edge models into line with the recently released Garmin Edge 520. The update will happen automatically when users connect their devices to Garmin Connect from 25 August onwards, so chances are if you've already plugged your Garmin in, the update has happened. 

Strava Live allows in-segment real time monitoring of a users performance in relation to personal best, or the time of the current King or Queen of the Mountain holder, plus features such as a countdown to segment start and live performance monitoring throughout. This also means you can post and boast your achievements as soon as you complete a segment.
