The Garmin Edge 1040 Solar GPS Cycle Computer is powered by the sun. It will charge itself as you ride and extends battery life up to 45 hours, compared to 35 hours of battery life on the standard non-solar model.
The Edge 1040 Solar is Garmin’s first bike computer to combine solar charging with multi-band GNSS technology for even better coverage under dense tree cover, on remote mountain trails and even in the urban canyon. It’s also packed with performance features that help you understand your strengths and weaknesses to coach you through any challenge. It can even help you manage your efforts by providing power targets throughout a course and stamina feature insights, so you know how much gas is left in the tank. And the setup is simple, so you can take it out of the box and be out riding in no time.
As well as all the clever training features the Edge 1040 Solar is loaded up with maps and turn by turn directions so you never get lost. Ride like a local, whatever your bike type, with improved maps that highlight popular roads and trails plus searchable points of interest. Off-course notifications while you go off-course to explore. When you’re ready to get back on track, Edge 1040 will show you the way. You can keep exploring all day as the Edge 1040 will get up to 45 hours of battery life, and up to 100 hours in battery saver mode.

Before we go onto the computers themselves it’s worth just quickly mentioning Garmin’s wider product range. Garmin make a range of smart watches, heart rate monitors and power meters which can all be connected to a Garmin computer. They also own the Tacx range of turbo trainers. You can sync training data from all of these devices through the Garmin Connect system and then share it with Strava and other platforms automatically. You can also use this system to plot rides onto maps, or download rides other people have been made, and load them onto your cycle computer to get turn by turn directions. It’s this connected ecosystem which helps to make Garmin computers so popular.
