The last two weeks must have been crazy at Garmin. With a total of 5 new products announced (6 if we count the new dual-connect speed/cadence meter), many of us are already looking at where we can buy the latest Garmin Forerunner and Garmin Edge.

Let me tell you... it's not easy. While the only one that seems to have any more distribution is the Garmin Forerunner 245The rest of the models are only in previous reservation or have some kind of exclusivity agreement, so it will be better to treat each case in particular.

Buy Garmin Forerunner 945

It is perhaps the most sought after, yet the least found. It seems that Garmin has an exclusive European agreement and the only seller that has it available is Wiggle.

Garmin Forerunner 945 - Music, Maps and Garmin PayThey are in stock realEven Garmin doesn't have units available on its own site, which announces it for the second quarter of the year.

There is no store in Spain that has announced it or is taking reservations, and in Europe only two or three wholesalers have opened a reservation period to start delivering units during June.

So if you want to buy a Garmin FR945 now, you have to buy it from Wiggle. At least their service is good and they always meet their deadlines. And you don't have to worry about the warranty, because Garmin's is Europe-wide.

>> Buy Garmin Forerunner 945 Triathlon Pack

I remind you that you have two possibilities. On the one hand, the watch without any sensor (only with the wrist strap) and with a black strap that has a price of 599 ?. The second option is the triathlon pack, in blue and with the sensors HRM-Tri, HRM-Swim included, plus the quick release kit and an additional black strap.

Check out all the details in the Garmin Forerunner 945's first information article.

Buy Garmin Forerunner 245

The Garmin Forerunner 245 I put it in quotes because at least it is possible to see it in some European distributor.

Where to buy the latest Garmin 1In Spain it seems to be El Corte Inglés They have both Garmin Forerunner 245 and Garmin Forerunner 245 Music in stock, although I've been to four physical locations and none of them had units, so it seems that it hasn't reached all of them.

And when it comes to buying on the Internet, I don't really trust the service of El Corte Inglés, which is not exactly known for its good work. I might deliver it within 24 hours... but if you send it within two weeks, nothing happens either.

So once again Wiggle is the ideal choice for online shopping. They have all the colors in stock and you can have it home in two days guaranteed. Again, with a two-year warranty through Garmin.

>> Buy Garmin Forerunner 245 Music

The choice of colours varies depending on whether you want the normal variant or with the possibility of playing music. The former costs 299 euros and is in black or maroon. The FR245 Music, priced at 349 euros, can be bought in black (with red accents), white with a black bezel and black with an aquamarine strap.

Remember that the only difference between the two is that FR245 offers the possibility of listening to music through a Bluetooth headset, and that it has WiFi for synchronization.

Full details on the Garmin Forerunner 245 in the first information article.

Buy Garmin Forerunner 45

It is the only one of the new watches that is not yet available and that, although you can book now, you will not receive it until the middle of May. This includes both models: the normalGarmin Forerunner 45- and the one that's slightly smallerGarmin Forerunner 45S-.

Garmin Forerunner 45

El Corte Inglés does offer it for booking, but again I'm sticking with Wiggle's delivery service.

>> Buy Garmin Forerunner 45S

And remember, the only difference between the two models is the size of the watch, the FR45S is slightly smaller than the FR45, perfect for narrower wrists.

See the rest of the details of the Garmin Forerunner 45 in the introductory article.

Buy Garmin Edge 530

Garmin Edge 530 and Garmin Edge 830We now move on to the Edge cycling units. Of the two new models it is the Garmin Edge 530 the one that is going to hit the hardest since it is the cyclocomputer that offers the most, by far, for the 299 euros that it costs.

There are only two differences from the Garmin Edge 830The Edge 530 does not have a touch screen (which some may even prefer) and even though it has a full map of Europe, it does not allow you to create a route directly from your device and we are forced to create it from your phone or computer and then synchronize it.

At the moment there is no availability anywhere in spite of being announced in many pages. However, we are not allowed to make a reservation for our unit, so it's time again to come back to Wiggle to leave yours reserved. Deliveries will be made in the middle of May.

>> Buy Garmin Edge 530 pack MTB

>> Buy Garmin Edge 530 Performance Pack

The difference between the packs is what they include. Personally I think that the MTB pack is not very interesting, but that the Performance pack is a good option if you currently have no sensors. And remember that in the case of the speed and cadence sensors it is the new version, which includes dual Bluetooth/ANT+ connectivity.

Buy Garmin Edge 830

As I was saying earlier on Garmin Edge 530 is going to be "the one who's going to blow it," but this Edge 830 review can be a good option for those who are also looking for navigation options on the computer itself and do not want a unit as big as the Garmin Edge 1030.

Remind yourself that on the Edge 830, thanks to its touch screen, you can create a route directly from the computer screen, and it also has an extensive database of points of interest that can help you if you're in an unfamiliar area.

As with the Edge 530 the delivery dates are exactly the same, so if you book your unit now you should receive it by mid-May. The price is £399, less interesting than the model without a touch screen, but still cheaper than the Edge 1030.

The packs are the same in both cases. Anyway, don't forget to take a look at the full features of the two models in the Garmin Edge 530 and Garmin Edge 830 introductory article.


 

In my case I am waiting to get a Forerunner 945 triathlon pack that will be the one I will use as a reference in the comparison with other models. But in my case I have no other choice than to wait for a national seller because, for tax reasons, I need an invoice issued in Spain.

Remember that by buying through the links I provide you will be helping with a small commission to the page, which is how the page is maintained. So if you do it that way... thank you very much!

  1. Hi Eduardo, I practice cycling and I have already suffered two accidents with a vehicle behind me.
    I have a Garmin radar Varia ,and an Edge 1000 but for me it is not enough, I want to see it with real time images.
    My question is if it is possible to put a small gopro or similar camera on the back of the bike that records and I can see in real time on the screen of my iphone the vehicles coming from behind and more or less with an autonomy of 1 hour 30 minutes or two hours.
    Is it possible that on the screen of the iphone I see continuously the rear movements of my bike, and if by autonomy it does not arrive recording at least see the image live even if it does not record, but keep the image live for about two hours?
    Or Garmin has a new model that performs this function
    Thank you and a greeting Eduardo

    1. You could make use of the preview option. You could put an adapter in the saddle and the camera facing backwards. I think the two hours of autonomy you could reach it in the camera and without problems in the mobile except for the fact that you have to put the brightness very high.

    1. In the GoPro application of the mobile phone, the function that serves to view the camera frame from a distance.
