Unlike its predecessors that were focused on logging ride data, the all new Garmin Edge Touring and Edge Touring Plus navigation systems are all about showing the way. Packed with extensive maps, users can plot routes using destinations, points of interests, or just by telling the Edge how long they intend to ride for.
The Garmin Edge Touring and Touring plus are identical looks-wise, water-resistant and feature a 2.6-inch touchscreen interface while the Plus includes a barometric altimeter for more accurate tracking of changes in altitude and is compatible with Ant+ peripheral devices such as heart-rate monitors and power meters.
Both devices claim to have a battery life of 15 hours while folks who require more will be able to purchase the optional Garmin powermonkey eXplorer external battery pack. Look out for the full Garmin Edge Touring and Edge Touring Plus reviews soon!
