Today Garmin has released two new, very cool, products. The Garmin Edge 510 and Garmin Edge 810. You can find out more information about them with some of the information below.
The key feature for the two new devices are the ability to pair the devices with your phone, and using that connection, upload your training data real time to Garmin Connect. I am curious to see if this feature gets extended and used by other services such as Strava. I know there is already a Strava app for Android and IPhone, but imagine if the Strava app talked to your Garmin device directly.

Train on the Edge
The touchscreen Edge 510 is designed for the competitive cyclist who seeks the most accurate and comprehensive ride data. It offers connected features¹ through your smartphone, including live tracking, weather and social media sharing. Whether you're training, racing or touring, Edge 510 tracks the details of your ride, and you can view it later on a map at Garmin Connect™. Compatible with GPS and GLONASS satellites for faster satellite acquisition and improved signal lock, the 510 is suited for the most challenging conditions, such as canyons.
Track Every Detail
The 510 records your distance, speed metrics, ascent/descent, grade and more. Take your training farther with ANT+™-compatible sensors that measure your heart rate², speed/cadence² and power³. The activity profiles feature allows you to customize data fields and device settings based on cycling activity, such as training or racing. Switch profiles with a simple swipe of the touchscreen and your device will be set up to show the data you need for that ride. When you complete a ride, the 510 displays any new personal records you achieved, such as farthest distance, most ascent gained and more.
