Hi all!

Looking for someone who wouldn't mind answering a few questions I have on the 530.

1. How long does the battery actually last, while using the HR Cadence and Speed sensor?

2. How long does the battery last if using a course navigation while riding?

Thanks in advance!

I can't give exact figures, but I navigated with my Garmin, was forced to take a few unexpected routes and it kept trying to recalculate the route, and while connected to HR and my Varia, the battery life was seriously reduced to about 6hours. Other times, when navigation has been 100% with no recalculating, or not used, battery life was great.

 

I guess that answer is as always 'it depends'.
