For the athlete who trains and wants to use Garmin's excellent fitness features, there's the standard Edge 820, while for those who simply wish to explore their world and don't need much more than the maps and navigation features, there's the Edge Explore 820.
Loaded with cycling-specific maps and navigation that guides you along the best cycling routes, the 820 is a great ally for exploring. Wireless connectivity means you can easily sync up not only to your computer and phone, but to Strava, as well, to coordinate rides with your friends.
The standard 820 has loads of training-specific fitness features, and includes a feature that can even monitor your electronic drivetrain (Shimano Di2 or SRAM eTap) to help you figure out when and where you're most efficient on the bike.
Both the standard Edge 820 and the Edge Explore 820 come with built-in accelerometers that can detect sudden sharp stops in activity, which could indicate an accident, and then when enabled, automatically alert designated contacts (if you don't cancel the alert before then).
