The Edge 530 has been a great addition to my cycling. With the integration w Garmin Connect, its very easy to create training workouts, custom routes, and also more detailed performance stats from each of my rides. I've used it for both road, gravel, and mountain biking and its well suited for each discipline. The battery life is solid. I've only done 1 longer (5 hours) ride with it, but had no concerns of it dying somewhere along the way. Normally, I use it for several 60-90 minute rides a week and typically only charge it once every other week. It integrates seamlessly with all of my sensors (garmin speed and cadence), heart rate strap (garmin chest strap), and lights (garmin varia headlight, garmin varia radar). It has changed my cycling experience. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that periodically there are some small annoyances like auto downloads restarting your ride, but these are few and far between.
Great dual mount however it starts rattling on the first 20 miles of the second 50 miles ride. Turned out, the front piece unscrewed itself from the main body. Its a nuisance to tighten the screw every after ride but I kept it due to its purpose to clean up the cockpit. Well worth the money I spent.
It took me awhile to pull the plug on purchasing this watch. I already had the apple watch but wanted something that offered more on tracking data that didn't need to be recharged every evening. I read all the reviews and comparisons to the apple watch. I finally pulled the trigger and so happy that I did. This watch has everything you might need and more. If you like the technical data, it's all there. It's easy to set up and work with (even for the un-technical types). Easy to connect all of your gadgets (wireless ear buds, Garmin, Wahoo, music, etc). While the price tag is a bit steep, I feel you get what you pay for. I have tiny wrists and the 5S Plus looks great! I'm glad I made the purchase.
