This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Sold my Edge 130 as it didn't offer much over a GPS watch and have been waiting on a price drop for the 530 but as it's such a new device I thought I would be waiting longer than this.

Garmin headunits have taken some flack in the past (deservedly) but they seem to have cracked it this time going by the reviews from DCR | 5kRunner.

No discounts to be had anywhere thanks to Garmin's strict control on pricing for new devices so you may as well buy directly from them. If you are a Vitality customer then you can get 25% off the list price too so this is only costing me £144.99 after the cashback.

Good price for this. I have this same unit and paid a bit more, but got one of the bundle kits so don't mind too much.

Regarding stability, sadly there's been a few issues with the 530 since launch, but a few firmware was pushed to beta last week and seems to have fixed most of the reported issues. My own device has been completely stable, so YMMV anyway.
A good price, and the DCR reviews are positive, but almost all the serious cyclists seem to be migrating to wahoo these days. Speaking only for myself, I’ve found Garmin units unreliable more than should be the case, and their customer service for RMA is really poor.

I'm sorry, but in my experience this just isn't the case at all. While there are a fair number using Wahoos now, my experience of my own club is that the ratio is still 10:1 in favour of Garmin.

There has definitely been a trend towards Wahoo but it's still small. If this series of Garmins doesn't improve then I would expect a bigger shift. Wahoo could drop prices of course
I can vouch for them being pretty rugged - I bought a cheap "out front" mount which failed and flipped my 530 into the middle of the road. Luckily it wasn't driven over, but while bruised it still works fine.
Love my 530.

Amazing little unit. Decent metrics. Easy to use.

I bought an after market mountain bike mount for mine and it sits well and out of the way in my handlebars.

I looked at the wahoo. I liked the LED idea, but the 530 managed to beat it for my needs.

I’ve added 3rd party maps to mine for off road use. It’s made a huge difference. And it works perfectly with a chest strap, cadence sensor, speed sensor etc for further metrics.
OP did you get the prepay card on this as in the Vitality T&Cs it looks like it's not compatible with any Garmin offers?

Not applied yet, got to wait 30 days. I'd be surprised if it doesn't though.

I've gone for it anyway - worth a shot! Thanks!
