Tips for Using the Edge 1040 Solar Device

Solar charging is designed to optimize and extend the battery life of the device. Solar charging occurs even when the device is in sleep mode or turned off.

NOTE: This feature is not available on all models.
  • When you are not using the device, point the display toward sunlight to extend the battery life.
  • During an activity, scroll to the solar data page.

    The solar data page highlights the intensity of the current light conditions and the accumulated ride time gained from the solar energy, taking into account the current usage and battery consumption of the device.
