Garmin announced today, the launch of its Varia Vision, an in-sight display that helps enhance cyclists’ road awareness by putting information in their line of sight.
Varia Vision’s versatile mounting design easily attaches to cyclists’ sunglasses and displays key data from a compatible device, including performance data, turn-by-turn directions, incoming smart notifications and more. When paired with the first-of-its-kind Varia rearview radar system Varia Vision warns users of traffic approaching from behind.
“We’re extremely excited to announce the next device in our line of innovative Varia cycling awareness products – the Varia Vision in-sight display,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of worldwide sales. “Cyclists can now easily view their data and receive alerts during a ride without needing to take their eyes off the road ahead.”
Featuring eight hours of always-on battery life and a glove and wet-weather friendly touch panel to rotate between data displays, Varia Vision makes it easier than ever for cyclists to keep focus while riding. Its adaptable mounting allow it to attach on either arm of the glasses with a fully adjustable arm and eyepiece for optimum display positioning. In addition, Varia Vision features a durable, weatherproof design while weighing approximately only one ounce (29.7 grams) for maximum comfort, and its integrated ambient light sensor and color display ensure readability in all conditions.
Users can connect Varia Vision with one of Garmin’s a compatible Edge devices for integrated, customizable data screens to easily view performance stats and turn-by-turn prompts, including distance to turn plus street name and directional arrows. Furthermore, Varia Vision also connects with Varia rearview radar for in-ride, in-sight visibility of vehicles approaching from behind.
Varia Vision also features vibration alerts for performance, navigation, or cycling awareness prompts, as well as incoming smart notifications allowing cyclists to receive alerts for incoming calls, texts and more without taking their eyes off the road.
According to Garmin, Varia Vision will be available starting in March, for $399.99.
