Garmin Introduces Power Meter

Published August 18, 2011

OLATHE, KS (BRAIN)—Garmin International, a unit of Garmin Ltd., has unveiled Vector–a pedal based power meter.

Vector is the lightest weight direct measurement power meter on the market, according to the company, and designed for quick installation, portability, and ease-of-use. Taking only minutes to install, Vector provides accurate and reliable power data and uniquely measures and presents right and left leg power balance to ANT+ compatible head units.

Vector was announced in preparation for a world unveiling tour beginning at Australia’s Ausbike, then climbing to Germany’s Eurobike, and finally sprinting to Las Vegas’ Interbike where it will be prominently displayed at Garmin booths in each location.

“We are excited to get this innovative product into your hands–and under your feet,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales. “From picking it up at your local bike shop and installing at home in minutes, to giving you accurate and reliable total and independent leg power measurements, Vector becomes one of the most desirable solutions in the cycling market. It’s similar to going from 2D to 3D. There’s a richness in data and capabilities that come from the combination of our location of measurement–the pedals–and Vector’s sensor design.”
