Garmin introduces Vector S

Garmin, the global leader in satellite navigation, is pleased to introduce its latest innovation in cycling technology – the Vector S, a single-sensing pedal-based power meter. Measuring forces on the left pedal to approximate total power, the Vector S reports power, cadence and more with the option for users to easily upgrade to a dual-sensing system.


Its single-sensing system provides cyclists with reliable, accurate data, measuring power output at the pedal where force is applied, giving them the chance to track and improve their fitness. The Vector S calculates power (watts) at various time intervals, measures cadence with its built-in accelerometer, and sends the data to compatible Edge® cycling computers or other ANT+™ enabled devices. It works by measuring the deflection in the pedal spindle as users pedal and can be transferred between bikes in minutes.


Andrew Silver, Garmin EMEA Product Manager for fitness, comments, “Power metrics are more accessible than ever with the Vector S’s affordable and flexible single-sensing system. It allows cyclists to start receiving the benefits of tracking power output right away, while its upgrade pedal gives them the opportunity for unique additional metrics – without having to invest in a whole new system.”


For the elite cyclist, an upgrade pedal can be purchased which, when paired with the Vector S, makes a complete Vector power meter system, delivering direct left/right accuracy and providing advanced metrics including left/right balance data, and Cycling Dynamics2.


The Vector S is available to buy now, RRP: £749.99
