Garmin Varia Smart Headlight
This is the most advanced front light in the world, not because it offers 600 lumens, high and low beam or a battery life of 2.5 hours but the following. Works independently and seamlessly integrates with compatible Edge® cycling computers. As rider’s speed increases, the headlight automatically projects further ahead or closer as a rider’s speed decreases when paired with select Edge computers. As light conditions change, the smart Varia headlights automatically get brighter or dimmer, when paired with a light-sensing Edge 1000. Adjustments, including on/off, can be made manually with the use of an included remote.
Garmin Varia Smart Headlight helps to create safer riding by adjusting to changing light conditions as well as bike speed when paired with select Edge computers. As speed increases, the headlight automatically projects light further ahead to where it’s needed most. As ambient light fades or gets brighter, it adjusts automatically when paired with a light-sensing Edge 1000 bike computer. Beam cut off prevents headlight from blinding oncoming drivers. The Varia line of cycling awareness products also includes rearview radar that can alert you, through compatible Edge bike computers or a head unit, when traffic behind you is getting close. The radar picks up cars or trucks at 150 yards (140 meters) and can track multiple targets as they approach. The rear light also warns approaching vehicles to a cyclist ahead. Compatible devices are the Garmin Edge 1000 and the Garmin Edge 520.
