Varia Smart Devices
Motorists aren't always looking out for you on the roads. That's why we've developed the Varia line of smart bike devices to help create a safer riding environment. The Varia family includes a rearview radar system, smart bike lights and a new in-sight display, Varia Vision.
Varia rearview radar warns cyclists of traffic approaching from behind up to 140 meters, and integrates seamlessly with compatible Garmin devices.
Smart Bike Lights
Not so long ago, rumors of glasses with live-stream data updating straight into your line of vision would've still been relegated to futuristic movies and science fiction novels. Now, they're changing the way we train. Mount Garmin's Varia Vision onto either arm of your sunglasses and see metrics like speed, distance, and cadence cleanly arranged in front of you on the 428 x 240 pixel display, delivered from your bike computer. Choose from up to four different fields to look at as you ride, and receive navigational updates to keep you looking up at the road rather than distractedly glancing to look at a bar-mounted computer every few minutes. Weighing under 30 grams, the Varia Vision won't feel cumbersome as you ride, and it's built to withstand surprise rain showers with a waterproof rating of IPX7. Addressing criticisms that technology dulls athletes' awareness of the world around them, the Varia Vision is equipped to inform you when a car is approaching from behind, and it was built to communicate seamlessly with existing Garmin computers using ANT+ to give you uncluttered data you need without obstructing your vision, with the rest displayed on the computer screen.

After using the Vision a few times, today I decided to return it. There are two issues I have, one of which is vital as it relates to safety.
1) The vision fits best on straight-armed glasses, as the mounting unit is of a flat surface. This brings about challenges with positioning when used for curved glasses, such as my sports sunglass.
2) As most critically, the Vision does create a blind spot which I would warn against ignoring. This issue was underscored during the few times I needed to check over my right shoulder for rear approaching traffic. In each case, it was impossible for me to confidently determine if it were safe to proceed; therefore, I had to make adjustments to my path in order to better position myself when attenpting to assess the situation.
While I truly enjoyed having the information I wanted with a mere glance, it is impossible for me to discount the liabilities that surface as a result of wearing this device, particularly when on the road or having to cross intersections/traffic during a change of direction.
Due to the safely issue, I am also reducing my initial rating from 4-stars to 3-stars. I hope this helps as you try to decide if this is the right produxt for you.
Received my Vision today as was a bit excited to take it out for its first ride. However, before you can satisfy your inner child on Christmas morning, you must first upgrade the software. Fortunately, this is a relatively straightforward process, unlike the Varia UT800 Headlight.
After upgrading the software and pairing it to your head unit, in my case the Edge 1000, you will be introduced to the second challenge - mounting and positionig on your eyewear. This is completely a trial and error process which could lead to frustration and/or thoughts of return/refund. Stay the course, your efforts will be rewarded, especially if you cherish the added safety of not having to take your eyes off the road ahead.
Once properly positioned, the Vision is a joy. Very clear display of your selected output. I didn't notice the weight, even after an hour ride. And oddly, it does not obstruct your view - well let me clean that up. I had perfect view ahead even with the display seemingly covering my right eye; however, I was turned to look over my left shoulder for which it did obstruct my view. Aside from that, no issues.
Though a rather costly toy, I would recommend purchasing this product if you cherish the added conveneince and safety of not always having to look down to view your stats and therefore take your eyes off what's ahead.
Again, the Achille's Heal of this device is the plastic mount loosing its shape. A $15 replacement cost is just insane.
With the Varia Vision Display I don't even peek down anymore. All the data I want is viewable in the lower part of my vision. I was particularly astonished at how quickly I adjusted to the display, and it didn't obstruct my view. Yes, you do have to "look" or focus on the screen to view the data, but that is a simple move of the eyeball, not a duck of the head to see your computer. I found it helped me keep my eyes forward -- all of the time -- with is especially important, cruising down the street at 30 mph on my e-bike. The screen is crisp, and I was even able to view the smaller text for temperature and time. I wasn't sure that I'd like this product at all, but, wow, it is really functional. I won't commute without it.
The apparent focal length is long enough that I do not have to wear corrective reading lenses in my sunglasses in order to clearly see the presentation. To change pages it's a simple swipe along the top of the device. I no longer have to look down to see my bike computer and can keep an eye on the upcoming road or traffic approaching from behind (when synch'd with the Varia Radar).
On the down side it disconnects from my 735 upon occasion. Annoying during a race.
If you are a data freak, like me, this gives you up to 4 additional data points without switching screens. It also gives you four data points that are always visible, no matter what direction you have to turn your head. The little screen remains easily visible once you adjust it properly.
The only real problem I have, aside from the price tag, is that the weight is still just a little too much. It takes me about 30 minutes before I stop being aware of the weight.
The battery life is very good. I routinely ride for 2-3 hours and usually get 3 rides out of it before I'm even thinking about charging the battery.
