Description of Garmin Vector 3 Plug & Play Pedal-Based Dual-Sensing Power Meter

The Vector 3 is the next evolutionary step in Garmin's pedal-based powermeter lineup. One of the main improvements ist the much more convenient mounting process - just like a conventional pedal. There's no longer the need to install a separate transmission unit. The design has experienced a general overhaul, making the pedal sleeker, sturdier, more stylish and with only 316 grams lighter than its predecessors. Measuring accuracy has been optimized further and is now at ±1%.
Ride stronger, smarter, connected with the Vector 3 pedal-based power meter. As you strive to beat your personal best on your next race or Gran Fondo, power is the most reliable way to gauge your performance on any given day, at any given time. Unlike other power meters, Vector 3 has the sensors housed right in the pedals, so it delivers reliable, accurate data on every training session.

Overview of he most important features of the Garmin Vector 3

  • Installs like any other pedal and quickly transfers between bikes
  • Measures total power, left/right balance, cadence and cycling dynamics
  • Sleek design provides greater cornering clearance and improved stack height
  • Fully integrates with Garmin cycling ecosystem for data analysis
  • Allows for easy updates via compatible Edge® cycling computers, ANT+® connectivity or Bluetooth®-enabled fitness devices¹ and Garmin Connect™ Mobile app
  • Battery life: up to 120 hours

Take It to the Next Level

With the Vector 3 dual-sensing system, you get the valuable ability to see right and left leg power independently. Vector 3 measures total power, cadence and left/right balance as well as advanced cycling dynamics, which helps you tailor your training around your specific weaknesses and strengths to improve your form. It tracks seating/standing position to determine when and how long you were in each. So, you can gauge position effectiveness, power phase to show how you’re currently producing power in a pedal stroke and platform center offset to show where power is applied on the pedal so you can ensure proper cleat position. Each metric can be viewed on compatible Edge® cycling computers and Garmin Connect™ Mobile app.

Easy to Install, Transfer and Use

With Vector 3, there are no complex drivetrain or wheel tradeoffs and no external sensors to install. There are also no pods, so Vector 3 installs like any other pedal — and it’s easy to transfer from 1 bike to another without bike shop assistance. Plus, its sleek design and improved stack height provide greater cornering clearance and smarter ergonomics, and its precision stainless-steel spindle and composite pedal body have been engineered and tested to withstand years of use. It offers battery life up to 120 hours.

Part of Your Connected Bike

Get the most from your training by seamlessly pairing your Vector 3 with compatible Edge cycling computers, ANT+ or Bluetooth-enabled fitness devices — including compatible Forerunner® and fēnix® devices — and Garmin Connect Mobile app. Plus, you can easily update software with any of these devices.

You can also integrate post-ride analysis, data sharing, mapping, route planning and more with Garmin Connect™, Strava and TrainingPeaks. And use ANT+ connectivity to get stronger by pairing Vector 3 with TrainerRoad. With the TrainerRoad app, you'll get personally scaled indoor workouts based on power from Vector 3. The indoor training system also has training plans that tell you exactly what to do to achieve your unique fitness and race goals. It’s structured training in its most sophisticated and guided form. Sign up with TrainerRoad to get faster, and train for your first 30 days risk-free.

Nachdem ich nahezu 6 Monate auf meine Pedale warten musste und zwischenzeitlich von Problemen mit dem Batteriefach gehört hatte bin ich begeistert. Gut, dass ich nicht zu früh bestellt hatte und gut, dass die Kinderkrankheiten nun ausgemerzt sind. Meine aktuelle Version hat keine Probleme mit dem Batteriefach.
Super zuverlässig, Daten ohne Ende.
Einzig die Batterielaufzeit - die gelieferten Batterien waren nach 3000 km durch Frankreich und die Alpen am Ende - ist verbesserungswürdig. Aber wie soll man das hinbekommen - Daten über nahezu alles was am Pedal wo genau geleisetet wird andauernd senden und dann zwei mini Batterien pro Pedal. Irgendwo muss die Energie ja herkommen.
Good things first:
- Light
- Easy to tranfer for bike to bike
- The pedal itself feels stable and good when sprinting
- Lot's of date

Bad things (and You can find many, many more via garmin forums):
- Recurring connectivity problems with Garmin connect App (with one version ok, in the next it doesn't work which unfortunately means that Garmin doesn't check whether their systems work or not). Tricky to update withoit Edge for example
- Batteries (you can use 3 different models) are not easy to find compared to for example CR2030. I live in Helsinki, Finland and I had to go to several stores before finding any of those fitting.
-very expensive and with that You'll get all kinds of nasty little problems. Really, search the web!
Ich bin schon nach einer Woche begeistert von den neuen Vectoren. Hab nun an meinen Tarmac Twins Vector 2 und an dem anderen Vector 3. Batterietausch ist bei den neuen viel einfacher halten dafür wohl nicht so lange (Vector 2 haben bei mir 6000km gehalten) der Trittfrequenzsensor ist integriert (spart noch einen zusätzlichen Sensor). Das kalibrieren ist deutlich einfacher geworden und bei Garmin Connect ist nun unter dem Aufzeichnungsgerät (Bei mir unter dem Edge 1000) das Pedal als weiteres Aufzeichnungsgerät abgebildet. Konnektivität mit Edge und Forerunner genauso leicht wie beim Vorgänger. Liefert wohl noch mehr Daten als der Vector 2, da sind es schon extrem viel.
