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.

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.
