Varia Vision is an in-sight display which enhances road awareness when cycling. It provides the cyclist with valuable information, such as performance data and navigation instructions, directly in the line of sight. This lightweight device can be attached flexibly to the temple of sunglasses, and it transfers data directly from a compatible Garmin device. Cyclists can therefore keep their focus on the road whilst looking for the next turn or when they want to keep an eye on cars approaching from behind. The display shows up to four important data fields and colour-coded graphic data. Vibration alarms alert the cyclist when a segment is being approached, a training zone is being left or a call is coming in. The convenient touch panel makes it easy to change between data pages, even with gloves on.
Statement by the Jury
It is a remarkable innovation to be able to see data, concerning the course or current heart rate, in the line of sight using Varia Vision; which is attached to a pair of glasses.
