Garmin buys MetriGear

Garmin just bought MetriGear, a Silicon Valley company that has created the pedal-based power solution for cycling for improving athletic performance in cycling and other sports.

Their product is the Vector which is a pedal-based power solution that integrates MetriGear’s custom force and motion sensor platform into the spindles of bicycle pedals to measure a cyclist’s performance. It even enables the independent measurement of pedal force for each leg.

It looks like the latest Edge 800 and Vector will be merged into a package soon, communicating using the ANT+ technology to track your speed, power, distance, time, elevation, calories burned and everything else in between.

No pricing or availability date information just yet. Stay tuned.
