Heart Rate Data in Three Disciplines
  • Specifically designed for triathletes
  • Our smallest and lightest heart rate monitor (HRM)
  • Comfortable, easily adjustable strap
  • Stores and forwards heart rate data to Forerunner® 920XT
Enhance your triathlon experience by pairing HRM-Tri with your Forerunner® 920XT. The HRM-Tri stores heart rate data when underwater, then forwards it to the 920XT. Our smallest and lightest module fits within the width of the strap. Its soft, rounded edges and covered seams make the strap super-comfortable out of the water, too.

Running Dynamics
HRM-Tri also has an accelerometer in the module that measures torso movement to calculate 3 running metrics:
  • Cadence — the number of steps per minute. It displays the total steps (right and left combined).
  • Vertical oscillation — the bounce in your running motion. It displays the vertical motion of your torso (measured in centimeters). HRM-Tri is compatible with several other fitness products but will only display heart rate when paired.
  • Ground contact time — the amount of time in each step that your foot spends on the ground while running (measured in milliseconds).

Alerts You to Vehicles Approaching from Behind
  • World's first cycling radar that warns of vehicles approaching from behind up to 153 yards (140 meters)
  • Works independently and wirelessly integrates with compatible Edge® cycling computers¹
  • Edge computer or Varia head unit can detect multiple vehicles and indicates the relative speed of approach and threat level
  • Tail light unit brightens and flashes to notify approaching traffic of a cyclist ahead
The world's first cycling radar, Varia helps create a safer cycling environment by warning cyclists of vehicles approaching from behind up to 153 yards (140 meters). The radar tail light also warns approaching vehicles of a cyclist ahead. Works independently or integrates seamlessly with compatible Edge cycling computers¹. Edge computer or Varia head unit can show multiple approaching vehicles and indicates the relative speed of approach and threat level.

Getting Hit From Behind is Leading Cause of Cycling Fatalities in U.S.²
The threat is real. That’s why getting some extra help knowing what’s sneaking up behind you is an important breakthrough. You already use caution and check over your shoulder, especially before making turns, but Varia radar gives you an important tool by watching behind you even when you aren’t.

Varia Bike Lights are Smarter Than the Typical Bike Light
The Varia line of cycling awareness products also includes Varia smart headlights and tail lights. When paired with select Edge bike computers¹, these bike lights help to create safer riding conditions by adjusting the beam focus point according to a bike’s speed and matching brightness to changing light conditions. As speed increases, the headlight focuses further down the road to project light to where it’s needed most and brings it closer as you slow. As ambient light fades or gets brighter, both the headlight and tail light adjust automatically when paired with a light-sensing Edge 1000 bike computer.

  • G-Metrix: Built-in Garmin GPS and sensors track your movements in real-time and display it all in powerful gauges, graphs and more
  • Photo: 12 megapixels; burst up to 30 frames per second; time lapse
  • Audio: Exposed microphone for extremely clear audio even underwater; wireless HD audio from Bluetooth®-enabled headsets or microphones
  • Waterproof to 50 meters without a dive case
The VIRB XE action camera shoots rich, high-definition, wide-angle footage at 1080p60, 12 megapixel photos at up to 30 frames per second, and captures more of your action. Designed for the toughest environments, VIRB XE is able to dive to 50 meter depths without a case, allowing capture of cleaner and clearer audio. Powered by Garmin GPS, G-Metrix allows you to track and overlay how fast, how far, how high and how intense the moment truly was.

Professional Video Capture
With the ability to shoot stunning high definition video in 1440p30, 1080p60 and 720p120, VIRB XE is ready to capture your experiences in vivid detail. Featuring a custom, all-glass lens, high resolutions, zoom levels and high frame rates up to 240FPS (480p), VIRB XE ensures you get the shots you need. Manual camera controls like white balance and exposure biasing unlock even greater flexibility in your video.

High-quality Photography
With a dedicated photo button and the ability to shoot wide-angle 12 megapixel photos at speeds up to 30 frames per second, VIRB XE is designed to get the image. You can even capture photos while recording video. VIRB XE can also be set to automatically capture photos over long periods of time at customizable intervals up to 120 seconds. With Extended Timelapse, VIRB XE will sleep between shots, allowing you to maximize your battery life for exceptionally long captures.

Capture more than just video of the moment with G-Metrix. VIRB XE contains built-in Garmin GPS, G-force, orientation sensors and the ability to wirelessly connect to external sensors and Garmin devices to capture even more performance data. Play your experience back in higher definition than ever before by using our free mobile or desktop software to automatically overlay gauges, graphs and more, showcasing your speed, acceleration, heart rate (and much more) in real time.

Rugged and Dive Ready
VIRB XE is ready to dive deep (up to 50 meters) without the need for additional equipment or cases. Its tough, compact design is ready to withstand the elements with an exposed microphone that records clean and clear audio that cameras in cases just can’t pick up. Thanks to a hydrophobic, flat, glass lens, underwater shots are crystal clear while transitions in and out of the water stay unobstructed by droplets.

Built-in Wi-Fi®
Connect one or more VIRB XE cameras to the Garmin VIRB® Mobile App on your compatible smartphone¹ or tablet. This gives you the ability to line up your shot with live video preview, control and view multiple cameras, playback and edit recorded footage, overlay G-Metrix data and push your videos to the cloud. VIRB XE can even be controlled, configured and viewed from a compatible Garmin device.

Image Stabilization
VIRB XE contains motion sensors to detect camera movements and helps keep your shot steady. Electronic image stabilization reduces camera shake and blur whether you’re bouncing over harsh terrain or gliding through calm waters.

Bluetooth-enabled HD Audio
Equipped with Bluetooth 4.0, VIRB XE can connect directly to wireless Bluetooth headsets or microphones to capture audio in high definition. Whether you’re further away from your camera, or you’d rather capture your motorcycle commentary, VIRB XE ensures your audio needs are covered.

Remote Control Ecosystem
VIRB XE can leverage the powerful Garmin ecosystem to simplify and extend camera control. Monitor and control your VIRB XE with the optional VIRB remote, smart devices, portable navigation devices, wearables, chartplotters, aviation flight decks and even other VIRB cameras.

Multi-camera Synchronization
Using the power of Garmin GPS, VIRB XE simplifies complicated multi-camera shots by automatically synchronizing footage with sub-frame accuracy using GPS timestamps. Use VIRB Edit to seamlessly switch between multiple camera angles with the click of a button eliminating time-consuming realignment and time codes.

One-touch Recording
VIRB XE was engineered for easy operation with a 1-touch record switch on the top of the camera and a dedicated shutter button for still photos in the same place. The solid click of the switch makes it easy to know that you are recording, even if you’re wearing gloves. The camera begins recording the moment you flip the switch, even if the camera is off.

Keep Going with Rugged Power
VIRB XE features weatherproof power contacts so you can connect to a vehicle battery or other power source to allow for long periods of uninterrupted recording in even the toughest conditions. VIRB XE also features a rechargeable/replaceable lithium-ion battery for maximum flexibility.

VIRB Tracking
VIRB Tracking lets you know the last known position of your camera so you can return and retrieve it. Use the VIRB Tracking function with a compatible Garmin device or compatible smartphone¹.
