Imagine if you could measure your power output where it matters—at the pedal.

Well, Garmin’s new Vector Power Meter lets you do just that. The new cycling power meter measures wattage at the pedal, and it syncs with other compatible Garmin devices.

Even cooler? The Vector can calculate power for both legs individually or average the watts for a single reading. It also measures cadence and other metrics, including your “Intensity Factor” and calories burned. Want to know more? Check out our full review

At $1,700, it’s definitely a splurge item. But what’s a couple grand for the sake of getting faster, right?
