Devices track and collect performance data

Garmin has brought out two new tracking devices aimed at cyclists. The Edge 200 Cycling GPS tracks basic information including tracks time, distance, speed, location and calories burned. The Vector captures more sophisticated information about the cyclist's performance in real time.

The Edge 200 snaps onto a holder mounted on the handlebar. It incorporates a 1.2-inch by 1.4-inch 128x160 pixel display. The information captured can be uploaded via a USB cable to a computer after a ride where it is mapped and shared. The Edge stores up to 130 hours of information.

The Vector requires that the biker replace their normal pedals with a special pair that house a special sensor. That sensor monitors advanced power data including cadence, force exerted by each pedal stroke, The information is then transmitted wirelessly to either a handle bar mounted monitor such as an Edge 800, or to an ANT+ enabled head unit

The Edge 200 is priced at $150. It will be available during the third-quarter of this year. The Vector, carrying a price tag of $1,500, will begin shipping in March 2012.
