Train year-round with updated bike speed and cadence sensors from Garmin®

April 24, 2019 7:02 AM EDT

Garmin International, Inc., today announced its new bike Speed Sensor 2 and Cadence Sensor 2 wireless sensors that encourage cyclists to train year-round by monitoring their speed, distance and pedaling cadence while on a ride. Even further, these new sensors are equipped with ANT+® and BLE that allow cyclists to easily sync to Garmin Connect™ and other training apps as well as compatible fitness devices and equipment, providing better insights whether riding indoors or outdoors.

The Speed Sensor 2 attaches to the hub of either wheel and self-calibrates when paired with a Garmin Edge® device to provide accurate speed and distance data. If a cyclist does not have a head unit, the Speed Sensor 2 will still capture that data and upload it to Garmin Connect mobile. The Cadence Sensor 2 fastens to any crank arm and will measure pedal strokes per minute to help a cyclist get the most out of their training.

Featuring up to 1 year of battery life1, both the Speed Sensor 2 and Cadence Sensor 2 are easy to install, maintain and move between bikes. The Speed Sensor 2 and Cadence Sensor 2 are available now. Each sensor has a suggested retail price of $39.99. A bundle option, which includes both sensors, is available with a suggested retail price of $69.99.

The Speed Sensor 2 and Cadence Sensor 2 are the latest innovations from the ever-expanding Garmin fitness segment that develops technologies to enhance and promote healthy and active lifestyles. Whether users are runners, cyclists, swimmers, multi-sport athletes, or simply looking to stay active throughout the day, there is a product that can help them reach their health and fitness goals.
