Look forward, not behind!
Rear light, radar and dash cam in one: With the GARMIN Varia™ RCT716 you can fully concentrate on the road and your training, because the smart radar rear light with integrated dash cam watches your back in traffic.

Connect the GARMIN radar with compatible smartphones, Edge computers or GARMIN wearables and receive graphic, acoustic or vibration alerts about approaching vehicles. The GARMIN Varia bike radar acts like your digital rear-view mirror, registering several vehicles simultaneously and transmitting the data in real time to your device. With the intuitive graphical display, you have an eye on the traffic behind you even on curves, can assess their speed of approach and adjust your behaviour accordingly. The slim graphic is integrated into GARMIN devices on the side of the display and for smartphones it is compatible with the free Varia app as well as many third-party apps. So you always have the traffic on your radar and don’t need to give up training or navigation features.

The StVZO conform, integrated rear light provides additional safety. With its high visibility, it is just as convincing as a daytime running light as it is at night. The newly designed mount of the Varia RCT716 allows a secure and tool-free attachment to round as well as aero or D-shape seat posts. The beam angle of the rear light offers good visibility from the side, a definitive advantage at crossroads.

However, in case of an emergency, you can rely on the integrated dash cam of the GARMIN RCT716. It continuously records what is happening behind you and provides the corresponding footage in the event of an accident. By means of accelerometers, falls are automatically detected and video sequences before, during and after the event are saved. What’s more, the Garmin Varia app for smartphones provides a live video to align the camera. Saved recordings can be easily transferred and played back after the ride. See and be seen – with the GARMIN Varia RCT716, both have a whole new meaning!

Stay safe on the road with the GARMIN Varia™ RCT 716:

• SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING BEHIND YOU: The Varia RTL516 radar provides visual and acoustic alarms warning you of vehicles that are approaching from behind at a distance of up to 140 metres. So you know what is happening behind you during the ride.
• VIDEO RECORDING IN THE EVENT OF AN ACCIDENT: The integrated dash cam records everything behind you and automatically saves the footage before, during and after detected crashes. To align the camera, you can view a live video on your connected smartphone.
• EXCELLENT VISIBILITY FROM AFAR: Thanks to the rear light’s high daylight visibility, drivers will notice you as early as possible. So you’re safer while on the road.
• EDGE/SMARTPHONE COMPATIBLE: The smart and compact radar can be paired with your Edge bike computer or a compatible smartphone as well as certain Garmin wearables or the optional radar display - even synchronized as required.
• FULL CONTROL VIA THE VARIA APP: With the Smartphone app you can now get warnings right away on your phone. Graphics, as well as audio and vibration alerts indicate the position and speed of approaching cars. You can also use the app to control and align the camera or transfer stored videos to your smartphone.
• COMPATIBLE WITH THIRD PARTY APPS: When used with a compatible smartphone, the Varia radar integrates with your favourite apps such as Ride with GPS to add a layer over the map showing radar alerts.
• COMPACT AND ELEGANT DESIGN: You can easily mount the elegant, compact radar on round, aero or D-shape seat posts. The vertical design prevents unwanted leg contact. During stops, it can be removed from the holder with a flick of the wrist.
• MODES FOR MORE BATTERY LIFE: Choose between three recording options to save power or get full performance: camera always on, only light and radar functions or radar-active mode, which activates the camera as soon as a vehicle is detected.
• MEMORY CARD FOR HIGH VIDEO QUALITY: With the 16 GB SDTM memory card included, you can start right away. Record high quality videos with 1080p and 30 fps or reduce the quality to battery-saving 720p on longer rides.

The device merely shows vehicles that are going faster than you. The radar is therefore not suited to keeping an eye on those following you in a race.

This device can improve situational awareness. It should not replace the cyclist’s alertness and judgment of situations. Always be aware of your surroundings and follow the rules for safe riding.

Varia RCT716 Radar Rear Light with Dash Cam

Ich bin ein älteres Semester (Renn-rad) und kann mich nicht mehr so gut umdrehen, um zu sehen, was hinter mir passiert. Habe deshalb einen kleinen, dezenten Spiegel an meinem linken Lenkerrohr. Nachdem ich aber von dieser Innovation gehört habe, war ich absolut begeistert. Und ich wurde nicht enttäuscht. Trotz des hohen Preises, von dem sich Technikfreaks ohnehin nicht abschrecken lassen, ein echter Gewinn an Sicherheit. Der einzige Nachteil: man benötigt eine kleinere Satteltasche.
