Stay safer on the road with the Garmin's Varia RTL515. Unlike most taillights, the Varia has two main functions: a car sensing radar, and a safety tail light. The radar syncs with Bluetooth or ANT+ enabled Garmin devices and provides a visual and audible alert when a car is approaching. The taillight has up to one mile of daylight visibility and can be seen from 220-degrees, allowing drivers to see you well before the radar senses them. In its brightest mode (Day Flash) it produces 65 lumens and lasts up to 15 hours. With an improved mounting system, vertical design, and longer battery life, this light knocks its predecessor out of the water. With the Garmin Varia, see and be seen.

This 3rd generation Varia adds Bluetooth connectivity, longer battery life, a new Varia mobile app & 3rd party app compatibility.

Fantastic, MUST HAVE bike accessory.
Bought it a week ago. It warns me before the cars are in my sight.
I would not ride without it.
Thank you.

The device is a life saver anyone who rides on roads need to own one of these devices. I can't believe that Garmin are the only manufacturer that makes a product like this. I own all Gramin device for my bike so not a problem for me and I think most advanced bike computers will support this device. Also if you ride at night this device has a great taillight. You would not ride on public roads with out a helmet, why would you not ride with this device, its like have multiple eyes in the back of your head. If you ride with earbuds in your ear, the audible tone can still be heard with out any issues. I would recommend this product for anyone who asks, you can not put a price on your own life.

This is a life saving device. I don't know how I did without one. I have already bought one for my eldest son.

Absolutely love this! As a fairly new rider it has really helped boost my confidence when riding on the open roads in my area. Doesn’t take the place of a quick over the shoulder glance but it really helps!!
