From a physical standpoint they got rid of the dangling pods off the side of the unit; everything is now internal.
They also went away from a 3rd party manufactured pedal, and built the whole thing from the ground up in-house.
From a technology standpoint, they increased accuracy claims to /- 1% while also adding in Bluetooth Smart transmission (*soon), and settings configuration with your mobile phone.
The real question is – when it came to real-world usage out on the road, how would it fare? Four months of it in fact, well before Vector 3 even was announced.
Unlike past Garmin Vector pedals, there is no requirement to use a torque wrench, nor are any specific torque specifications required.
It’s just that one of those pedals won’t have any sensors/electronics in it.
The left pedal will have sensors, and the right pedal will be a blank.
Much of this, of course, is the result of changing everything else within the pedal, like the bearings.– Increased rider weight: The certified weight is 105KG (231 lbs) for rider weight, previously it was 90KG (198 lbs).
That may not sound like a lot, but that’s actually a fair bit different.– Update pedals via phone or Edge: Previously you had to use the desktop or Edge device to update your firmware.
