If you’re a bicyclist, you know how nervous you can get when riding on the side of the road with cars zooming past you, seemingly going 90 mph. Now, there’s a way to be alerted when cars are approaching you from the rear while cycling: the Garmin Varia Rearview Radar.

Garmin’s Varia Rearview Radar is the world’s first cycling radar that warns of vehicles approaching riders from behind from up to 153 yards away. It doesn’t require a smartphone to be used, and it can be integrated with compatible Edge cycling computers. The Varia has a red blinking light when cars approach, notifying them that you’re ahead of them. The Varia is a smarter way to reduce the risk of being seriously injured by an approaching vehicle. The Varia will run you $199.99. [Purchase]
