Garmin is launching a brand new rear-view, radar-activated taillight with a built-in camera. The Varia RCT715 attaches to the back of your bike and will record continuously, saving any footage that could be an accident. The Swiss company is best known for its GPS technology, but cyclists around the world have been using Varia radar products for years to stay safe around other vehicles. 

Traveling on two wheels can be dangerous, so if you do it a lot it’s a good idea to invest in one of the best helmet cameras in the unfortunate event that you are involved in a collision. However, if something occurs behind you, a helmet camera facing forward won’t do much good, which is why it’s worth investing in a rear-view camera as well.
