    « Get Two Devices Every Biker Needs - In One Clever Device. | Main | Not Only Is This Bike Air Pump Small & Powerful, It Has Bluetooth! »

    SmartHalo, a new bike gadget that guides your way, all with LED's.

    Smarthalo is a different way for cyclists to navigate using a minimalist circular interface that connects with a smartphone via Bluetooth. Using just color LED's, it shows the quickest and (hopefully) safest paths to your destination. It also lights the way at night and keeps the bike safe against thieves with an integrated alarm system. The accessory kit lets you install the device on most any regular bike’s handlebars. It connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth, and acts as a visually simplistic navigation guide. Insert your destination into the SmartHalo's corresponding app and it will provide you with turn-by-turn directions using light signals. It's weather-resistant and a sensor will turn on the two forward facing bright white LED's when the device detects darkness. You can also use the app to track your bike's location in case you forget where you left it. SmartHalo attaches to the handlebars with tamper-proof screws that only the owner can detach with a custom key fob. There's a motion sensor alarm that is deactivated when you approach your bike and the SmartHalo detects your phone. But wait, there's more! It also functions as a fitness tool. Set your personal goals and the SmartHalo will display your progress. There is a bit of a learning curve with all the functions and light colors, but the company feels this a lot safer than trying to follow a route staring at your phone while underway. $149.00.
