It will soon be easier to navigate your way around the city or suburb with the SmartHalo. Along with its companion mobile application, the SmartHalo is a device that will fit any bicycle’s handlebar without being too flashy.
The SmartHalo helps you navigate around the city with directional lights. Tell SmartHalo’s companion mobile application where you would like to head to, hop on your bicycle and follow the turn-by-turn directional lights to your intended destination. It is like a simplified GPS, without all the maps and having to follow voice instructions that don’t necessarily make sense (‘in 200 meters turn right,’ excuse me but what does 200 meters look like?).
As the SmartHalo works on GPS, it is also able to track metrics like time, distance, average speed, calories burned, elevation and map. It is able to track your progress automatically once you start hitting the pedals – so no more pesky start or stop buttons needed here.
All tracked data can be easily accessed via the companion mobile application in the form of simple to read graphs and reports. In addition to that, you are able to set personal goals based on distance, time or calories and SmartHalo will give you up-to-date progress reports.
For Added Security
It does not only help you navigate around the city, but SmartHalo also has a security feature that keeps your bicycle where you last left it and reminds you of where you parked it. We all know how expensive bicycles can get now a days, and so do the good people who invented the SmartHalo.
The alarm built into the SmartHalo deactivates once it ‘recognizes’ its owner by pairing with your Smartphone. If the internal motion sensor detects any unusual meddling with the bicycle, a loud alarm will be triggered.
If you have accidentally triggered the alarm, you can either key in your unique passcode to deactivate it or pair SmartHalo with your Smartphone.
SmartHalo also has a built-in headlight. The headlight is automatically activated and is 200 lumens bright – definitely be able to see the road no matter how dark your environment is. Best part of it all, it works with both Android and iOS devices.
