Using GPS from your smartphone and reading maps on its small screen while riding your bike is not always the safest way to navigate around busy cities.

But now a new device called SmartHalo has been created by CycleLabs to provide safe city navigation allowing you to concentrate on the more important tasks at hand, such as the road ahead.

SmartHalo is a smart biking device designed for urban cyclists And provides an intuitive navigation system that guides you to your destination safely. Watch the video below to learn more about this handy device that uses a military grade blocking system to make sure it stays on your bikes handlebars.

SmartHalo finds the quickest, safest routes to make your ride a stress-free experience. Input the destination on your smartphone, tuck it safely in your pocket and let SmartHalo take care of the rest. Get turn-by-turn navigation straight on your handlebars…a bike GPS communicated through an intuitive light halo. Alleluia.

Automatic tracking capabilities save your biking metrics seamlessly. The powerful front light illuminates your path at night. And when you’re not around, SmartHalo keeps your bike safe from thieves. This is the smart biking system you’ve been waiting for. Unlike regular fitness apps, there is no need to press “start” or “stop” – SmartHalo tracks your progress as soon as you start pedalling. Get extensive metrics and visualize the data in the app.

The SmartHalo project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website and has already raised the required funds to go into production in just the first few days after launch.

So if you think SmartHalo is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge from $105.
