The SmartHalo 2 launched on Kickstarter, and within an hour the project was fully funded. It’s a bike computer that acts as a navigation system, anti-theft alarm and fitness tracker — and notifies you when your mom is calling. As you might guess, it’s the second generation of the product, following the SmartHalo launch back in 2015 (also a successful Kickstarter project), and it works with all types of bikes. To attach the 1.5-inch OLED screen, add a quarter lock mount to your handlebars, and screw the SmartHalo 2 into place. It will only come off your bike with a special HaloKey, meaning you don’t have to worry about bike thieves walking off with it.
As someone who routinely pulls off the road to check my next turn, this device could be life-changing. It’s guaranteed to make every cyclist’s life easier and safer. As of writing, the SmartHalo 2 is already fully funded (four times over), but you can still back the project through the end of June.
