When going for extended bike rides, I often outfit my two-wheeler with iOttie’s smartphone mount to track my progress and in some cases, find my way home. But I am also in constant fear that my device could take a spill if the terrain gets a little out of hand. SmartHalo is a new bike accessory that delivers many of those same smartphone features in a handlebar add-on. That includes an integrated display, navigation and fitness monitoring all in a tidy package.

Of course, it is iPhone and Android compatible, so you can leverage those features without feeling like your device is exposed. SmartHalo’s add-on design promises to bring just about any bike in the modern age, and thankfully the price is rather affordable.
