If you’re an avid bike rider, there is no doubt that you’ve wondered how to bring smartphone integration into your daily commute or exercise routine. There are plenty of iPhone or Android bike mounts, like this one from iOttie, that will suffice but still require riders to focus in on a display that may be difficult to read while riding.

SmartHalo is a new project on Kickstarter that attaches a simple round display onto the handlebars of a bike. It connects with your smartphone via Bluetooth so directions can be transmitted from the iOS or Android app. From there, SmartHalo provides turn-by-turn navigation, amongst other data, until you’ve arrived at the destination.

Golf sensors are by no means a new addition to the world of sporting goods. We’ve seen other models that offer smartphone connected tracking in a variety of ways. Today, a new option is entering the fray that attempts to paint a clear picture of your game.

The PIQ golf sensor blends Bluetooth, GPS, motion sensors and NFC together with the idea of providing more data than has been offered before. It’s an improved design in comparison to the competition with 18 tags that use NFC to identify individual clubs when you take them out of the bag. But it’s all of the data that it collects that really makes PIQ a stand out.  expand full story
