If you’re the type of urban explorer that likes to seek out new corners of their city in order to discover new bike routes or pleasant trails, having turn-by-turn navigation at the ready is nearly indispensable. That being said, the act of taking out and consulting your phone’s GPS while riding a bike is inherently reckless and could lead to an unnecessary accident and possible injury. Next time you’re on that bike, you should put away that smartphone and take our your Haiku instead!
Designed to mount to the handlebars of your bike via a magnetic dock, the Haiku is part navigator, part cycling computer, and part communications device. This minuscule-yet-feature-rich gadget connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth, and then uses your mobile phone to provide you with rich notifications, messages, phone calls, and – you guessed it – turn-by-turn navigation, all of which are displayed on its easy-to-read screen.
Haiku is set to ship in March of 2017 and will make its debut at the CES 2017. Retail pricing will start at $100.
