You may not have an Abus helmet yet, but given their vastly improved styling over the past couple years, this new heads up display from O_Synce might provide the nudge needed for data geeks. It connects to ANT+ and Bluetooth devices to show route navigation, speed, power and other performance data.

Using sunlight to illuminate the display, it barely pulls any power and weighs in at just 20g with the CR2032 coin cell battery installed. With no powered lights needed, it’ll last more than a year.

By using ambient light, it automatically adjusts its brightness to the environment. The display is crisp, but virtually disappears from view when you’re not focusing on it.

At the moment, they only offer it for Abus’ Game Changer, Aventor and Viantor helmets, as well as on a visor for running. For cycling, it mounts on either side of the helmet and can easily swap between models. A separate ANT+ remote can cycle through screens, and setup is performed through their smartphone app. Navigation is also handled by 3rd party apps on the phone.

Does it work at night and does the yellow fluid have to be refilled to use it as an inhaler?

Does it use the ant+ extended display profile or a new proprietary way to connect?
