The Schwinn CycleNav is a new bluetooth enabled bicycle light that links with their CycleNav App to direct you along your chosen route via voice and light cues.
Perhaps just as exciting is the route planning feature within the app itself. Pick your start and finish points, then add any waypoints you’d like. That’s something we haven’t seen before, and it’ll even show your estimated ride time and elevation profile for each suggested route, helping you find the way that suits your needs, whether that’s training or commuting. Once started, it records your total ride distance, time, calories burned, then you can share your ride with your virtual friends.
The CycleNav unit uses three lights -pointing forward, right and left- and a speaker to speak and illuminate the path. Miss the cue? Just hit the silver button in the middle and it’ll repeat the last direction.
There are quite a few nice features, all summed up in the video below…
As the video suggests, the quick release mount makes it easy to throw on a rental or borrowed bike when traveling to new cities. The app is available now for free for iOS and Android. The CycleNav light will hit WalMart stores this spring for just $59.99.
