Smartphone, Smartwatch… Smart Pedal?

CES has given us yet another ‘smart’ device. Earlier today everyone was talking about a smart belt, but now it’s all about the smart pedal. Yes, you heard me correctly, a smart pedal, for your bicycle.

The Connected Cycle pedal acts as a tracking device for your bike. That can mean tracking of the bike itself and of course fitness tracking. The pedal can be used to track down your bike if it’s stolen for example and it can also be used for things like tracking distances and producing fitness data via its companion iOS app.

On the security side of things, a push notification can be sent to your phone if your bike is moved from its last location and it can track it from there. For fitness, the pedal records things like speed, incline and distance and can produce useful data like calories burnt thanks to your cycling.

The pedal doesn’t require charging thankfully, as it apparently produces its own energy from the movement it’s subjected to. It also helpfully comes with a second identical dummy pedal, that can match your ‘smart’ one, so you don’t have odd pedals on your bike. The pedals will come in black, red, green, blue, and orange.

Pricing and a release date has not yet been revealed.
