Once they unlock bluetooth I'm sure they'll make an app for it which will be awesome (digital rear view mirror!).

Other apps included something that ties in with heart rate monitors, and a basic stop watch.

I forgot to mention, another big plus is always knowing the time.


I completely agree with you, concept is great, it just needs a better implementation. I'd pay 600 for a second gen version if it had a projected HuD (even if it was just text and simple graphics) and 8-12 hour battery.
second gen is out with 6 hours of battery life

C4mtb i could see that being almost 40 at sum parts. at least with my gopro vids. all the trails look so flat and not steep when they are really insanely steep, so that might be why that vid looks like a blue. dam distortion

edit: i take that back maybe 35. distortion still holds true but the angle of the trees never lie.

From the look of the angles on the trees it looks like the steepest would be 35 degree.... HUD is hard to tell though...

That would be a mild blue run here from the perspective.

Still looks like a fun cruiser run

bseracka Crazy they would call that a black, all I saw was a perfectly groomed run that would be an easy blue here. Typically here in the states in order to be a black the run is ungroomed minimum and carries the risk of extended falls
