New App Release: Bike Horn, Clock & Quick Touch

What time is it? It’s time for new SmartHalo features! This one’s good, we’ve got a bunch comin’ your way.

Speaking of time…

We just made it way easier to stay on schedule with a new “Clock” feature. Stop being late with the help of a clock you can display with a short tap on your SmartHalo. Gone are the days of pulling out your phone constantly to check the time.

Beep beep – Watch out! The Horn is finally here.

Yes, you heard that right. You now have a built in horn right at your fingertips. Simply long tap once on your SmartHalo to honk your way to a safer cycling experience.

But that’s not all… Introducing Quick Touch.

Trigger actions (that could previously only be done through the app) directly through SmartHalo’s touch screen surface with Quick Touch. Want to navigate home? 3 short taps on SmartHalo and you’re good to go! Want to switch from Turn-by-turn to Compass navigation? Easy: 3 long taps. The brand new clock and horn features are also triggered with their own sequence.

The best part? You can customize which tap combinations trigger each action. View and customize them within the Assistant tab.

To make sure these features are easy to use, we’ve also improved touch feedback: you’ll now hear a subtle sound when you tap and you’ll be able to view the touch sequence you’ve just input, even when connected.

How do I get these sweet new features?

Easy, just follow these 2 steps:

  1. Make sure you download the latest version of the app in the App or Google Play store (some phones will update apps automatically).
  2. Once that’s done, install the latest version of the firmware. You’ll need to be connected to SmartHalo to do it. Just tap on the top right icon (you’ll see a red notification dot appear on your SmartHalo icon) and tap on “New firmware update”. The update takes 5 minutes max!

We hope you enjoy these new features and improvements. Big thanks to everyone who has provided feedback: SmartHalo keeps getting better and better thanks to you. Stay tuned for more updates!
