Many folks ride their bike to burn calories and stay fit. Some rely on simple or sophisticated bike computers and activity monitors to track their performance. Your iPhone is more than capable of replacing those, especially if you pair it with a RFLKT by Wahoo Fitness. The device is claimed to be the world’s first iPhone-powered bike computer. It gives you the power of your phone without you having to put it in danger.
In order to use your iPhone as your bike computer, you are going to have to pick up a decent bike mount and tough case for it. With the Wahoo RFLKT, you can keep your iPhone safely tucked in your pocket and access all of your app data conveniently. The device receives data and images from your phone. You can control apps with this too. It weighs only 2 ounces and has a long battery life. The Wahoo RFLKT has Bluetooth 4.0 technology and is weather and shock proof. You will need an iPhone 4S or iPhone 5 to get started with this.
Speaking of cool iPhone accessories, the Pebble happens to be a decent watch that pairs with iPhones to pull notifications. It is already capable of pulling email and calendar information. To get a wider range of notifications, you could always rely on the BTNotificationEnabler tool by Conrad Kramer. You are going to have to jailbreak your phone and download this from Cydia to get started. The BTNotificationEnabler brings all Notification Center items to your smart watch. Those who don’t want to jailbreak their phone could always wait for Apple to release its own iWatch but who knows when that will happen.
