Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. FiTech Sports Technology is out with the SH50 bike helmet….designed for safety and smarts. It connects to your smart phone to add communications, entertainment and safety features…like smart rear lights. And for music and communications, it uses bone conduction. Chief Marketing Officer Ari Morguelan says that is important for safety…
“It conducts the vibration of the speaker directly to your bone and into your ear canal. So there is no obstruction with wind and noise, it’s a direct path from the speaker and into your ear. And then your ear canal is also open to receive sounds from the outside.”
And the 318 Sports app lets you use the helmet as a walkie talkie or to summon help automatically if it senses a fall or collision. Find more at www.fitechsports.com.
