SmartHalo 2’s many features are grouped into 5 main categories:
Get to your destination using simple turn signals.
Navigating is simple: using your smartphone, first define a destination, either by searching or by tapping on the map.
Then, select your favourite route type between Fastest, Flattest, Safest or our Recommended path. Then tap on Go!
At this point, you can tuck your phone away and start riding. SmartHalo 2 will indicate each turn you need to take to get to your destination via it’s minimalistic Halo, no matter on which carousel card you are. With SmartHalo 2, you also get the Street name, in case you need the extra information. Should you want more information on your path, swipe to the Navigation Card of the carousel, where you’ll always get information on your next step.
Missed a turn? No worries, SmartHalo 2 reroutes automatically.

Put an end to bike theft with SmartHalo 2’s alarm.
Since SmartHalo 2 stays put on your bike at all times thanks to its Anti-Theft Mount, it doubles as a bike alarm system. As soon as you leave your bike, SmartHalo arms the alarm. If any thief tampers with your bike for too long, a 100dB alarm will go off. Unlike car alarms, SmartHalo 2’s alarm won’t go off indefinitely. It’ll turn off if it senses your bike is safe again.
When you return to your bike, SmartHalo 2 senses your presence (via your smartphone’s SmartHalo app and Bluetooth signal) and disarms the alarm.
No more batteries in your smartphone? No worries, you can define your unique Tapcode in the app. Simply tap this sequence on your SmartHalo 2’s touch surface to disable the alarm.
Here are a few other things you can read about the Alarm:
- Setting the Alarm on SmartHalo 2
