Canyon Smart Bike Computer Puts Android Wear on Your Handle Bars

By James O Malley on at

Canyon has unveiled a new bike computer built in collaboration with Sony - which in what we think is a first, runs Google's Android Wear operating system.

Sporting a 1.6-inch touchscreen, 4GB of storage, bluetooth and GPS, it is essentially an Android Wear watch mounted to your bike - which means you can use it in conjunction with any app that makes use of Wear. So whether you're navigating with Google Maps, or tracking your ride with Strava, you can have the details in front of you, alongside any incoming notifications.

BikeRadar reports that the device will run for 8-10 hours without charging (you can remove it from the bike and charge with Micro USB), and it will be available in three versions for different types of bike: urban, mountain bike and a fully integrated "aero road cockpit".

It will be available from next Spring, for around €200 - which works out at about £150. [BikeRadar via Digital Spy]
