CES 2015: Connected Cycle Reveals Smart Bike Pedal with Location and Fitness Tracking Features [iOS Blog]

French startup Connected Cycle has introduced its new smart bike pedal at CES 2015, which is able to track a bike’s exact location in the event of a theft and a number of distance and fitness statistics during biking activity.

The aluminum pedal works with a companion app on iOS to track where a bike is located, and can send a push notification if the bike has been moved or give a location as to where a bike was last parked. The pedal and the app also automatically record metrics like the speed of a bike, the incline of a given location, routing info and even calories burnt. Connected Cycle notes that the pedal generates its own energy and that installation takes less than two minutes without the need for mechanical skills, although removing the pedal requires a specialized key that comes in the box.

The Connected Cycle comes with two pedals, with one pedal containing smart functionality and the other pedal sporting a similar look for aesthetic purposes. Connected Cycle has yet to announce a price or release date for its smart pedal, but does note that it will come in colors including black, red, green, blue, and orange.
