The SMART bicycle helmet by LifeBEAM is one of the pioneers of the use of Smart helmets in the cycling or sports industry. The helmet has some really innovative technologies like physiological sensor, wireless communication, and accelerometer. The helmet is capable of sending the data to the users within real time.
The LifeBEAM smart helmet is the first helmet in the world that senses your body while you ride. This revolutionary piece of wearable technology monitors your heart rate, counts your calories, gives you an accurate analysis of your performance, and protects your head.
The Smart helmet by LifeBEAM is meant to measure the fitness data of the cyclists. Those who love cycling and are concerned about their heart rates won’t have to wear the chest straps; the multi-purpose helmet apart from protecting your head also measures your heart rate. The helmet also consists of a 3-axis accelerometer, a processing unit for the data, Bluetooth 4.0 functionality and a rechargeable Lithium battery that lasts a minimum of 15 hours.
There is an electro-optical sensor at the front of the helmet which gathers all the concerned heart rate information and sends it to a connected Android, Windows or an iOS Smartphone, or a fitness watch. If the cyclists are pros, and they have a Smartphone already mounted on their bike then they can keep a check on their heart rate even after every second.
What’s more is that the LifeBEAM smart helmet was initially developed to monitor the vital signs of pilots and astronauts. This means that with the LifeBEAM smart helmet you can monitor your vital signs and performance with aerospace accuracy. The helmet has been tested in various weather conditions and the sensor technology is resistant to inclement weather as well as sweat.
The LifeBEAM smart helmet is available for US$199.00. It can be ordered from here.
