Sherlock GPS bike tracker
Preventing bicycle from being stolen has always been an enduring challenge for cyclists, GPS bike tracking devices are increasing in number, though none have yet nailed the concept well enough to go truly mainstream.
Sherlock is one of the latest to produce an anti-theft tracker for bicycles and will be going on sale for the first time this summer.
These bike trackers fit into the bike; the seatpost, frame or handlebars. Using Bluetooth technology and push notifications, the user’s smartphone is notified when the bike moves.
Prices are expected to be in the region of £100, including a two year internet connection, though they are considering a lower priced alternative with a shorter lived internet connection.
Battery life is optimised to communicate only when moving. Using GPS and GPRS Sherlock will provide a location up to five metres.
