Bike thieves suck.
We all know someone who has had the horrifying experience of discovering that the bike they locked up in the morning is no longer there in the afternoon.
And there’s not too much you can do about it, really. Even the best locks can be picked, unfortunately, so short of lugging it inside your home every evening, what can you do?
Well, there’s a new way to protect your bicycle, and it’s smartphone-operated. Bitlock is a lock, yes, but it is literally everything else, too. The lock is keyless, it pins your location so you never forget where you’ve left it and it knows who the owner is. It also has a five-year battery life, it uses the same encryption as online banking systems, you can lock and unlock it from an app (or simply by touching it, because, like we said, it knows who the owner is) AND it tracks your performance (like a Nike fuelband).
So, you see, it’s not only a lock, it’s a cure for the forgetful, it’s a piece of wearable technology that you don’t have to wear around your wrist, and it’s a way to thwart those dastardly bike thieves.
It’s basically magic.
