What is BikeBrain?

BioLogic BikeBrain – GPS bike and cycle computer

BikeBrain is an App that transforms an iPhone into an easy-to-use cycle computer that does not need external cables or sensors. After downloading the App, the following data that previously required a multitude of sensors is avaialble.

  • GPS mapping
  • Speed
  • Distance
  • Altitude
  • Elapsed time
  • Calories burnt

As this data is held on the iPhone, the data can be reviewed easily on the phone itself or transferred via email or through social media using Wifi or a phone network. The email copy of the data is in industry standard formats (GPX and KML) so can be stored on any computer, analyzed by various software packages or uploaded to other ride sharing sites online. Exporting data from the App requires an in App upgrade.
