Forget a rental car or a taxi: The best way to explore a city is often on two wheels. At the close of 2017, more than 60 U.S. municipalities are offering bike-share programs where at little or no cost, you can grab a bike and then return it when finished at any rack or station in the operating area. But how to know where you are going in a new city? SmartHalo is a sensor-like GPS device that attaches to any type of bike handlebar and pairs by Bluetooth with the SmartHalo app. While cycling, the phone stays in the pocket or the purse, and you get the fastest routes, answer calls and track fitness data.  
 

3.  CEP Compression Gear
