Acer Xplova X5 – The Intuitive Cycling Computer with Smart Video Recording Capability

Acer Xplova X5

The new Acer Xplova X5 was unveiled at the World Trade Center in New York as the company is gearing to stand strong in the midst of competition. Here is one intuitive cycling computer that is expected to start a trend in attracting health-conscious people to push their stamina and physical limits while cycling. What’s more, one can record interesting rides with specific triggers and thus do not have to focus on the same.

Acer Xplova X5 is one of the first intuitive cycling computers ever made, as it embeds an action cam into the design to trigger a recording with the ride data. That means that when the heart rate hits a specific level, or the ride takes a descent, the gadget will record three second snippets of video, ready to be stitched together if required and also fit enough for sharing on social channels.

Although the trigger is set to your heart rate and on some interesting curves, one can set the record operation manually too. The Acer Xplova X5 also includes turn-by-turn navigation, and the integral ability to download popular routes as necessary for travel. However, the built-in camera gets in the action as your desired without having to control it.
