Live tracking for BT700 with the SPOKZ app

Mr. SPOKZ
Hello, cycling addicts!

If you have friends or family who would like to follow your BT700 adventure in real time, you can use the SPOKZ app for iOS and Android. It's a free download via http://spokz.bike/get.

SPOKZ lets you know when and where your friends are riding, making it a breeze to meet up for rides, and allowing loved ones to keep an eye on you while you're out on the bike.

For the BT700, we've created a public event. Go to http://spokz.bike/bt700 on your phone and you can join the event and share your ride on the public event feed. SPOKZ provides in-app messaging and High-5's so you can interact with other riders who join the public event. If you don't want to join the public event you can always add friends/family on SPOKZ so they can follow your BT700 or any training ride.

To share your ride in real time, just hit the Start button and when you're finished for the day, hit Stop/End.

Battery & Data

Depending on the age and battery capacity of your phone, you should get anywhere from 5 - 8 hours of battery life while running SPOKZ; what you'd expect from other tracking apps such as Strava. Many people run both SPOKZ and Strava at the same time. SPOKZ updates your location and stats every 20 seconds, and data use should be around 5 MB per hour.

If you have any questions about SPOKZ, please send an email to info@spokzcycling.com. Good luck to everyone riding!
