Although I'll be reluctant to give up my trusty lock-and-key to keep my bike safely in place when away from it, Bitlock promises a series of interesting additions not available on a traditional bike lock: aside from being able to unlock your bike when you're close to it, you can share its location and give access to it to friends and family.

Lock and unlock your bike seamlessly at press of a button without having to reach your pocket! Bitlock senses your proximity and identifies you as you come within 3 feet of your bike. No more lost key, no more searches for your key, it's officially over.
