Bicycle mount case for smartphones including Galaxy S3, iPhone 5
At Phones review we enjoy bring readers details of new accessories as well as smartphones and tablets and today we have a great idea for those who enjoy cycling. The Tunewear TUNEMOUNT Bicycle Mount 2 is a mount case for smartphones including the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Apple iPhone 5 and it would be a great Christmas gift idea for a friend or loved one this holiday season.
This bicycle mount enables the user to easily attach their smartphone to the handlebars and if you’re wondering about the sense of that in inclement weather then we can tell you that it incudes a waterproof zipper case for the phone, the handlebar mount and also a clip to attach and carry the case when you’re not actually cycling.
It’s simple to use, as you just need to pop your smartphone into the zipper case and attach it to the mount. The adjustable-length strap mechanism on the mount fastens securely to the handlebars. You can also find a suitable screen-viewing angle as the mount has a ball joint that rotates horizontally and vertically and is freely adjustable. When you’re not using the bike then just take the case from the mount and the included clip slides on to attach to your belt or pocket, keeping your phone conveniently handy and protected all the while.
One really neat idea with this accessory is that the zipper case has a clear front window allowing for smartphone touchscreen operations for ease of use, especially when using GPS navigation apps or location tracker apps for cyclists. Smartphones with dimensions of 71mm x 137mm x 13mm can fit into the zipper case and just some of those compatible are the Galaxy S3, the Apple iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, Xperia GX SO-04D and Xperia SX SO-05D. The Tunewear TUNEMOUNT Bicycle Mount 2 can be used with bicycles with handlebars between 20 and 38mm in diameter, so that’s most standard bikes and it can also be used with baby strollers.
You can see more of this accessory at this Allputer product page and it comes in black with the current price of $27.95. We think this would make a really good stocking filler or maybe if you’re a keen cyclist you’ll want to indulge yourself.
