Do you know the story that any product has an “intelligent” version today? The Smart Connect reel is part of TackObox’s new brand of fishing accessories. It can communicate via Bluetooth with the fisherman’s phone through an application available for Android and IOS.
The reel detects when a fish bites the bait and sends a sound notification to the owner. The reel is also able to monitor the weather, its “success rate” and the most famous local points for the hobby. This quirky gadget costs $ 119, about $ 460, and is available on the brand’s official website.
Since it works through bluetooth, the reel has a battery that must be recharged every 40 hours to continue the communication with the cell phone. The application, which is free, monitors up to four reels simultaneously. So the initiative is for those who use several fishing rods at the same time or prefer to talk and do something else while they wait for a hook. After all, when it comes to fishing, there is nothing better than not fishing.
Now, Smart Connect plans to develop a fishing line with customizable LEDs – it will be possible to change the color through the application.
