I recently bought a Pint to use as my mode of transportation and fun machine. However as im starting to use it more and more im becoming concerned with security.
Let me put it this way: I’m riding around the city, with a head turning, $1k device under my feet. Other OWs are even more expensive up to 2k. So what keeps a thief from stealing this whenever they get the chance? Or simply robbing it from me? OW! As much as you want to advertise it as a fun device, you’ve designed an expensive vehicle with absolutely no security features! At least bikes can be looped and locked with a chain.
Yes you can design a physical onewheel lock and sell it to us, BUT, why not work with what you have now?
We need a couple of solid security features:
Bluetooth pairing with a user defined passcode:
The board should require a pin on the app so that when I’m not physically near my board, it is locked and practically a brick.
Internal USB/power outlet
To supply power to third party GPS devices installed within the frame of the board. Ive been looking into installing an actual gps device inside the board, but don't want to unscrew the board every two weeks just to charge the device.
Lastly, what if my onewheel is stolen today?
Can you guys find it the moment it is turned on and connected? Would you be able to provide any information to us? This area really needs to be worked on as i read more and more about stolen OWs or children playing with their parent’s OW when they’re not home. Or people asking to “test ride” and never come back. Please take this seriously and discuss.
a onewheel lover.
