Updates available for Kiox, the app and the portal

Kiox, our display for sporty riders, is now part of the connected eBike world at Bosch. From now on, Kiox can be selected in the eBike Connect smartphone app under "My eBike". Once Kiox is connected to the app using Bluetooth technology, it will record your trips and send all the relevant data to the app. If your smartphone is connected to the Internet, the ride data is also send to the eBike Connect online portal. The app records the relevant GPS data. This information is then combined with the Kiox riding data - and displayed clearly in the app or in the online portal after the journey.


A redesigned info box in the app and the portal contains information on the kilometres you have travelled, your calorie consumption, your average speed and the altitude reached, always in comparison with the previous month's values. After you have logged into the eBike Connect portal, you will be asked to select your country and preferred language for viewing our website. All e-mail notifications will then be displayed in the selected language. You can change these setting  under "My Profile" at any time.
