Using the Navimow smartphone app, users set the limits of the area to be mowed for the Navimow, including providing it guidance for which areas to avoid. Segway claims that the Navimow’s algorithm “determines a systematic mowing path” that does not have to crisscross previously mowed regions.

The Navimow features offset blades that allow it to cut as near to the lawn’s margins as possible. Its Blade Halt technology detects anything in the grass, such as dogs, toys, or children, and stops the mower’s blades from rotating. While Segway claims the Navimow can “withstand downpour, strong splashing, and high-pressure water jets,” its rain sensor directs it back to its charging station if rain begins to fall.

The Navimow has offset blades that allow it to cut as near to the edge of a lawn as possible. Its Blade Halt technology detects anything in the grass such as dogs, toys, or children and stops the mower’s blades from rotating. While Segway claims the Navimow can “withstand downpour, strong splashing, and high-pressure water jets,” its rain sensor sends it back to its charging station if it senses rain.

The Navimow can tackle grass inclines of up to 45 degrees and operates at a reasonably quiet 54 decibels. Segway offers four Navimow versions, beginning with the H500E, which can be utilised on a lawn up to 500 square metres (about 5400 square feet) in size and costs €1199 (approximately $1,425).

The Navimow H800 costs €1499 (approximately $1,781) and is designed for lawns up to 800 square metres (approximately 8,600 square feet); the H1500E costs €1999 ($2,375) and is designed for lawns up to 3000 square metres (approximately 33,000 square feet); and the H3000E costs €2499 (approximately $2,969).
