One of the beautiful things about bicycling is the simplicity of it. When you are out on a ride – it is just you, your bike, and all the hills between point A and B. For Rhys Newman, the user interface on modern bicycle computers disrupted that peaceful flow, so he set out to make the OMATA One.
This computer is the world’s first GPS analog bike speedometer. It combines all of the information you would want to get out of an advanced GPS computer with a gorgeous watch-face like mechanism. On just one surface, the OMATA One tracks your speed, distance, ascent and time spent on the saddle. This isn’t just some design project thrown on Kickstarter by some college students – the principals running this project have enlisted the help of world class designers, product specialists, and even world champion bicyclist Fabian Cancellara to make sure the speedometer meets the most rigorous requirements. You can get one of these gorgeous riding tools from the L.A. based Omata starting at $500+. [Purchase]
