It’s hard to beat old-school analogue displays when it comes to easy-to-read ways of displaying info. Reminiscent of the speedos on classic cars, the OMATA One speedometer puts cutting-edge GPS technology within a stylish, vintage display, and is now live on Kickstarter.
Featuring a display which shows speed, distance, ascent and time, the OMATA One translates digital GPS computer data into an analogue function using a custom mechanical assembly the company developed in partnership with watchmakers Seiko Precision Inc.
The information is also recorded and can be downloaded to the training and recording application of your choice, which includes Strava and Training Peaks.
Although the display only shows those four aforementioned metrics, the device will also record KOMs/QOMs, personal records and goals, and can export data in GPX format. Post-launch the company will work on direct pairing and integration with mobile applications.
“The OMATA One is as much a statement on the nature of modern product design and technology, as it is a statement on the essential character of cycling” said Rhys Newman, one of the founders of OMATA.
