A New Standard for GPS Bike Computers
OMATA One is a Smart GPS Bike Computer. It is built around the One, our patented digital-to-analog core. The OMATA One translates satellite GPS signals into rotary mechanical movement, so you can see and feel your effort through the physical motion of legible, high-contrast dial hands.
Connect to your OMATA One with our OMATA Utility App. Download your ride data and share it to Strava.
The OMATA One saves all your ride data in the industry standard FIT file format, compatible with all of your favorite online fitness services and applications.
The OMATA One comes in two variants: Metric on Gray, and Imperial on White.
Five data sets are shown on the OMATA One's four digitally controlled rotary dial faces: Speed, Distance, Ascent, Time and Battery Level.
OMATA One’s core movement translates GPS and sensor data into the mechanical motion of its hands. Pedal harder, the speedometer needle climbs, and the kinetic link between your exertion and your bike’s propulsion grows. It’s a sensation that’s hard to explain, but easy to feel.
With a forthcoming firmware update your OMATA One will also record data from your ANT+ Power, Heart Rate and Cadence sensors.
Unlike a digital screen’s ability to detach us from the present moment, OMATA One’s unique analog interface and oath to simplicity have been designed to enhance it.
Your ride time is not when you want to think about your email inbox. It will never interrupt your ride by reminding you that you have a new email or text message.
The OMATA One was designed to respect your ride time when you want to clear your head — or fill it with good creative thoughts. It's a time to chat with your riding buddies, get connected to your own breath, the ache in your legs, the miracle muscle pounding against your chest.
Learn more about our design process and point of view on technology, attention and how we thought about these things while creating the OMATA One.
OMATA distinguishes between data that optimizes performance while in motion, and data that’s useful afterwards. A quick glance at its hands shows how you’re doing, right now. OMATA’s Utility App allows integration with activity tracking services like Strava™ — so you can analyze your performance, after your ride.
Data from your rides are stored as standard FIT files, making the OMATA One fully compatible with an existing ecosystem of online fitness services like Strava and Training Peaks, as well as desktop training software.
OMATA One is designed in Venice Beach, California with a ruthless attention to detail, material, color and proportion. It’s comprised of modern digital and precision mechanical technologies, including a custom movement developed in collaboration with Seiko. And each assembled OMATA One is meticulously hand-crafted in Oulu, Finland.

Just what I needed to extend my analog bicycling with an analog-like (is it an analogue analog device) computer to track all the necessities of my biking. Distance, speed, altitude, attitude. The Omata is a great tool and one of the best bicycling investments I've made. And one of the best Kickstarter projects I've gotten involved in. Highly recommended.
I have had an Omata One KPH for 9 months.
It is a delight to look at and simple to use (I am not a techie).
Charging is quick, over a 5-6' bike ride I may only use approx 50% of the battery.
The mount is sleep, discreet and very sturdy - despite bumpy roads it sits tight. Note if you remove the Omata from its mount mid cycle make sure you do not twist the bevel as you can inadvertently switch it off - grip it by the body.
Calibrating the hands is easy using the phone app and I find it needs to be done every 4-5 rides (I haven't figured out why).
I live in a rural area and it may take a minute or two to find a satellite connection - thus I switch to ride mode as we are preparing to set off.
The display and build quality is first class - the analog display is intuitive to the eye/brain thus not distracting one from watching the road.
I do not download to Strada (personal choice) but the app. has a quirky cumulative total when you connect (fun to see total distance, altitude gained etc...).
I have dropped it onto tarmac once (ouch) but no scratches or dents.
it is not the cheapest device but it is a quality piece and different.
I am very happy with it and it puts the O into the JOY of cycling

Simple yet bold. Beautiful yet not eye-catching. Humble yet proud. Add yet takeaway. The Omata is a something to covet, to cherish. I like it more that I should.
I bought a second bike, specifically for Gravel Riding. I was a bit dubious about sticking a GPS device on it, but when I came across the Omata, I thought I would give it a try. Smart, Quiet, Clean and mainly out of site. Tried it today on a 42KM run and I absolutely love it.....Great job guys.
I’ve only had the chance to use my Omata One briefly on a local training ride. Set up was easy and mounting the bracket straightforward.
Out riding, the speed and distance was easy to read, and all I need to know and, face it, the Omata One looks really nice!
Downloading was easy, and when uploaded to Strava, all the additional information was uploaded too (maps, average soeed etc).
Very satisfied. Great product.
Love it, and so do my club members, everyone wants one!
After years of riding without a computer I started to hear about this new cycling compuer thing called Omata. I admit that I didnt really get it at first until I heard Rhys talk about what inspired its creation and it really clicked with me. Its a computer that gives you the same kind of info as an automoble in a single glance without having to read a bunch of digital mumbo jumbo, just some hands on a face like a nice chrono. This appeals to me and my sense of simplicity and then there's all the background info that you can access after your ride. The hardest part for me was choosing which model to get, miles (white face) or kilometers (black face).
I'm happy the folks at Omata thought of this as its a great departure from the rest of what's out there in a beautifully realized package that literally requires no set-up time and can be transferred between bikes with different wheel sizes too. So good!
A common bout of excitement I receive when people see the Omata on my bike. The Omata is a piece of art that's functionality brings back the simple joys of riding. I use it on my gravel bike and commuter as a way to disconnect from technology while on the trails or heading into work before a long day of staring at a computer screen.
I have been waiting for a bike computer that looks good and the orange speedo needle is the best! Keep up the great work. Thank you!!!!!
Tolle Idee vom Omata Team. Gelungene Umsetzung, ansprechendes Design und präzise Anzeige. Ein Hingucker am Rennrad!
This product is exactly what I was waiting for a long time ago. I love the simplicity and the clear appearance. Nevertheless, it shows me everything that's interesting to know while cycling. It makes every ride to something special for me ;o)
Sto pedalando da un po di tempo con il mio Omata one e ne sono molto soddisfatto !!! Oggi ancora di più visto che ho avuto il piacere di comunicare per il mio aggiornamento beta direttamente con julian che mi ha supportato in videochiamata !!! Top
Well, I just got my bike back from the shop and installed the mounting bracket which could have a liittle larger circumference to accomodate my MTB bar (as the bar tapers, a nylon or rubber gasket would be better as well-aluminum is better than plastic however). I had previously installed the app an synched with my iPhone. Very accurate and simple allignment of the indicators accomplished easily. Took a spin around the block after acquiring GPS signal in about 2-3 minutes. Great improvement over my busy Garmin interface and far more ergonomic and pleasant to look at. I never use all those data screens anyway. Got back and dismounted, removed the unit promptly dropping it on the concrete garage floor! Not a scratch on the exterior but I had to check..rebooted flawlessly and recorded properly. Elegant design and sturdy construction far outweigh the need for all that clutter on the screen and stuff I never looked at anyway!
After decades of multidata collection on my handlebars (powermeter, heartrate, maximum and average whatever…, you name it), I now enjoy cycling with a beautiful piece of technology that shows me just what I need to know during my ride with high precision and on an analogue display, something one is not used to see any more in today’s gadget world. Julian and Rhys have done a remarkable job setting up Omata with dedicated passion for details and for cycling; they are building a strong community that help them further develop this great cycling instrument. Try it out, join Omata; you will wonder why you didn’t get it earlier!
I'd been happily riding with my Omata One since the start of the 2018 season until one day it failed when I was caught out in a rainstorm. One quick e-mail to the Omata team, and a full, quick and easy warranty replacement was underway. But that's not the point. For me, riding has always been relief from the frustrations and dissatisfaction common to modern digital life. I didn't realize how much until I was back starring at that digital display of excessive data. When I un-boxed the replacement, I was struck by how much I had connected to the simple sweep of that needle. How it freed the ride, and freed the mind. And as the saying goes...when you free your mind, the legs follow. That first ride back with it on the bike was bloody fast! And good in all the right ways. Cheers Omata.
Just received my new Omata mph by post. A real occasion. The simplicity and clean design extends to the no nonsense, ergonomic robust and recyclable packaging. It all says quality and good design. The Omata is a beautiful thing to behold, easy to use with clear analogue displays showing only the information you need - nothing more. First ride was a breeze - everything is intuitive. Adds to my ride experience. Boom! Now back and a thing of beauty on my desk
After my career Omata helped me to get back to what cycling is all about. With Omata only providing the essential information, I was finally able to ride my bike freely and without any thoughts of power outputs and cadences. I don’t think I could go back to having a power meter for leisure rides on my bike again. The feelings on the bike I experience now are why I started cycling in the first place. I am grateful to Omata for bringing back these emotions.
Ten miles into my first 50 mile MTB race, I removed the red Garmin from the front of my bike and pocketed it. It was raining, cold, and I was more focused on not crashing than winning. The beeping and flashing numbers (especially that auto-pause that occurs around 3mph) were doing nothing to increase spirits. After that ride, I found myself pocketing the Garmin a lot more, considerably less interested in the second by second progress of my ride. The blocky numbers did not seem to say "you are riding", but rather, "you are not riding hard enough". And while I missed seeing the data at a glance, it wasn't worth having the clunky red square on my bars.
When the OMATA was first on Kickstarter, I was intrigued. It seemed to solve my issue of wanting to see data without being distracted by data. The experience, however, is even better. Where a digital display seemed to scream the judgement of "you're not working hard enough", the smooth movement of the OMATA hands encouraged me to work harder, to push the limits of my body as I pushed the hands clockwise. The data no longer removed me from the experience, but rather became apart of it. I cannot recommend the OMATA enough.
The Omata holds up well on the cobble stone streets of Holland, although I have a Redshift stem just for those rough rides like in old fortress towns like Naarden Vesting, Weesp, Elburg etc. Highly recommend the Omata, simple but complex analogue. The app needs some improvement though.
As a coach, I always want to see data. But sometimes we can be overrun or held back by the numbers. Since the body follows the mind, it's good to be able to get out and just enjoy the act of riding. If an athlete has been doing all the right training and putting in the work, then they should know what effort they do on the bike will mean to them without having to always rely on looking at the data right in front of them.
The Omata is now my favorite way to ride without having the numbers right in front of me, and yet still getting the data I like to see later. I am able to see how off I was from how I felt, and how hard or easy I was really going.
On a more personal level I love watches. Panerai, Bell and Ross, IWC, etc. I don't have one of those yet, but I love basic analogue movement. Similar to my classic car, where my new car does just about everything better, the classic car has so much character, personality, and style.
If these are things that appeal to you, then the Omata will be a perfect match to your Pinarello, Colnago, or any other wonderful bike you love.
my first impression was... wow what a piece of art! the pack arrived in a well thought through packaging, which is a lovely touch! I've used it for well over 1000 miles and it gives me all the info i need to know! it's simple to use! pleasing on the eye! Overall awesome, once you go OMATA you never go back ;)
On the back of my Omata One it says 003/200. Not quite the first KPH version to roll off the production table. I was taken by the concept as soon as I saw those first images on Kickstarter; backed it straight away; and then (im)patiently waited for its arrival.
Since then, the Omata One has been a joy to ride with. It acts a lot like a standard speedometer, and demands about as much attention. I find myself looking around a lot more when I’m on the bike - enjoying Sydney’s sun, water, and forests. I worry less about gradients, speeds, elevation these days - until I get the bike back into the garage and the ride uploaded to Strava. Then I can pore over things and see how I’ve gone.
Using the device is extremely straight-forward - it feels solid, has a few simple functions, and connects easily to both my iPhone and Strava... Its analogue lines complement the bike I ride (a custom-built titanium bike), and ramps up the ride experience several notches. In fact, the Omata is more of a conversation-starter than the bike itself - perhaps not surprisingly so.
Bottom line: I love it. One of the best bits of cycling gear I own.
The Omata One is a beautifully made product and one that has enhanced my experience of riding more than I ever expected.
As an architect I love beautiful detailing and in the hand the Omata feels and looks like a crafted object. The bespoke typeface is legible and crisp, and the general build quality is inspiring in the hand in the same way your favourite watch might be. Set up and connectivity with Strava, iPhone etc was a breeze.
Riding with the Omata is where it's at though, and seeing the dials rise as you start to spin the pedals is genuinely exciting. Seeing your ride data delivered to you graphically, and most importantly kinetically, feels wholly appropriate. Above all, the information that the Omata delivers feels just right and part the experience is to be reminded why you started riding bikes in the first place.
As a huge fan of well designed and well made bike gear I watched with great interest as the Omata One was was announced and then finally released earlier this year. When I got my new custom steel road bike this Spring, I got the Omata to complete the look. I have not regretted the choice one bit. The design is fabulous. I love to just look at it while I ride. The operation is as well designed as the look. Turn it on and ride. No pairing, no fuss, just keep the needle pointed toward 18mph.
Very nice look, high quality in materials, assembly and manufacturing (would like to wear a watch looking like that).
Usability: exactly what I expected. Really nice graphics for figures, symbols & ticks: looks like a high definition display. The hands allow instantaneous catch of speed/distance/duration/elevation data. Never observed this with digital display we are used to see on traditional bike computers.
The App is OK even is character font size is a little bit too small. Will be updated...
I love my garmin for all the data it provides but using my Omata has liberated my cycling. Just being able to simply ride and see how fast and far I've gone makes life much simpler and enjoyable. Overly lay this with the fact its such a cool piece of kit - everyone wants admires it. Winner.
I spent many years staring at digital screens. Scrutinising over cadence, heart rate and power. Counting down the seconds on the until the next effort. I got board; I question if I even enjoyed riding my bike. I took some time off and thought about ‘why’ I ride. I realised for me, it isn’t about numbers or staring at flashing lights telling me I’m going to hard or not hard enough! For me it’s about a release. Feeling, well, nothing; almost a form of meditation. I want to see, smell and immerse myself in where I’m riding.
The Omata emphasises my ride, it doesn’t detract from it. The simplicity of the design, coupled with advanced GPS software make for the perfect riding partner.
Had to spec my @thevanillaworkshop #urbanracer with something special to keep track of the journeys, and the style and function made my Omata ONE the perfect fit. Simple and advanced at the same time, I think the ONE gets as many heads turns as the whip.
When I saw a picture of Omata a few years ago I thought, 'wow what a beautiful device'.
And when I unpacked my own Omata I was even more impressed. It's an incredibly well made device you can feel the quality when you hold it in your hand.
It's the same with bicycles. I like when they look good and are well made and you can see craftsmanship.
Omata works nice and simple. You see the speed hand move smoothly when you accelerate. You can easily read the distance, altitude and time of your ride. When you're back home you can analyse your ride on Strava when you want.
The Android app needs to be developed more, but they're working on it
Omata One is a beautiful product that truly living by an example of ‘’minimal’ life. When everything is all connected; your cycling computer, smart watch, smart phone and emails, I often found myself getting distracted while I’m on saddle. However, Omata One helps me from getting distracted and be able to focus on my ride more. And it looks beautiful. It may not have all the datas you want; cadence, powers, etc - it has just right amount of information you need. Still needs improvements on firmwares and app, but all good so far! It looks dang good!
We’ll keep you up to date with the latest OMATA news.
