OMATA One KPH Gray
OMATA One KPH Gray
OMATA One is a modern cycling computer built around the One, our patented digital-to-analog modern mechanical movement. The OMATA One translates GPS and other sensor data into precision rotary mechanical movement. As you move, it moves. You can see and feel your effort through the physical motion of dial hands.
We believe the analog presentation of your effort is much more in harmony with riding a bike. You push down on your pedals, feel the physical effort of your legs, heart and lungs — and your wheels turn as the OMATA One's Speed hand rises.
Everyone who takes the time to ride with it agrees: it changes the way they ride. Read the reviews down below from your fellow cyclists who really ride with the OMATA One.
The OMATA One comes in two variations: Metric on Gray, and Imperial on White. Above is Metric on Gray.
The OMATA One shows five data sets on four digitally controller rotary dial faces: Speed, Distance, Ascent, Time and Battery Level.
With a forthcoming firmware update we will also be able to capture and record data from your ANT+ sensors, like Power, Heart Rate and Cadence.
Our OMATA Utility App (iOS with Android in public beta) allows you to download your rides, review their summary and easily share your rides to Strava.
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.
Included in your Box along with the OMATA One is a USB-A to USB-C cable for charging (and as an alternative data transfer mechanism) and a K-Edge Pro Mount for 31.8mm Handlebar with installed OMATA Insert (Extra OMATA Inserts are available.)

A beautiful piece, I am not missing my Garmin Edge 800 much. ANT+ would be nice to get a better speed reading. After a wet ride the bezel can get a bit crunchy. Like the look of the app, but a little more info would be nice. Strava takes care of most of that but I prefer to not use Strava.
Nice piece of kit!
I've been riding with my Omata one kph for about a month now. I love the clean simple style but alsoknowing that behind that awesome dial is all the electronic functionality I need. I solved the one small personal gripe of no time of day by installing a mount for my Liv GX1 which matches perfectly. You guys should get together for a collaboration both being California based!
Can't comment on the app as I have an android phone but have manually uploaded the files to Strava and that works ok. Also hanging out for the firmware upgrade so I can record other ant+ data for later review.
Overall loving the product.
The OMATA One KPH gray is tremendous: precision, perfection, style... I chose the KPH even though I am American and ride in the US and normally accustomed to the imperial use of MPH. I chose KPH because of the numbering / secondary dial positioning plus I like the grey color background that makes it easier to read. The MPH has the some of the numbers cut off by the secondary dials, whereas the KPH has all fully displayed. Although I know imperial, I am accustomed to metric, so not an issue and the ideal number of 30 KPH, equivalent to 18 MPH, is exactly where it needs to be at the top - full speed ahead. I try to be consistent with the equivalent 18 MPH rides and the 30 KPH, although the same speed, provides for greater psychological impact, motivation and achievement. Man, I was doing 30 for the entire ride today...WOW!!! (not worried about the units of measure)
I just love the simplicity and clarity of the display, old school analogue with no clutter and the ability to read what you need to immediately.
It is perfect for the information I need during a ride and I enjoy riding more because I'm not straining to see and pick out the information on a screen or constantly wondering if I'm on track - that's another old school return, plan and know my route with iPhone backup if needed :) No fiddly buttons or touch screen and no myriad of functions I will never use (okay, I do use alternative for heart rate and cadence).
Cannot wait to slot it onto the front of my new Ti bike when it arrives - a perfect finishing touch!
Great product i would say..
Please also develop this product such as connected (automated) to any sources ie strava , so no need to send the data manually.
Also some development which is you have plan in next year
The omata has a gentle turn around the clock hands and good visibility. The gps is well captured and the log record is accurate.
Battery life is good, and I am very satisfied with this speedometer.
But there is one thing that is not good.
The body is so easily returned from the mount.
Be careful when turning the bezel so that the body does not detach from the mount.
As I rotate the bezel every time the body runs away from the mount, I am a little worried that the mount will wear out.
Everything else is a good speedometer. I recommend this speedometer to every rider I meet.
Later, I expect to see a variety of color editions. (Especially, I will be happy if the pink edition comes out)
I like to save my cycling data on Strava, but was annoyed by the live segments and the Garmin peeps. Thrown away. Since the Omata I enjoy the rides, feel my legs, hear the quiet chain run.... no data distraction.... discussions with other drivers from "super cool" to "don't like me at all and it has too little data" ... perfect :-)
I had been coveting the OMATA for a couple of months before taking the plunge and essentially buying it unseen, as we do online these days. It has delivered in spades, surpassing every expectation. I fell in love with the old school analogue display, and immediately felt as if I benefitted from the (perhaps placebo effect!) direct correllation between effort expended and the movement of the red needle to the right. It's equally at home on the road bike as well as on my fixed, which I had never ridden with a computer before 'cos, well, you just don't, do you? But the look of the OMATA lends itself even to a very traditional steel-framed fixed gear....I would still never put a more "traditional" bike computer on it.
The phone app is a little basic.....the UI is not my favourite, but perhaps this will evolve over time. At the end of the day it's certainly not an issue for me as a user because I load it to Strava and then review my rides there - the link to Strava works well!
Well done Team OMATA on a beautiful and practical design. A case of form meeting function....something that happens rarely today.
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
