Connecting Your SmartWatch with Your Mountain Bike

July 27, 2017 0 comments

Sometime around 2014 I purchased (2) products.  A new Trek Mountain Bike and a Pebble Smartwatch.   At the time Pebble was the first Smartwatch of its kind.  When I purchased my mountain bike being able to switch songs, see who’s calling, reading a text message was almost impossible with either looking at my wrist or taking my phone out of my pocket.  Also another key feature of the smartwatch was I could track speed, miles and time while riding.

I first tried to just attach the watch to the handle bars which failed, then I tried to prop something so it would hold the watch in place.  I went on Amazon and figured someone had to have already created this product and sure enough there was a bunch.  I ordered several different brands.  The best one and cheapest solutions was the Suunto Bike Mount.

Everything worked perfect it sat on the handle bars nicely.  It was easy to remove and attach the Smartwatch.  Around 2014 I think the Pebble was the first Smartwatch, it’s now 2017 and there are a ton of great options available for smart watches with even more features.  Hopefully this post helps you with what I wanted to achieve in 2014.

Below are some other Smartwatches that you can purchase today.
