Anyone ever seen an inexpensive analog clock to fit in a Garmin quarter turn mount? My search turned up nada.
TIA for the help.

Stem CAPtain is probably the closest.

Although getting a DogEars Garmin repair kit and mounting it to the back of a watch may work...

Nope. Certainly not inexpensive. There is this, but it goes way beyond what you're asking for, and is absolutely not inexpensive:

Stem CAPtain is probably the closest.
Only product I know of.

Thanks for the thoughts, guys. I have a commuter bike with a K-edge combo mount, with a Niterider Lumina in the lower position, and I often leave the Garmin at home when I take the train as part of the commute, due to risk of theft. Thought an inexpensive clock would be a nice alternative to fill the void.

I have a few of these somewhere in the basement



I stuck one on the back of an old Garmin 310 to use a K-edge mount on my daughters bike, after drilling two holes for charging. With a regular watch you probably wouldn't need the holes.

I've always liked the idea of a analogue instrument, but to me it was for the minimalism, i.e. I'd want a single dial that either gave "KPH" or "Watts".

The Omata is way too busy a design, in addition to the obvious pricing issues.

Thx for the tip. I’ll likely go that route with a small clock insert.

I noticed this T&T clock on a motorcycle over the weekend... might be a good candidate to stick on such a mount?

I think in this case we're referring to the display being graphical rather than numeric. Even mechanical clocks are not analog as they count discrete oscillations.
