    Does it exist? Inexpensive analog clock to fit Garmin quarter turn mount.

    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...

    There are quarter turn adapters with VHB backings that are made for attaching a phone, but there's no reason you can't use them to mount a watch or stem cap clock. Besides maybe not being able to replace the batteries.

    Search "Garmin quarter turn phone mount"

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

    If you already have a Garmin Edge of assorted flavors, you can get a free iQ app that'll turn turn the screen into a clock.

    A very expensive clock.

    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. Iíll 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?

    No, but I could remail it to you if that makes sense. Hit me up on PM...
