What computers have a clock that works while riding?(10 posts)

What computers have a clock that works while riding?Dave Hickey

I have a Vetta RT88 and it's clock works when I'm riding. Most of the other computers have a clock in static mode but not while riding. I hate wearing a watch. Are there any others?

i think the model i have is the 'astrale'. holding the mode button for two seconds when riding switches to clock. the strange part is that speed is not visible when in clock mode
That's what I like about the VettaDave Hickey

Speed and clock are the functions I like showing. I guess I'll buy another Vetta for my other bike.
"Mity3" has one, too (nm)look271

and probably a bunch more.

Did you mean a multi-line display that displays speed, clock, etc. all simultaneously?

Because even 1 and 2 line display models from Avocet and others have the clock; you just have to scroll thru to show it.

I let my bar mounted heart rate monitor tell me HR, time, and stopwatch simultaneously.

Computer tells me speed & distance.

I prefer speed and clock on the same display. I'll scroll for the other functions.

Avocet 35 has current speed in upper half at all times, lower half is scrollable including to current clock time.

The 35 has the simple one line display

I think you are referring to the Avocet 25

The one that looks like a fob-watch or compass has an analog clock that I'm pretty sure is shown while the computer is active. Pretty funky design, but really quite functional. They were selling the wireless model with cadence for around $40 at www.specialized.com, and you can get a stem mount or a mount that fits OS bars as well...

Vetta RT77. It's multi-function, 2-features shown at any given time. I prefer speed and cadence.

Other functions you can scroll down to:
Real time
Ride time
Avg. speed
Max speed
Avg cadence
Odometer
Distance(current)

Good luck in your choice.
