The newest superhighway in Paris won’t hold a single car

Paris Biking REVe Highway
Biking can be an incredibly fun and healthy way to get around, unless the crowded city you live in isn't really conducive to bicycles. That's currently the case in Paris, but the crowded city is fixing its biking problem. Specifically, local authorities have committed to creating some 28 miles of bike-only roads and Paris has just inaugurated the first stretch of its cycling super highway.

Satechi’s Apple Watch Grip Mount plays music, shows notifications from steering wheels or bike handlebars

satechihandlebar

While it’s not the first Apple Watch bike handlebar mount to be announcedSatechi’s Apple Watch Grip Mount ($15) appears to be the first to actually hit stores — and it’s very affordable, besides. Made from two pieces of mostly matte plastic — an Apple Watch-holding clip and a handlebar- or steering wheel-ready cuff — the Grip Mount comes in either 38mm or 42mm Watch sizes. Side controls are accessible from the right edge of the clip, and you can rotate the Watch’s screen to your preferred orientation relative to wherever you’ve mounted it.

How practical is the Grip Mount? Well, if you want a way to Bluetooth stream a playlist full of music directly to your car stereo or a pair of bike-safe headphones, the Apple Watch is the smallest Apple wireless audio device around. On the other hand, you’ll either need to enter a passcode to interact with the Apple Watch’s screen, or disable the passcode lock feature, which means you probably won’t be doing a lot of tapping on the display when you’re riding or driving. But if you want to add a little screen to your handlebars or steering wheel, this is about as good of an option as you’ll find at an inexpensive price point.

CyClip is an Apple Watch bike handlebar mount arriving April 30th

Var-CyClip-Apple-Watch-01

An upcoming product called CyClip will act as a bicycle handlebar mount for the Apple Watch. Currently in development by a company called Var out of Michigan, the team plans to launch the product shortly after Apple launches the Apple Watch in April.

CyClip provides a simple and elegant solution to a simple problem. Just install and then click in your watch module. Taking it off is also easy, just push in the release mechanism and then remove the watch… We use all metal die-cast parts that meet the demand of the road. The adapter secures to your handlebar using hardware compatible with standard bike tools.

The company shared a few features for CyClip not shown on its website including the ability to mount a battery pack for charging on-the-go. It will also have “an adapter that will allow the watch to fit over the entire unit with the band attached as well as to clip inside the unit without the watch band.”

The company hasn’t yet announced pricing, but it hinted at a price tag below $50. It’s accepting sign-ups on its website for those interested in learning more. It plans to have the CyClip available by April 30th.

CyClip-01 CyClip-02 CyClip-03

Yesterday Apple scheduled a press event for March 9th where it will likely take time to give us a refresher and new details about Apple Watch ahead of the device’s launch in April. While Beats previously offered a bike mount of its own for the Beats Pill Bluetooth speaker before Apple acquired the company, we haven’t heard much regarding official accessories for Apple Watch. We reported, however, that Apple does plan to have at least its own straps available to purchase separately at launch.
