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.
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.
