Built for Multisport Athletes

by mikemaxson

We get it, you do more than run. You bike, you run, you ski, you’re a multisport athlete and need a GPS system for your active lifestyle.

Here in San Francisco, we’re blessed with mild weather and access to mountains, trails and water. As an outdoor athlete, it’s hard to stay focused on a single sport. Plans change with the weather. If it’s sunny – I’m on Mount Tam. If it’s stormy – I’m in Tahoe. If it’s just right – I’m surfing. When developing Switch, we approached the design with this in mind. We wanted to create a single device for all sports. A big part of that is the ability to transition from sport-to-sport, or more importantly, from wrist to bike. For this reason, we created the Multisport Mounting Kit.

The Multisport Mounting Kit is a three part system:

Bike Mount

While most users attach the mount to the stem, it can also be mounted to your handle bars. The mount has a cross-hatched back, which makes it compatible with both stems and handlebars.

Wrist Mount

Wrist Mount with StrapThe wrist mount simply attaches around your wrist like a watch. It uses the same wrist straps that come with the watch. These straps can be moved from the mount to the watch with an included screw driver. I’ll do this when I’m marathon training and off the bike for couple months to achieve a slimmer profile.


Lastly, the brain of the system. Switch and Switch Up move between the mounts with ease. It takes a few tries, but once you get it, it’s old hat. Simply follow these steps:

  1. Attach the wrist strap to your wrist and bike mount to your bike.
  2. Snap Switch into the mount by putting the bottom of Switch in first and then push down on the top.
  3. To remove Switch, hold the sides of the watch(at the top) and pull the top of the watch out of the mount.

Note – there are no buttons to press. Simply grab the sides (at the top) and pull back.

The Multisport Mounting Kit comes with Switch Up, but can also be used with Switch. The kit comes with a screw driver to remove the wrist straps from Switch and attach them to the Wrist Mount. Once removed, you’ll see that Switch and Switch Up have the exact same casing, making both devices compatible with the mounts.

If you’re a multisport athlete that runs and rides, consider the Multisport Mounitng Kit. It will improve your transition times and you’ll be better informed.
