Great first time cycling computer. Pairs relatively easily and maintains pairing (no issues like with my Garmin).
That said, I *returned* the unit because it was not at least equal to my Garmin Edge 810
1. Very difficult to see the display in the morning or evening (even on brightest setting)
2. Never got LiveTrack to work even after requesting assistance from tech support (simply turn it on with Garmin) - never got it to use Strava beacon.
3. WiFi cannot be setup if you aren't broadcasting your SSID. Even the discovery only showed a few of the multiple SSIDs my phone finds
4. Loading courses for an event is a complete pain in the a$$. I had to download a RideWithGPS course then upload it to Strava to get it on my device. No partnership with RideWithGPS yet. That said, it was easy to follow the course BUT ...
5. Turn-by-turn does *not* display on all data pages - only when on the navigation page
6. Since you are required to stay on the navigation page, there isn't enough data - you only get 2 data fields to display while navigating
7. Would be nice if the data displayed in more precision than 1 decimal place (nice to see I'm moving uphill with a 2 decimal precision rather than just one ... make me feel like I'm momentarily frozen in time)
The GPS and sensors are fantastic and so much cheaper than Garmin and Wahoo equivalents. The company has several supportive videos on YouTube to help set the GPS and sensors up. The only complaints I would make are related to the Bryton app.
I really love my Bryton Rider 750.
Maggie was great in answering my pre-purchase questions.
The cost was within my price point. The head unit arrived quickly, was simple to setup (intuitive), and works like a champ.
My only issues are: it doesn’t tell you how to setup the radar and I hate the Bryton HRM.
Remedy those issues and I’d give it 5+ stars…
The reason i switched from garmin is because i got sick of buying a new unit every couple years because of battery life. Garmin just didn’t have the battery life. I first tried lezyne and they have awesome battery life but they have the lamest mount that protrudes way above its mounting point. For a company full of engineers that design is just stupid. It’s hideous, reminds me of those old hats kids used to wear with the propeller on top. It’s like, were you making a helicopter or a gps unit? This device has the battery life, lower mount point and a price that’s right. Has all the power metrics and downloads fast with a iphone. It’s a good buy. I have ridden 3 rides and the battery life is still 75%. I couldn’t get 4 hours after a year and of half of owning any garmin starting with the 305 all the way thru the 530 models. Owned them all. Yeah they work great for a year buy the be prepared to buy a new one at twice the price of this. So do yourself a favor and don’t.

Why my Rider 750 doesn't display map?
2. Make sure the device is able to acquire satellites.
Bryton GPS Cycle computers rely on GPS data to track current location, speed and progress. By default, speed is calculated using GPS data, however a speed sensor can also be used to generally improve accuracy. If GPS data is not recording correctly or if the device is unable to acquire satellites, please ensure that the device is not obstructed by:
- Dense tree or cloud cover
- Bridges or tunnels
- Geographic Formations (hills or mountains)
- Other large objects or sky obstructions
Could I navigate on Rider 750 without turning on Bryton Active app?
1. In order to navigate with the Rider 750, the device requires a Bluetooth connection to a smart phone with the Bryton Active app running in the background. If connection is lost or the app is closed during navigation, the connection can be easily reestablished by opening the Bryton Active App and re-selecting the route.
2. After a Follow Track route has been synced with the Rider 750, following the route no longer necessarily requires a Bluetooth connection to a smartphone. Without a connection, the Rider 750 will be able to follow the route exactly as outlined in the file.
How do I switch sensors between bikes?
Utilizing the Rider 750’s sensor pool, switching between bikes with different sensor configurations is as easy as switching the Rider 750 from one bike to the other. Once paired, a sensor will be remembered by the Rider 750 and added to its pool of sensors. When the sensor is awakened, it will appear on the Rider 750 automatically.
Additionally, if more than one sensor is detected, the Rider 750 will prompt you to determine which to use. It is recommended to configure a specific bike profile for each bike that is intended to be used in order to remember bike settings such as wheel size.
