I haven't delved very deeply into all the functions and features on this device, but I am very happy with accuracy and the detailed data it provides. The menu system has a learning curve, but once you get it, it is pretty easy to use.
The battery life is the best feature. It takes a while to figure out how to get the unit to talk to Strava, ridewithgps, and to link with the Bryton active app but it all has ended up working out alright. It paired effortlessly with my power meter, cadence and speed sensors. The bread crumb map and all the features have worked well.
Easy to read very accurate. Simple to use.
If you're looking for a affordable bike computer with most bells and whistles this is the one. You can even program your route ! When I'm on climbs I like to looks at the elevation chart to pace myself .... if garmin seems like a steep price... this is the bike computer for you
I am loving this item. I will come back to give my final review after more bike rides. My first ride on this computer was awesome. I am loving it.
