Good day...so far good but on my last ride, two weeks ago, dated the ride as April 02 2001...why?..i dont know...all other rides before that were ok....
I have used the GPS twice now and it's been great. Consistent connection even in dense forests and ravines where normally I'd expect a poor signal. Useful features, good battery life. The button placement is a little awkward, that's really the only negative I can think of for the device. The app it connects to could use some work. I'm especially frustrated by the fact that you need cell service to upload a route from your phone to the GPS. I have the maps stored on my phone, so why do I need an internet connection to upload them? Very frustrating.
I bought my first Bryton 420 almost 2 years ago. I purchased this one as a backup. It has good battery life, is easy to see, easy to upload to phone after a ride, syncs automatically with Strava. I purchased the first one because I wanted to record more than heart rate, cadence specifically.
Very happy with the Bryton Rider 420. It provides more than enough data fields, links with my phone so I can see texts on the fly, and the battery is so far superbe.
