The only problem was that you can't really use it at night unless you have a torch, as there is no light up display.
Don't let that put you off though, it's well worth the money.
In many ways, this computer is very well priced (more so the model with heart rate features and included chest belt). - Unlike many others, this one displays all relevant data on one screen, saving you having to scroll or having to use the scan feature which toggles between data. Its all there: Heart Rate, speed, distance and trip time/stop watch. There are numerous other features such as temperature, average speed, average heart rate etc. available by scrolling and there is a handy back light.
Reset after a trip is easy and done through holding one of the buttons for 3 seconds.
The computer is small, light and seems solid with good, positive button action and came supplied with a good quality handlebar bracket.
The problem I've experienced is with the range of the sender unit and receiver. I use mine on an indoor spin bike and it will not read the speed/trip function if further apart than around 30centimeters (a foot). Not good. Heart rate is transponded over a larger distance and seems accurate and reliable though.
Please bear the above in mind. If you have a bike with high handle bar to wheel distance, you may encounter problems. - However, this is not necesseraly unique to this brand as a quick browse though some other wireless bike computer reviews will quickly reveal.
If in doubt, go wired, the data can be more reliable and weight is a non-issue. Unfortunately that counts out this particular model with heart rate function.Read more ›
It has survived many seasons of horrible Welsh coastal weather.
The battery in the computer has only needed replacing once, and replacements nowadays are cheap.
The computer is easy to read, accurate, but you may find the average speed feature annoying, or what you base your overall performance on.
Two faults with the unit, not backlit and it is prone to interference, usually from certain types of traffic lights in cities, making your speed shoot up for a brief moment, it is not a huge problem, but can register your maximum speed feature worthless.
Overall, a very good unit, easy to install and use.
Fitting of the wireless sensor pickup to a mountain bike with suspension on front forks (larger than normal diameter and wider than normal road bike forks)makes it awkward to fit as the sensor needs to be angled towards the wheel rather than along side the wheel to pick up the magnet as it revolves with the wheel. No adaptors for such bikes have been supplied. Cable ties are OK for fitting the wireless sensor but it would be better if a clip or bracket allows for mounting inside the forks. The display is great and easy to use.
BUT sadly I have found that this device is very susceptible to RF interference, which means that sometimes it reports my current speed as being much higher than it really is. This is most noticeable when I remove the display unit from my bike (for security) and walk into my office building. This morning I clocked a top speed of 75 mph - and I wasn't even on my bike at that point! Shame though - I really would like to know just what my real top speed is, but the phantom readings overwrite my top speed record every time.
For example, as I walk into my office there's an electronic door release. If I hold the display unit near to that it jumps from 0 mph up to ~65 mph(!) If I hold my mobile phone in the same hand as the unit, again, the speed reading shows I'm moving. But of course, the sensor on my bike is hundreds of metres away, so it should not be recording anything. (Surely its not so hard to build some manufacturer id into the comms signals between the sensor and the display unit on these things?!)
Consequently this unit has so far been a waste of money for me. I have not spoken to ATech about this yet - but somehow I expect it might not be as easy as dealing with a regular highstreet brand ... ;-)

Great piece of kit and very reasonably priced. Fast delivery tooPublished on 15 Oct. 2014 by K. M. Rondel
Its too small and fiddly to use and if you use glasses you need them to read the display. It's easily fitted to the bike but I can't be bothered using itPublished on 25 Aug. 2014 by B K SAMBROOK
