Bought this as a stopover whilst my Garmin 520 was being repaired. It's ANT+ and power meter compatible which is a must for me and has a plethora of power data with all the usual measurements. Average power, 3s power and Normalised power being my favourites. But there are a lot more you can explore. Normalised power unusually reads a little higher than I expected but is more to do with the Bryton NP calculation employed. I've paired this with Garmin HR and Tacx smart trainer over ANT+ so no issues there. The display is large and bright. Very readable. The screen LCD is not as high quality (resolution) as say my Garmin 520 and the plain black and white LCD feels a tiny bit slower but no less useable for it. It's important to note - this is a non-mapping unit. It does have rudimentary navigation in the form of a breadcrumb trail but not maps. Bryton have adopted a twist click mount … similar to Garmin's. Similar in that the Bryton will fit a Garmin mount but lacks the final click as it locks into position. I've used an elastic band strategically placed to provide a snug fit on a Garmin mount. Otherwise, creativity with a craft knife is the other route to which I personally know too little about. GPS lock and trace has proved fast and accurate. The Bryton App is much improved. Perhaps too much to go into in this review. Note Bryton units are registered to owners and cannot be re-registered without decoupling from another account. This poses a problem only if buying secondhand or refurbished. The interesting feature of this unit is it's use of 3 single buttons for all controls at the base of the unit. Great for avoiding accidental key presses but can be a bit fiddly as you cycle through options. Luckily this is only a challenge on setting up and in practice it is not that much of an issue. I tend not to touch the GPS during ride. The biggest gripe of the unit is the slow speed of uploads to Bryton using the bluetooth phone app. It transfers over bluetooth to your phone just like Garmin but it can take a relative long time. I think the same route being transferred on a Garmin is significantly faster. By the time this has uploaded - Garmin users will have uploaded and be studying their Stravas. This could plainly be a difference between a compressed and uncompressed file sizes. Is Bryton uncompressed? Garmin compressed? Its the only way I can explain it anyway. All in all a great specification. Possibly everything you could want from a non-mapping unit. Configurable screen. Loads of data options. But laggy uploads and 3 button control is clever, takes a bit of getting used to but sometimes leaves you a bit frustrated. Pricing for this unit makes this an extremely attractive proposition if the price of Garmins leave you challenged. There's not a lot can touch this at this price-point.
I bought this to track my rides. Although I haven't used the power/cadence/HR monitors, its customisable display and easy-to-use functions make it a great computer. I like the larger display (my previous bike computer was the smaller Cateye Strada Wireless) and the backlight will be great for use during winter commutes. Seems to be pretty acvurate too. Very impressed!
