- Q & A
A great stand alone computer!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Before using this computer, I'd never really put Bryton into the ring with the other big names in the computer game. Now that I've used it, I believe that it stands toe to toe with some of the better computers in the industry.
Setup: Setup on this computer is relatively simple. All you have to do is download the app and connect it to your phone. It's easy to customize the app to your needs with a handful of screens and data points.
Reliability: I felt like this device was very reliable. Once I figured out how to connect my sensors, I never had any problems with connecting them again. The climbing data I got back from it was almost identical on the same ride that I did twice using this device. I liked the out-front mount and felt like the one that they provide is super sturdy.
Aesthetic: This computer is simple and looks great because of it. It isn't a flashy device by any means, which I personally loved. I only had one time where the data screen got just a little covered by its own shadow when the sun was in just the right place. Other than that, the screen was always easy to see and didn't cause any problems with glare.
Button navigation: The only thing that was a little confusing for me at first on this device was the button navigation system. I didn't read the instructions for it though, so I consider that to be a user error.
Upload speed: I did notice that my rides took a little longer to upload than on other platforms I've used. Once it was in the Bryton system though I had no trouble getting it into Strava.
When comparing this device to the Wahoo Roam or Edge 530, I would say that it doesn't quite measure up in it's capability to analyze the data. Garmin takes the cake there, followed closely by Wahoo. To me though, the device was more reliable than a Garmin in it's connectivity and battery life, and has the ability to do things like a drink timer, which Wahoo doesn't. However, the price point on this computer is what makes it AMAZING. Without a doubt you are getting your money's worth for this device and you won't be sorry you made this purchase!
Fast & Functional
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
In trying to pinpoint the major differences between what Bryton has to offer vs. the other guys, for me it boils down to iOS and Android. Sure one will be flashy and streamlined, but you're paying a premium for design and not necessarily function. This is not to say Wahoo and Garmin don't offer a solid product, but for those of us early adopters who like to try something new then I believe Bryton has a lot to offer.
The first thing you'll notice when you power on is how quickly the system is up and running. A superlight operating system allows the Aero to boot up in just seconds with GPS acquired and sensors paired. Screen personalization is on-par with the competition and you can view as much or as little as you'd like. After you finish a ride, you'll find the data to be incredibly accurate as Bryton has access to American, European, Chinese and Russian satellites. The companion app is a little basic, but as most of us push data to Strava this is a secondary complaint for me.
My only complains with the Aero are unique to this model and not necessarily the others. 1. Button placement could be a bit better as the bottom two are inconveniently located when mounted. This leads me to 2. the Aero computer mount itself. At the moment, there is no option for aftermarket mounts. The included mount is a decent alloy, but something as personal as a GPS computer should have options for personalization instead of leaving users with a proprietary part.
Other callouts are the impressive battery life (two weeks of riding and still at 60%), great value and stellar software support. Bryton makes great GPS computers for those who don't want to break the bank or sacrifice performance!
