Having never heard or ridden with Bryton I was super stoked to give this thing a go. When it comes to bike computers, I think of it in three general categories. App/phone interface, computer operating system, and physical use/reliability.
1. My biggest knock on this specific computer was just in the connectivity and interface of the App. It took me a few hours to get this thing to connect with my phone initially, which in our day and age of tech shouldn't be a thing. Once I got it connected I thought the app itself was a bit clunky compared to others. Once I got the hang of it the ability to specify the fields of view was great, and it connected and uploaded to Strava/Training Peaks seamlessly. Although I struggled to get the computer to connect to my phone, it synced instantly with my HR monitor, Power meter, and cadence sensors.
2. Obviously switching between interfaces takes some time to get used to, but once I got the hang of it the Bryton was great. The triple tap, and double tap uses of the side buttons is great for not having to scroll through a bunch of menus. Too many buttons is annoying, and not enough is equally as frustrating. Bryton nailed it on this model. The GPS directions worked great, and the large screen is easy to see with the backlight on or off. The auto pause feature was super reliable, and there was no issue about ride upload or GPS tracking.
3. Out of curiosity I wanted to see how long I could ride this without charging and I got about 20 hours of use before needing to re-charge. For someone who loves a quick exit when I have enough time to get a ride in, it was great to know that I could go 3-4 rides without recharging. The mount is made of metal as opposed to the plastic mounts that usually come stock with other computers and is super sturdy and secure on the bars. The computer itself is well made, and looks like it could take a beating over a few years of use.
This is a great value to money option that is on par if not better than other computers at this price point. As Bryton improves the App interface my rating would change from four to five stars. After I got everything connected I have been stoked.
