Bang for your Buck
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Bryton may be a little smaller than some of the giants of the GPS world but they definitely belong in the conversation with the likes of Garmin and Wahoo. While the Aero 60 doesn't look sexy it more than gets the job done at half the price of some of its counterparts. It may lack some features like color display and touchscreen (not a negative in my mind), but this also gives it incredible battery life. The app allows you to personalize the display relatively easily as well as upload data to Strava. Distance and elevation matches up with what my Garmin Edge reads. This unit is also used by one of the World Tour teams at the highest level if that tells you anything.

Bryton Rider Aero
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. Shoot me an email, or give us a call with any questions!

A great stand alone computer!
- 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. Pros: 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. Cons: 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. Final thoughts: 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
- 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!
