What customers say about "Key Specs"
Lezyne Super GPS Enhanced Cycling Computer
  • Sensor connection solid, gps lock solid, can be set up using the ally app on mobile phone.
  • In any event, I've found it gives accurate measurements, no dropouts or anything like that.
  • I expected it to lose connection in the redwood forest with hills/valleys... but it seems to have done just fine.
  • Loving the ability to now have up to 8 data elements on a single screen.
  • The multiple screens are impressively configurable, you can easily set it up via the phone app to be data-dense, or just target to a few data points like speed and time.
Garmin Edge 520 Bike GPS
  • Easy to use, no issues with connection, great set of items to display.
  • The size/weight is perfect, screen is always legible.
  • I like the size, features and downloads to my iPhone.
  • Great GPS system, perfect size and full of features!

  • The screen is easily readable in all conditions.
  • It has a great screen that is visible daylight, has great backlight for nighttime cycling.
  • GPS buttons logical operation and screen easy to see and not glary in sunlight.
  • The screen is very easy to see in full sun.
Garmin Edge 520 Bike GPS
  • I like the compact size, yet still a big display.
  • Display is bright, and I was surprised how readable it is considering it's color display.
  • The larger display compared to the wrist models is great, and it has true mapping capabilities.
  • Screen size is good. Not too big and not too small. It has enough squares to get the information I want on the screen.
  • There was so little contrast on the display that it was practically unreadable no matter the lighting.

What customers say about "Features"
Lezyne Super GPS Enhanced Cycling Computer
  • Phone and Strava integration were my priorities in selecting a computer that could do more than speed, and the Super GPS delivers.
  • I have my Lezyne computer paired with a Wahoo TICKR heart rate monitor, Wahoo Speed sensor, Wahoo Cadence sensor, and a Google Pixel.
  • I was able to get incoming call notifications and never lost coverage. It syncs up to my Strava via Bluetooth and I was able to download and post my ride very quickly.
  • All sensors paired on the first try and perform as expected.
  • I may have gone with the Bryton 530, but it doesn't have Strava Live Segments support while the Lezyne does.
Garmin Edge 520 Bike GPS
  • With the auto scroll setup I'm able to see more data and my route.
  • I'm using bluetooth to sync to my phone and finding the Garmin Android app to be much more useful than it was with the Garmin 25.
  • With my mobile phone's bluetooth, I'm able to effortlessly synch my ride to garmin connect and auto upload it to my Strava account.
  • I added a speed transmitter primarily for indoor training, then I added a rpm transmitter and I just added a heart rate monitor transmitter. The information it supplies me is great.
  • Constantly says I'm off course when I'm using a pre-planned route.

What customers say about "Battery"
Lezyne Super GPS Enhanced Cycling Computer
  • The battery life is very good on this unit, certainly better than most.
  • All in all, I'm very happy with this and the battery life is great.
  • The gps works at least as well as my phone, and the battery life is much longer than my phone's battery.
  • I’m very happy with my lezyne. You couldn’t run the battery down if you tried.
  • For $100 less than the competition, this does everything you need from a modern cycling computer. The exceptional battery life is a great bonus.
Garmin Edge 520 Bike GPS
  • After 3 hours of use the battery is on track to last about 10 hours with gps.
  • One thing that I have enjoyed is the long battery life. I ride about 140 miles a week which takes 7+ hours and only have to charge it about once every other week.
  • Love this, battery life is great.
  • At night there is a backlight that does drain the battery somewhat rapidly.
  • Battery runs down after only 3 or so hours, so it has to be charged after every ride.
