Out of the box, fully charge the Rider 310, mount it on your handlebars, and off you go. Featuring ‘Power On and Go’ with ‘Auto Start/Stop’, it’s as simple as it get for your cycling needs. Supporting ANT+ Heart Rate, Cadence sensor and Power Meter, the Rider 310 can also take your cycling workout to the next level.

Workout files are automatically saved in FIT format, which can be uploaded to popular training sites including STRAVA, Training Peaks, Endomondo, Map My Ride, Garmin, and many more.
Power On and Go
Designed for beginners and intermediate cyclists like myself, there is no need to fiddle with settings for wheel size, time and unit; no more installation and pairing with speed sensor. Rider 310 gets it all covered. Just get the device mounted onto the bike mount, turn it on and you are good to go. Get involved and enjoy the cycling. Rider 310 will take care of the rest. You simply want to go ride with your new gadget and not be frustrated with setting it up – you just want to ride!
If you don’t feel like recording the ride but still want to view your ride data in real time (speed, time, distance, etc.), Rider 310 is what you need. With high-sensitivity GPS, Rider 310 syncs seamlessly with the movement of the bicycle. It starts when you start pedaling, and it stops when your bike stops.
But I wanted to point out that by default, the Auto Start/Stop (Smart Pause) feature is disabled. I didn’t notice that until I started looking at my uploaded data on the Bryton Sport web site. And verifying it with my Garmin VIVOACTIVE recorded files.
Simple but powerful
Don’t let the price of the Rider 310 fool you. The Rider 310 is a powerful cycling computer providing all the necessary data for your workout. Easy to use, yet it incorporates up to 70 functions including Time, Speed, Distance, Calorie, Cadence, Altitude, Power, HR and LTHR (Lactate Threshold Heart Rate). Without purchasing any additional accessories, you’ll even get Temperature and Altimeter readings not found in other comparable and higher priced cycling computers.
If you have more than one bike or more than one user on the Rider 310, the unit can handle two bike profiles.

After uploading your ride files, the ‘My Data’ (collection, history) tab will show all your rides. Select one to see full details including a Google Map showing the route taken.

You can also see the lap breakdown if there is any set and recorded.
If you are using STRAVA or Garmin Connect or other training sites, you can also Export your files in PWX, GPX, BDX, or TCX format to be imported on those sites. Bryton Sport has direct imports to Fit Track, STRAVA, and Training Peaks within ‘My Data’ (collection, history). You can also Upload GPX, KML, KMZ, BDX, and TCX files to your collection.
To lock in your GPS signal, once the Rider 310 is turned on, it will automatically search for satellite signals. It may take 30 to 60 seconds to acquire signals so plan ahead before you start riding otherwise you’ll miss accurate recording of the first few hundred feet. As for the GPS settings, there are two: Full Power and Power Saving. With Full Power, you’ll get maximum position and speed accuracy at the expense of battery power. With Power Saving, you’ll get less accuracy but tolerable with good GPS signal strength. You can also turn off GPS when training indoor – this will save your battery from unnecessary satellite searching…
