Customize your activity screens

You can customize each activity screen (the pages on the cyclometer that you see when riding). For each page, you can choose:
- the number of fields (values): between 1 and 5 (the size adjusts automatically so if you want bigger numbers, limit the values per page)
- the type of value for each field
- the number of pages (up to 9)
These settings can be adjusted on the cyclometer or even more easily on the Decathlon Connect app.

Good but not great
Darren (United Kingdom) Used for 4 to 6 months
Pros
- easy to setup and use
- easy to read
- auto pause is very quick
- app has a nice interface

Cons
- extremely slow to sync
- technical support very poor

More on sync, I have my Decathlon Connect app also connected to my Fitbit and Strava. At first it synced to Strava with no issues then after a Strava update it refused to. I finally figured out, with no help from support, that the issue was I needed to sync with my Fitbit first then open the Decathlon Connect app, sync my ride and then it would upload it to Strava.
Syncing your ride with the app is painfully slow, so much so I find my phone locks and I have to start all over again. Sort this out please!
not worth it
Maxime (United Kingdom) Used for 8 to 12 months
Bought few months ago and used it >10times, or tried to use it, but:
- battery is unreliable > just today again, i started my ride with 66% and 5 minutes in the ride the battery goes down to 11% and runs out before i finish my ride (luckily i also tracked the ride on my garmin watch as a backup).
- sync with the phone app is unreliable, almost after every ride i've lost hours trying to synchronise a ride to see data on strava. No access to the data by USB, only wireless through the app, which make it a nightmare as the app isn't good.

The good:
Had no issues connecting my ANT+ sensors
It's easy to configure the screens on the unit using the app.
Battery life is excellent

The bad:
The computer will occasisonally run into GPS issues which result in the file becoming corrupted. If this happens there is no way to actually get to the file as it will not upload to Decathlon Coach. This results in the ride being lost.

I have had issues with rides syncing to Decathlon Connect. I haven't lost any rides this way but it has frequently taken multiple attempts at syncing, often not doing so until a following day. There is no way of getting files directly off the unit e.g. using a USB cable

The temperature shows is approximately 5C too high. Not a big deal for me personally.

Most inexplicably the computer doesn't track time accurately! It will be 1-2 minutes short over an hor. It's easy to test by turning auto pause off, leaving the unit to run for an hour and comparing against a reliable source. Or by exporting your ride as a .gpx file and then reimporting into whatever tracking site or software you use.

Summary:
I bought this unit as a backup device for when I was did an Everesting, so it was running alongside a unit that I know produces verifiable data.
I can't recommend this computer for serious regular use, there are too many points in the recording and transfer process where it fails in addition to the data it collects being inaccurate.
