First Look: Giant Neos Track GPS Cycle Computer

Neos-4

When you first think of the cycling superpower Giant, the first thing to come to mind might be great value bikes such as the well known TCR, the super stiff Propel or the all day Defy. However it seems that Giant are looking to expand their repertoire of products by making a move into the world of GPS with their new NEOS Track computer.

At £149.99 and with all the connectivity you could need, the new NEOS Track looks set to be a cyclists best friend.

Neos-5

The keen eyed of you will notice a similarity in looks between the NEOS Track and the Bryton 530 – and that would be because Giant have been working together with Bryton on this new product. That’s not to say that the device is simply re-badged – because it isn’t. Giant have worked hard to re-design the NEOS from the ground up – changing the layout of the button controls, as well as tweaking the software to make it more user friendly. Working with Team Sunweb and utilizing their feedback and user experience, Giant have come up with not only a great device, but a great valued device too.

Boasting 33 hours of battery life, breadcrumb navigation and both ant+ and bluetooth connectivity the NEOS is up there with some of the big contenders. In the box you get the basics – the device itself, out front mount, spare stem mount and charging cable along with some instructions. Setting the device up is relatively straight forward and pain free. Giant developed their own app – Giant Lab – which you can utilize to upload rides to such sites as Strava and Training Peaks and even for designing routes that sync with the device for its turn by turn navigation feature.

Neos-1

I started using the NEOS with my TACX Flux direct drive trainer which connected to the speed, cadence, heart rate and power meter within seconds. The 2.6 inch screen was ample to have all the required data fields clearly displayed. I never felt as though I had to search around, or that the number of data fields I had on screen were dwarfing the numbers – meaning I could see clearly and quickly.

After spending a good number of hours both indoors and outdoors with this device I can say I’m truly impressed with the features that the NEOS offers. From training with power through to long Audax rides I’d say that the NEOS is going to be a big hit with cyclists from all backgrounds and with a variety of needs.
