Lezyne make some interesting devices and I reviewed the super GPS cycling computer a while back with a relatively recent update to the review <here>.
One of their more interesting models (that I haven’t had hands-on time with) is the wrist-based Enhanced Micro C – colour GPS watch – as shown to the right (it has TBT navigation and STRAVA segments). An interesting format for a running watch from what started out as a cycling device.
I do like the Super GPS and, indeed, actually use it. It is a little quirky in terms of the menus, buttons and setup but once that’s done it’s mostly good-to-go with little going wrong.
What I have a gripe about is the customer service
Essentially there isn’t any. Or at least that’s how it seems.
I have never, ever had a single response from them or their distributor on any technical issue. I did have a response from their marketing team but not on a technical issue.
Essentially I thought I was going more crazy than normal and was convinced, for probably over a year, that my power meter WHICH WAS CORRECTLY PAIRED BY ANT ID was actually sometimes being ignored and it was pairing to whoever-I-was-riding-with’s PM at the time.
With the advent of the newer models superseding the Super-GPS I imagined that firmware updates from this small company may have taken an understandable backseat.
Well today, here comes a firmware upgrade finally sorting out what is a relatively serious bug AFTER A YEAR. C’mon guys at least communicate- and yes I am sure hidden on a page somewhere on the blog there is some reference.
- Improved Ant+ sensor connection
- Fixed Ant+ pairing to only pair with the same sensor after restarting the GPS
- Improved Shimano D-Fly Di2 auto reconnect
- Ant+ power meter battery reporting now percentage based
- Refined power calculations with crank and wheel based Ant+ power meters

Curious if the firmware update fixed the issue of pairing to other people’s sensors & not picking up your own? For the second year in a row I’ve done Dirty Kanza without cadence or HR reafings because of this issue. Support is virtually nonexistent, thinking of getting the wahoo bolt.
from memory – I think so. not 100% sure tho.
Update — I had the Year 9 (first generation) Super GPS — they never did fix the sensor pairing issue. Instead they rolled out the Year 10, with more features and more support, and by all appearances abandoned the Year 9.
I bought a Wahoo Bolt shortly after I posted this. After 6 months, ~3000+ miles, including a couple century+ races, I have not had a single problem with it. The navigation has been a revelation — I’ve never really thought navigation on a computer was very important because I usually know where I am and I can read a map, but since I have it anyway it’s turned out to be rock solid and a great feature — especially during the race when I forgot my cue sheets.
The Lezyne still works and I still have it, and for someone who isn’t that interested in data from sensors it’s a great option, but ultimately I found the Wahoo to be just as reliable and much better. Also, third-party mounting hardware actually exists for the Wahoo.
yeah i have a bolt…solid. am a recent convert (the lezyne was a Garmin backup 😉 )
Hahaha…..a year later and they’re still having issues with these GPS units.
I have one and it was a waste of money,nothing but problems.
If anyone buys one of these GPS units after ALL the bad reviews,then they deserve the headaches that go with it.
Lezyne simply cannot get it together. They rolled out a product and actually made it worse as time went on. Bugs and Glitches Galore,yet they still feel the need to “improve” the firmware……why don’t they just fix the current and past issues before they move forward creating more newer issues.
yeah i had initial issues with the WATCH C. but the super gps is pretty solid in my experience. i regularly use it as a ‘backup’ deivce on super long rides as i know it will be the only unit working at the end
