Lezyne celebrated the tenth anniversary of its GPS debut by releasing one of the most effective, economical lines of GPS computers we've ever mounted on our handlebars. Across the line, the internals were completely redesigned, but the Micro Color GPS Watch takes the design one step further by liberating the unit from the confines of a handlebar. It can still mount on a bar with an included adapter, but we understand the appeal of a clean, clutter-free cockpit. The Micro Watch lets you keep the bar tidy but still take advantage of GPS data tracking, and it easily transitions between lifestyle, running, hiking, and--of course--cycling modes to map your biometrics and the landscape while exploring the world around you. Like its bar-mounted stablemate, the Micro Color GPS Watch's full-color display represents a slight departure from Lezyne's otherwise understated approach to looks. In our experience with the Micro Color, this helps to more easily identify information at a glance, as each different piece of data displays next to a colored symbol: power output is a yellow bolt, heart rate is a red cardioid shape, navigation is divided between yellow characters (arrows and distances) and white (narrativized directional prompts), etc. Though it does represent a departure, the addition of pigments to the Micro Color's screen is also a logical step in Lezyne's function-focused development philosophy. Though its name suggests otherwise, the Micro Color GPS Watch enjoys an expanded list of features that put it on par with Lezyne's more robust GPS units. the Micro picks up features that the Macro drops, including Glonass connectivity, ANT+, and a built-in barometer and accelerometer. It still connects to the GPS network and broadcasts via Bluetooth, but the added features make it even more effective. This is especially true of the barometer and accelerometer, which reduce the dead spots and wonky readings that occasionally result when a handheld device is communicating on a...
