After doing lots of research and getting views on ww and reading a stack if reviews, I've decided on favero assioma duo powermeter pedals. What I can't seem to find is an ant+ or Bluetooth cycling computer that doesn't do gps nav. I really dont need this and want a computer that has long battery life, power, l/r power and cadence. Also it has to be light as I will be gaining 110 grams with the pedals! The closest I can see is the lightest polar model.

Bryton Rider 310 or 330-I've had the 310 for almost two years now and the battery life is outstanding.

the L/R power and cadence are just apps I believe, at least it is for the garmin 530.
My garmin is good, haven't paired it yet with my quarq, its only 4x7cm. screen is big enough if all you want is L/R power, cadence and maybe speed or time, more than 5 items gets a bit small.

The Bryton 310 looks like exactly what I am looking for. Had not seen these before and fits the bill perfectly

Also look into a Lezyne unit; they get great reviews.

If you hunt around you might also find a used Edge 500 for peanuts. I still use one. Turn the GPS off saves significant battery life. Someone also posted on these forums RE: an easy and cheap aftermarket battery replacement that will improve your battery life even further.

The only thing you won't get on a computer without GPS is gradient - I'm not aware of a unit that will give you that reading without GPS/GLONASS enabled.

The GPS gives you also the speed without having to use an additional sensor.

Another vote for bryton, you might want to look into the 330 or the bigger screen 530. Both have a rudimentary routing function, but also have what you are looking for. Plus, they are newer then the aforementioned 310.

I think Matt Clinton from cyclepowermeters has said bryton head units don't play well with the Assioma pedals.

As said above though, a used garmin 500 is the Nokia 3310 of the gps/power metrics world, although would i change back from my 820? Not a chance....
