Fitting was nice and easy as it uses cable ties. These are not great because no matter how you try you can not get them completely tight but I put mine on my handlebar stem and it stays in place. The sticky bad they give you helps a bit.
The cable ties on the detector on the fork again don't fully tighten but I have had mine on for 2 weeks now, mainly road and cycle track riding (including bumping over tree roots) and it has stayed in place.
No light so you can't see it in the dark. And you can only see current speed and 1 other measure but the button is easy to press even with gloves on so you can switch between the readings if you want. I tend to leave mine on average speed or distance.
I have only had one incident of interference when the readings just started to show silly values but it only lasted a few seconds. I assumed I was passing a house that generated a lot of radio noise in the relevant band. I have LED lights and these do not interfere.
This is my first device since trying to get back into cycling and overall it has done what I want.
Cheaper online than in store which is really stupid. I stood in the store and ordered mine on my phone for collection at that store.
Only major con is the release clip in impossible to use so you can not practically remove it from the bike, but I doubt a thief can either
I recommend this product!
I like:easy to fit, display easy to read
I don't like as much:no light so can't see in dark, cable ties rather than screw up bracket, release clip unusable

Wireless range?

How far can the cycle computer be set away from the magnet and pickup?

It's not being used on a bicycle so I would be interested to know the full distance before the signal cannot be received by the computer.
The instructions say 5mm and I it certainly doesn't work at 12mm
