A week in: Triathlon, Tri Gadgets & Related Tech, is some of the more interesting bits that flash up on my screen during the week. It could be: some interesting article on triathlon training; a new activity tracker; a new swim watch; a race; or a reminder on a new bit of software or firmware for one of your devices.

Thank you to everyone who drops me a line with interesting titbits. There’s a huge amount of information out there that’s more than a few people can keep tabs of. [Catchup: Here is last week’s]

  1. The OXY watch is looking for backers for their ‘looks like a real watch’ smartwatch concept. Probably significantly cheaper than last week’s Tag Heuer. Well it is. Looks good too.
  2. Wahoo Fitness add call and text notification to the RFLKT+. Nice to see that innovative product still being improved. Kudos to Wahoo. I can’t find a link to that announcement as it came via email, here’s a link to a review of the RFLKT+ in case you don’t know what it is (it’s an iPhone bike thing).
  3. Fenix3 get advanced running dynamics but only with the HRM-RUN/HRM-TRI. Not clear if it is the new HRM4-RUN or the older one as well.
  4. 4iiii’s Precision, Viiiiva and Cliiiimb are all upgraded with new firmware plus the new app (ios/Android) is now ready for you to download. Lots of interesting stuff for example I would now class the Viiiiva HRM as market-leading sensitivity/accuracy with lots of bridging features and simple tap to pair (plus more) functionality. The Precision has some good battery life tweaks and more.
  5. Polar announce the ability for Polar Pro Trainer Customers to finally be able to export their data and start using it in Flow.
  6. There seemed to be lots of apps updated this week including: syncmytracks, TomTom MySports, Wahoo Fitness, 4iiii,RunKeeper, Google Fit, Garmin Connect and probably many more besides.
