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]
- 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.
- 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).
- 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.
- 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.
- Polar announce the ability for Polar Pro Trainer Customers to finally be able to export their data and start using it in Flow.
- 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.
Our Stuff – STILL Waiting for some interesting new arrivals from Polar, Wahoo and others.
A selection of stuff from the5krunner’s week – normally ranges from ‘not very interesting’ to ‘quite interesting’.
- A 1 minute review of the Lezyne Super GPS – Cycling Computer. Summary: Nice!.
- A 1 minute review of the Garmin 630. Looks great. Expensive. Could do with even more features for the money they are charging.
- A 1 minute review of some Lizard bar tape. Well; someone had to do it.
- I discovered a new STRYD-like company POWER RUNNING called SHFT. Worth watching.
- And also a new tapiriik-like app called syncmytracks (see also fitnesssyncer.com).
- I’m still not sure about this LIMITS power meter situation. I’ve heard there IS really a product. I’ve heard lots of things tho. Has DCR made the right call? Are LIMITs genuine? Will they get the extra funding they are looking for? Tricky.
