A week in: Triathlon, Tri Gadgets & Related Tech

Vitality Hackney Half Marathon 2015

Vitality Hackney Half Marathon 2015 – Click For PB Details 😉

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]

MOTO 360 Sport

MOTO 360 Sport

  1.  MOTO 360 Sport (from Motorolla) now on sale. Looks nice. Has the word ‘sport’ in it. So here it is (above).
  2. Joe Friel did an interesting article on TSB. If you don’t know what it is, you should 🙂 At least if you are training for an endurance event.
  3. 4iiii wrote a bit more about some of the new metrics coming from their PRECISION power meters.
  4. Lots of new stuff from Polar: Flow/Android Update; M400 T+Recovery stats in Flow; and some updates to Loop.
  5. On a Polar M400 note, 220 Triathlon voted the M400 as their runner’s watch of the year. They also looked favourably upon the Epson and TomTom. I was going to bemoan their lack of racial/sexual diversity on their 2016 calendar but now I won’t as their watch recommendations broadly agreed with me 🙂 I’m fickle that way. But hey c’mon guys non-white people and women do triathlon more than your photos suggest.
  6. Garmin announce extended running dynamics will be added to the Fenix3 and 920XT … yeah !! but not the other physiology stuff … boo !!
  7. Triathlete Rfy made $1m in a recent race. I think we should all train more.
  8. SportTracks announce a completed re-write of their MOBI’s Analysis functions.  A post so big they had to make it several posts to cover all the super new stuff.

Our Stuff.

A selection of stuff from the5krunner’s week – normally ranges from ‘not very interesting’ to ‘quite interesting’. I remind you that the BBC made a successful series out of the latter.

    • I think the m400 was good and is now very good with the new firmware etc etc. the only real prob with it is the dodgy usb connection. so upload over Bluetooth (it charges by usb fine)…IMO 🙂
