September – New Products – Getting the info out there differently this time

Fitbit Surge Polar Garmin Epson

Blasts from the past

There ‘might’ be some announcements this month. Or not, who knows 😉

For a change, this month I will try to auto-schedule new content and info like that on my Instagram feed. The Instagram feed always contains different content to this blog – usually an existing but cropped image and some original text (with the obligatory hashtags).

Although if there are any new watches then I might post some of the imagery for a hands-on/review FIRST on Instagram. Let’s see how it pans out

The latest Instagram post is shown below and you can click-through and follow … if you like.

Great running with music combo with the Audio Technica ATH-SPORT 70BT and the Amazfit STRATOS What is unusual, in my experience, is having the controls/aerial on the left side and this meant I was able to keep my watch on my usual left wrist without experiencing audio dropouts – that’s a ‘simple’ design decision that makes a big positive difference to many sportspeople who use an audio source on their left wrist or left arm (most of us). The audio quality is good. Or at least I thought so, and especially so with smartphone playback. By far the main reason to buy the BT70 rather than the cheaper BT50 is the audio quality – as most of the other features are identical on those two models. If audio quality is not so important to you then you might as well save $/£/Eu50 and go for the older BT50 model. The ATH SPORT BT70 still comes out as a ‘buy’. #amazfit #amazfitstratos #Bluetooth #sports #headphones #wireless #AudioTechnica #running #music

Please don’t. Post it here too. With all the gentle reminders to become a supporter, I did. And now the news is you’ll post things first on instagram.

So, you clearly have the new Polar watch and are under an embargo, as I thought you had posted the leaked images (maybe you hadn’t?) but you always post that kind of stuff… which means you don’t want to mess up your relationship with them. Hopefully it meets/exceeds all expectations.

Completely unrelated question: if you someone was in the market for a high end running/triathlon watch and was thinking of purchasing today… would you tell them to hold off for a week or two?

POLAR to be released at the Berlin Marathon, I wonder if they will get one on the winners wrist, give them some kind of ad-vantage?
