Lezyne Year 10+ – new firmware

  It was announced last week but Lezyne have just pushed new firmware for all their 2017-2019 devices. As you can see from the image above they have a sweet range of sizes now. Functionality between the devices is fairly similar, so it’s just the format and price that you mostly need to worry about.…

Polar OH1 and OH1+ get a firmware update

Both the older Polar OH1 and newer Polar OH1+ both have a firmware update. Older Polar OH1 users should now find that they have Garmin’s ANT+ compatability…#cool. Similarly you should be able to get ANT+ on your Polar H10 via the FLOW app or, soon, via the BEAT app.

Garmin Forerunner 945 Specs Leaked – Summary Level

Today’s leak is the summary features/specs for each of the new Forerunner models. Let’s start in this post with the 945. It’s all pretty much as expected, so don’t get too excited. But do get excited that I expect them to be announced imminently. My guess for a date is Tuesday 30th April at which…

Garmin Forerunner 45 (forty five) – First images

  Here we have yet ANOTHER new watch from Garmin. This time it is the low-end Forerunner 45 (forty five). This is a greatly cut down 245 and will likely have no CIQ and a poorer screen resolution like the old 235. It looks clear that Garmin have abandoned the square/rectangular watch face format in…

SRAM Acquires PowerTap – Power Meter Times are changing

I was aware of some internal goings-on at PowerTap in recent months and I was wondering only two days ago who was going to buy them. Well, now we know it’s SRAM/Quarq. Source: https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2019/04/sram-acquires-powertap-what-it-means-for-both-brands-and-consumers.html It looks like the products that the customer sees will proceed in broadly the same direction with the same numbering. So…

Suunto S9 FusedTrack

SportsTracks 3- no more

Well. I have to say I’m hacked off about this. First it was Google Earth requiring payment from developers that meant my images on SportTracks had watermarks all over them – I did find a workaround that involved giving Google my credit card details. Then it was finally figuring out after two years that it…

New Final Surge Functionality

The training platform FINALSURGE today rolled out some interesting additions to their platform. The platform is interesting and I’m probably going to switch over to it for ‘certain things’ soon. For example, they provide some of the best support for Running Power workouts – although limited by Garmin’s current functionality. Before getting on to the…

Garmin NETFLIX CIQ and Montre Cardio sold too

It seems that the French-speaking world has taken ‘April Fools’ jokes to heart to leave us English-speaking Brits wallowing in boring, Brexit-induced befuddlement. Nakan.ch has a great post about Garmin’s NETFLIX CIQ app, with some great mocked up imagery. Whilst in other news … Motre Cardio GPS has apparently been bought out by Under Armor…
