The Xiaomi-Huami Amazfit STRATOS 3 will soon be here. For those of you who missed out on the STRATOS 2, fear not.

Combine that with the pre-existing FORM power and these are…

Garmin Fenix 6X Pro – Leaked photos and speculation

New Xert Features

It’s no secret that I like Xert (pronounced EXERT). In a nutshell, it’s a novel way of looking at what power output you are capable of at any given instant; and that knowledge feeds through into many aspects of training from season planning, to workouts or to segment hunting. It works well in the Garmin…

New Favero ASSIOMA Body & Firmware v4.0

There is some fairly interesting news just announced by Favero about their ASSIOMA power meter pedals. The news comes on two fronts, firstly A NEW SHELL and, secondly, new DATA-METRICS. From a personal perspective, I’m more interested in the new pedal body than the new metrics but I’m pretty sure that there are a sizable…

  It looks like Garmin have finally decided to play catch up with the introduction of oHR for swimming with the current beta software for the 945 – Suunto and Polar already support oHR for swimming with the Vantage and spartan/post-spartan models respectively. I’m just about to head off for a race weekend so I’ve…

Bad news for relive.cc as STRAVA has just stopped Relive’s integration with their platform citing that it “violates several of the terms that we ask of API partners“.
