New STRYD Zones

STRYD Zones The STRYD Zones CIQ Data Field is a nice, new and welcomed addition to the STRYD ecosystem – I guess we can call it that now. The new STRYD Zones CIQ data field also builds on the auto-Critical Power announcement from last week and the new STRYD Pod v4 announcement from the week…

Garmin Forerunner 945 Review

Garmin Forerunner 945 – What’s Missing? Forerunner 955 / Fenix 6 anyone?

Garmin Forerunner 945 – What’s Missing? Garmin has just released their Forerunner 945 tri watch and the probably-internally-identical MARQ ATHLETE should be able to be bought around about now too. The feature-improvements over the 935 are many and varied but most fall under the ‘additional smarts’ and ‘peripheral niceties’ categories…which is not to knock them.…

Garmin Forerunner 245 Review

Two Reviews this week hopefully

There are two sports watch reviews to come this week (hopefully). I’m pretty sure that one watch is the same as a review that DCR will release at the same time. And I’m pretty sure that the other one won’t be covered by him – not a Garmin and not an announcement ie already released,…

Garmin Edge 530 – Gripes So Far

The new Garmin Edge 530 is a sensibly-priced, feature-packed GPS bike computer by Garmin – you knew that. HEADS UP: Garmin Edge 530 Review – In Detail Warts and all Generally, I like it a lot so far and I would still stick by some of my earlier comments that it is the benchmark, performance…

Garmin Forerunner 945 – Gripes so far

I’m probably going to end up loving the 945 but in the pursuit of balance here are the things that have mildly annoyed me so far. LATEST: Garmin Forerunner 945 Review Gripes (edit: some updates 24Jun) It took a long while to setup but that was more due to the fact there are more features…

Suunto product users should already have received notifications about further clarifications to the recently announced closure of the MOVESCOUNT app, as Suunto transition to their Suunto app. Source: Suunto.com It’s been clear that throughout Q1.2019 Suunto have been significantly beefing up the Suunto app. My experience with it on Android seems to indicate that it’s…

Half a million – Thank you…it’s been a blast

Thank you everyone I’ve just hit 500,000 page views for the first time ever in a single month. Hopefully you’ve enjoyed reading the ‘stuff’ as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it. ‘ Views’ are proper page impressions and the term ‘hits’ is different which, for example, would include technical reads by bots such as Google.…

Garmin Forerunner 45

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…

Garmin 945 Imminent

I’ve done some more digging after last week’s post on the imminent Forerunner 245 and 245 Music. The two 245 product releases are a near certainty, just take that as being correct and focus on some even more exciting news. There is evidence that I have seen which shows that the Garmin Forerunner 945 is…

Polar adds ANT+ Support

I never thought I would write this but here goes… Polar adds ANT+ Support     I should probably write something insightful but the phrase ” TA DA! ” springs to mind instead. There are probably lots of sports people, who use the odd gadget or two, who have no idea what that means. But…

Garmin MARQ – new LIVE EVENT SHARING

The Garmin MARQ has a new feature called LIVE EVENT SHARING squirrelled away in the specs. This post will be speculation on what that new feature is. LIVE EVENT SHARING could be super interesting…or a damp squib. Let’s see. This is almost certainly NOT the features we already have on the Fenix ie it’s not…
