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. 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 bike computer against which all others should be compared. However, it’s not…

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. Gripes It took a long while to setup but that was more due to the fact there are more features to setup. Setup is probably improved in reality over…

Movescount to Suunto App Migration Update

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 (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…

Garmin MARQ Opinion – The First Fenix 6? Specifications

Today marks the announcement of the Garmin MARQ which is a high-end Garmin Fenix device with premium construction and a few new components and features. The MARQ is a similarly positioned product as the Garmin Chronos from a few years back. The Chronos was a premium Fenix model too, except the price premium for the…

Fitbit – 4 new devices

Fitbit has launched 4 new devices including the Fitbit Versa Lite I discussed in more detail earlier today. The CEO also indicated that an Ionic 2 will come later in 2019. My ‘guess’ would be ‘just in time for Christmas’. In addition to the Versa Lite, there is also the Inspire, Inspire HR and Ace…

Fitbit Versa Lite Specifications & Opinion

The new Fitbit Versa Lite Specifications and features are similar to those of the existing non-Lite model and the key standout differences are the lower price tag associated with its lack of contactless payments and lack of music support. The Fitbit Versa, Versa Lite, Versa SE & Ionic represent Fitbit’s alternative to the Apple Watch…
