My Sporting Software Mish-Mash as we say GOODBYE SPORTTRACKS DESKTOP

As SportTracks ST3.1 (desktop) reaches end-of-life I’m hoping that the plugins continue to work. If not I am stuffed.

Garmin HRM-PRO – soon

This is a page from garmin.com (google cache working link) for this product https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/digital/p/682155 (not working at garmin.com for now).
