A Race Success – For Once

I’m feeling a little smug. For once I did a little bit better on my A race than I had hoped for, both in terms of time and position. It was a ‘lesser event’ with limited competition but a medal is a medal and it’s not my fault the really good guys didn’t turn up…

Alps 2018 – Gadgets On Tour

I’ve been quiet here recently. Partly because of other work and partly because of a family trip to the Alps. My proper France bike trip is in a few weeks. So the Alps Trip was to test out my bike setup, eat some cheese and start tapering for my A race. As we all know…

Garmin Fenix 5S Plus Review

Where is the Garmin Forerunner 945 ? Hopes For September

Garmin keep a keen eye on competitors’ prices. They also keep a keen eye on competitors’ product launches. I would imagine that their ‘Competitive Intelligence System’ scoops up the rumours and trade-chat of new products far better than I could ever hope to. Let’s speculate that there could be a new triathlon watch (or two)…

Running Power Garmin 935

Firmware updates galore

There seem to be a nice little spate of firmware hitting the interweb thingy around about now. Suunto 9 – is now on v2.1.54 (from 2.1.42).

Garmin 935 – Thoughts on Firmware 7.60

I have to admit that last week’s firmware update for the Forerunner 935 somewhat slipped me by. Sure it installed but I imagined that it was just some bug fix for a few peripheral features. But it wasn’t. OK fixes were in there too but we also got some interesting featurettes Firstly the rather enigmatic…

Garmin Forerunner 935 – too cheap?

I managed to get a ‘great deal’ on my second Garmin 935, with the price at the time coming in at GBP430, as shown below. That’s a low price for the UK but about the same as the US$499 current price on Amazon. But that price got me thinking (often a dangerous thing 😉 )…

Garmin 935 STRYD, STRYD Review, STRYD Power Meter, Footpod

Garmin 935: First Run With STRYD

My Polar V800 has been having too much fun recently now that is able to natively pair with STRYD Today it was the turn of the Garmin 935 to partner with the STRYD power footpod. Will it be a gadget match made in heaven or an acrimonious split up? The setup was a tortuous process. After 2 minutes I was ready to go. 2 whole…
