STRYD on Samsung Gear / Sport / Watch

Attention all Samsung Watch Owners I came across this super-interesting 3rd party app last week which enables STRYD and other sports sensors to be supported on Samsung Tizen. So that means you could get STRYD to work on a Gear S2/S3/Sport, Galaxy Watch as well as Gear Fit2/Fit2 Pro. Here are a few screenshots and…

Spike & Trough Fixer – + other FIT stuff

Perhaps once a week, I use Fit File Repair Tool, to fix or convert a workout or fix a route file. Perhaps STRAVA won’t accept a certain GPX file or perhaps I want to convert a TCX file to a FIT file for some bizarre reason. Rarely I may also have a file corruption problem…

Wahoo TICKR FIT Accuracy and a mystery watch

Six of the engineers who were deeply…

FIT Repair Tools & Conversions- A Quick Look

Virtually everyone I know has had an occasional problem with a ‘broken’ fit file or some extra requirement such as the need to split/combine FIT files or even to exclude ‘obviously’ incorrect data. Relatively recent needs are for us to move all our historic data from one platform to another when we switch from one…

The Activity Tracker That I Bought

I confess to not OWNING an activity tracker myself. I get some sent on loan from vendors that I return. I don’t really need/want one and my gadget cupboard is full. I do have quite a few sports watches and some of them have activity tracking functionality in them (which I don’t use). I confess to…
