RunScribe – A New Direction

Running With Power 2019 – Will there be an ANT+ Standard ?

I’ve been getting very excited with myself recently. I had pretty much convinced myself into believing that an ANT+ Running With Power Standard would be announced at 1:03pm on Friday 15th March 2019. Then I took a step back and thought I’d better check my facts. That’s always a time-consuming annoyance when it comes to…

New RunScribe Plus Hardware Iteration

I’ve recently received a new, modified version of RunScribe Plus pods. They look identical to the originally released V3 pods and indeed still show up as a V3 pod on the RunScribe app. However the main hardware ‘fix’ is with the signal strength. Garmin were VERY naughty when they released the Fenix 5 and 5S…

Gadgets I’m Using Right Now

Here are most of the gadgets I’ve been using for me over the last month or so. I’m not sure they are my ‘favourite’ ones per se but I’m using them ‘properly’ for meaningful training stuff rather than just trying to break them or seeing if the GPS is accurate or not. There is nothing…

Garmin Running Power :: Garbage In…Garbage Out?

I quite like the Garmin Running Power app. It installs well, is nicely configurable and seems to run awesomely in all its bug free glory. But is it showing complete garbage? I had a little play on Sunday, comparing Garmin Running Power (GRP) with RunScribe and STRYD. Here are the thoughts and results of that…

ANT+ Signal Boosting

Following on from modding my RunScribe I am working up some MoJo before I hit the track. Part of that process involves wasting a considerable amount of time looking at forums and discovering tidbits like this: This raised a few things in my mind RunScribe can effectively boost the signal by changing the Message Rate…cool!…
