Fitbit Fit OS 4.1 and Wahoo new Firmware

Garmin – IMPRESSIVE Q3 sales figures.

Garmin’s shares have jumped about 5% on news of a great last quarter performance. Obviously here we are only interested in the sport/fitness/outdoors part of Garmin but that did very well too. First up, a share price jump like this really does show that Garmin exceeded analysts’ expectations and it does not represent a jump…

Suunto 9 gets Firstbeat

Some great news for Suunto 9 owners. There should be a firmware release (v2.9.42) around about NOW which adds some sweet new features to the Suunto 9, I’m pretty certain it will be the same for BARO and non-BARO versions alike. The Suunto 9 is, strangely, playing catch up with the Firstbeat features that are…

STRAVA Fitness – New App Feature, New RPE Feature

STRAVA Fitness – now on the app STRAVA very recently further rolled out their FITNESS feature on the app. It looks nicely implemented but, apart from one nuance, STRAVA Fitness looks to provide similar information to that found in many other platforms.

STRAVA App – removes BLE sensor support

Now, THIS NEWS is going to annoy some people BIG TIME. For the rest of us, indeed most of us, we won’t even notice the difference.
