Hi all, sorry to say it but I’ve decided to close the site. I’ve not had the time to update it for a while, and needed the SSL certificate for another project (it wasn’t worth paying for a second one!) which is why the site has been down for a while – sorry but when… Read Article →

I know, it’s been a while. There is loads of news around Garmin this month, the short version is DON’T BUY ANY GARMIN STUFF UNTIL SEPTEMBER. There are a lot of new devices coming along so only buy if you get a good deal or are happy with stable, older stuff. We’re likely to see… Read Article →

Thanks to reader Buddy for these images of the upcoming Fenix 6. As you can see everything looks pretty much as expected (an updated 5!). I would expect this to share all of the features of the Forerunner 945. Sorry all, I’ve removed the images. This was at the request of the reader who sent… Read Article →

Something has appeared at https://fccid.io/IPH-03716/External-Photos/External-Photos-4330211 which looks like a bluetooth versioon of the RD Pod, Garmin’s running dynamics pod. This new gadget certainly has BTLE from the description, but it appears to also have a button. I guess this could be to start/stop recording if the device has memory like the recent bike sensors.

Also a great big thank you to all of the individual people who sponsored me and the… Read Article →

You’ve probably worked out by now that I’m a cyclist so it’s no surprise that I’m using my charity days at work to complete a cycle ride from London to Amsterdam. https://mytime.benevity.org/community/fundraiser/view/56… Read Article →

For those that have not noticed, I work for a large technology company. As a part of my role I need to demo various things, including Internet of Things things. Since I didn’t have any “things” to hand, I needed to either buy or create one. As anyone in the IoT space will tell you,… Read Article →

No new devices from Suunto right now but they have announced an API for third party integration. I signed up to this but have received literally no communications back so I’m not 100% sure the API actually exists. It’s a good direction though so hopefully we’ll see them actually launch and open the API soon…. Read Article →

There is loads of news around Garmin this month. They have released the Edge 830 and Edge 530 earlier than expected, likely due to the devices being similar to the Edge 1030. Lots of new goodies in them though. Also some new sensors with dual BTLE and Ant+ which suggests GArmin will do this to… Read Article →

Thanks to my readers I have now removed the stupid new editor in WordPress. I’d still like to say a big “screw you” to the team who created that steaming pile of shite but I may keep on trucking with the blog for now since I have the good old editor back. If you work… Read Article →
