So I’ve been uncharacteristically quiet on this one. It appeared some time last week. I was busy travelling with work and wanted time to think so I pretended it wasn’t there. I’m still not sure what it’s going to be. There’s very little in the description on this one to go on. It has a… Read Article →

Below is the information from Polar (copied verbatim!) from The Polar Site. I’ve installed this without issue on my watch and everything seems to be working. This is a huge step forwards for the Vantage and adds most of the missing functionality to make it work in most normal training scenarios. Although I think Polar… Read Article →

There are a few bits of news around Garmin this month, They have finally released a dual Ant+ BTLE heart rate strap as mentioned on this site previously. It’s the basic one so don’t get too excited, but expect to see run and tri versions soon. As we also predicted there’s a watch with LTE… 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 →

Looks like Garmin will release some new toys for us at CES this year. Firstly, thew watch we knew about previously has a name. It’s the…Vivoactive 3 Music. It does now have Verizon connectitity though (so I assume USA only for now). Manual available at https://fccid.io/IPH-A3405/Users-Manual/User-Manual-2-4127198 Next, it looks like we also have a new… Read Article →

I bet you didn’t think you’d see a post about Ant+ vs Bluetooth going into 2019! But nevertheless here we are. This is a topic that bugs me any time I see it in a forum or comment section. On the one hand you have supporters of Ant+ who have been quietly using sensors for… Read Article →

Just kidding, that’s lawyer bait. The title I was gonna go with is “Reflecting on 2018” but sometimes you have to draw attention to things. All now resolved and hopefully Peloton have worked out how the Internet works, and for that matter how language works. By the way, I’m trademarking the words “Infringing” and “infringed”… Read Article →

Nothing that warrants a full post at the moment, although I do have a few in the works coming soon. The recent Polar firmware seems to be an improvement. The intervals function is weird to use but I guess that’s just an interface decision I don’t agree with. Others may like setting up their intervals… Read Article →
