Introduction In this post we’ll follow on from part three where I discussed how Garmin does it, part two where I looked at Suunto and part one where I discussed the whole background of structured training. This time we’re looking at the Polar platform. As mentioned previously I used a Fenix 5/Forerunner 935, Spartan Trainer… Read Article →

In this post we’ll follow on from part one where I discussed what structured training is. This time we’re looking at the platform implementations of this functionality. I used a Fenix 5/Forerunner 935, Spartan Trainer Wrist HR, and a Polar M430 for these posts. I believe all platforms are now relatively similar between models which… Read Article →

Overview I may have mentioned a couple of times recently that I bought a new watch. Twice. I did this for you, dear readers, in an effort to balance the books and get you some useful content to go alongside the usual rumour mill. My hope is that this will guide you in understanding why… Read Article →

There are a few bits of news around Garmin this month, but nothing I’d consider major. They have registered a new trademark “Marq” which is listed as being a watch. The term Marq(ue) may suggest something high end. trademark link here. A subsequently removed forum post suggests that there will be an analog version as… Read Article →
