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 →

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 →

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 →

  Somewhere out there, there are some gods laughing. I publicly admitted to trusting my Garmin and within days there’s a problem. Now, I’m not going to be too harsh on Garmin here. I have been in the past when they’ve neglected to test obvious stuff and then a failure occurs. This failure seems to… Read Article →

So here I am in Lanzarote trying to get some training in before xmas. It’s very nice here. Still the right temperature for training in shorts and t-shirt or summer cycling gear. The outdoor Olympic pools even let me get a speedo shaped tan line while swimming. You get the idea; I’m in my happy… Read Article →

OK so I feel a little bad posting this, and apologise directly to Doug B at Garmin who will probably not enjoy this post (the below words are his). This is kind of the purpose of the site though, and I personally think it will do them more good than harm generating a bit of… Read Article →

Looks like Garmin have been cooking something up and are almost ready to launch. This report suggests it will have built in LTE networking and so could be the Garmin Marq we mentioned previously It also has NFC (Wrist payment) and Bluetooth as expected. It doesn’t seem to have Ant+ transmission so possibly doesn’t have… Read Article →

Please note that I didn’t put any effort into getting the screens represented as lifelike in this post so colour saturation is mainly down to the camera not the screens. All three look a little washed out in real life, even in the bright evening sunshine shown here. That said, the Vantage seems a bit… Read Article →

Oh no! I took some watches for a bit of a run this evening since I was staying in a hotel in town, and one of those was the new Vantage V. Now, admittedly I did put it through a lot of stress at the start of the run. My Garmin Forerunner 935 spotted the… Read Article →
