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 →

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 →

I promise I’ll update the monthlies this weekend! I’m currently on hols again relaxing in Lanzarote. Well, not relaxing so much as putting in hours of pool time, miles of cycling and a little bit of running. A couple of times I had a whole Olympic pool to myself too. Not just a lane, a… 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 →
