  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 →

Introduction Now see the Vantage version of this post! 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… Read Article →

Introduction In this post we’ll follow on from part two where I discussed how Suunto does it and part one where I discussed the whole background of structured training. This time we’re looking at the Garmin platform. As mentioned previously I used a Fenix 5/Forerunner 935, Spartan Trainer Wrist HR, and a Polar M430 for… Read Article →

I’m going to leave the below on the site. While on my flight I eventually found the workout menu and it does have ad hoc workouts. The fact that it took me several hours to find though? Still a fail. I even consulted the manual before my rant and it didn’t really help as it… Read Article →
