*INCOMING NEW* Garmin 955, 745, LTE, SOLAR, Fenix 6 Sport and more

Sorry folks. I’m going to have to spoil all your gadget excitement for 2020. Normally this stuff drips out in dribs and drabs but this time we probably have a good chunk of 2020 in one fell swoop. There are some surprises here but I think it’s mostly correct. Have a look and see what…

Fitbit Fit OS 4.1 and Wahoo new Firmware

Let’s do the easy one first. Wahoo has cocked a snook at STRAVA by enabling support for your rides on the RELIVE.cc platform. Don’t forget that STRAVA recently removed the ability for RELIVE to link directly to your STRAVA workouts in somewhat mysterious circumstances, although STRAVA users can, instead, use AYVRI which is a similar…

945 Update, STRYD Update

This arrived today (image to right) and I’m not entirely sure what the updates are to my 945 sensor hub and BLE/BL/ANT+. I’m aware that the 945 doesn’t always find paired devices properly, maybe it fixes that? It wasn’t broken on the 935 yet Garmin seems to have to repeatedly fix this for the 945.…

new Coros Performance Pod – First Runs

Coros Performance Pod Coros is a recent entrant to the sports watch market and have made a good impression with impressive sports, outdoors, fitness and multi-sport watches.

STRAVA Art

STRAVA Art This is a post to celebrate the ONGOING life and STRAVA art of Anthony Hoyte, one of the UK’s most prolific STRAVARTISTs. I used the word ‘ONGOING’ as otherwise it sounded a bit like he’s dead but HE IS DEFINITELY ALIVE and pedalling and he sent me an email the other day to…

STRAVA and their privacy policy

STRAVA has today very clearly confirmed its privacy policy. Whilst I take a swipe at STRAVA from time-to-time, and whilst many of you bemoan STRAVA’s perceived lack of innovation for paying summit members, I hope we can all applaud STRAVA for their newly announced clarity on this issue. If you look at the bullet-pointed summary,…

Announcement Tuesday ???

There are some minor announcements from me later on today (UK time). Something that only the keenest gadgetphiles amongst you will be pressing the refresh button for.

*INCOMING* New Firstbeat Features x3

Let’s start off NOT interesting and then get interesting towards the end. The Xiaomi Mi Watch was announced a day or so ago. It starts at around $185 which is fairly interesting considering it’s an Apple Watch wannabe, with many similarities in looks. But, hey, China’s goodish at tech rather than original design. Let’s forget…
