Hands-on with the new Garmin Vivomove watch

The Garmin Vivo empire is expanding.  This time though, in a way unlike any other Garmin product.  It actually looks pretty.  Swanky perhaps. Sure, there are other Vivo wrist bands you can buy that look great on women (The Girl often wears a metal band for her Vivofit).  But those …

In Depth Product Reviews

You probably stumbled upon here looking for a review of a sports gadget.  If you’re trying to decide which unit to buy – check out my in-depth reviews section.  Some reviews are over 60 pages long when printed out, with hundreds of photos!  I aim to leave no stone unturned.


Read My GPS Recommendations.

Here’s my most recent gadget recommendations guide (Winter 2015-2016 edition) – covering almost every category of sports gadgets out there.  Looking for the equipment I use day to day?  I also just put together my complete 2015 ‘Gear I Use’ equipment list, from swim to bike to run and everything in between (plus a few extra things).  And to compliment that, here’s The Girl’s (my wife’s) 2015 list. Enjoy, and thanks for stopping by!

Have some fun in the travel section.

I travel a fair bit, both for work and for fun. Here’s a bunch of random trip reports and daily trip-logs that I’ve put together and posted. I’ve sorted it all by world geography, in an attempt to make it easy to figure out where I’ve been.
