Giveaway Extravaganza: GoPro Hero4 Silver

So perhaps you didn’t win that 360° action cam earlier today (some 20 hours ago!).  Maybe it was because you were lazy and asleep, or perhaps because you were afraid of broadcasting your inevitable crash into a tree from every possible angle.  No worries, whatever your excuse you have a …

Giveaway Extravaganza: Withings Body Cardio Scale & Activité Pop

You can never weigh yourself too many times, or with too many devices.  After all, that’s how I somehow got more than a dozen scales right now.  However, none of those scales have Pulse Wave Velocity like the Withings Body Cardio does, which is like the most Space Balls thing …

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!


Understand technology and sport in the How-To Guides.

I enjoy explaining new things to folks – especially showing people how to get the most from their gadgets. Here’s an ongoing list of “How to” guides.


Read my Top 25 most useful posts.

It turns out I’ve written a fair bit of stuff over the past few years – and after it disappears from my front page, a lot of it never really sees the light of day again without Google’ing skillz.  Or a photographic memory…which I don’t have.  I’ve taken a look back and found stuff that…continues to find a trickle of readers via web searches or forum links.


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.
