They have stores in London so might be worth checking, not sure if its just online.

Comment on Hands-on with Garmin’s new Edge 820 with mapping by Jeremy http://www.dcrainmaker.com/2016/07/garmin-edge-820.html#comment-1624016 Wed, 27 Jul 2016 12:58:42 +0000 http://www.dcrainmaker.com/?p=62356#comment-1624016 @DC Rainmaker

I’ve connected with Stages and Garmin about it, but basically, it’s experiencing very frequent drop offs and delays (5 sec or more, when it is reading). I’ve enabled/disabled wifi, bluetooth, used screens with fewer data points, and even held the unit a foot or two away from the crank (in line of sight) – none of those things show any changes in looking at my Strava charts.

I’m hoping that it’s something that software/firmware can fix, but my 520 was solid, with no dropoffs with no changes to the location of the up front mount so I just assumed the 820 would be the same. :-)

Maybe I just got a bad unit if others aren’t finding the same – waiting to hear back from Garmin on their thoughts.

Comment on Withings Body & Body Cardio WiFi Weight Scales In-Depth Review by DC Rainmaker http://www.dcrainmaker.com/2016/07/withings-body-cardio-wifi-weight-scale-in-depth-review.html#comment-1624015 Wed, 27 Jul 2016 12:58:12 +0000 http://www.dcrainmaker.com/?p=62836#comment-1624015 Ahh…scratch that, I think I know what’s going on. It’s actually pulling the RHR data from the Aura. It had tricked me since some days I wasn’t at home…but The Girl was, so it pulled her RHR data instead. :-/

I have a vivosmart HR, my heart data is correctly in apple healt.
I’m trying to do it but I can’t. the only thing my iPhone let me do is sync withings to apple healt, not the other way…
is it because I have the Body (non-Cardio) version of the scale? what I’m missing?!?

thanks!

It’s odd a few folks are seeing touch screen issues, but others aren’t. Not really sure why. As noted above, I do have a pre-prod unit, but I believe Garmin shipped me a prod unit yesterday, which should arrive here Monday next week.

Hopefully that’ll fix my map slowness issues (which is about the only thing I’ve had trouble with to date).

They replied that they’re aware of the problem but no timeframe to fix?
