Heads up! Massive Sale on Garmin, Suunto, Polar, Trainers and more! There’s two huge sales going on – first is a major Garmin sale, including $100 off new Forerunner 945 and $150 off the Fenix 5 Plus. Along with the Varia Radar, Garmin Edge 130 & 1030, and plenty more.
Plus there’s the big semi-annual 20% off sale, with virtually all major trainers and power meters included. Wahoo KICKR’s, Tacx NEO’s, Elite Direto’s and Suito’s, Saris H3, Kinetic, R1 4iiii Fliiiight, Stages, and many more. Not to mention the GPS units from Garmin, Polar, COROS, Lezyne, Suunto, Apple and others.
I’ve long since wondered what to do with all the random tidbits of things I collect each week – or the little thoughts that don’t quite make for a full post. But I finally came up with a solution: The Week in Review Post. This takes the place of my Weekly Mailbag – which is over on Slowtwitch. These are just quick snippets of things that I’ve found interesting. Nice and easy Saturday reading. Plus, a recap of my Weekly Mailbag post a well.
So with that, let’s get into the action!
Weekly Mailbag Over at Slowtwitch.com: This past week wasn’t too good for me as I was either sick or working (somehow being sick doesn’t preclude working), so Slowtwitch will return next week.
#2) Remember to set your Tivo for Kona! Yup, mark your calendar with December 18th – as that’s the date that the 2010 Kona Ironman World Championships will be on TV. Just keep in mind while watching that while the event is produced by NBC, the timeslot is paid for akin to how an infomercial is paid for. I still enjoy it though.
This release adds a crapton of features (that’s what we call it in the software biz – a crapton). While Golden Cheetah is primarily targeted at cyclists, the free fitness data tracking program also works well for triathletes. Here’s a list of everything added in 2.0:
New Features Aerolab View ride in Google Maps Long Term Metrics User configurable ride metadata Ride editor and tools HR Zones and TRIMP Metrics Twitter support
Internationalization Updates to French translation Japanese translation
New Devices and File Formats Supported Support for Joule BIN File Format Tacx CAF Ride File Format Support Garmin FIT ride file support Export to Google Earth 5.2 KML Training Peaks PWX ride file support Polar SRD ride file support Racermate CompCS/Ergvideo .TXT ride file support
Woah! I’m exhausted just typing all that out!
(Ok, I didn’t type it…I copied/pasted…I’m lazy that way)
I’ll probably put together an overview post at some point in the semi-near future showing of some of the cooler features.
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.
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.
The most common question I receive outside of the “what’s the best GPS watch for me” variant, are photography-esq based. So in efforts to combat the amount of emails I need to sort through on a daily basis, I’ve complied this “My Photography Gear” post for your curious minds! It’s a nice break from the day to day sports-tech talk, and I hope you get something out of it!
Many readers stumble into my website in search of information on the latest and greatest sports tech products. But at the end of the day, you might just be wondering “What does Ray use when not testing new products?”. So here is the most up to date list of products I like and fit the bill for me and my training needs best! DC Rainmaker 2018 swim, bike, run, and general gear list. But wait, are you a female and feel like these things might not apply to you? If that’s the case (but certainly not saying my choices aren’t good for women), and you just want to see a different gear junkies “picks”, check out The Girl’s 2018 Gear Guide too.
