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.
A huge thanks to all that participated in Friday’s Giveaway Extravaganza, it was certainly pretty crazy around these parts! At some points the entries were coming in at one per second, that’s just nuts! Overall, you clocked in nearly 50,000 page views within the 24 hour period. Go big or go home!
For all contests (unless otherwise noted below), I only counted entries that made the cutoff.
With that, let’s dive into the awards presentation!
Sorry about the issues on this. While I had all the entries set to automatically open, I have to manually close them. And unfortunately, when I woke up each time to Tweet/Close the entries in the middle of the night, I closed the wrong one. Thanks to all that caught it, this was extended to makeup for it, and I accepted all entries on the post (including those later), plus those that e-mailed or Facebook’d me about this specifically, hence why the entry number is higher than the comment posted number.
My In-Depth Product Review:Polar RCX3 Product Source: Polar, used in product review (both look new, with new batteries) Entries: 958 (on post) + 21 (Facebook/e-mail) = 979
RCX3 Winner #1: #175 – Tom
RCX3 Winner #2: #379 – Krazi
Remember, there were two winners on this one. The first one below gets their choice of the two units, with the second person getting the other one.
Again, thanks to everyone to jumped in and entered! For those that won, please e-mail me your information to ship to. Any winners not claimed by the end of next Friday will be given away to another random winner. Though, I’ll make every effort to find the person who won.
And as always, thanks for your support of the site – it’s what makes things like this possible.
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.
