Like last year, I’ll be making a quick trip to the Consumer Electronics Show – which is pretty much the super bowl of consumer electronics. The show is held annually in Las Vegas, usually on the first full non-holiday week of January. This year, I’ll be spending Tuesday (first full day of the show) there, checking things. Here’s a quick link to all the CES posts from last year.
Within the endurance sports world, I don’t expect to see too many major new product announcements. A few perhaps, but not the wide number of sport-specific announcements that we’d see at a endurance-sport specific show like Eurobike or Interbike.
Instead, we’ll likely see more health and fitness focused announcements and products. Meaning, products like scales, fitness trackers, and other non-high end performance devices.
That’s not to say we won’t see some good stuff. Many of the companies that announced products back at Eurobike and Interbike will be there, this time with the final goods. Companies like Wahoo Fitness and MyBasis for example. Also, expect to see some companies that had planned to make announcements at Eurobike/Interbike but deferred those announcements, do so at CES instead.
I’ll be tweeting my way throughout my time there, and will likely save writing of CES related posts until the end of Tuesday, so that I can cram as much as possible into the hours I have on the show floor (my afternoon is nearly booked already!).
So with that, what companies should I be checking out?
What products do you want to hear more about?
Obviously, my focus will primarily be on health/fitness/sport, as the big players like Engadget and Gizmodo pretty well cover things such as TV’s and the like.
As always, thanks for reading!
(P.S.- If you’re a company at CES and have something cool to see relevant to readers here, drop me a note via the contact form and I’ll do my best to check ya out. As always, if I don’t know about ya, it’s hard to talk about ya. So don’t be shy.)
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 2019 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.
