Heads up! Massive Sale on Garmin, Wahoo, Tacx, 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, HR straps, sensors, and plenty more.
Plus there’s the big semi-annual 20% off sale, with 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. 20% off means you’re saving $200+ in most cases. Not to mention the GPS units from Garmin, Polar, COROS, Lezyne, Suunto, Apple and others.
Tomorrow (or today, depending on your locale) I’ll be doing a question and answer (Q&A) on Facebook Live. So bring all those saved up questions about sports tech goodness (or life in Paris, or whichever cupcake flavor is best) and I’ll be hanging around right in the DCR Cave to answer them!
It’ll be a fun test of some new camera technology by Mevo (here’s my unboxing video on it) that integrates with Facebook Live, so that’ll definitely be a (hopefully successful) part of it! Plus, if you’ve been missing your weekly dose of the DCR Podcast, this should help alleviate your anxiety until co-host Ben can return from his summer soul searching in an RV across America trip.
But more than tech Q&A – it should be fun. It’s possible there will be alcohol involved. I mean, it’s Happy Hour my time and all – and it’s summer on a Friday. Speaking of times, here’s the time zones:
Central European Time (That’s me!): 4PM (16:00) London and related Time: 3PM (15:00) US East Coast Time: 10AM US West Coast Time: 7AM Sydney Time: 2AM Saturday (sorry!) Dubai Time: 8PM (20:00)
Ok, everyone else can figure it out pretty easily from the above. Or, you can just follow along on Twitter, and I’ll tweet it out about 15 minutes prior. And of course, if you’re on Facebook following the DC Rainmaker Facebook page, you’ll get notified too – depending on your Facebook settings.
Finally, in theory you’ll be able to watch it right here! I should be able to embed it down below this section (Update: Or not…just click below). But just in case that doesn’t quite work, then hit up the Facebook page.
Update: Here’s the recording you can watch anytime!
If things are interesting enough to folks, perhaps we’ll make it a more regular occurrence. Oh…and maybe…just maybe…The Girl will make an appearance. We’ll see!
With that – see ya tomorrow!
P.S. – Since many of you during the broadcast asked about the camera, here’s the unboxing and detailed YouTube video I did on it:
(Note: You do NOT need a Facebook account to watch a Facebook Live broadcast, it’s a public/open URL.)
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.
