The Because It’s Friday $500 Sports Gadget Giveaway Results/Winner!


Last week I held the “Because it’s Friday $500 Gadget Giveaway”.  It was an opportunity for 6,044 of you to express your love of Friday, or sports tech gadgetry in general. Or, just a chance to win some good ol’ fashioned free stuff!

As is usually the case, I hopped over to my lovely friend,, and stuck in the total number of entries:


Then it was back to the post to find #718:


Congrats Dawar!  You’re the winner of $500 bucks of gadget awesomeness, which it sounds like you’ll put towards a Theragun G3Pro. I think this is actually the first time someone has ever selected a Theragun, or any sort of recovery type device. I suppose not a lot of people realize that Clever Training stocks a bunch of different recovery units (even NormaTec), it’s just not something I tend to cover.

As for everyone else?  Well, you can still go buy some gadget love for yourself from Clever Training, and you’ll still save 10% via cash or points on basically everything they sell, unless it’s already on some sort of big sale.  From GPS watches to trainers to power meters, and even gel packets. Underwear and recovery devices too.  And for those in Europe, you could also simply use Clever Training Europe which includes free Europe shipping on many items plus the usual DCR 10% savings.  Thanks to them for the giveaway, and everyone for the support!

Oh, and welcome to summer!
