Okey doke, happy Sunday! Here’s a quickie of a post for you. Albeit, not a quick video. But that’s alright, quality over quantity. Or something like that.
As you may remember, DesFit was over here for the DCR Open House earlier this month, and last weekend we filmed this video chat-through of some 19 watches of 2019. If it came out in 2019 and was geared towards sports – we probably covered it here.
From Apple to Garmin, Suunto to Polar, COROS to Samsung, Fitbit and more. We emptied out the watch bins that Des himself so carefully had taped up for the open house (it’s his official job, he’s really good at it).
We give our thoughts on all of them, ordered by release date from earlier this year in January to now. What worked? What didn’t? What’s a work in progress? We talk about all that goodness and plenty more in this video. It can be watched as a video, or you can also just put it on in the background kinda like a podcast. Though there’s plenty of b-roll goodness to note miss out on!
With that – I return you to your Sunday. So far mine has included time at the DCR Cave with toddlers and friends fighting over the kids smart bike, pedaling around town in the cargo bike singing wheels on the bus…and then looming this afternoon a children’s birthday party at a giant indoor play park. Hopefully later this evening I’ll finally get my own bike ride in. I’m actually feeling kinda Peloton-app like today. We’ll see.
Have a good remainder of your weekend – and thanks for watching!

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?
