The Mio Fuse will pair and transmit live hr data to the Forerunner 235 using ANT+ (AND to most any phone app using BLE, AND record hr on the Mio GO app simultaneously!) Use the watch’s settings menu, DEVICES & ACCESSORIES, then look for hr monitor. The Fuse will pair like any ANT+ hr chest strap, and anytime you are in “workout mode” on the Fuse, the Fuse transmits live hr to anything paired & connected via ANT+ or BLE.

Comment on 5 Random Things I Did This Weekend by Remco Verdoold https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2017/02/5-random-things-i-did-this-weekend-39.html#comment-1946475 Tue, 21 Feb 2017 06:45:28 +0000 https://www.dcrainmaker.com/?p=71268#comment-1946475 The tunnel is interesting, and I hope you will make a list of devices tested. In Amsterdam there is the DAM-loop which passes through a 1.2 km tunnel. That time my 910XT with footpod had no troubles doing the entrance and exit and distance in tunnel. Additionally this tunnel was not straight so the exit was not in line with entrance. That would be interesting to test too. (same for bikes, though easier). Will you?

Comment on 4iiii Precision Pro Dual Left/Right Power Meter In-Depth Review by davie https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2017/02/4iiii-precision-pro-leftright-review.html#comment-1946464 Tue, 21 Feb 2017 06:28:36 +0000 https://www.dcrainmaker.com/?p=71217#comment-1946464 In my local ride group and club, the vast majority of folks use shimano cranksets in Ultegra 10 and 11 speed with a few dura ace 9000 and 105 5800. They all run edge 500’s, 510, of 520 head units.

Most of these people would love a reasonably priced shimano compatible power meter but we are stuck between massive expense (SRM), compatability nightmares (Quarq bottom brackets, etc), difficulty with post purchase upgrades (pioneer upgrades only via head unit). Stages is left only with no plans to ever go dual.

There is a massive hole in the amateur market. Surely 4iii must know this.

Their left sides are already selling well and upgradeable to dual. If they release a dual for ultegra or 105, right side/dual, they will make pots of cash.

Comment on Tacx Flux Trainer In-Depth Review by Maxim https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2016/12/tacx-flux-trainer-depth-review.html#comment-1946416 Tue, 21 Feb 2017 05:13:38 +0000 https://www.dcrainmaker.com/?p=68533#comment-1946416 My brand new Flux just went back to Amazon.
Belt fell of in 15 minutes of Zwift’ing. To be honest, it was making weird sound from the very beginning, so I kind of expected that problem.
Damn, what do I do now, I really need a good trainer, but don’t want to sell a kidney…

(or maybe I missed your post)
But something seems wrong with the design as the flywheel is tiny and other things seem off

Comment on Mio Fuse Activity Tracker and Optical HR Sensor In-Depth Review by Damon https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2014/12/fuse-depth-review.html#comment-1946367 Tue, 21 Feb 2017 04:09:40 +0000 http://www.dcrainmaker.com/?p=40641#comment-1946367 Would it be possible to use the Mio Fuse for running simultaneously with a forerunner 235? I’m finding the 235 to be highly inaccurate of late. If you disabled the optical sensor on the 235 would it be possible for the fuse to replace it if paired with the forerunner? I don’t know how to do this though. Thanks for any replies
