  3. Today Garmin raised the stakes and announced their most expensive watch to date – the Garmin MARQ, at upwards of $2,500. Actually, it’s five watches. Five different units that mirror Garmin’s existing product lines across all of the company’s divisions. https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2019/03/garmin-marq-series-detailed-overview-hands-on.html

  5. Has anyone ever seen / heard / used or have an Xiaomi AMAZFIT Smart Watch Any opinions would be appreciated. I would love to buy a Garmin Fenix 3 or 5 - But they are just something I cannot afford. That's why I am look at alternative watches https://goo.gl/T8pJ36 -- here is a link to the details of the watch. TIA
  6. Hello Hubbers. I searched the forums and read every title and some posts under "triathlon", "watch" and "gps" and while some discuss triathlon training watches etc, they were very specific and beyond my understanding or scope. The goal is get more active in offroad duo/triathlons and perhaps later if logistics allows, road triathlons and eventually 70.3. Currently, my cycling training happens with my phone in a saddle bag and recording it on strava, so route, gradients, speeds and elevation are the information points available, with the Sigma bike computer giving cadence while cycling. I usually go running without it so have no frame of reference besides guestimates of distance on google and own timing. Swimming has been on hold until I can find affordable & safe pool access. TL:DRI'm in the market for a watch that can be used primarily for distance (if possible), active time, running pace (if possible) HR and GPS tracking while running, cycling and swimming. A watch with good constant gps battery life (if there is such a watch, maybe gps sleep mode while sleeping?) and android/samsung syncing capabilities will get massive preference, but anything else like vitality link up, step counters, VO2 max, watts, north point etc or message/call/appointment alers are considered non-Vital bonusses. The budget, while preferred as low as possible (R2000 and under, new or used), is largely dependant on the value that lies in the watches and avoid unecessary expenditure later with upgrading or replacement. I've looked at several products like the Garmin Vivosport, Vivosmart (gps version) and 735XT, Fitbit Charge 2, Polar M430, TomTom Spark 3, Huawei Band 2 Pro, Samsung Gear Fit 2 Pro (terrible battery apparently).

    Garmin 935XT

    Garmin just released a 935 which is pretty much the same as the Fenix 5.... but cheaper https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2017/03/garmin-forerunner-935-depth-review.html
  8. I am in need of a new heart rate monitor for cycling and running and am contemplating the Garmin Fenix 3. There are however many unhappy complaints about the unit freezing, losing Ant+ / Bluetooth accessory connections and inaccurate GPS measured distances to just name a few. I understand the firmware updates will address some problems, but how much has the problems been eliminated thus far? The last thing I want is a unit that irritates me because I spent a fortune, but the experience is not so smooth. And if features doesn't work or gives trouble mid ride/run - NOT EVEN AN OPTION. Then I spend less on a unit that only do basics - well. I would appreciate if those of you that have spend some time with the Fenix 3 could shed some light on their experiences and how firmware versions has helped or not helped.
  9. Garmin today announced vívoactive HR, a GPS smartwatch with Garmin Elevate wrist heart rate technology. The vívoactive HR helps keep track of active moments throughout the day, counting steps and floors climbed, intensity minutes, monitoring sleep and featuring built-in GPS-enabled sports apps for walking, running, biking, swimming, golfing, paddle boarding, rowing, skiing and snowboarding. The vívoactive HR uses 24/7 wrist-based heart rate data to calculate calories burned information as well as the intensity of fitness activities, providing proper credit for users’ array of workouts. With the Connect IQ store, users can easily personalize their vívoactive HR with free apps, widgets, watch faces and data fields. Click here to view the article
  10. I am currently looking at buying a new HRM. What works for you guys in multisport environments? I am new to the sport but I have a history of running, have been working with the Polar RS300x for about 7 years now, great value in my opinion. I do see the benefit of getting more info on your training session as I have linked the H7 strap to my cellphone(mounted on my upper arm) to get GPS tracking linked to HR. However dragging a cellphone along every session is tedious and a schlep to see any data during a workout. Thus the upgrade. Looking to do a half IM at most and possibly comrades in the future to check off a box.
  11. I took a tumble in the forests near Wedgwood in Hilton, early Saturday morning. Specifically, it happened at the gap jump in the pines near the Wedgwood boundary. Unfortunately I didn't notice that my watch had come off. If anyone finds it, please call me on 082 5597709
  12. Seems it's here in 2 months or so... http://www.pocketnavigation.de/2016/01/garmin-fenix-3-hr-und-farbvarianten/ See a few comments on DC rainmaker too. Basically a Sapphire with build in hr and the new firmware with golf and support etc... Hope it's true

  14. Hey guys Looking at buying my significant other the new Polar M400 GPS watch, we like the look of the watch and I like the price. I would like to find out if any body owns a Polar GPS watch,how is it? Would you recommend it? I have watched a review and one of the cons of the watch was that you could not export your workouts, so you can't load your rides on any other apps like strava or endomondo. Is this true? Thanks
