Faster Pace Run Dynamics with my Fenix 3

I posted a couple of months ago about the new Advanced Running Dynamics from Garmin. I essentially said that whilst the new metrics such as Vertical Ratio and Ground Contact Time Balance were interesting in their own right, there wasn’t really much that one could use the information for. The Run Dynamics metrics might tell...

Garmin Fenix 3 Set Up

As you may know, I’m now the proud owner of a Garmin Fenix 3 watch. It took a while to get it as it was stuck at the delivery depot for weeks and the two companies that were involved in delivering it (UK Mail and Cooper Carriers) didn’t seem able to communicate with each other, so...

The Apple Watch – Not For Me – I want a Fenix 3

As an Apple Fan-boy, you’d expect me to be excited about the new Apple Watch, but for me it just doesn’t seem to do enough.

Barometric Altimeter Sensor Hole on Foreunner 910XT 30

Fixing the Altimeter on my Garmin Forerunner 910XT

As many of you may know, I’ve had numerous problems with the altimeter on my Forerunner 910XT. Since lusting after the Forerunner 910XT back in October 2011, I bought one in February 2012.

Garmin Connect Calendar

It’s good to see that some companies do in fact listen to their customers. I had a little moan a few days ago about the sudden changes to the Garmin Connect Calendar, and I wasn’t the only one unhappy with the updates. Thankfully it looks as though they have listened to our complaints and have...
