This week's articles

This is the content I posted this week. Don't miss anything!

  • Garmin Vivosmart 3 - A new activity bracelet that opens up interesting possibilities, but you'll have to keep an eye on them, because they will probably be available for other models in the Garmin range.
  • Polar M460 - Polar, for its part, has presented the M460; a renovation on its economy cycling computer.
  • Week 3 to 9 April - A summary of the highlights of the week.

You don't know if you have to connect your device to update it? You received an automatic update and you don't know what it includes? Well, I'm here to tell you.


Links of interest

The most interesting links I have found this week. Almost all of them are curious news related to sport.

  • Strava will incorporate a system similar to Facebook - Goodbye to the chronological order of Strava's activity posts. Throughout this year Strava will change the way it shows you your friends' activities. Instead of doing it chronologically where new activities appear by default and where your epic 6-hour workout that started at 7am will have disappeared at 6pm buried in other activities, it will do it in a similar way as Facebook shows the posts: by relevance.
  • Consider your hydration on the run - You might be surprised by this new way. One beer for every mile run in a half-marathon. So 13 beers that he got between his chest and back, also arriving in a more than decent time of 1:43.42, especially if you include the time to drink the beers and empty the tank.

    Surely in the end the distance has been greater than the 21 kilometers 97 meters of the average. Probably at the end of the race there were more "eses" than usual. In my case, of course, I would arrive at the finish line quite touched.

  •  Google Alphabet division creates smart clock for medical research - Verily, Google's health division, has created a smart clock focused on health monitoring, with various physiological and environmental sensors to measure different cardiovascular variables, movement and other areas. It is not something you will see for sale in the market, but it is a research device. And its purpose is not fitness, but the health sector. Which does not mean that what is achieved through these studies may not be available, in the future, in devices with Android Wear.


And with that... thanks for reading!

I've been surrounded by electronic devices of all kinds for more than 25 years. Using them, testing them, taking them apart and dissecting them. Long distance triathlete: I swim, run and cycle for a long time. Maybe too much.
