If you have been totally disconnected, I will now summarize what has happened on the web during the last week and the latest updates in the sports technology sector (so that you don't miss anything). There are also small notes of interesting links that I have found on the internet these days. If you find something interesting that you think is worthwhile, let me know by Twitter or Facebook From time to time I also share or retweet information or links of interest, so don't forget to follow me on social networks if you want to know them all. Here are the highlights of this week.
This week's articles
This is the content I posted this week. Don't miss anything!

- Garmin Fenix Chronos Update (beta channel) - Added support for the GroupTrack option that until now was only present on the Edge, so you know it's another option that will be on the Fenix 5. Also included is support for Bontrager lights through ANT+, plus other improvements and troubleshooting.

Links of interest
The most interesting links I have found this week. Almost all of them are curious news related to sport.
- Stravistix, Strava with steroids - Stravistix is an application that you can install in your browser (for Chrome and Opera). After doing so you will have two new things, first a general panel where you can synchronize all your activities and see data on fatigue, fitness and trend over time, useful to see when you have reached peaks or when you should start working on your fitness if you want your season to be something decent (as you will see, I am in the second case).
It's not only that panel, the activities are also vitaminized, being able to see many more details of the file that has been synchronized to Strava (and that you will usually do automatically). Just compare these two screenshots, first is what you usually see, while the second is the version powered by Stravistix.
And if you click on the orange bar, you can access full graphs of the activity with many more details.
Including, for example, running power data that Strava does not show in any way.
The segments also include more detail.
Plus, it's not exclusive to your activities. You can also "gossip" about any other Strava user. Cool!
- The Polar H10 sensor is now available - The new pulse sensor that Polar presented during CES 2017 is now available. Will this be the start of other presentations for Polar? We'll see...
- Suunto announces availability date for Spartan Sport Wrist HR - We already have an arrival date for the First Suunto watch with optical pulse sensorMarch 30th. He will also come with a bread under his arm, as he will be accompanied by a new update for the entire range. It's time to work on the final test of the Spartan after the initial look I made from the range. Spoiler: Now that's an interesting watch.
- The Triathlon Super League has begun - And it has been interesting, without a doubt. Three days of competition in short and very intense races, with a very television format (at least much more than much longer races). Things happen very fast and, although it still costs to get used to the different types of races that comprise each weekend, I think that at the level of the public it will be quite positive.
For the athletes I'm sure it's still going to be hard for them to get used to - very fast transitions, many changes of discipline and much shorter distances than they're used to.
But it looks really good. It's gonna be the Formula 1 of triathlon.
And with that... thanks for reading!
