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.

Links of interest
The most interesting links I have found this week. Almost all of them are curious news related to sport.
- Garmin presents the accounts for the first quarter of 2017 - It is always interesting to take a look at Garmin's financial statements, because by looking at sales trends it is possible to predict when they will make product presentations. The 20% sales increase in the Outdoor division stands out, which corresponds to the introduction of the Fenix 5 in the market. Yes, it has just arrived in the stores, but Garmin is counting the sales it makes to distributors. In the Fitness category, despite registering a decrease of 3%, I think it is a very good figure. There are no major developments in that segment, and yet sales remain strong, so there is no need to accelerate the arrival in the market of substitutes for the bestsellers of this division, such as the Forerunner 235 or the Edge 520.
- TomTom Sports synchronizes data with Google Fit and Apple Health - The new TomTom Sports update allows you to import activity data from Google Fit or Apple Health (e.g. steps) into the TomTom Sports application, so you have a global picture of what your activity is like throughout the day. And with an added benefit, there's no duplication of data if you do activities with both devices at the same time.
And with that... thanks for reading!
