  • 2017 Racing Calendar - Have you already prepared your racing calendar for the new year? You should start thinking about it to adapt your training and see if there are any inconsistencies with the goals set. Here is mine.


Product Updates

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.

  • Special speed limits for roads with a high number of cyclists - This news is very well received by the group of cyclists, and not so much by the group of motorists. But I always say the same thing, it all boils down to an issue of education. But not only from those who ride in motor vehicles, but also from those of us who pedal.
    If I ride my bike properly and respect the signs I won't have angry drivers around me. If we all did that to the riders we wouldn't be looked at so badly. Respect and you will be respected.
  • New development version of Android Wear 2.0 - And probably last before the final release of the new operating system in February. It's a minor update, but what's most notable is that iOS support is now available.
  • Under Armour and HTC's project finally cancelled - If last week I was bringing you images of what could be Under Armour's new GPS clock (under HTC hardware), it seems that the leak was not such. HTC sources confirm that the project was cancelled for good.
  • Stryd creates a new algorithm to record race training load - I guess you are familiar with the term TSS in cycling, which takes into account power data versus your FTP to determine the hardness of a workout. You can read more details in the guide to understanding Garmin ConnectThe idea is to create a similar data for racing that allows it to be used in the same way for racing training days.

Thanks for reading!

  1. The update of the Polar M400 is quite good, apart from tape, is useful in situations that you run out of GPS signal, in one of my trail routes, I go through some tunnels, where before I was without any data in the clock, until I have GPS signal again, now I get the message of lost GPS signal, but if you hit the button "back" we go the one given to go back in the menus, stop a practice or remove the messages from the screen, then you get again the data of the practice with speed and rhythm obtained by the accelerometer, is not as reliable as the GPS but it is a detail that this form of measurement is also used "hot" as soon as you run out of signal, not only in indoor sports modes.

    Also sometimes I suffered some restart of the clock when I went to start a practice, and at least for the moment I haven't played it again, although I've only done 3 or 4 practices since the output of the firmware, so we'll have to check it.
