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!
- 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.
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.
- Suunto Spartan Update - The new update for the Suunto Spartan focuses on GPS. It improves performance and also adds the ability to use GLONASS satellites (more information about GLONASS and how it can benefit you here).
- Polar M400 Upgrade - Expected upgrade for the Polar M400, which allows you to get pace and distance without GPS or footpod through the internal accelerometer of the watch, so you can run on the treadmill with just the watch and have activity data.
- Garmin Forerunner 920XT upgrade (beta channel) - Error correction, mainly in ski mode
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.
