This week's articles

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

  • Suunto Spartan range. The proof - One more test, one of those you like. Long, detailed and very, very worked. All the details and what you need to know about the Suunto Spartan range and how they have evolved in the year they have been on the market.
  • Week 22 to 28 May - A summary of the highlights of the week.


Offers on GPS watches and other devices

Offers come and go, and usually only last a few days, either because the product is sold out or because the promotion ends. So if something you see is interesting to you, don't wait for five minutes. First shoot and then ask.

  • Garmin Week at Amazon Italy - A week with VERY good prices. Remember that although you have to add up shipping costs (usually around 8 euros), the tax rate in Italy is higher than in Spain, so it will practically be compensated once you go to make the payment. Here are some examples of the juicy offers:
  • Suunto Ambit3 Sport HR - The offer continues, because there are still units left. 58% discount on a watch that is still very up to date.
  • Suunto Ambit3 Run HR - And if you're just going to run here is this other piece of offer, also with a 59% discount.
  • TomTom Spark Cardio Music Premium - Special version of the Spark (same as Runner 3It's the version with an optical sensor and the ability to play music, along with a premium strap. It's priced like the regular Runner 3 Cardio, so the discounted 36% is quite tasty.
  • Garmin Edge 820 - With a discount of 21%.
  • Suunto Spartan Sport HR - 38% discount on the white model. And as I say in the test, I like it... it won't be the one that offers the most features, but it has an impressive display, and a "something" that makes it very pleasant to use.


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.

  • Favero Assioma - Favero, the manufacturer of the bePro pedals which is the power meter I recommended until now, presents a new pedal. It keeps the same format, but improving the two most outstanding aspects. It no longer has a locking system and the need to be installed in a certain way, and now receives Bluetooth support. Therefore, if its ability to measure power continues to be as reliable as in the first model of the manufacturer, it will become my new recommendation.
  • Stryd PowerRace - Stryd continues to work on its product, now with a new Connect IQ application that sets a power target - the goal is to take time and pace out of the equation, to focus on effective power.
  • Relive, now also for running - Relive was born as a video for your cycling workouts. Now it also includes the ability to display your running routes. Relive your best workouts or your running races in a visual and easy way. Remember that you simply need to synchronize Relive with your Strava account.
  • Ironman acquires Competitor group - Ironman continues to extend its tentacles, this time with the Competitor group, which in addition to magazines such as Triathlon Magazine, are the owners of the Rock 'n' Roll racing series (e.g. Madrid Marathon).

And with that... thanks for reading!

  1. Hi, Eduardo!
    I just saw the garmin 1000 explore in amazon italia, I saw it in another page and I remembered you and I'm going to buy it through your link to collaborate with your great work.
    It's worth this gps for this price, isn't it? Will I have any problem if you have trouble returning it? Will I have to do everything directly with Italy?
    Is it worth paying a little more for the 820? or for the 1000 NOT to explore?

    Thanks in advance.

    1. Javier, first of all I would like to thank you for remembering the page before making the purchase. Thank you very much!

      If you want a big screen, it's definitely a piece of cake. I don't remember ever being at this price, not even on Black Friday.

      The other difference is that while the Edge 820 has internal memory, the Edge 1000 allows you to insert a memory card.

      Forget about the Explore, they're cut-out versions of the original models.

      1. Hello again!
        It's already bought, I was so excited about the price that I couldn't even wait for your answer.
        Of course I bought it from your link.
