Links of interest
The most interesting links I have found this week. Almost all of them are curious news related to sport.
- New ANT+ profile for race dynamics - ANT Alliance makes "public" a new profile for manufacturers to use external sensors to display running dynamics data. Vertical oscillation, ground contact time, stride length, etc. All this data is what was already available in Garmin watches with HRM-Run or HRM-Tri sensors. So... What's new? Well, until now this was a proprietary ANT+ channel to which only Garmin had access and now it becomes a public profile so that any pod manufacturer will be able to design sensors that take advantage of these features.
- Kinematix ends operations - Kinematix, a kind of trainer that was placed in a template in the shoe, announces the closure of the business. A new victim of bad planning, and is that the manufacturers of such sensors are determined to make us run with a mobile phone, when honestly ... we are less and less willing to do so.
And with that... thanks for reading!
