Overall update about the blog

So, going forward, there is going to probably be no regular cadence to my blog, but I am going to start posting my thoughts related to my experience with GPS watches, fitness trackers, and other fitness technology.  There probably won’t be any formal “reviews”, but there will be nuggets of info related to specific things with the watches.

There will still be an occasional race report here and there, thoughts on training, updates on my running streak, and hopefully more interesting things.

Right now, here are the watches/gadgets in my possession  (although with reselling, testing, etc., this changes on a regular basis):


  • Garmin Fenix3
  • Polar V800
  • Suunto Ambit3 Peak
  • (outgoing) Suunto Ambit3 Sport
  • Epson Runsense SF-710S
  • (incoming) Fitbit Surge


  • Scosche Rythym+
  • Polar H7 heart rate sensor

Other watches/trackers I’ve tried/owned over the past 18-24 months that I no longer have:Garmin FR410, Garmin Fenix2, Garmin FR220, Garmin 920xt, Polar M400, Fitbit One, Fitbit Force, Fitbit Charge, Fitbit Surge (again), Suunto Ambit2, TomTom Runner, TomTom Cardio.  It gives me a bit of perspective related to GPS watches and fitness trackers which I hope to use to better compare/contrast different watches.

We shall see where this takes me.
