I saw some of the teaser pages on the garmin site about the 920XT before they were removed. didn't give too much away other than the price and colour. someone claims to have seen one in Kansas whose wearer said it had inbuilt hrm. which would be optical I guess. my garmin contact told me a while back that garmin don't like optical. so it still might use a strap but which uses their Dynastream burst technology (as licenced to Ambit3)
I make no money from my website from any gadget vendors or advertising, I get virtually no free samples and certainly none of any real value like watches.
I try to be helpful and polite to people. TBH I have very little interest in marathons. I was intrigued by the stats from the 620 but as others (eg dcrainmaker) have said it is very hard to interpret those stats. One way is comparing to other people. One way is comparing to your personal progress over time (as said above)
I think what Mr Way achieved is remarkable and an inspiration to us all.
The etiquette, I believe, is to put the interesting stuff on the forum (which I did) if anyone then clicks to look at my own personal musings then what is wrong with that?
FWIW I also recently assisted in the nomination of Paul Sinton-Hewitt for a 'gong' by getting his local MP (Vince Cable) to support it. I suppose cynically that was also trying to get clicks to my site as I wrote about that too.
I'm not an evil person, honest. But I confess to being a cynic myself so I understand where you are coming from.
Here are Steve Way's new Garmin 620 stats from a recent session. I've just shown the VO and GTC benchmark data. There's a tad more info on a link at the end of this post but I reckon it's all a bit inconclusive. Thoughts?
Here are the super Mr Way's new Garmin 620 stats from a recent session. I've just shown the VO and GTC data. The purpose being to maybe give some sort of benchmark. I've added a little bit more info on a link at the end but the conclusion is that it's all a bit inconclusive, although I did not spend too much time looking at them. Enjoy.
