The Mio (or Magellan) 505 tested over the past weeks. My findings, recommendations and tips in an in depth review.
When you are running long distances it can become quite lonely out there. The answer? Music! I’ve reviewed the Philips ActionFit Phyton, a light weight affordable sports earphones.
The Adidas miCoach FitSmart is a full blown sports watch. Support for running & workouts. With it’s built in heart rate monitor and paired with your phone you can get automated coaching and detailed metrics.
The Garmin Forerunner 220 is mostly a running watch but dubs as a pretty nice normal watch too. It’s light (40.7 grams) and it can connect via Bluetooth to your phone.
So Wahoo Fitness released the Tickr series with the Tickr, the Tickr Run, and the Tickr X. All of these chest strap heart rate monitors have dual functionality, in means that they support both ANT+ and Bluetooth.
First off, the Ambit 3 is available in Peak and Sport edition, I’ll use the Sport edition for this comparison as I feel it’s the better option for a triathlete. The Peak is the better watch, but if you swim, bike and run (or any of those by itself), the Sport edition is all you need.
