About to get on the bike for the next 13 minutes. Thought I would quickly run down the electronic gear that I have now and think about what I want to get.
- Timex Ironman watch. This is simple, long-lasting, and water-resistant. Great for computing heart rates on the fly, swimming, and intervals.
- Garmin Forerunner 10. This rather expensive watch was given to me by one of the most generous people I know. It’s perfect for logging my outdoor runs and bikes in Strava. I’m thinking this will be good for either tempo (short distances near max effort) or distance activities outdoors.
- Bike computer. This goes on my bike and measures distance and speed. I don’t have a power monitor, but that seems somewhat excessive… I feel like I already have too many devices.
- I may buy a heart rate monitor, depending on how cheap I can get one. It’s a bit inconvenient to have to stop and check my HR all the time. That said, again it’s sometimes better to just stop overthinking devices and actually work out.
