Did you know:

  • The four Garmin heart rate monitor straps ARE different, except for when they’re not?
  • You can create and name your own automated single and multisport profiles on a 920xt (think “Brick”, “Biathlon”, “Conduct Orchestra”)?
  • The “Mode” button on your 910xt seems to do everything except switch modes?
  • “The Footpod: Vital Training Metrics Tool, or Badge of Dweebness?”
  • There are things a 910xt can do that a 920xt cannot?
  • Your Garmin 920xt can warn you when Mike Weiss is in the vicinity?


This session will be a bit planned, a bit winging it, since we haven’t done one of these before. The focus will be mostly on the Garmin multisport watches (the 910xt and 920xt) and the various things with which they communicate (sensors, computers, smartphones, Mike Weiss…) By extension much will be applicable to the other more recent creatures in the Garmin universe such as the Fenix line and the 5xx/8xx/1xxx Edge line. And many of the concepts will apply to other brands of the same kind of stuff (Suunto, Timex, Polar, etc) and we can also discuss them by contrast and comparison.

We’ll try our best to have a multimedia extravaganza of prepared stuff and projected live display as we work with the devices.

Bring your own stuff with buttons!
