Goodbye Suunto! Hello Garmin…


I’ve been running or working out with Suunto watches, heart rate monitors, and food pods since 2007. I’ve been feeding data into their online platform called Movescount for a VERY long time. I decided I was done when they announced they are going to shut down Movescount without any way to get your data out. They also don’t sync with popular services, which annoyed the hell out of me. They are supposedly moving it all to some shittier version of Movescount called Sports Tracker, and they wanted to force me to use my phone to sync or something silly. Software is hard, especially when you sell great watches but don’t invest in why your customers buy the watches.

Anyway, I switched over to a Garmin 945 and couldn’t be happier. I was already using them for a bike touring computer so all good there!

This is bwb’s personal blog so he can share his thoughts with the world, however scary or silly they might be. Plus family and friends can track what I am up too, and where I am in the world.

I am pretty simple. I love Mangos. I love the ocean, although mostly at sunset as I’m a ginger. I love to travel, eat exotic food, read, and use my imagination. I love creating and developing ideas into businesses, understanding how all businesses work, and building cool stuff. I am a globalist and see the entire world as my responsibility and playground. And, I am married to an amazing woman who makes life even more fun :)! And, we are now the proud parents of Calico Jack :).
