Forerunner 935 test. Was I wrong about optical HR monitors?
If you read this blog you know I do not like optical HR monitors (see: Wrist/optical HR monitors are worth +10 BMP). However, it was time to update my aging watch and the Garmin Forerunner 935 was the obvious choice. Check out DC Rainmakers full review here: Garmin Forerunner 935 In-Depth Review. It's essentially the best Garmin ever made. But I'm not here to tell you about the watch, I'm here to tell you about it's optical HR monitor.

The Nike Air Zoom Elite 9 is incredible
Let me start by saying that the Nike Air Zoom Elite 8 was complete and utter garbage. It was supposed to be lightweight, responsive, and fast. It was heavy, bulky, and slow and I hated every minute I ran in them. So why then would I even consider buying the Nike Air Zoom Elite 9?

Is the Roll Recovery R8 worth the steep price?
I'm a lazy runner. One of the reasons I run is that it's so easy to do. I roll out of bed, put on my running clothes, and I'm out the door exercising. I can do this in any city and in almost any weather. I don't love biking or swimming because of all the extra work involved in getting ready and the limitations of where and when they can be done.

Wrist/optical HR monitors are worth +10 BMP
I've had the displeasure of testing several wrist/optical heart rate monitors including those found on the Apple Watch and the Garmin Forerunner 235. I could go into detail and tell you how they only seem to work when you aren't doing anything physical, how they are terrible for running intervals, how they work ok some days and not at all other days, or how they magically seem to always add +10 to +20 BMP to your heart rate (+10 or +20 anything would be great if this was a video game).
