hmmm K5 Gus apps.garmin.com

playing with data fields at weekend and this might help it lets you split one line into 3 items of data the top one includes a clock

you can at most get 7 items on a page but it lets me get all I want on one screen :-)

That's good to know that it's not just me. I will try to play around with it to see if I can get it to work. No luck so far! :-(

Santa looks like he's bringing a Vivoactive for me later this month, but not with a HRM.

Any recommendations for a HRM that can be paired with the Vivoactive that can also be paired (if desired) with strava apps on Android (essential) and iOS (optional)? I've lazily not really googled the underlying tech that the Vivoactive will allow for (I do know it is Ant+, but not sure on bluetooth etc)?

Done some googling and it looks like I need a dual band hrm to meet my needs. In the interest of financial expediency I've plumped for a cheap chinese knock off - a "coospo" HRM, sold by Amazon for £20, which appears to meet the brief. Whether it is any good or not remains to be seen, so if it is complete rubbish then the Wahoo TICKR looks like the branded alternative (£50-ish). If I remember I'll report back on the Coospo!
