The new Apple Watch Series 2

The first wearable I purchased, and used daily to track my fitness activity was the Nike Fuel Band. I enjoyed wearing this device and was sad Nike discontinued the product. The day Apple announced the Apple Watch I immediately became a fan. I was an early adopter for the Apple Watch when it launched, and have been wearing once ever since. I have upgraded to the Apple Watch Series 2 and absolutely love it! The size is the same, however the speed is much better and you don’t need to have your iPhone with you at all times. It’s great for working out and tracking activity. The new watch is water resistant to 50 meters, and has built in GPS. The screen is also 2x brighter than the original and has improved battery life. I highly recommend this watch to track all your activity and get notifications from your iPhone.

2016 Trek Emonda S 4

Trek Emonda S 4

I took a couple of my Trek bikes in for service and the nice folks let me go test a demo 2016 Emonda S 4 road bike. This is a great bike, smooth and fast gearing, and looks great. The seat was firmer than on my FX (I’m a newbie) but the overall feel and speed was really nice. This is the next step bike from my 2014 FX. The weather here in Florida is great for biking right now. The gearing is all in the handlebars and you have 3 different positions to hold onto the bars. The brakes felt good but I just rode on flat roads around the shop. The steering is very precise compared to my FX and the position and balancing are very different compared to the FX. This bike just wants to go, and is really smooth. The bike is $1499 and they are on sale for $1299. I reckon you check it out.
