Honestly, I don't think there's an elegant way of calling dolphins fish. What's wrong with studying fish for fishlike swimming?



I have taken note of that. I just don't think it's wise to start the...

In the introduction, there's this sentence: "We describe this innovative technique as ‘Fishlike’...

There's nothing for me to learn by wearing them both at the same time. I have all the information that I need to make up my mind; all that is left is to actually do that. ;)

I don't own a 910XT but from what I have read, I have not noticed any major differences between the 910XT, the 920XT, and the Garmin Swim.
What differs is that with the 920XT the pool size can be set...

Nice! I've read about it any it is indeed appealing, compared to the TACX Flow that I have owned for a number of years now.
I will probably not upgrade because I won't be riding my bike indoor much...

As long as it stores the heart rate and corresponding time stamps, I'm fine with it. I can export that as XML and use XSLT to merge two data files if all else fails. It would probably take me a...

I own the Viiiiva heart rate belt and that's the one I'm currently using with my 310XT. Don't ask me why, I don't use any of the advanced features. It just ended up being this way. I guess I'm a...

Well, I have a couple of flight controllers in some drawers myself. Now let me ask you this: How long can you operate such a module with a 2032 battery?

Werner, you're probably right when you say it's possible but I doubt it is practical at this point.

I don't think the number of sensors is the problem. With the rise of smart phones, volume has gone...

Owners of the 910XT would probably have a hard time finding reasons to switch to the 920XT. It's easier for me because I own a 310XT and the Garmin Swim; I had deliberately left out the 910XT and...
