I’m a recreational athlete. I like to call myself a triathlete but with the season being dead up here in the Great White North, i havent been very active in the running or swimming scene. Heck id even stopped training completely in March. After gaining 15 lbs, and starting to workout again casually outside, i looked at my personal health spending account with work and noticed an amount that’s begging to be spent!
I’m hesitant on what to get first as there are a few things i want:
Power meter (i have none)
Bike Computer (i have none)
New tracking watch (i have a garmin vivoactive HR, quite an old model)
I’d ultimately love to do outside workouts but that would require both a power meter and a bike computer, which ones i don’t know… i’m leaning towards a favero assioma uno and a Garmin 500 series bike computer… or could i get away with a cheaper bike computer? (in the end i just want to see my power, hr, speed stats)
The watch, at least a forerunner 735xt, would be in order to better track multisport activities (especially swimming, which my current one sucks at)
I’ve given up on upgrading my smart trainer (tacx vortex) as i ‘only’ use it from november to march
What would you guys go for first and what models/brands would you choose?
