I’d been eyeing the Mio Link Optical Heart Rate Monitor for a few months having seen the Mio technology (which was developed in conjunction with Philips) slowly show up directly integrated in to more and more watches like the Garmin Forerunner 225 and TomTom Cardio, so about 6 months ago I decided to pull the trigger and order one.
Did you get a new GPS watch over the holidays and wonder how you could automatically link your data to your Strava account without having to manually enter it? Are you tired of importing and exporting GPX, TCX, and FIT files? Did you even know that it was possible to automatically upload your data to Strava?

Being an ultra runner living in Utah means a lot of my running and mountain biking adventures occur in the mountains and in remote locations that have poor or no cellular reception. I also tend to run/ride alone quite often, and lately, those runs and rides have been getting longer and longer. For the sake of my family, I started looking around at various options in the event that there was some type of emergency, and I stumbled upon the Spot Gen3.
