Updated Polar M400 (and V800) review

Polar released new firmware for the M400. I tested out its footpod support, as well as checking to see if they improved the appalling GPS accuracy. I managed to get the M400 (and V800) to work with the Adidas footpod, but it’s a bit convoluted. The Polar Footpod works nicely, but it’s huge size is yet another indicator of how far Polar have fallen behind their competition.

Asics GT 2000

I like to compare running shoes against the Asics GT 2000 as it's one of the best examples of the traditional running shoe, and nearly every shoe I test looks good when compared to it.

Merrell Trail Glove 3 Review

I don't always run in a minimalist shoe, but when I do, it's the Merrell Trail Glove. They're comfortable, well designed, fit a range of foot shapes, and they last a long time.

Asics DS Racer 10 Review

I didn't expect much from the Asics DS Racer, and while its cushioning is better than I anticipated, overall I was still disappointed. I’ve analyzed the DS Racer and compared it to the Asics Hyper Speed, NB RC5000, Hoka Clifton, Saucony Kinvara and the Asics GT 2000.
