02-Garmin-weekly

Since the 910XT and 920XT have gained a solid reputation as Garmin’s dedicated triathlon watches, I came across some triathletes that seemed to be unsure about where the Fenix 3 exactly fits in.

What you put in your bottle and how attentive you are to drinking it is directly related to how well the training session turns out and how good you feel at the end of it (believe me; I have first-hand experience of this).

So it’s Monday morning and I’m sitting in a coffee shop at Willowbridge Shopping Centre (Northern suburbs of Cape Town) with mixed emotions.
