One for the techies!
So I might get myself a new wearable as a Christmas present, but this post is not about the device itself, but more about the platform. My only real experience is with Fitbit and I like it but I don't really get the "community" vibe unless you have friends added (which I don't!)
I've created a Strava account and I'm intrigued but I feel like it's reserved for the "cool kids/elites" and I'm not one of them! There's a whole bunch of terminology I don't understand (segments? CR?) but maybe if I spent a bit more time I'd be won over. Also seems to be a lot of features reserved for "Strava Premium"? Just seen you can connect Fitbit with Strava - strava.fitbit.com/ though, so now I am more intrigued.
I don't have any experience with any others - Garmin's platform, Nike Running?, RunKeeper? Are those even things?
What set up do you have and what would anyone recommend? I know it's not personally everyone's cup of tea but I like seeing the stats, it keeps me motivated and allows me to track my progress! Nothing like going from 10:33 pace (including C25K walking intervals) to 6:49 pace (just running) in a few months to make you feel chuffed with yourself!
