    I have a Garmin Fenix 3 GPS/ABC watch. It's a very nice piece of kit, works great for sports other than cycling, and it's nicer in some ways than Garmin's older bike-specific units. Obviously it's...

    This is a very misleading statement. If you want all of the positional capability in the Edge, you don't need a cell phone. A cell phone is only required for other people who aren't there to track...

    It's not odd at all. That video footage they recorded of you buying a lighter at the 7-11 will never "come back" to haunt you. But the video your friend's friend may or may not be shooting of you...

    You mentioned a Jawbone UP app, so I'm going to assume you have a Jawbone. It'll count your steps and track your sleep for you; I assume it has a web site paired to its phone app where you can look...
