GPS Accuracy

GPS Accuracy After a recent walk, I decided to analyse the data from the Garmin FIT files - one from my eTrex 25 and the other from my Apple Watch 4 and iPhone XR. I was purely interested in seeing how well the Garmin eTrex 25 was able to act as a tracker - mainly as when I was using it for my geocaching walk, it seemed to be tracking me, but looked on the screen to be sticking purely to the paths in the grounds of Wollaton Hall, which was a bit surprising.

Apple Watch Step Counter

Apple Watch Step Counter One of things I’ve found missing from the Apple Watch is the ability to display your steps for the day. The Apple Watch does have the ring system - something that I’ve found to be generally better than the Garmin system as Garmin only tracks intensity minutes and steps but occasionally it’s nice to check my step count for the day. After all, the watch tracks the steps you take during the day, it seems odd that it doesn’t display it.

Goodbye Dropbox!

I’ve done something this week that I don’t think I’ve done for almost five years - I’ve removed Dropbox from my Mac. gasp I know, how could I? Well, I think it’s slowly been a long time coming. Since I bought my Synology1, I’ve been using that more and more for various items. Up until recently however, it hadn’t come close enough to replacing Dropbox fully. However, I think the time now has come.

Chromebook Review

So I’ve been using a Chromebook now for a few weeks and I thought I’d say a few words on it. I’ve seen it slated in various places because of what it is (basically a dumb terminal with access to the web). However, whilst that’s pretty apt, I thought I’d mention my thoughts on it. Chromebook I purchased the Samsung Series 3 Chromebook, partly due to it’s similarities to the Macbook Air.
