Maybe They Really Should Make A ‘Rolex’ Watch Face For The ‘Garmin Fenix 5’.

by Anura Guruge


It started this morning with this post, by a new member, on the ‘Garmin Connect Users‘ on Facebook.


I couldn’t resist.

Took me less than a minute to dash this off using PowerPoint and post it. But, I did provide some MAJOR clues.


Folks, quite understandably, liked it — though one person did not fully appreciate my humor or being pedantic that I had NOT used ‘photoshop‘, since I had used PowerPoint.

Got me me thinking.

Maybe Garmin and Rolex should partner. Create some watches under license. Charge BIG, BIG bucks.


Well I was having so much fun and it only takes me seconds — on PowerPoint. So, I did this too. Those who know me will appreciate the IRONY.

My ‘Garmin Fenix 5’ Has Now Outlived My First ‘Garmin Vivoactive 3’ By 3-Days!

So far, so good. No major problems. Not 100% happy with backlight, BUT I can live with that.

Yes, the Fenix 5 is a very different beast to the Vivoactive 3 — as it should given the price difference. Seems much more workmanlike and rugged.

But, given my bad experiences with the Vivoactive 3 I continue to walk on eggshells. That is not ideal. Keep on waiting for something to go wrong! Hate that. Once I am out of the 45-day return window — in about 4-weeks — I will really become paranoid.

Wendy’s, Concord (NH) Was Streaming News & Stock Market Quotes From 6-Days AGO!

Very strange. Inexplicable, weird and kind of disconcerting.

We were in Concord today and Teischan, given a choice of what and where to eat, quite surprisingly chose Wendy’s — even though we had suggested her usual favorite, Friendly’s.

They have changed the menu and I am not sure whether it is for the best (and I do happen to own Wendy’s shares).

They, as is their practice, had two large TVs. It was streaming news and stock market happenings including stock prices. I had not checked any stock in a few hours but seeing Google down $15 did not seem right. I didn’t get too excited to begin with. I then saw some references to the trade war with China! That seemed wrong. I had heard, in the morning, that we had declared a truce on that. Ahhh!

Then I happened to notice the day and time. May 15. It was May 21. The time was also wrong.

Tried to explain this to an oriental manager. He was not too conversant with the English.

Strange ….
