About me

I’m a guy with software engineering experience and gadgets/running passion. The software engineering part started 20 years ago and still continues to give me satisfaction.

Running. The running started in autumn of 2014 and since then, I added several thousands km. Being an analytical and data driven person, my main support in running was having devices that tell me how am I doing.

I started with an Endomondo app on my faithful BlackBerry, then migrated to a Garmin 920XT, then continued with Garmin Fenix 3, Garmin Fenix 5, Garmin Fenix 5X+, Forerunner 945 and a Fenix 6X. I also tested a Polar Vantage V (a competent candidate for my tool of choice for running) but it just wasn’t mature enough to replace the Fenix 5X+ at that moment (March 2019). I currently own a Vantage V (updated to the latest FW) that I enjoy wearing from time to time, still not being completely decided between Garmin Fenix 6X and Vantage V.

I’m always looking for new tools and gadgets – Garmin, Suunto and Polar (even Coros) are on my list – I just can’t keep myself from admiring new gadgets – but since that helps me move more and be active, it could be seen as a positive.

Location: Bucharest, Romania (most of the time)
