Are all bike computers created equal? Not really, as Polar has come up with the Polar M460 which will be the culmination of wearable sports and fitness technology knowledge which has been amassed since the past four decades. The Polar M460 will arrive in a sleek, all-black and fiber-like surface texture that will deliver an improved button grip, while being equipped with integrated GPS, additional power meter compatibility, advanced power metrics and smart coaching, and Strava Live Segments. In other words, the $179.90 Polar M460 is being marketed as the ideal training tool for cyclists who would like to achieve their fitness or cycling goals. There is far more value to that price point than meets the eye, since it will be accompanied by a two-month Strava Premium membership.

For those of us that grew up when only one computer was in the household and phones were meant for little more than talking, it seemed like magic when the two became one in smartphones, and computers became capable of anything you can imagine.

The world of virtual reality, or VR in short, is certainly one that is expanding quickly with many people jumping aboard the bandwagon. Even smartphones have become powerful enough to be able to handle their fair share of VR apps with the help of a VR attachment, of course. The next step in the VR world? To be able to “touch” items in there. Of course, the likes of taste and smell are still nigh impossible since we don’t even see those in regular games, so it would be a long time in coming before something like that happens in the VR world. Still, progress must be made, and the latest progress where VR is concerned arrives in the form of the VRgluv — whch is touted to be the first consumer-priced VR gloves in the world.
