I'm Ian Blackburn, a tech enthusiast, founder and CEO of and, and a keen amateur triathlete.  

On Aug 6th, 2017 I finished my first IronMan in Maastricht - it wasn't as fast as I would have liked, and I almost quit twice during it, but with the support of my family I crossed the line.  I used a Garmin Forerunner 935 and a Wahoo Elemnt Bolt for that event and for the training before it.

But now I'm wondering how far you can go with an Apple Watch 3 as a committed triathlete.  If that's of interest then stay tuned - I'll be using Apple Watch as I train for my next IronMan in Wales, reviewing the apps and comparing it to other gadgets.  And setting a goal of a sub 14hr time.  Can Apple Watch 3 get me there?
