Happy Monday! I hope you all had a pleasant weekend and enjoyed the last gasps of summer holiday time. We had a somewhat eventful weekend with many things going on and a very busy week this week. No travel, but busy nonetheless!
If you are a fan of wearables to help you in travel and running, this is going to be a big week. The Apple Watch Series 4 is due to be revealed Wednesday and it looks to be quite an improvement. I will have a post tomorrow about the things that it could have that would pull me from Garmin – and then we will see how much Apple actually puts in!
