Next will be ear wear, with 54.4 million units and a 27.4 per cent share. Wristbands will account for 24.7 per cent, with 49 million devices.Clothing wearables will have a 1.5 per cent market share, with shipments of 3 million units, with the figure forecast to grow to 8.5 million by 2023.IDC said these devices, comprising of step-counting shoes and other similar products, have been popular in China so far, but they are gaining traction in other markets as big brands including Nike and Under Armour gain headway.Their popularity will rise in the future with more enterprise applications, as companies use clothes to monitor employees, added IDC.

Video: Magura RT6TT Hydraulic Road Brakes In Action, Plus Detail Photos – UPDATED

first_imgMagura’s RT-TT series of brakes are the first modern hydraulic rim brakes designed specifically road bikes, TT and triathlon bikes in particular since shifters aren’t integrated into the levers…and the lever shape, for now, is designed exclusively to fit into bullhorn and aero bars.The design is interesting, using a vertical piston to drive a wedge between rollers on opposing brake arms. As it splits them up top, the pads are pushed toward the rim. The sample captured didn’t have pads included (it was shipped to Parlee to play with, I just happened to be there when the box was opened FTW), but it’s neat to see how it works. Skid past the break for lots of pics… The rear brake without pads/pad holders came in at 305g, which means the top level RT8TT must be significantly lighter if it’s going to come in at the claimed 495g system weight.UPDATE #1: The RT8TT uses alloy hardware and brake arm pivot bolts where the 6 uses steel. Both use aluminum for the body of the master cylinder and brakes.The lever slides into the end of an bullhorn style aero bars. Triathletes, just look away now – Yes, this means the system will need to be disconnected at at least one end to install it. The bolt on the top tightens the expansion wedge to keep it in place.Reach adjust is handled through a screw in the front. The RT6TT gets an alloy lever versus the RT8TT’s carbon fiber one.UPDATE #2: The brakes will likely initially ship without pads and holders,  but they’ll start being included eventually. The system opens enough to accommodate a 28mm wide rim. They will, however, include shims. Combined with the reach adjust, they let you fine tune the space between the pads and the rims, letting you run super narrow carbon climbing wheels along with the current crop of wide aero rims.A heavily shaped spring opens the brakes back up. UPDATE #3: The wedge is a self-lubricating composite, and Magura’s U.S. Technical Service Mgr. Jude Monica says wear should be minimal considering the minuscule amount of movement and that it’s only pushing on roller bearings.The quick release lever under the master cylinder pushes the lever open, which opens the brakes wider for easier wheel removal.Whether it was born of necessity or not, we’ve gotta admit that Avid’s pro bleed kit is head and shoulders above the base models from Magura and TRP…which may not matter with these TT brakes because let’s face it, how many triathletes do you know that work on their own bikes?Check out the original tech post on these brakes here.last_img read more

Rounding up the newsworthy day at Ohio State

first_img Tim Whelan CLEVELAND, Ohio — Monday was a busy day at Ohio State. First, new head coach Ryan Day was busy rounding up his defensive staff. Then came the news that starting quarterback Dwayne Haskins had decided to declare for the 2019 NFL Draft.Ryan Day confirmed to the media that defensive coordinator Greg Schiano will be leaving the program to pursue NFL opportunities. With that, the Buckeyes hired Greg Mattison as co-defensive coordinator, something that if you would have checked online sports betting would you likely would have not been shocked by.Mattison was previously at the University of Michigan as defensive coordinator (2011-2013), linebackers coach (2014), defensive lines coach (2015-2018). He is currently 69 years old.Mattison won’t be the only defensive coordinator for the Buckeyes. Jeff Hafley will also be co-defensive coordinator for Ohio State. He will also be defensive backs coach as well. Hafley was most recently with the San Francisco 49ers as defensive backs coach. He is currently 39 years old.Schiano isn’t the only one leaving Ohio State though as linebackers coach Bill Davis will not return to the program either. Some media outlets in the Columbus area have speculated that cornerbacks coach Taver Johnson may not return the program either.Meanwhile, on the other side of the ball, starting quarterback Dwayne Haskins will not be coming back to Ohio State next season as he declared for the 2019 NFL Draft. Ohio State will now have a huge quarterback competition between transfer Justin Fields and last seasons back-up quarterback Tate Martell.Follow: @Tim_Whelan216 Related Topicslast_img read more

10 months agoMan Utd prepared to sack Mourinho over Christmas programme

first_imgMan Utd prepared to sack Mourinho over Christmas programmeby Chris Beattie10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United are prepared to sack Jose Mourinho over the Christmas programme if results nosedive.The Daily Mail says the manner of United’s capitulation at Liverpool on Sunday has left Mourinho under huge pressure again following the club’s worst start to a top-flight season in 28 years.United face Cardiff, Huddersfield, Bournemouth and Newcastle over Christmas – four winnable games that could also be a potential banana skin for the 55-year-old.Mourinho has appeared to be in trouble before this season and survived, but he is now odds-on to become the next Premier League boss to be axed.It’s understood that United would have to pay Mourinho one year’s salary of £18million to get rid of him, and up to £22.5m if he is still in the Champions League or in contention for a top-four place.
