On a hunch I checked for updates this morning. Bingo. There was one. I, of course, downloaded — over Wi-Fi. Very quick. Download and install all within 3-4 minutes. That was good.

Appears that this version, added 3 European languages — viz. French, Italian & German — and, as was to be expected, fixed some bugs. Alas, it doesn’t list what they were. Shame.

I have not noticed anything appreciably different. Floors climbed is still erratic but now counting more than it did previously.

That they have gone through 6 versions of software in 9-days is both impressive and scary. That is a lot. But, shows that they are committed. We are not even close to being done. This watch still needs some tweaking before it is ready for Prime Time.

My Chinese New Year 2019 Picture At The ‘Confucius Institute’ At UNH (N.H.).

This was following the extremely successful traditional Chinese umbrella event at the UNH ‘Confucius Institute‘ on Tuesday, January 29, 2019.

Well, I have been celebrating Chinese New Year with the good folks of the UNH ‘Confucius Institute‘ for quite a few years. Here are some other pictures from years past — and note that I wear the same red-themed outfit each year! Consistency is one of my many faults.

Happy New Year — the ‘Year of the Pig’.
