April 2015


This April, Speed blows the competition away with its heavy-hitting Sports Tech issue. On the cover is rough and tough Coleen Garcia, who wears her bruises like battle scars and shares her thoughts on staying fit and healthy. Leading the pack of cutting-edge gadgets in this issue are Samsung’s newest smartphones, the GALAXY S6 and S6 Edge. Keep your tech-savvy heart pumping with the latest sports gear and garb, and swim expertly against time and tide with diving watches that beg to get wet.

Speed pulls no punches testing the latest tech and coolest sports accessories, including the Suunto Ambit 3 Peak Sapphire, GoPro Hero4 Black, TomTom Runner GPS, Sony High-Res Walkman, and Under Armour Speedform Gemini. Watch from the ringside as the Cherry Mobile One and MyPhone Uno square off to be the ultimate Android One device. With the Internet of Things slowly creeping into the world of athletics, Speed discusses the pros and cons of a tech-assisted sports landscape. And then, we look back at some of the most impressive technological advancements that changed the way we play and view sports. Learn the ropes from sportsman extraordinaire Toby Claudio, budding rock-steady racer Sean Smith, and U.S.-based Filipina Ultramarathoner Shangrila Rendon, while I.T. expert Val J. Gonzales explores the hidden numbers game in everybody’s favorite sport. Ready to sweat? Check out Speed’s recommended running and training playlists, themed hubs to get you in a sporty groove, and helpful manuals to prepare you for long bike rides and how much exercise you need to burn the bacon, beer, and burger weight.
