MY BEST TECH: Conrad Bates

Patrick Stafford /

Conrad Bates is managing partner at C3 Business Solutions, an information management company, which helps businesses capture and analyse data faster than usual methods.

Bates says his favourite piece of tech at the moment helps him with his exercise. With a business so focused on accurate information management, it only makes sense Bates’ personal tech would help him out in the same way.

“My favourite gadget is my Garmin Edge 800, a cycling computer. Not only does it provide navigation, but it’s also a personal trainer and will map today’s ride performance on the same course that you did yesterday and tell you that you’re a minute behind on a hill climb.”

“When combined with strava.com, it gives you segment analysis (for example, a particular hill climb) and compares your ride performance to your friends and/or professional riders.”
