    Is "you look like a triathlete" now the ultimate in disdainful scorn?

    I assume you mean apart from the Yorkshire pair?

    Anyway, to answer Mossdog's question, I'd go Garmin Instinct every time and although not particularly thrifty, it is well under half the price of a Fenix.

    Actually I've always thought triathlons are for people who are not very good at anything but alright at several things that few people want to bother with. I could add "why would anyone?" but then remembered - it's the bling!

    Why not trampolining + golf + archery or para-gliding + ski jumping + basketball?

    Golf and gliding mainly although I love the sound of a trampoline and archery duathlon. Even better combined into a new sport - what could possibly go wrong!
