    I was given your GPS watch, but I have 2 issues with it :
    – First, my trainin sessions are downloaded to the previous user account, which is messy… Reseting the watch didn’t solve the issue, I guess it is configured in your servers and you might need to do a manual update of the device-account link ? Please advise !

    – second, you say in the manual that I should be able to upload waypoints into the watch since 2012 (i.e. 2+ years ago). I didn’t find any tutorial on that. This is the feature I was most looking forward to see !
    How can it be done ? Even if it is by posting a formated text file in a technical folder, I’m really interested !

    Hopping to hear from you soon,
