Show Notes

The perfect watch may be here, but we don’t know as the PR guy is on holiday. This week Nick apparently has nothing to say and yet we seem to have gone long again. We talk Apple Watch and FitBit Ionic, plan Jon’s retirement, and get in the buff(s). Nick doesn’t watch TV, Jon doesn’t watch the Internet, and we ask “Can you buy a tattoo from a corner shop”? Whatever you want, we have it all this week. ## Show notes * [VM Footwear](http://vmfootwear.com/)—Nick’s guy who does portraits on trainers but not on trains * [Apple Air Pods](http://amzn.to/2ycYlg6) may be great for running after all.
