I have been working with a coach for a little while now, which has been great for what I wanted, simply using excel spreadsheets and other pretty simple tracking processes via email and phone.

Things have recently progressed and we are now using TrainingPeaks which has been fantastic. I train with power and use the Pioneer computer to directly upload to Cyclosphere and then transfer to TrainingPeaks. As part of my plan I have regular cross training and weightlifting sessions which I would like to start tracking so my training load is accurate in TrainingPeaks and gives my coach a better understanding of what I'm doing.

I'm not keen on having my Pioneer in my pocket and would ideally like some other workout features so have been looking at trackers/multi sport watches. I don't really run or swim but it's mostly cross fit style workouts or gym sessions with some kayaking thrown in at times. This rules some items such as the Garmin 910/20 a little overkill for what I want.

Something like the Mio Fuse would be ideal but I'm not sure of It's accuracy or the quality of data provided. The Garmin Vivoactive watch or TomTom Cardio GPS seem to be reasonably priced options with great data.

Is anyone using one of these items for this purpose? Recommend anything? Data needs to be transferable or upload able to Training Peaks.

HR in the context of monitoring training loads in the gym in the context of overall training load is relatively worthless.

Actually HR is relatively worthless for tracking training load in general.
