I’ve been using a Garmin Fenix 6x for a couple of weeks and thought it might be interesting to put together a short review. Is it really a smartwatch? I think it’s a misnomer to call the Fenix a “smartwatch”. I would call it a highly capable fitness tracker. That’s not a knock on the product; I really like it so far, but pretty much everything it does is centered around either fitness tracking or navigation.
The MBTA has a trial web service interface that provides access to realtime location information for select MBTA buses, as well as access to route information, arrival prediction, and other features. More information can be found here: http://www.eot.state.ma.us/developers/realtime/ The service is provided by NextBus, which specializes in real-time location information for public transit organizations. The API (sorry, PDF) is very simple and does not require any sort of advance registration.
