Chief Content Officer
Gareth is Saga Exceptional’s Chief Content Officer, overseeing all the prose, pictures and video that appear on the website.
He was previously Global Editor in Chief of TechRadar, one of the world’s largest and most prominent technology websites, and has appeared as a technology and fitness expert on the TV and radio for the BBC, ITV, Al Jazeera, Sky and many other outlets, as well as chairing panels on the world’s new and exciting tech.
A veteran journalist with a career spanning three decades, Gareth has reviewed every iPhone (bar the very first) and Apple Watch launched, as well as reviewing hundreds of other smartphones and fitness gadgets.
His high point was getting to travel the globe to new and exciting product launches, getting to see the latest tech before anyone else and being able to run in some of the most beautiful places on the planet; the low point being stuck in an office for hours because his ‘smart socks’ wouldn’t charge.
A ‘dedicated’ (read: obsessed) runner, Gareth has run over 16,500 miles, been lost in Indonesian jungles and has competed in hundreds of races. He has just completed his tenth marathon and is already contemplating the 11th… but this time, he knows he has to the strength training and stretching if he doesn’t want his running career curtailed.
