sagely-pillorganizer

If you take more than one pill per day, whether they are vitamins or drugs for a medical condition, organizing them so you won't miss a daily dose can be a chore. We've all seen the cheap rectangular pill boxes that are separated into seven sections, one for each day of the week and have [...]

withings-go

I have been a fan of Withings fitness products for a very long time and have been using their Wifi Body Scale every day for the past six years. Their Activité activity-tracking wrist watches are some of the nicest looking fitness trackers on the market right now. But for those of us who are a [...]

Fitness tracking devices are available in a variety of colors and styles that range from feminine to sporty, and from flashy to utilitarian. But there aren't that many fitness devices that pair the classic look of a wrist watch with technology that tracks your steps and sleep patterns. Withings did it with their Activité watches [...]

Nietzsche said, "That which does not kill us makes us stronger." This is especially true in strength training. As we exercise against a resistance, muscle tissue is damaged; when the muscle tissue is repaired it becomes thicker at a cellular level. Muscle damage also causes muscle cell generation, which adds new muscle tissue and strength. These [...]

Getting sick is obviously no fun, but having an easy way to track your fevers can be just a little more fun when you use the Kinsa Smart Thermometer. You might be thinking, why should I spend money on a digital thermometer when my old style glass thermometer or existing digital thermometer works just fine. [...]

Have you ever been on an international flight and needed to use the bathrooms? You know that they've been used multiple times and you've seen how dirty they get. Well, this hasn't escaped the engineers at Boeing either. According to the Boeing website, engineers have built a prototype lavatory that uses far UV light, which [...]

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 40 million American adults currently smoke, and smoking is the leading cause of preventable disease and death across the nation. A new smart trans-dermal patch could provide advantages over existing smoking cessation tools such as current nicotine patches, e-cigarettes and nicotine gum. Prospectively, the device will [...]

The Trimr All-In Tote (a new Kickstarter project) is a seriously stylish gym bag! And tough too! The heavy duty materials used could easily be found in a range bag filled with ammo and range safety equipment.  Instead, the ballistic-looking exterior is accented with 3 gold plated zipper pulls.  The bottom zipper opens w-i-d-e to [...]

drysure

You've put in a full day of snowboarding or an extra long running session, and your footwear is quite damp. Instead of waiting perhaps days for the insides of your boots or shoes to dry, slip in a pair of DRYSUREs and your footwear will be dry by the next morning. Patent-pending DRYSUREs consist of an [...]

Fitness watches are the craze nowadays, with even the Apple Watch boasting fitness capabilities. There are so many out there, that there has to be one for nearly everyone. I prefer the type that has the continuous heart rate monitoring, while my husband just prefers something simple that he doesn't have to charge often. I [...]

For those of us that suffer from hypertension,  keeping track of our blood pressure is important.  An annual check up with the Doctor isn't enough, so home testing is helpful.  I've used several devices to do my daily checks, but most of them are either very inaccurate or they are bulky and not fun to [...]

  As a lot of us get older we tend to increase the number of pills we take every day, anything from simple vitamins and aspirin, to heart and blood pressure medications. Taking one medication a day is a simple thing, but what if you have multiple pills to take multiple times a day? Just [...]

Nike has announced its first mainstream shoe to feature a new self-lacing technology. Inspired by the film Back to the Future, Nike released an actual self-lacing version of Marty McFly's sneakers on October 21, 2015. Though they caught our wonder and attention, they were largely unattainable--only a small number were made and were available only [...]

I know that I have bad posture. I slouch all day in front of a computer when I'm at work and do the same thing when I get home. Sometimes I catch my profile when I'm reviewing my security camera footage and see myself walk by the window with my head forward and rounded shoulders. [...]
