fitbit-chargehr-3

Two years ago Fibit introduced the Fitbit Force wrist worn activity tracker. It was really popular until people started complaining about irritations and rashes while wearing the device on their wrist. The Force ended up being taken off the market when Fitbit conducted a voluntary recall in February 2014. Now one year later, the most [...]

We told you about some expensive Tory Burch jewelry holders for your Fitbit Flex.  They cost more than the Fitbit did, and not everyone is going to want to pay that much to pretty up their Flex tracker.  If you like girly accessories, you might like the Fitness Band Bling Accessory jewelry I found at [...]

Miu Aroma Diffuser 9

About a year ago, I hopped on the essential oils bandwagon because several people I know use them for health and wellness purposes. However, I simply enjoyed the aroma and so did my kids. I've since purchased two ultrasonic diffusers, both of which have had drawbacks. One of these, the H2EO Ultrasonic Diffuser, leaves about [...]

nudge

Fitness trackers are terrific gadgets for helping you monitor your activity and fitness goals, but viewing the data from all your wearables can become a huge hassle since all of them have their own dedicated app. Instead of flipping between apps to check your steps, your sleep, and other data, check out Nudge. Nudge is [...]

blade-buddy

If you're using those multi-blade cartridges to shave, you know how expensive they can be.  Wouldn't it be nice to be able to get more smooth, comfortable shaves from each cartridge?  The Blade Buddy promises that it will keep your blades sharp for months, greatly extending the number of shaves you get from each cartridge [...]

thelevel

A few days ago I posted a review of the Varidesk Pro Plus standing desk. I'm enjoying the versatility of this desk and the ability to easily go from standing to sitting in just a few seconds. But after a couple weeks of standing, I've started noticing some problems with my knees hurting from standing in [...]

polar_m400-1

Seems like everyone is getting into the fitness band market these days and as a runner, I find them nice enough but limited as a 'get in shape/get off your butt' tool in many respects. To bridge this gap between fitness and training, the engineers at Polar have created a hybrid device designed to, not only track your [...]

misfit-shine-bloom-necklace

It seems most everyone has a fitness tracker these days, and most of them have a very utilitarian, sporty look.  If you'd rather have something a bit prettier than a silicone wrist band or a belt clip, you can purchase jewelry for your Misfit Shine tracker.  The Bloom Necklace has a pretty, stylized floral look, [...]

cold-shoulder

How's that new year's resolution to lose weight going for you? Give up already? Maybe eating healthy and being more active hasn't worked and you need some extra help. Here's an idea, wear the Cold Shoulder vest. It's a vest with ice packs arranged on the back and shoulders that you keep in the freezer. [...]

Iron Chest Master review

IronChest_ 2

I don't always have time to hit the gym so the next best thing I can do is workout from home. Since working out at home can become stale and boring, it's nice to have a little variety to activate the muscle confusion factor so I jumped at the chance to review the Iron Chest Master. Let's [...]

waterfi-flex

One of the most popular activity trackers on the market is the Fitbit Flex. This is an easy to wear, easy to use tracker that helps you track your activities and sleep. The only thing it doesn't do well is surviving a dunk in water. That means people who want to track swimming as an [...]

basily-water-infuser-water-bottle

If, like me, you're trying to drink more water, but you get tired of plain water all the time, adding some flavoring can make the water more palatable.  Of course, they sell little bottles of water enhancers now that can add fruit flavoring, but they seem to be all artificial color, flavors, and sweeteners.  The Basily Infuser [...]

Exercise is a difficult thing to work into your life sometimes. Gym closings over weekends or holidays, changes in work schedules, and travel for work or pleasure can cause you to miss your workouts. Traveling with equipment more bulky than a few resistance bands and running shoes becomes quite bothersome as well. Enter the Koreball. This [...]

tory-burch-fitbit-flex-silicone-bracelet

Last year, we told you about some pretty Tory Burch accessories to make wearing your Fitbit Flex more stylish and less utilitarian.  Of course those pretty metal bracelets and necklaces come at a premium.  If spending $175-200 for a piece of jewelry - more than the Flex itself cost - isn't in your budget, you [...]

The light weight Runbell is designed to wear on your index and middle fingers and features a spring-loaded striker that activates with flick of your thumb to produce a [...]

Misfit Flash review

Misfit Flash-1

Another year and more fitness bands to review, or that's how it seems. The truth is, I did not plan on doing another fitness band review anytime soon. I bought a Misfit Flash on sale to replace my now defunct Nike FuelBand and since Julie had reviewed its older sibling the Misfit Shine, I didn't [...]

fitsnack-1

Did you make a new year's resolution to eat better and get fit? Yeah me too. So far I'm doing pretty good but there are times when I want a snack it's tough to find something healthy - especially if I'm at work. Vending machines are a no go zone for me because they are [...]

Revolution Golf Tee

From a golfing stand point, last year was a total bust for me. Due to some medical issues, I wasn't able to play many rounds. This year I am determined to not only play more, but improve my game. There are a lot of gimmicks and gadgets out there to help improve your game, but [...]
