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 [...]

3D-Heart-Model

The Gadgeteer has reported in the past about how you can print a light saber, a storm trooper, musical instruments, and pen holders using 3D printers. When I think of 3D printing, these are the types of things that come to mind, but I was blown away when I read about how a 3D printed [...]

For a lot of people, a new year means resolutions to start getting healthier. To do that you just need to eat better and be more active right? Of course doing those two things are very important, but what about potential issues going on inside your body that you don't know about which could be effecting your health? [...]

griffin-fitbit

If the wrist strap and belt clip that comes with the Fitbit Flex or Fitbit One activity trackers are a little too dull for your liking, consider these three new wearable accessories from Griffin. Designed specifically for the Fitbit Flex or Fitbit One, there's the Courier Clip for Fitbit ($19.99), KaZoo Clip for Fitbit ($14.99), and the Tracker Clip ($14.99). [...]

Winter is here with a vengeance, and you may be plagued with dry skin and static shocks as a result of the dry air the extreme cold brings.  The VapOrb USB Ultrasonic Humidifier can moisten your air and reduce your discomfort.  Best of all, it's only 2" in diameter, so you can take it with [...]

mini-travel-electric-shaver-and-cigarette-lighter

I told you about the travel kit I put together for my husband who wet-shaves with vintage double-edged razors in a previous post (see links at the end of this post).  His kit is loaded with all of the luxuries of home, but it's big and heavy and takes a lot of room in his [...]

podiumskinsuits-tron

I'm not much of a cyclist myself, but I am a big fan of the "Tron" films, particularly the newer "Tron: Legacy." The futuristic costumes worn by the characters inside their imaginary computer reality were way cool. When I randomly stumbled onto this Tron-Inspired Cycling Skinsuit from Podium Cycling, I had to share it. Due [...]
