Mio-Alpha2-1

I love trying out the latest in heart rate monitors, especially those that do not require straps. I currently use a Polar M400 (which Dave Rees reviewed in February of this year) with the Polar H7 Bluetooth heart sensor chest strap and they work really well, but it would be nice not to have to use [...]

Runtastic-Libra-1

I've been using a Tanita BC554 Ironman InnerScan Body Composition scale for over a decade and love it. It has been my accountability partner in trying to stay healthy. The only thing I have longed for is either a WiFi or Bluetooth feature that would automatically sync all the data to an app to keep [...]

lumolift-posture-fitness-tracker-2

The Lumo Lift Posture and Activity Coach does things that normal fitness trackers do, like count your steps, distance, and calories.  The Lift has an extra benefit, though.  You wear the Lift on your shoulder, and it monitors your posture and gives you feedback to help you improve your posture.  When you sit, stand, walk, [...]

fitbit-aria-1

Whether you call it the IOT (Internet of Things), being plugged in, or something else, I really enjoy using connected devices. Some people will say, who needs a thermometer that saves your readings or a fitness tracker that tells you how many steps you've walked each day. I say why not! I don't have the world's [...]

Wahoo-TickrX-1

Fitness gadgets are my exercise motivator. I love them. My only caveat is that they must be able to accurately track at the very least my heart rate and calories burned during a workout and not just my daily routine activities. The more data they collect the better. When the Gadgeteer was offered the Wahoo [...]

SUB Sports Utility Bag

We are a multitasking society and with that we expect the items we use on a daily basis to be the same. But when it comes to gym bags, they seem to have fallen behind in this trend. Living in the time crunched world we do today we often find ourselves heading from a workout [...]

jeanene-fitbit-flex-bracelet-etsy

Apparently, jewelry for your fitness tracker is the new thing.  I found a seller on Etsy that offers metal bracelets, necklaces, and even a little purse for Fitbit trackers; they also have some accessories for the Jawbone Up and the Garmin Vivofit.  The Jeanene is an example of a bracelet for the Fitbit Flex.  The [...]

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 [...]

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, [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

garmin_fenix2-1b

Best.running.watch...ever. I have used many fitness and running watches over the years, none of them perfect. Some came closer than others to running-Zen, but many never even left the gate. I have been using the Garmin fēnix 2 on and off for months now and continue to be amazed how much it impresses me. I know my first [...]

For those of you who monitor your heart rate with a chest strap while working out, I am sure you know the pain and irritation they can cause. Just this past week, while reviewing a different fitness device, the included Bluetooth HR chest strap literally made me bleed during a long run. The engineers at [...]

The Vessyl, created by a company called Mark One, is a 13 ounce cup that contains sensors which can determine the type of drink (including sodas, alcohol, smoothies, tea, coffee, etc.) as well as [...]

G-Wearables Goccia

So, we are well into the new year, and how many of you have already scrapped that new year's resolution to get fit or work out? I know you are busy, or lack the proper motivation. One way to motivate yourself is a fitness tracker, but often they are a little too noticeable or limited [...]

Angel Health Sensor

Lets face it, with the cost of medical care and health insurance rising, it is more important than ever to look after your health. I have seen a lot of wearable activity monitors around, I even wear a Nike FuelBand everyday, but the information that you can get back is more about activity and not [...]

Many kids and adults nowadays have trouble getting off the couch and exercising. Running is not the most enjoyable activity for kids, and it takes time out of a busy schedule for adults. But what if you had another reason to do that running? The iBitz by GeoPalz has come up with a device and [...]

  Every time we visit my in-laws, there is always a discussion about speed eating at the dinner table. We debate whether it is good or bad for you, but normally the general consensus is that it's not; the theory being that it can cause you to overeat. Changing the fast eating habit can be [...]
