oral B deep sweep 1000-02

"He needs to brush longer," said my son's dentist.  Funny, I seem to get that from my dentist as well.  What good could an electric toothbrush do that can't be accomplished with a regular toothbrush?  Today we look at the Oral-B Deep Sweep 1000 Electric Toothbrush. Oral-B Deep Sweep 1000 Electric Toothbrush Features: Superior plaque [...]

My hands are always drier than the desert, and the skin on my knuckles is usually cracked and often bleeding.  This used to happen to me only in the winter, but it's a year-round thing for me now.  I slather on lotion, but it's cold and stings.  The Heated Lotion Dispenser from Sharper Image will [...]

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of AeroLife™ . All opinions are 100% mine. One day humans will no longer need to eat foods or drink liquids in order to receive their proper daily nutrition. Does that sound like a crazy idea? The AeroLife air-based nutrition system makes me believe a [...]

There's been some interest here at The Gadgeteer in standing desks.  Standing while you work offers great health benefits, and many desk-bound workers could benefit from being able to stand while they work.  There are many solutions that allow you to work as you stand, but most of them seem to involve replacing conventional desks [...]

For us road warriors, fitting in a workout while away from home can be difficult.  Hotel gyms vary widely in their usefulness, and just plain finding the time for fitness - either while traveling or at home - can be challenging.   Only Bodyweight, a web-based, customizable, exercise program that uses bodyweight-only exercises, might help solve [...]

If you suffer from SAD (seasonal affective disorder) or from jet lag, you may have considered light therapy.  Most light therapy devices I've seen are banks of lights that you must sit in front of for periods of time, and you may feel you don't have the time to devote to this therapy.  The Re-Timer [...]

No one would ever mistake me for an athlete; nevertheless, I was intrigued by the Mio Alpha Heart Rate wrist watch from Mio Global because I've been attempting to get in better shape.  Anything to help me prolong my  life is a good thing, and in conjunction with my Fitbit and Aria devices, I figured [...]

I reviewed the Withings original WiFi Body Scale back in 2010 and have been using it almost daily ever since. I like how it records my weight so that I can see trends using my Android smartphone or iOS device. Withings has recently announced a new model called the Smart Body Analyzer. Priced at $149.99, [...]

I felt it was time for a quick followup on my original Joyetech e-cigarette review.  I've now been almost six months cigarette-free, that's approximately 4500 cigarettes I haven't smoked!  So no 4000+ nasty chemicals, a huge saving in money, my taste has returned, I'm feeling way healthier and my clothes (and I) don't stink !

As an adult I realize that it is prudent to take care of your body so that it lasts as long as possible, but intentions are easier than practice.   Motivation is the issue, and that's where two devices from fitbit, the One and Zip,  can help you keep track of your progress and hopefully lead [...]

Jawbone UP – Take 2

Jawbone Up

The exercise band/pedometer/calorie-counter market is growing and growing, and Jawbone's first foray into the market created quite a stir. Much is the pity it was for the wrong reasons. Due to design faults, Jawbone, better known for their speakers and headsets, recalled the first model after a short time on the market.  Their new and improved [...]

Are you feeling guilty about everything you ate yesterday for Thanksgiving? Yeah me too... especially because all I did after dinner was sit around visiting with relatives. I didn't move much at all, which isn't good. Pedometers and activity trackers have become more and more popular in the past couple of years because they show [...]

When was the last time you wished you had a bathroom scale that you could take with you everywhere you go? If the answer to that question is anything but never, you need to go eat a cheeseburger and get over it. But I'm not judging. Ok maybe a little. ;) For those of us [...]

It's been a long day at the office, school, factory, chain gang, (insert your job here) and all you want to do is go home and have your significant other rub your feet. If you don't have an SO or your SO refuses to touch your little piggys, the OSIM uSqueeze may be the next [...]

Let's face it, working out is not fun. Those of you that think it is, are just crazy because working out has fried your brain. For us normal (aka lazy) folks, we know the real truth. Working out is never going to be as much fun as sitting on our LazyBoy recliner watching The Game [...]

I have my thermostat set to go down to 68 degrees at night because I sleep better when it's cool. When I was asked if I would be interested in reviewing the PolarPillow,   I was intrigued by their claims that it would keep my head cool for hours without the need for refrigeration, batteries or water.
