A late April announcement reveals that Google and leading global wearables brand Fitbit are partnering to innovate and transform the digital health and wearables niche. The collaboration aims to increase positive health outcomes and provide effective consumer and enterprise health solutions.
Philips has set the goal to improve the lives of 3 billion people per year by 2025, and part of the way that they hope to achieve this goal is by bridging the gap between consumer and professional health. To that end, at the IFA GPC, Philips’s Liat Ben-Zur talked about the importance of healthy sleep.
One of the best fitness and sleep trackers I’ve ever reviewed, the Motiv Ring, has just become even better. Starting today, Motiv adds integration with Alexa, you can buy it on Amazon, and there’s even good news about Android beta testing!
Brooks Running has always been at the forefront of high tech sneakers, and now they’ve come out with the first voice-enabled running speaker. The PureFlow 7.5 packs in motivational light sensors with a one-of-a-kind virtual running assistant named MILES (Motivational Intelligence Light Encouragement System).

You need a Motiv Ring.
I wish I’d had the Reliefband 2.0 all the times I’ve had to deal with motion sickness. Examples? I get queasy when I ride in the backseat of a car and cool air isn’t blowing directly on me. I once lost my breakfast and had to quit early while on an all-day deep-sea fishing trip in Aruba; ugh, choppy water.
I have a very specific set of requirements for headphones: They need to be budget friendly, sweat proof, fit my ears, and they need to stay put. This seems like a relatively simple list, but finding headphones that adhere to all four is remarkably tough. Earbuds don’t fit my ears right, and over the ear headphones get sweaty easily.
Here at Gear Diary, we know that your gear extends beyond just your smartphone and tablet. Once in a while, you sometimes like to get outside and see the sun, as you’ve heard it’s quite nice. Or maybe you know someone who does this thing called “exercise”, and you need some gift ideas.
As the holidays get closer, people start to look for tech gadgets to put on their wish lists or buy for others. Often, they prioritize gifts that help break bad habits or promote better ways of living for users.
