The most common fitness trackers are worn on the wrist — either as a watch replacement or as a bracelet. But what if you like the watch you already own, or what if a bracelet doesn’t fit in with your style aesthetic? What if you still want to track your steps, sleep, and heart rate? 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.
It’s been a few years since I have been able to really self-identify as a runner. I still love running, but after two knee surgeries, my left knee is less enthused. I am always an optimist, though, and eagerly try every new running shoe we get offered, hoping to find one that works…and Brooks seems to have come through in…
I fly a lot, and because my ankles and feet tend to swell when I do, I always wear compression socks once I’m in the air. Lily Trotters recently surprised me with a sample of their Boston Blue “Course-it” compression socks. Because these socks are cute and they work, I want to tell you about them.
The Dreampad pillow made an appearance on Shark Tank last night, but the “smart” pillow didn’t get a deal. Yes, the valuation of the deal was insane but, more than that, the Sharks didn’t understand that this isn’t a simple “pillow with a speaker inside. ” No, the Dreampad is something far more advanced. I have one and love it.
Kickstarter is a fantastic service that brings together inventive and creative ideas with an audience who chooses whether to invest in the concept. It’s a concept that helps bring to life some ideas that never would see the light of day if it weren’t for the financial investments by the online audience.
Messaging apps like Slack revolutionized long-distance and group communication by making text messaging possible over the Internet. Now we can text and video chat with people anywhere in the world without having to pay exorbitant fees to a phone company. Messaging technology has dramatically improved communications for businesses and entrepreneurs in nearly every industry except one: health care.
For the hearing-impaired, communication can be difficult, especially when it involves someone who doesn’t know sign language. Even with the most obvious of signs, you’re still speaking a different language entirely. A new, relatively affordable glove may change that.
As a runner, I am always looking for new and cool ways to be more visible. At the same time, I look for things that are convenient, comfortable and don’t require me to do much thinking at 4 AM when I get up to go running, so I was immediately interested in the LumaGlo Crossbelt.
