They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. Likewise, you shouldn’t judge a massage gun by the initial impression. I was skeptical about the Addaday BioZoom Edge massage gun when I first unboxed it; the Edge was bulky and heavy compared to some of the more svelte massagers I’ve encountered in the past, and I didn’t think it would stack up given how large it was. That skepticism was before I gave it a full test run, though! Will Bluetooth and a powerful motor overcome the bulkiness? Read on to find out!Read More

We reviewed a massage gun; then, we reviewed a heated foam roller. Now, we’re reviewing a fusion of both, the SKG F5 Massage Gun with heat! It’s a massage gun with a heater on one end, so you can pummel your muscles into submission, then apologize to them with a little warmth!
Recovery is a key part of getting in shape. It’s when your body is resting that your muscles rebuild stronger than before. That’s why massaging and foam rolling are so important, but ever try to lug a foam roller on a trip? They’re a little bulky for travel. The Vertiball Precision Massager is a portable way to massage sore muscles without taking up space in your suitcase that you needed for clean shirts! Do you need one? Read on to learn more!
Ask any personal trainer, and they’ll tell you the best item you can have in your home for recovery is a foam roller. There might be (there will be) moments where you’re cursing the demons who forged such a torturous item, but foam rolling is a big part of keeping your body healthy and happy after a hard workout. They can be as simple as a cylinder of foam, or they can be studded with textures to dig into each knot. The new MedRock HotRock Foam Roller brings the heat to the foam rolling experience!
Anyone who exercises regularly knows that recovery is a key part of improving. You can’t push forever; sometimes, your body needs to heal. Massages are great, but between covid and the cost, most people aren’t opting for weekly in-person massages, and massage chairs are a luxury suited for the Brookstone in your local mall, not necessarily your living room. Enter the Fishda Double Heads Massage Gun, which offers a way to pummel your muscles into submission without also destroying your wallet or disrupting your home decor!

They’ll provide you with a way to rock out to music, but also be able to hear more easily in a crowded restaurant. In theory, great. In practice…well, read on.
I recently reviewed the Zepp E Circle, one of the most gorgeous and functional health-centric watches available. Zepp has already added another watch to their line — the Zepp Z. Made from a single block of polished titanium alloy with more of a traditional men’s watch design, the Zepp Z has a classic style that is loaded with smart features and intelligence-assisted fitness tracking.
If someone were ever to ask me if I would use a cotton ear swab more than once, my answer would be, “of course not.” If someone asked if I’d be willing to try a reusable ear swab that reduced harmful waste and its impact on our plant, my answer would be, “maybe?” And then I received the LastObject LastSwab.
Zepp has just revealed its new line of fashionable smartwatches, the Zepp E, which uses AI algorithms to help its wearers better monitor their well-being. The Zepp E has a sleek 3D curved bezel-less design, and it is available with either a round or square watch face. But the Zepp E is set to be more than yet another fitness and sleep-tracker, it will also use AI to give the wearer actionable insights to help regulate their physical and mental well-being.
Most of us are learning to navigate at-home workouts these days. You can go super minimal with a bodyweight workout, or trick your garage out better than the neighborhood gym. But working out at home also involves finding the drive to push, and the skill to get your form dialed in properly. The Carbon Trainer Smart Mirror aims to solve that gap!
If you’ve already got a collection of protective and comfortable face masks, then you might still want something a little more fashionable for those times when a solid color seems too drab. Some of these are masks that I have bought for myself or family, and some are ones I have saved to purchase later on. I’ve done the research, let’s have a look.
