A lot is going on in our world today. Regardless of how much we’d like things to go back to how they used to be, at the current moment, it’s best to protect yourself from the Coronavirus with a face mask when you step out of your front door. Why not do it with a reusable mask that’s just as comfortable as it is functional?

No one knows what else 2020 has in store for us (so far, we’ve had a pandemic, murder hornets, and loons with a taste for eagle heart). Working out at home seems safe from all of those, and it’s making the cost to benefits of a system like Tonal a lot more attractive. Bonus — now, Tonal can work with your Apple Watch to keep an eye on your heart rate!
I can’t imagine a world in which I couldn’t read anything put in front of me (assuming it was in a language I understood, of course), but for many people that is a reality.

Feet are incredibly important. That seems obvious, but it’s something people don’t always consider-if your feet have taken a beating, it impacts your knees, hips, and back… Enter Telic Recovery Footwear, designed to keep your feet happy after a long day of activity. We tested the Apres-Ski Recovery Boot, even though it’s been too warm for skiing this winter!
We can all agree that movement is important. Unfortunately, if you have a desk job, it’s hard to keep your blood flowing. You can try a standing desk, which is still static. And most offices frown upon you sticking a treadmill under your desk. Enter Cubii Pro, which is the bottom half of an elliptical for under your desk or workspace.
Health, fitness, and tech are an interesting mix. On the one hand, basic biology hasn’t changed since well before the first phone was invented. On the other, as technology improves rapidly, there’s always a new way to spin getting into shape.
Many people have trouble sleeping due to a racing brain. This racing mind is caused by increased activity of the frontal cortex of the brain. Ebb Therapeutics is debuting its first-of-its-kind technology at CES that promises to calm the racing mind and improving sleep.

As a guy whose sister loved jumping rope, I’ve always watched in amazement, but honestly, I never got it. Then I turned thirty, found out my metabolism wasn’t what it was and looked for the best ways of burning calories without running nowhere on a treadmill. Surprisingly I found out 15 minutes of jumping rope could effectively burn 300 calories.

I gave up Diet Cokes a few years ago, for many reasons. One of the things that helped me keep my resolve to stop drinking “DC”s was flavored carbonated water; I could still get that bubbly burn that I craved but without all of the artificial sweeteners, caffeine, and caramel food coloring. With the Spärkel Carbonator, I can now make my own flavored carbonated drinks at home.

I reject that old joke that goes, “How do you know the toothbrush was invented in Tennessee? Because otherwise, they’d have called it a TEETHbrush.” Aspersions against my home state aside, I’ve been blessed by some pretty good chompers with only one tiny cavity in 40+ years. So I was intrigued when I was offered the chance to try out the BESTEK Sonic Electronic Toothbrush. Follow along to see what I discovered.
