Spärkel Carbonator: Create Your Own Carbonated Drinks without Synthesized Chemicals or CO2 Tanks

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.



BESTEK M-Care Electronic Toothbrush Delivers Results at an Affordable Price

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.












Withings Pulse HR Updates a Favorite Fitness Tracker

If you like the Withings ecosystem, but you don’t want to wear a traditional watch (like their Steel and Steel HR line), you’ll be pleased that the Pulse has received a significant update. The new Withings Pulse HR takes everything you liked about the Pulse fitness band and bakes in all the 2018-updated goodness.



Getting (back) into Shape with Aaptiv

So I’ll have to admit, ever since I took my vows and got married back in July, I’ve been slacking off. I’ve told myself I’d get back in the gym and get my fitness on. But personal trainers are expensive. At least they were until I rediscovered Aaptiv.


G-Shock Goes Next Level with Fitness Tracking and More in the GBA-800

I haven’t watched American Horror Story: Apocalypse, but I’m assuming it’s relatively unrealistic. If they wanted to make it more realistic, the only thing left standing would clearly be Casio G-Shock watches. And probably Starbucks. But definitely G-Shocks. Casio has updated the already indestructible G-Shock line with the new GBA-800, which adds fitness tracking to general badassery.
