The idea of a pedometer type device built into your shoes isn’t a new one-Nike used to build little slots for the iPod/Nike+ sensor into their running shoes. Altra, however, has taken that to a whole new level with the Altra IQ, using Bluetooth sensors in the heels to measure your speed, footstrike, distance, and cadence!
“Hey, nice watch!”, I heard yet again today. That watch happens to be the Misfit Phase, a connected combination watch and fitness tracker that can count steps, distance, calories, and light as well as restful sleep. With the Misfit app on your iOS or Android device, you can easily keep track of how you are doing.
Whether you are an experienced, well-seasoned traveler or a person who travels just a few times a year, keeping your critical information handy and organized is essential. In my career, I’ve logged well over 2 million miles in the air, and if there is one thing I’ve learned, having all of your boarding passes, passport and frequent travel cards in…
I have a soft spot for gear that works with the Withings app; I’ll admit it. I lost 43 much-needed pounds while using the Withings app in conjunction with their Smart Body Analyzer scale, and I track my nightly sleep with their excellent Aura Connected Clock. So when offered the chance to review the Withings Steel HR, I gladly accepted.
One of the complaints I’ve heard many times about smartwatches is that they’re too thick, too large, or they look too masculine. That’s understandable, especially when the one complaining isn’t a larger person. Options have been somewhat limited for those who’d prefer a less massive watch with smart features, but now there’s Ticwatch, and it’s surprisingly impressive.
I love being barefoot. I work out barefoot, and in the spring and fall I wear Vibram FiveFingers when I need shoes and flip-flops in the summertime. While being barefoot is free, minimal shoes tend to be really, really expensive, as well as really polarizing in appearance. Fitkicks Shoes handily solves one of these issues!
WELT is the world’s smartest wellness belt on the market, and after the announcement at last year’s CES, it’s certainly going to be worth checking out what was once just a prototype and has come along a year later.
As I have previously posted, I’m a fan of Active Edge products. I started as a skeptic but my personal experience has turned me into someone who wears one of their products on a daily basis. I was thrilled when they came out with the Active Edge Leather Mariner. It took the Active Edge technology and packaged it into something…
Back at CES 2016, Digitsole released the world’s first auto-lacing smart shoe; so, how do they plan on outdoing themselves this year? The answer is simple: Make a collection of smart shoes! Effective today, Digitsole has announced over ten new models of their Digitsole smart shoes, including a woman’s high-heel show with telescopic tech, as well as a smart running…
I have been a fan of slim front pocket style wallets for some time now. Once you get used to a compact way to carry your cards and cash, it’s impossible to go back to a bulkier setup. It feels like there’s an infinite number of styles in slim wallets.
About 6 months after I purchased an Apple Watch, I stopped wearing it. While I’ve missed the convenience of wrist notifications, I never got comfortable with wearing what amounted to a microscopic and hobbled iPhone on my wrist. I prefer a more classic wristwatch style, but I also appreciate something smart; enter, the Engineered by HP Coach Bleecker Smart Watch.
It seems like it was ages ago when I first wrote about saving money by purchasing prescription eyeglasses online, and since then I have taken advantage of the savings many times. I wanted to bring one site to your attention, as you might not have yet tried them: SmartBuyGlasses.
If you have an Apple Watch, then you might be a huge fan of their silicone wrist straps that come included with the popular smartwatch. But what if you wanted something a little bit nicer but with a similar feel? Well, you might be in luck.
It’s easy to forget that with so many smartwatches available, there are still plenty of people who simply want to wear a watch that looks good and tells the time. But finding that watch doesn’t mean you need to give up your geeky edge; the Citizen Eco-Drive Watch line manages to roll true greek-credibility into a beautiful not so “dumb-watch”.
I’ve been wearing a Misfit Ray, and while it’s one of the prettiest and useful fitness trackers I’ve worn, I still wear a watch because I’m old-fashioned and like to wear one. With the introduction of the Misfit Phase Hybrid Smartwatch, I can have a fashionable analog watch combined with the Misfit technology I’ve come to appreciate.
It got cold here in New Jersey last week. Fortunately, I was armed with a review sample of Tavik’s new Interface system. This isn’t just a jacket. And it isn’t just a series of outerwear. No, the Tavik Interface system is truly an outerwear system That offers a ton of features and is ready for pretty much any weather.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve had the opportunity to check out Nomad’s Horween Leather Collection Lightning Wallet for iPhones, and it has saved me on more than one occasion!
If you didn’t make it to CE Week last week, then you missed a great series of panels, including mine on Robots, Printers, and Games that featured Davin Sufer, CTO of WowWee; Kilian Saekel, Founder of A-Champs; and Max Bouge, Co-Founder and CEO of Wobbleworks — best panel ever!

Dyson, a brand synonymous with high-end vacuum cleaners, fans, and humidifiers, has turned their focus to personal care products. Four years and $71 million dollars later, today they have announced the Supersonic Hair Dryer.
I’m always on the lookout for a fashionable backpack that is comfortable to wear, holds all my gear, and that doesn’t weigh too much when empty (it really matters when you’re packing a lot of gear). The Moshi Helios came in right before my trip to the IFA Global Press Conference, so it got a trial by fire.
