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.
Some weeks ago Tekkima, a new clothing company, reached out to see if we wanted to take a look at one of their jackets. “Why not?” I said. A few days later, the Tekkima Overland arrived. I was amazed by how light it was. Then I put it on and was even more amazed how warm and comfortable it is.
When I first began in the rabbinate, I wore a suit every day. That meant six and sometimes seven days a week were spent in a dress shirt, tie and suit. Those days are long gone, but I still wear a suit a few days a week. That’s where the Collar Stay Punch Raina got me for Hannukah comes in.
When I think of Casio watches, I think of the old school digital watches. But their catalog of timepieces goes much deeper, and their iconic G-Shocks are far more than just what you see in department store displays.
Among the many headphones and wireless speakers that we saw at Monster’s CES booth, was a small display with three pairs of truly wireless in-ear headphones. They were all similar in style, but one set was aimed towards work-outs. The other two sets were what we were eyeing, though; one look at the Monster Airlink Elements, and we were smitten.
It may not keep you up at night, but many of us are concerned about how our old electronics are affecting the environment. Fortunately, Dell and jewelry Nikki Reed have teamed up to come up with a new use for old Dell electronics – and that is to recycle them into jewelry.
Misfit is popular for their simple yet fashionable smartwatches, and a lot is to be said about their latest release, the Misfit Path.
It is a sad commentary on our society that so many companies are working to find ways to incorporate self-defense products into everyday life. We’ve seen tasers built into phone cases, discreet pepper sprays, and all sorts of apps that alert your loved ones if you aren’t home/at your destination by a set time. Most of the time the pitches make complete sense. Then there’s the Invi bracelet, which allows you to skunk your attacker.
Say goodbye to botched dye jobs, because those are about to become a thing of the past. Designed to work within the confines of a professional salon, Henkel’s Schwarzkopf Professional SalonLab ecosystem scans your hair, analyzes it, and then its Customizer machine pops out the perfect bottle of shampoo or color — customized for your specific hair type and condition.
Distil Union makes great wallets. I’ve reviewed a bunch and use one every single day. Now the company has released two sunglass designs. I received the Distil Union MagLock Folly Sunglasses for review. These aren’t any sunglasses though. They frames are unbreakable. The polarized lenses are good for your eyes. And, thanks to magnets, they’ll hang around for a while.
We all know at least one person who is nearly impossible to shop for, whether it’s because they usually buy everything that they need when they see it or because they answer “I don’t know” when you gently probe them for things they might need. That’s okay, we are here to help!
You know how I can tell smartwatches have officially hit the mainstream? I showed a coworker the Fossil Q Grant, and she attempted to tap the glass, thinking it was a touchscreen along the lines of the Android Wear powered smartwatches that Fossil has been marketing.
If 2018 is the year you have determined will be the time when you get yourself back in shape, two items that you should put on your wish list are the Nokia Steel Activity and Sleep Watch and the Nokia Body Cardio Scale.
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.
I recently reviewed the leather Nomad Modern Strap. It’s a lovely way to dress up your Apple Watch. If, however, I am going to wear a nice watch, I’m likely to choose to wear the Movado Raina gave me on the day of our wedding. For my Apple Watch, I’m using the Nomad Sport Strap; it looks and feels great.
I test a lot of gadgets and gear for this site, and none of them have received the compliments or interest that the Original Grain “The Barrel” watch has. It doesn’t tell me when I have a call, or buzz me for texts, or vibrate uncontrollably when I haven’t visited Facebook in 20 minutes. It does two things: tells time, and looks good doing it.
One of the best features of the Apple Watch is the amazing assortment of straps available. There are so many options that pretty much anyone can find one to fit their style and taste. Our friends at Nomad sent two for review. The first, the Nomad Modern Strap, is a beautiful leather strap that is classy as classy can be.
Who doesn’t love (or look good) in a fab pair of sunglasses? I was recently sent a pair of Maui Jim limited edition Vinylize Hula Blues sunglasses, and for what might seem to be (at first) a simple product, they are full of surprises.
At the beginning of every summer, I find myself facing one problem: sunglasses. It seems like every winter I manage to find them when I don’t need them, however when it’s time to head to the beach they are nowhere to be found.
Minimalism is in, and one of the best places to start scaling back on all the crap you own (or carry) is in your own back pocket. Rather than carrying a wallet stuffed with bills, receipts, cards, and who knows what else, you could be carrying a PITAKA New, a magnetic modular Carbon Fiber Wallet.
Nothing says summer like a new pair of shades. If you’re looking for a great pair of American-made luxury sunglasses, look no further than STATE Optical Co. They are super high quality, beautifully designed, and made in Chicago. Fighting against notorious eyewear mega-corporations like Luxottica, STATE Optical is a breath of fresh air in a crowded market.
