Do you have pets? Do you live in a dusty area? Do you have a smoker (or vaper) in your family? Do you have seasonal allergies? Are you or a family member an asthma sufferer? If you answered yes to any of those questions, then you would benefit by having an Oreck Air Response Air Purifier in your home.
Since most of us spend a third of our lives in bed, it only makes sense that what we sleep on and what we sleep in should be as comfortable as a favorite pair of shoes or as inviting as a favorite overcoat. Brooklinen is introducing their new Limited-Edition Linen Collection, which looks like it could easily become a favorite. The…
If you’ve been on the hunt for a great canteen, or a tumbler to carry with you daily, or even something to use for that Saturday afternoon out at the pool, look no further than Corkcicle. We reviewed a few of their products last year, so it’s only right we announce Corckcicle’s Waterman series.
Like it or not, we live in a dangerous world. Some dangers are obvious and some dangers are unseen.

Syncing with a companion app via Bluetooth, Wave can keep track of temperature, humidity, and radon levels in your home.
When it comes to heart rate training and sports, there’s Polar and then there’s everyone else. Polar has long been the gold standard for heart rate based training, and they’re extending that expertise into the world of all-day tracking as well with the Polar A370!
It’s a personal choice whether you’d rather vape from a pen-style vaporizer or a sub-ohm style, but if you prefer a smoother vaping experience with more intense flavor and bigger vapor clouds, using a sub-ohm vape may be right for you. If that piques your interest, then you should check out the HAUS Craft Collection Sub-Ohm Vape Mod Kit.
As a fan of good Kentucky Bourbon, one thing that I’ve always wanted to try out is a breathalyzer, so when I had the opportunity to test the AlcoMate Revo Personal Digital Breathalyzer test, I made it a mission to stay in on a Saturday and test out my new favorite gadget.
Several years ago, I reviewed the DaVinci Ascent Vaporizer. I found it to be extremely well made and easy to operate. The DaVinci IQ Precision Vaporizer is their newest offering; it’s all that the Ascent was and more. Sleek, easy to operate, solidly made, and now it can be controlled by a connected app.
I have to make an effort to drink water all day long. In the absence of some incentive, I tend to just forget, and then wonder why I feel like crap or am incredibly thirsty suddenly. I’ve tried flavor packets, sliced up lemons, and other things to make water more interesting, but they never seem to stick.
A few weeks ago, I read an article about how a young man by the name of Casey Bennett’s life was saved, courtesy of his Apple Watch in the midst of a car crash. His iPhone slid to a part of the car he could not reach, and with quick thinking, his Apple Watch’s SOS Emergency feature saved the day….
If you have problems with your shoulders and are always asking your spouse for a massage, chances are the Naipo Shoulder Massager with Shiatsu Kneading Pillow might be a product that should be in your shopping cart. Naipo sent over their Shoulder Massager for me to check out, and if there’s one gadget in my home that’s getting plenty of…
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!
There’s an enormous debate in the running world about how your feet should hit the ground. For a long time conventional wisdom said heel first, but in the last few years, there’s been a push towards a more natural forefoot-first style.
My husband snores. not all the time but sometimes, and if I don’t fall asleep before he does, his snoring can keep me awake. Kev’s had a sleep test (there’s no sleep apnea), and he’s tried various anti-snore devices to no avail. I’ve tried earplugs, but they block everything (like alarms); it’s better to use QuietOn Active Noise Cancelling Earplugs.
An ad* says you should use Febreze on household items you can’t wash — things like pet beds, couch cushions, curtains, throw pillows, and fluffy throw blankets. Here’s the thing, though — spraying a deodorizer on those items does nothing more than mask odors. If you want to deep clean these things, you can use the RAYCOP RS2 Fabric Purifier.
Todays’ wearable technology is being used to track a great many statistics related to fitness and health. Devices from Fitbit and Jawbone, for example, can be used to monitor heart rate, calories burned, total activity time and much more.
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.
Fitness trackers sound good on paper, but the reality is they only measure one tiny slice of fitness. Cardio and steps are important, but they aren’t a full picture. Humon is a new wearable that seeks to rectify that by measuring muscle endurance instead of steps, and it’s a pretty brilliant concept!
If you like the Click & Grow way of doing things, but you aren’t sure if you want to invest in their Herb Garden, then you might want to check out their new DIY Indoor Garden. At $29.99, it’s a great way to get started with indoor gardening! What do you get for $29.99? The kit includes “9 plant cups with…
At the start of 2017, Judie wrote a review of the OPCOM GrowBox hydroponic system. It lets her grow a variety of vegetables and herbs inside her home, and it is an impressive system; you can read her review here. At CES 2017, OPCOM introduced the GrowFrame; it looks amazing.
It’s easy to take clean water for granted — we just walk to the tap, turn it on and are rewarded with cool, clean, drinkable water. That isn’t the case for everyone in the world, though.
