As the holidays get closer, people start to look for tech gadgets to put on their wish lists or buy for others. Often, they prioritize gifts that help break bad habits or promote better ways of living for users.
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.
It’s been a few years since I have been able to really self-identify as a runner. I still love running, but after two knee surgeries, my left knee is less enthused. I am always an optimist, though, and eagerly try every new running shoe we get offered, hoping to find one that works…and Brooks seems to have come through in…
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.
The Dreampad pillow made an appearance on Shark Tank last night, but the “smart” pillow didn’t get a deal. Yes, the valuation of the deal was insane but, more than that, the Sharks didn’t understand that this isn’t a simple “pillow with a speaker inside. ” No, the Dreampad is something far more advanced. I have one and love it.
I have a love/hate relationship with essential oils. I know they can be soothing and relaxing, but often when they’re run through a diffuser for a long period of time I get a headache. We were offered the chance to review the KININ personal aromatherapy pens, which have a different approach to aromatherapy, so I thought it was worth a…
When we received the pitch to review Quip, I immediately volunteered while thinking, “These guys are way too excited about toothbrushes!” Now that I’ve spent some time with Quip, I still stand by that — they’re way too excited about toothbrushes — but the bright spot here is that their excitement has created a truly excellent product and ecosystem!
Kickstarter is a fantastic service that brings together inventive and creative ideas with an audience who chooses whether to invest in the concept. It’s a concept that helps bring to life some ideas that never would see the light of day if it weren’t for the financial investments by the online audience.
Whether you are trying to lose weight or simply enjoy making your own smoothies at home, the new NutriBullet Balance can help. Paired with the NutriBullet Balance App, which serves as your virtual nutritionist, you’ll get precisely perfect and healthy smoothies every time.
The scale is one of those household appliances most people seem to love to hate. It’s useful, but it’s sort of like Schroedinger’s scale: it can boost your ego or break your heart every time you step onto it. Nokia wants to make the scale a bit more useful and helpful, even if it can’t always give good news!
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.
One of the bothers that comes with getting older is that you’ll likely have to add at least a few medications to your daily routine. Whether you are keeping up with your own meds or those taken by an elderly relative, the PillDrill aims to make the process of remembering to take those medications as painless and streamlined as possible.
It seems that many (if not most) vaporizers are focussed for consuming one particular herb to the exclusion of others, so it was refreshing to learn about the Solo II. Not only is this vaporizer able to heat dry herbs for vaping, it can also heat dry herbs and essential oils for inhaling.
If you and your spouse are looking for a great way to spice things up, you should really check out the Eva Stimulator for couples.
Other than a few pimples and the typical blackheads, I never really had to deal with teen acne. Fast forward to my 20s, 30s, 40s, and now entering my 50s; while I still have relatively good skin, I deal with hormonal breakouts all the time. All. The. Time. The FOREO ESPADA is supposed to help, but does it? Can it?
It is not uncommon for one person to now have a smartphone, a tablet, a smartwatch and wireless headphones. All share one thing in common — they all need to be charged. That’s where the Satechi Smart Charging Stand comes in! For under $35 it keeps all of them charged and your desk or nigh table neat and organized.
Do you wonder about the quality of the air you breathe in your home or office? Awair Glow gives you a way to track the temperature, humidity, CO2, and other chemicals in your room, but it also has another trick — it can power on smart and non-smart devices to do something about it.
Messaging apps like Slack revolutionized long-distance and group communication by making text messaging possible over the Internet. Now we can text and video chat with people anywhere in the world without having to pay exorbitant fees to a phone company. Messaging technology has dramatically improved communications for businesses and entrepreneurs in nearly every industry except one: health care.
Welp, this is a new one for me! Newly launched on Indiegogo, Lovenuts is an acorn-shaped flashlight and mini nightlight that’s also a connected personal vibrator. Designed to be innocent looking and to have more than one purpose, Lovenuts is a stealthy little guy that is designed to easily travel with you.
Brooks Cascadia trail shoes have long been seen as some of the best on the market. The soles are designed for traction, they feature a rock plate for extra foot protection, and they’re cushioned enough that you won’t be in agony every time you step on a root. But Brooks just upped the game big time with their new REI…
Do you live out in the country or off-the-grid? Have you ever had to contemplate buying, installing, and using one of the many composting toilets on the market? If so, then this post is for you!
