South Texas mosquitos are often the size of a pigeon and seem to be super hungry for human blood. I have used a Thermacell for hunting and outdoors for years. Their new Radius Zone Mosquito Repellent ($49.99) brings scent free, powerful protection with only one refill component and a rechargeable battery. Let’s see how it holds up to summer skeeters.
Everyone wants clean white teeth, but brushing isn’t enough to get you there on its own, and many are too lazy to floss regularly. Waterpik realized this and that is what led them to come out with the Sonic-Fusion – the world’s first toothbrush and flosser all-in-one.
Philips has set the goal to improve the lives of 3 billion people per year by 2025, and part of the way that they hope to achieve this goal is by bridging the gap between consumer and professional health. To that end, at the IFA GPC, Philips’s Liat Ben-Zur talked about the importance of healthy sleep.
My Waterpik is part of my morning and evening ritual. It’s so central to my routine that, when Raina and I are traveling, I, and my gums, really miss it. That’s why I was so eager to check out the Waterpik Sidekick Water Flosser. It’s great for home use, but it is also small enough to take on the go.
Brandless Online Grocery Shopping doesn’t offer frozen food, vegetables, fruit, or meat, but all the other food they sell is as healthy as possible, priced right, and downright tasty. They deliver your order right to your door, and with everything priced at $3, many of their items are priced far better than what I’m used to paying.
There was a strong showing of health-related gadgets at the IFA Global Press Conference this year, so the brand new Fitbit Versa was the perfect wearable to shine a light on. New to the Versa is the ability to track women’s health — including the ability to log period information, symptoms, and cycle dates. I think this is a first.
Buerer is a European company that’s been around for almost 100 years; their focus is health and well-being. At the IFA GPC, their Managing Director, Georg Walkenbach, mentioned that they currently have 12 apps and 60 connected devices. Georg mentioned several of their health-focused device and app combos, but the one I really took note of was their SleepQuiet app.
Do you carry around a metal water bottle, whether it is a Hydroflask, ThermoFlask, Kleen Kanteen or any other similar design? If you do, check your caps-if there are rubber gaskets, make sure to clean them before mold starts to build!
Who doesn’t love the thrill of watching one of your favorite acts live and in concert? But how often have you ended the evening with tinnitus — a buzzing in your ears that can take days to go away? Did you know that it’s possible to damage your ears so badly that the ringing never leaves? You need Loop Earplugs.
One of the best fitness and sleep trackers I’ve ever reviewed, the Motiv Ring, has just become even better. Starting today, Motiv adds integration with Alexa, you can buy it on Amazon, and there’s even good news about Android beta testing!
At CES, I served as a judge for Last Gadget Standing. One of the finalists was the Modius Headset. It particularly caught my interest because the presenters claimed that wearing this headset for 45 – 60 minutes a day over an 8-week period could significantly reduce your weight and body fat — without necessarily changing diet or exercise. Wait, what?!

What does your watch do? Notify you of emails? Buzz when you get a phone call? Track your steps? All that is great, but sometimes you just need a watch with more practical features. The kind that let you enjoy life beyond being tethered to a smartphone … that’s where the Casio Pro Trek comes in.
How much of your day is spent with your head bent over a screen? And how often have you awoken with a tweaked neck because your head was angled wrong as you slept on your side? It’s pretty obvious that most of us don’t give our necks the respect and care they deserve; the ComfortAdjust Pillow wants to help.
I drink coffee because I like the taste of it. If you handed me a cup of decaf but it was made from the most delicious coffee bean ever, I’d drink it happily. On the other hand, I’ve never been a huge gum chewer, except as a quick breath refresher or while descending in an airplane.
Sleep Is a precious commodity that’s taken for granted. It’s important, but it is far too easy to let it slide in favor of binging Netflix or stalking old high school classmates on Facebook. I’ve tried wrist based sleep devices in the past, but I tend to forget to check it or use the information it provides. SleepScore Max aims to change that with their one-two punch of an easy…
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.
If you’re looking for a last-minute gift for that special someone for Valentine’s Day, we’ve compiled another list of some great options that are great for the occasion.
Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too? Or rather, who says you can’t floss and whiten your teeth all at once? That is the concept behind Waterpik’s latest flosser, the Whitening Water Flosser.
As it becomes legal in increasingly more states to grow your own medicine, the people who would most benefit from doing so may be the least able to take advantage. The Cloudponics GroBox removes the guesswork from growing your medicine while keeping it inside your house and in a manageable space. The GroBox makes hydroponic farming accessible to everyone.
I used to do a lot of early morning runs when I was training for half marathons. Once, I was staying with my parents, and my mother ran into me as I was headed out while it was still dark. She looked over my reflective gear and the headlamp I had over my hat and remarked, “Be safe, you look like a lost miner.”
