In my attempt to ward off the “quarantine 15[pounds]”, I converted a section of my basement into a home gym consisting of a treadmill, dumbbells, and a smart TV. But after nine months, I realized I needed something new to reinvigorate my workouts. After much research, I chose the Echelon Smart Connect Bike EX-5, and I could not be happier!
I recently reviewed the Zepp E Circle, one of the most gorgeous and functional health-centric watches available. Zepp has already added another watch to their line — the Zepp Z. Made from a single block of polished titanium alloy with more of a traditional men’s watch design, the Zepp Z has a classic style that is loaded with smart features and intelligence-assisted fitness tracking.
TCL is set to have a very eventful IFA showing with new products, including two tablets, a senior-focused smartwatch, true wireless earphones, and an exciting new technology to look forward to on future products. There’s a lot to discuss, so let’s jump right in!
Most of us are learning to navigate at-home workouts these days. You can go super minimal with a bodyweight workout, or trick your garage out better than the neighborhood gym. But working out at home also involves finding the drive to push, and the skill to get your form dialed in properly. The Carbon Trainer Smart Mirror aims to solve that gap!
Are you a smartwatch holdout? Maybe you can’t bring yourself to spend significant cash on an extension of your phone on your wrist, or you just love the thrill of bargain hunting for digital watches. Either way, head to the Misfit online store RIGHT NOW because they have an absolutely insane sale!
Xiaomi may not be the first brand that people in the US think of for smartphones, but they are ranked at #4 worldwide behind Samsung, Huawei, and Apple. Their smartphones have garnered praise from stateside reviewers for having excellent cameras, best-in-class features, and, most importantly, affordability. But Xiaomi makes more than just smartphones; they also sell home, health, and lifestyle products that include routers, fitness bands, LED desk lamps, air purifiers, and electric scooters, to name just a few.
The current pandemic has upended just about everything we once considered “normal.” Gyms are off-limits, but working out is an excellent way to reduce anxiety. Like, say, the kind of anxiety you might feel about being in month 4 (4,000?) of a global pandemic. Hyfit Gear 1 aims to bring your workouts home, far away from sweaty people*.
Since moving to Android, I have been searching for an excellent smartwatch solution. Battery life has been an annoyance in most smartwatches I have tried; charging every night gets kind of old. I recently had the opportunity to try out the Amazfit T-Rex, and some of my concerns have been addressed with an affordable watch.
No one knows what else 2020 has in store for us (so far, we’ve had a pandemic, murder hornets, and loons with a taste for eagle heart). Working out at home seems safe from all of those, and it’s making the cost to benefits of a system like Tonal a lot more attractive. Bonus — now, Tonal can work with your Apple Watch to keep an eye on your heart rate!
In the new world of “social distancing,” the gym is closed, and we’re all figuring out how to work out at home. It’s hard to get motivated if you’re not used to working out alone in your living room while binge-watching Chopped. Ergatta has a solution in their connected WaterRower, offering games and curated workouts to make exercise fun!
We can all agree that movement is important. Unfortunately, if you have a desk job, it’s hard to keep your blood flowing. You can try a standing desk, which is still static. And most offices frown upon you sticking a treadmill under your desk. Enter Cubii Pro, which is the bottom half of an elliptical for under your desk or workspace.
Waterfield has been on a roll lately and released a number of excellent new products. A company that initially made carry solutions for tech, they have branched out in a huge way. A case in point is the new Waterfield Bootcamp Gym Bag. It is all Waterfield, and it looks great.
Health, fitness, and tech are an interesting mix. On the one hand, basic biology hasn’t changed since well before the first phone was invented. On the other, as technology improves rapidly, there’s always a new way to spin getting into shape.
Another CES has come and gone, and as we have in the past, we’ve sorted through hundreds upon hundreds of products to bring you the ones we thought were the most exciting, useful, disruptive, or clever. Take a look at our Best of CES 2020 award picks, and see what you think!
Attempting to be more active doesn’t require much, but what if I told you the one item that people fail to include when they start going to the gym again is a solid pair of socks?
With Christmas just a few days away, chances are you may need a few more gifts but don’t want to risk heading to the mall to stand in long lines. Here are a few products that you should consider checking out that will arrive even earlier than Santa expected.
As a guy whose sister loved jumping rope, I’ve always watched in amazement, but honestly, I never got it. Then I turned thirty, found out my metabolism wasn’t what it was and looked for the best ways of burning calories without running nowhere on a treadmill. Surprisingly I found out 15 minutes of jumping rope could effectively burn 300 calories.
2019 is quickly zipping by, and you know what that means — the holiday season is now upon us! If you’re now faced with trying to figure out what to get for the people on your gift-giving list, take a look at these items we’ve rounded up; we have something for everyone and for every budget!
I spent the summer swimming laps in our pool as often as the weather permitted. The water is nice. The swimming is boring. Most days, I would take one of my UE Boom speakers outside and fire up the tunes. It made the swim less boring but wasn’t optimal. I wish I had the Aftershokz Xtrainerz wireless MP3 headphones.
I’ve been pretty irresponsible with my diet the past few months, resulting in fewer selfies, guilt over terrible eating habits, and stress from various things. Constantly telling myself: I’m going to get back in shape, I’ve tried everything, and then I found Freeletics.
The Activ5 was first announced way back at CES 2017 as the “tiny gym in your pocket.” While the slogan is fantastic, there’s only one question I really have — can it actually work?
