Activity trackers seem to be gaining in popularity these days, and with a fair number of different models to choose from in the market, it looks set to be even more confusing in the future. However, here is a simple activity tracker that you might want to pick up along the way, which comes in the form of the Jawbone UP MOVE. This is a new, easy-to-use activity tracker which would do its bit to help you lose that bit of spare tyre around the waist – all the while enjoying yourself as you sweat buckets.
Smartphones, smart homes, smart cars, heck, even helmets look set to receive the smart moniker this time around. I am referring to the LifeBEAM smart cycling helmet, which is touted to be the first of its kind in the world. LifeBEAM is an old hand at developing bio-sensing technology, where this new LifeBEAM Helmet happens to be the second version of a successful Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. In fact, the LifeBEAM Helmet has gone through a re-engineering process in order to deliver aerospace-grade heart rate and calorie consumption measurements without the need for a chest strap, making it extremely convenient in this manner.
Activity trackers as well as GPS enabled timepieces are extremely niche market products, and Polar is a company that has just rolled out their Polar M400 GPS training watch that comes with the ability to track your activity all round the clock. Wha makes the Polar M400 so special for runners (or basically anyone who is willing to get engaged in a healthy and active lifestyle) would be the fact that it has a slew of products and apps which will ultimately help one to understand one’s body, letting you get fitter – in a faster time period too, of course.
We are quite addicted to our mobile devices. Checking the weather, social media, playing games, or just reading up anything and everything on the Internet is going to suck down our battery. More often than not, we have our phones hooked up to a backup battery, or plugged into a wall. Our phones come with us everywhere, because there’s literally an app for just about every situation you can think of.
Some of us do take our cycling a whole lot more seriously than the other people, and for good reason, too. After all, we took up cycling not only to help reduce our overall carbon footprint, but we would also like to get in shape – at the same time take in all the breathtaking beauty that nature has can offer. Having said that, just timing one’s bicycle ride is not good enough anymore these days in a performance oriented society, which is why Pyle Audio has come up with what they call the PSBCG90 Smart Bicycling Computer.
