You can get casually fit with the Polar Unite

Right off the bat, I’ll put a disclaimer out there – I like the Polar products, and use a Polar Vantage M daily for tracking my jogging and bike riding (and the gym sessions, whenever that opens up again). The Polar Ignite was the first foray into a less intense watch, and now they’re back with the Polar Unite in that same vein.

You can keep an eye on your heart with the WearLinq eWave

To be perfectly frank, so can your doctor. Over the last year, we’ve been seeing more devices that move from just simply tracking your heart rate (like most fitness trackers and many smart watches) to having a device that can actually provide medical diagnostics. The Apple Watch was one of the first, and now the WearLinq eWave is aiming to be the most recent.

I’m guessing that most of us, at this point, have been long-missing from the gym. For some of us, that’s a conscious choice. For others, like myself, it’s a decision that was made for us (albeit a good one in the midst of this pandemic). If you’ve got some extra coin to spend, and want to get your row on in the comfort of your home, the Ergatta Rower is calling your name.

The Noerden Liz Bottle looks like a basic metal water bottle. But look closer, and you’ll notice a rechargable, electronic cap that uses a powerful UV-C lamp to sterilize water inside. I carried the LIZ bottle with me for a few weeks, and am happy to report that I’m certianly more hydrated!

Ironman? That’s a name I’ve not heard in a long time

At least, that’s the thought that crossed my mind when I received the news on this new watch. Back in my junior high days, it seemed like Timex Ironman watches were the absolute pinnacle of a “cool” watch. Time change, and while Timex has kept on ticking, the Ironman line hasn’t gotten the attention. They’re trying to change that now with the Timex Ironman R300.

Introducing the Polar H9

For most folks, simply tracking activity is enough for their fitness goals. Those looking to get a little more in-depth insights on their exercise might opt for any number of wrist-mounted devices with a HR sensor (like this one). Past that – or if you have a tracker you already like – you’re looking at something like a stand-alone heart rate strap. These – while offering great accuracy (because they’re, you know, right over your heart) – can tend to bring “pro” prices to the party. This is where the new Polar H9 is looking to shine.
