Get fit with the G-Shock Move GBDH1000

I’ve reviewed a wider variety of fitness watches, and while I have my trusty favorite that I head out with most days, I’m always curious to see what else is out there in the market. More and more brands are figuring out how to plug a heart rate monitor into their watch, to varying degrees of success. One that looks to have it done right is the G-Shock Move GBDH1000.

See results in the mirror with the Carbon Trainer

While many of us aren’t headed back to the gyms just yet, there are certainly plenty of options to keep fit at home. You can of course head out for a jog, or try an at-home rower or bring a coach into your home with a giant display and weight rack. On the other hand, if you want something that goes up on the wall and is a bit less obtrusive, then have a look at the Carbon Trainer.

Get seen and stay safe with the Lumos Ultra

As a kid, the very idea of a bike helmet just sounded ludicrous. Times have changed, and I’ve always got one on my head when I’m on the bike – as much to protect my own noggin as to be an example for my kids. Sure, it’s not the speeds I was at on my motorcycle, but still – safety is safety. One of the latest creations brings some clever lighting to the mix and is going by the name of the Lumos Ultra.

Tune those tris with Tempo

Well, and any other number of muscle groups, we suppose. A few months back, we brought you word of a home setup rowing machine which seemed a fit for working out at home. While gyms are opening back up, maybe you’re not ready to actually go back – and I can’t blame you. Well, if you’re looking for some guided coaching and classes, perhaps Tempo could be of help.

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.

Quantify your workout – on the cheap – with the Polar H9

Given that we’re all stuck at home, you may be looking for inexpensive ways to go out and get some exercise. Now, you certainly don’t need a device to tell you whether or not getting out for a jog is a good idea. If you want to quantify that activity – via measuring your heart rate – the Polar H9 is one of the most inexpensive ways to do so.

During the CoronaVirus shutdown, Ergatta wants to help you stay healthy

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 sterilizes your water with UV

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!
