Go MilSpec in your workout with the Amazfit T-Rex Pro

Over on WWR, we’re used to seeing brands strike up partnerships with other companies or events for any number of reasons. When it comes to the smartwatch, or more specifically fitness watches, that doesn’t happen nearly as much. However, a new release – the Amazfit T-Rex Pro – has become an official partner of Spartan Race US.

Just released: The Polar Inspire 2 and Vantage M2

Introducing the Polar Verity Sense

When it comes to tracking your fitness, there’s no doubt that a heart rate monitor has become an important piece of technology. There are plenty of watches that now offer this sensor (such as my trusty Polar Vantage M), but if you wanted to add a HR sensor to your existing kit, you were limited to a chest strap – that is, until the Polar Verity Sense was released last month.

In my mind, it was not all that long ago that I reviewed the first version of the Alpina AlpinerX – but it was. Just about 2.5 years ago, to be precise. In the watch world that doesn’t necessarily mean a long lapse of time, but in the tech and gadget world, that’s a much different story.

Now Funding: The Newton-Rider helmet

We’ve seen a few different bicycle helmets hit the crowd-funding pages, and while I’m always intrigued, I’m also a bit wary. Buying a watch or a gadget, that’s one thing. But trusting your safety to some random company asking for your money on the internet? Well, that does give me some pause. Fortunately, for this new Newton-Rider helmet, it looks like they’ve passed some crashworthiness tests.

Introducing FitGrid

I don’t know about you, but for me, the pandemic has really changed my workout habits. It used to be that I’d head to the gym in the mornings before heading out on my morning commute. Well, those closed down for quite awhile, and I’m not quite ready to head back into one. Instead, I’ve taken up jogging. However, you may still be wanting to have the experience of instructor-led classes, and getting motivated in that way. If that’s the case, the recently-launched FitGrid might be worth checking out.

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.
