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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
