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.

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

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.

Introducing the Polar H9

For most folks, simply tracking activity is enough for their fitness goals.

It’s not vaporware – it’s the Misfit Vapor X

I’ve reviewed a number of fitness and smart watches over the years (in fact, I’ve got Polar’s latest in the works for a review), but Misfit is a brand I’ve just not managed to get a hold of. Will that change? Time will tell. However, if you want to get your hands on their latest, the Misfit Vapor X is currently up at a discount.

Go for a heart-healthy hike with the Casio ProTrek WSD-F21HR

Over at WWR, we’ve looked at a number of Casio ProTrek watches. In my eyes, if you’re on the hunt for an outdoors-focused watch with a lot of technical capabilities, the ProTrek lineup is the place to be. If you’re also fond of tracking your exertions, you’ve had to go for a fitness watch that also had GPS built in. That is, until the Casio ProTrek WSD-F21HR was announced.
