  • I love keeping fit and exercising, so a lot of these gadgets are things that I really like the look of. One of the things that I like the most are devices that keep track of how many calories you’re burning over the course of a day, as this means that you can go about your activities without thinking about it, and you can then balance the food that you eat later on the exercise that you have done, which is great. It means that I am able to both keep fit, and keep my weight stable at the same time, both of which are great things.

  • Wow, I’m impressed. I haven’t seen any of these devices before, although I have heard of the fitbit. I wasn’t sure exactly what it was, and now that I read about it, I’m interested, but I don’t have the type of device required. I wonder why they’ve made it so limited? The liquid leap is also interesting, so perhaps that would be a substitute for the fitbit.

    I absolutely love the idea of the smartmat, because I know form is important, and if someone is learning yoga from a video or television, they’re usually not getting the necessary feedback to know if they’re doing it correctly, which could lead to issues like back pain.

    If I were a bike rider, commuter or not, I would invest in the visijak commuter jacket. Actually, if I still walked the city streets, rather than living out in the country, I would also buy it. Great article, thanks for sharing so many interesting products.

  • Awesome blog! All the gadgets mentioned above look simply amazing… Fitness lovers like me are surely going to buy some of them… Thanks for sharing it…
