Another fitness band. But wait, this one is pretty cool. Misfit isn’t new to the game and already makes a great tracker with a pretty good sleep tracking algorithm. For me, sleep tracking is just as important as activity tracking. So what makes the Misfit Ray stand out? A stylish aluminum design that look more like jewelry than a...

When I think of Epson, I think of printers. Looks like Epson wants to change that with their latest product the Runsense SF-110, a GPS fitness tracking watch. The Epson Runsense SF-110 is merging the traditional fitness (running) tracking with a GPS for accurate location and distance information. The SF-110 measures calories burned, pace, time, laps, altitude, distance, steps, and more. Colors include black, green, and bright blue. The watch also synchs up with iOS and Android devices via the Epson Run Connect app. The best part is the...

Apparently the hottest mobile game of the hour (for iOS and Android) is Fallout Shelter by Bethesda. Bethesda’s Fallout Shelter has bypassed King’s Candy Crush Saga in revenue on the iTunes App Store. According to SuperData Research, Fallout Shelter has generated $5.1 million in just the first two weeks. I guess I will have to download it and give it a shot. Will keep you updated if it changes my life. ...

This post is aimed at the contractor or construction folks amongst us. Tools, and in this case batteries, tend to disappear at job sites. Whether the batteries are accidentally taken or are outright theft really doesn’t matter. Either way, you are out a very expensive and important battery. Enter the DeWalt 20V Max 2.0/4.0 Amp Bluetooth Batteries (DCB203BT and DCB204BT). These new bluetooth batteries pair with Apple and Android phones (and tablets) via a Tool Connect App. This allows the owner to control the batteries remotely...

Sena has been making great motorcycle helmet intercoms and entertainment systems for a while now. I currently own the SMH10D-11 set and really enjoy being able to have music streaming from my phone to the helmet. It is also quite handy for communicating with my friends via the intercom while on rides or taking phone calls. Sounds like a bad idea I know. The first 2 minutes of every phone call is me arguing with the person on the other end of the line. They never believe...

Finally, a heart rate monitor that will be both accurate and comfortable. Well, at least that is the promise of FitLinxx with their AmpStrip. Read on for details. ...

Apple always seems to be targeted for ridiculous reporting when they release new products. I believe that is because they have many competitors wanting to sling mud instead of compete on innovations alone. Not to mention there are just the Apple haters. It happens.  Which ever camp you live in (Apple iOS or Android) it really doesn’t matter. Use what makes you happy. With that said, let’s see if the new Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge will get the same Bendgate media treatment for their phone. Not only does the Galaxy S6 Edge bend...

Choosing the right home/business monitoring camera is a daunting task. For most folks, a streaming WiFi camera with video/audio cloud storage is the quickest way to get up and running. Also, maintenance on this type of camera system is minimal when compared to other DVR systems. The Oco Streaming Camera System makes going from 0-60 incredibly quick and easy. Read on for a full review of the Oco camera.

There are so many home monitoring camera options available today, each with their own plusses and minuses. My hope is that the DropCam Pro ($199) could be my goto camera system for the home and small office. Read on for the DropCam Pro review to see if it hits the mark. ...

SkyBell is a smart video doorbell that allows users to see, hear, and talk with who is at your door. The SkyBell is relatively easy to install (video of the installation after the break) and connects to your wireless network. Once connected you download the iOS or Android application and will be alerted when anyone pushes your doorbell regardless of where you are. Imagine being able to answer the doorbell,...
