3 Ways to Keep Your Phone Safe During Your Workout

Our phones are incredible devices with so much technology packed into them that it’s hard to find a use for it at times. However, one of the most popular uses of a smartphone nowadays is to use it as a fitness assistance. Newer phones feature all kinds of fantastic features such as heart rate sensors, and there are countless apps that can help you control your calorie intake and also motivate you to exercise.

Sadly, taking your phone out for a jog or using it at the gym can sometimes invite some unwanted problems. For instance, it’s easy to drop your phone during a run, it might be stolen if you carry it around everywhere and there’s a good chance that you might even lose it. So here are three useful tips that will help you keep your phone safe during your workouts.

New Tech to Power Up Your Workout

According to Apple’s website, the Apple Watch has a battery life of up to 18 hours, but if you read the fine print that only includes using the apps and Bluetooth for slightly over an hour and occasionally checking the time throughout the day. Most wearable technology users are utilizing their products more than a few hours a day and battery life is a concern. A new charging case from myCharge, called PowerGear Sport, can assist by providing up to ten times extra battery power and includes a built-in USB port, making the case compatible with various wearables. Not only can the sleek case store and protect the wearable as its charging, but also any extra interchangeable bands. {Product provided for review/feature consideration}

Unglue Your Kids From Their Devices with KoalaSafe!

Do you have kids? Are they constantly on their devices? My kids are obsessed with playing games {and for my teen it's all about social media}, so their eyes are constantly glued to their iPad and Chrome Books. When the hubby or  I let them know screen time is up, we're suddenly transformed into super villains and met with a cacophony of moans, groans, and whines. I used to wish I could just turn the internet off, and now with KoalaSafe, I can. {Product provided for review/feature consideration}

Don't Let Your Jewelry Make You Sick! Jewelry Hygiene and the AquaSonic Wave

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that each year 76 million people get sick, more than 300,000 are hospitalized, and 5,000 Americans die as a result of foodborne illnesses alone. When factoring in the cases of illness from viruses and flu related sickness, these numbers grow exponentially. From constant hand washing and sanitizing to flu shots, the American public goes to great lengths to avoid getting sick. Even with all of these preventative measures, there is a major source of bacteria that people wear on their bodies every day that has been completely overlooked until now: jewelry.

I'm not gonna lie, when I received this press release, my first instinct was to pass it by, but then I noticed that the image they used to illustrate their point looks just like the primary setting on my engagement ring. So it piqued my interest and I decided to share!

Techie Thursday: Philips Soundshooter Portable Speaker

At first glance, the Philips Soundshooter (in dark green) looks like a grenade, but I’ve been testing it for over a month now, and let me assure you, the only thing explosive is the sound. Skeptical at first, due to its size, I was hesitant as the Apple store salesman handed it to me, but after I got it home and connect it to my iPhone 5 via Bluetooth, I must admit, I was impressed. Now keep in mind, if you’re looking for a speaker to vibrate your entire house, this is not the one for you, but if you just need something that can deliver portability, good sound quality, and impress your friends, the Soundshooter by Philips is a great option.

Let There Be Light-James Bond Style!

As bright as it is sleek and beautiful, there is only one word that describes the Eon Classic flashlight right out of the box…blinding (literally)! Honestly, at first glance, I thought that the Eon Classic was going to be a lightweight contender. My first thought was “sure it’s pretty, but how can anything so small be effective?”

A Gadget Worthy of 007!

We’ve seen a lot of dud products come and go, but every now and then, a designer gets it right and produces something innovative enough to grab the attention of consumers. Whether it’s the newest phone that you just have to have the day it comes out, the shiny new car that takes your breath away, or the clearest and thinnest television that seems to put you right in the middle of the action, we all know when we see something we like, because we’re immediately lured in. The Cardsharp by Iain Sinclair is one of those products.
