For anyone with a baby or other dependant person something like this will make a hard life easier. Starting with the setup. This will work on your home Wi-Fi network or over the Internet the latter ideal for keeping an eye on the baby sitter.

721679 Homedics No Pain 3D Electric Pain RelieveNo Pain and iHeal

Both products are small, both products work to reduce or eliminate pain, the first called No Pain is a Tens device and anyone who has used one a few years ago cannot claim there is ‘no pain’, the second is even smaller and often used by physiotherapists.
Having reviewed scales, various other fitness and health products from Withings it seems logical to cover a blood pressure monitor linked like so many products they do to an App so you do not even need to note down the units readings.

This is not a GPS unit as some may think but a watch, a rather special watch that not only tells the time but can also give you your pulse rate at any time by the simple press of a button, no chest band just wear the watch on your wrist.

A very interesting and rather different product. Massage is something that most people appreciate for one of more ailments; while various medical experts can help, often, other devices can improve the symptoms at a lesser cost.
In the past the things I have looked at from Oregon have been medical and or Weather Stations. Here I suppose the first the Slimfit 3DPedometer is medicalish. The second is pure entertainment as it is a Wireless Speaker but you could exercise whilst listening to it.

These items seem to develop as the first one I saw was a very basic offering, then a rather nice solar one that even works through the winter with no external power, here an offering that gives barometric readings as well as a UV option.

Like most men I spend a lot of time in trainers for one reason only, they are comfortable, these however are rather different. Like most there are occasions that a notebook needs to travel with me and this bag from STM is also a little different.

With a ‘personal trainer’ costing a fortune and a ‘gym membership’ not a lot less those of us wanting to shed a little weight and trim up a bit have only one method available until now - will power – this little gadget may help.

While it is a part of out body that is used on a regular basis, it sometimes does not get the attention it deserves. Just how clean are your teeth?
To me this is my discovery of the year. One of the items I saw during the ‘Xmas In July’ round of events and if anyone is interested its top of my wish list for Christmas this year. It gave me lots of good workouts during its testing.

Desk or Bladeless Fans

Published in Health and Beauty by paul_smart on Sep 9, 2012
Two more items from Brando in Hong Kong. Who have a huge range of fans available. The first is described as a Desktop Fan and the second as a Bladeless Fan something I have only seen previously from Dyson in a high priced unit.

Sitting in front of a computer is not the best way to get and keep fit. Maybe modern technology can provide a way to improve this situation.

Published in Health and Beauty by paul_smart on Jul 25, 2012
Mio have produced a GPS unit for cyclists rather than motorists, so now we non motorists have a unit that can more normally cope with day to day than trying to adapt a unit designed primarily for the car and lorry driver.

Published in Health and Beauty by adrianmorant on Jul 2, 2012
Without the subtitle Real Science, Great Nutrition, and Good Health to Bruce W Perry’s book Fitness for Geeks I would not have even bothered to look at this most interesting book. It is not just for the fitness fanatic, it is also worth reading by anyone -- even a couch potato -- who is interested in getting or keeping healthy.

Strangely enough I saw this at a launch last year, at the same event the large Kitchen Machine was shown and as that became available first it was reviewed first. Here this little device is for anyone who chops and slices.

Published in Health and Beauty by paul_smart on Jan 30, 2012
Anyone who tends to want fresh juice really should have a juicer as they tend to get far more from items than the manual alternative. This unit claims to get 10% more juice out than other such products; I have tested this over Christmas.

Published in Health and Beauty by paul_smart on Dec 11, 2011
My first thought was good breathe but then everyone would think about the mouth and teeth and keeping them clean. These two products help you to breathe better first one for Asthma and second one to benefit others.

Published in Health and Beauty by paul_smart on Dec 5, 2011
If you own an iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad then this app together with the headband and software can tell you how well you are sleeping. I am perhaps not the best to review this as my sleep patterns are to say the least erratic.

It’s been a while since I have reviewed anything from Philips; I think the last thing was their Sonicare Electric Toothbrush. Here I am looking at their latest battery operated shaver although it is far more than a simple shaver.
Two items for home use although the second could have uses almost anywhere. First a Blood Pressure Cuff for all those who need to keep regular checks. The second is a USB temperature sensor that works and reports it.
