Turn Your iPod or iPhone Into the Ultimate Workout Companion

February 24, 2012 Leave a comment

Take your workouts to the next level with the myTREK armband from Scosche. With the myTREK armband users will get real-time pulse readings and audio prompts while working out to help guide intensity levels. They will also be able to track calories burned, distance traveled, speed, workout duration, progress relative to goals and even map out a running or biking route. This is beneficial because it lets the user know when they are not pushing themselves hard enough as well as when they are over-training. By monitoring intensity levels users can make sure they are working hard enough to achieve training goals and stay motivated by seeing results.

The myTREK armband is able to connect to an iPhone or iPod Touch wirelessly via Bluetooth which means bulky chest straps and wires for measuring a pulse are a thing of the past. The armband contains dual LED optical sensors which send light into the skin and are able to provide a pulse reading while on the move. The way this works is that the myTREK assesses how much light gets through the skin and how much is reflected back to its optical sensor. This then gives an indication of the oxygen saturation of the blood and the frequency of the blood flow from the heart and lungs. Thousands of these readings are taken over several seconds and the myTREK is able to give a pulse reading using algorithms designed to calculate the data. The armband also comes with a remote control pad that will allow the user to control their music because it is connected through Bluetooth. A lithium-ion battery powers the myTREK and gives it up to 5 hours of workout time when fully charged and is easily recharged via an included USB charging cable. Working out around your home? Because the myTREK connects via Bluetooth users can workout up to 33ft away from their phone or iPod Touch and still have data readings sent to it for tracking. The myTREK from Scosche is compatible with the 3rd and 4th generation iPod Touch, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.   Read More

How many times have you pulled into your garage and parked too close to the wall?

February 24, 2012 Leave a comment

The Smarthome Laser Garage Parking System is an inexpensive and easy solution to this common problem. Available in a single laser (for one car garages) or dual laser (for two car garages) models, the Laser Garage Parking System helps you identify the perfect parking spot in your garage each and every time you pull in by simply tracking the laser beam until it hits a pre-selected spot on your dash or hood. The easy-to-install Laser Garage Parking System mounts on your garage ceiling and projects a bright red laser beam toward the garage floor. As your car enters the garage, a motion detector triggers the laser beam to project onto your car’s hood and continues toward the dashboard. You determine the ideal parking spot and match that with where the laser beam projects onto your car.

Tembo Trunks CordCtrl Headphone Cord and Cable Wrap Management System - Black

 

 

Have you ever wondered why your earphones won’t stop making out with your keys, with the headset of your phone or even with itself? Well as a matter of fact, it has more to do with dull science than with passionate love, the tangle phenomenon is closely related to the so-called triangle theory. Most likely it has something to do with the chaos theory – which sounds reasonable considering what the cord tangle looks like and how it feels in your brain when sorting it out.

CordCtrl made of 100% silicone and a lot of affection. Simply wrap the headphone cord around the cordctrl and lock it at both ends by sliding the cord into the slots. It works specifically with the headphones of iPod and any other cords of similar dimensions. Read More
