We did talk about the Lechal smart shoes before, charting its beginnings all the way to its emergence in the first quarter of this year. Just to recap, each pair of the Lechal trainers will rely on Bluetooth connectivity in order to guide your way to your destination. This means the visually impaired will also be able to make good use of it, as the shoes emit a discreet vibration […]
Toyota has decided to blur the lines between virtual and real-life car racing, thanks to a brand new accessory for its 86 (which is also called the GT86 and Scion FR-S in select markets) sports car. With the new Sports Drive Logger, drivers are able to record their lap times as well as relevant data, before opting to upload such information to the Gran Turismo 6 video game, so that […]
TomTom has evolved over the years to remain relevant, as churning out dedicated GPS navigation devices alone is not going to cut the mustard. Hence, their foray into the fitness device market has reaped dividends, and they intend to pursue this course of action even further with the TomTom Runner Cardio GPS sport watch. This particular timepiece does not only inform you of the current time, it also comes with […]

Kids are a bundle of energy, joy, and at times, frustration – especially when you are already running late for a particular event, and they are frolicking all over the house – with some of them even indulging in a little bit of hide and seek along the way. And for those moments when you all hit the local mall, it can be quite challenging for a new parent to […]

Apple Maps has not exactly been the most accurate way to get around somewhere which you are not familiar with, as a grandmother in rural Pennsylvania can attest to. In fact, for the past one and a half years, Apple Maps has been sending skiers who rely on their iPhone to get around to her home, rather than the ski lodge which they intended to visit. Basically, Apple Maps would […]
TomTom has already updated its GPS lineup Go series in Europe back in April and today, the company launched the new TomTom Go Series with TomTom Traffic in the US.The most significant update is the total re-thinking and re-design of the user interface, and from the screen shots I saw, it looks really promising: everything looks sleeker and nicer, the color scheme is much more harmonious and all the information […]
Trusting your phone to navigate you through a heavily-populated city is something we’re sure many of us have done as we try our best to follow directions to get to our destination in a timely manner. But what if our clothing could be used to help direct us to our destination? That would help in cutting down how often we stare at our phones, and is exactly what the NAVIGATE […]
Let us face the facts – the world today is not as forgiving or as friendly as it was all those years ago when our grandparents were wee kids, running around the neighborhood without a care in the world. Crime was basically unheard of then, and a murder was a big deal. Well, kidnapping cases have been on the rise over the decades, so what can a parent do on […]
Prior to Google Maps, MapQuest was the king of direction giving, although we’re sure if you used the service, you ended up with directions that were actually less accurate than Apple Maps. Either way, people trusted MapQuest back in the day and the service is now attempting to win back its old users by completely redesigning its mobile apps on iOS and Android.
When it comes to sharing information about yourself to others, this can prove to be a double edged sword. For instance, it does give you a record that you can stash away for posterity to know just where you have been, but on the other hand, it also allows others to know just where you were, and where you are right now – which might spell trouble for your empty […]
Just like fashion, whenever a new season kicks in, there is a change for your wardrobe. In the world of hunting or fishing, it would be new gear that tend to claim you could bring your game to the next level, never mind the fact that your technique and lack of expertise is what’s holding you back. But the marketers do not want to tell you that – no sir, […]

These two models happen to be the lightest, thinnest, and most advanced offerings for runners from Garmin to date, and Garmin claims that if you do not happen to have a personal running coach, either one would make for a pretty decent substitute. First of all, […]
