lights_animation_tweened_2

Misfit Shine is a wearable fitness and activity tracker.  It is one of the best looking trackers we’ve seen to date.  The Shine is carved out of a solid block of aircraft grade aluminum and is water resistant to 50m, a designation that sets it apart from other fitness trackers.  It can be clipped to your clothing, worn on your wrist with either a rubber or leather strap, and can even be worn as a necklace. The Misfit Shine is a bit larger than a quarter and is able to track swimming, cycling, and steps taken.  The device can also track sleep and the LEDs can be used as a clock as well. To sync the device, simply place it on top of your phone’s screen. Video after the jump. Buy ($119.95)

Sennheiser PMX 685i SPORTS

The new PMX 685i SPORTS headphones from Sennheiser are exactly what we’ve been looking for to step up our running game.  Running is not the easiest of physical activities, and those that are not in love with the sport can always use a bit of motivation.  Music is a great way to kick oneself into gear and get moving. The problem is most headphones are not designed for running and are either uncomfortable or fall out.  The ones that are made for sports usually sacrifice sound quality for a more athletic design.  The high-output drivers in the PMX SPORTS serve up a healthy dose of natural stereo sound while the in-ear design functions to keep your situational awareness of your surroundings in check. The 685i are comfortable, sweat and water resistant neckband style headphones that are rugged and durable. They can be rinsed off under the faucet to remove grime and perspiration. The monocoque design ensures that the phones will not fall off during activity, something earbuds are notorious for.  Buy($62)

FUBi Folding Bike

FUBi Bike is one of the most compact folding bikes on the market.  The frame itself folds down to fit into a tennis racket bag.  The greatest part is that when the bike is unfolded, it looks like a normal bike and not a compact oddity with tiny wheels.  It can be folded with the wheels connected or detached for an even smaller footprint. FUBi is also configurable with three different wheel sizes; the narrow road rim, the city/gravel rim, and the mountain rim.  This allows the bike to function in a number of environments. FUBi comes in three sizes: 25″, 26″ and 28″. FUBi ships in May for £1,499, but you can order one through their Kickstarter campaign HERE for £989, shipping April 2014.  Continue reading FUBi Folding Bike
