What the heck is wearable tech? The Martian Victory Voice Command Watch

Hey guys, its Debra your wearable technology girlfriend and general nuisance. Today we’re discussing the Martian Victory Series Voice Command watch. So here we are with another watch that does stuff other than just be a watch. Who just tells time anymore!? BORING!

What the heck is wearable tech? Blast Baseball Precision Motion Sensor

Hey Team! It’s Debra! Your Best Buy Canada Wearable Technology Minx! (Not my official title … YET!) Well, spring is in the air (we hope) and of course that means BASEBALL season starts soon! (My dad told me) So, this week it’s the BLAST Baseball Swing Precision Motion Sensor. The Blast is indeed “wearable technology,” except the person wearing it is a baseball bat. AND—one size fits all! (How often is that true?)  

What the heck is wearable tech? TomTom Golfer GPS Watch

Deb Deb here, blogging about the TomTom—the TomTom Golfer GPS Watch, that is! Also, super sorry I just called myself Deb Deb. I will NEVER do that again.

What the heck is wearable tech? Misfit Beddit

When I asked the team what was up for this week, they said, “BEDDIT”. I responded, “Absolutely. Which guy is ‘IT’?” Beddit, I quickly found out, is a new sleep monitor. Ahem. I always thought a sleep monitor was a creepy roommate, but the good people at Best Buy Canada showed me the light!

What the heck is wearable tech? Garmin Forerunner 10

Debra here, strapping on some more wearable technology! This fitness train cannot be stopped!! This week, it’s the Garmin Forerunner 10 watch. This impressive device is for those who run without being chased, without an oncoming Indiana Jones boulder and/or avalanche—those who actually ENJOY running.  So what did I do with it?  Read on to find out:

What the heck is wearable tech? Keep track of everything with Trackr Wallet

Perhaps you’re like me, or perhaps you’re a “normal” human—either way, you lose stuff. The delightful people at Best Buy Canada (and a cutie-patootie named Chris Herbert, the inventor of TrackR) are showing us technology that will essentially give you a super-robot memory and stop you from losing your mind and ruining your life. This all comes in the form of the TrackR Wallet.

What the heck is wearable tech? Fitbit Charge HR

At first, when my pals at Best Buy Canada gave me the Fitbit Charge HR to try out, I was kind of shocked. I mean, I’ve previously discussed my obsession with my Fitbit—I use it everyday. Am I not exercising enough for you, Best Buy? But then I realized that, as usual, my tech savvy friends are opening my eyes to another life-enhancer! And, although I love my Fitbit, I think I’m IN LOVE with the Charge HR.

What the heck is wearable tech? Part 3: Train your pet using wearables

Hey, it’s Debra again. You don’t want to be THAT neighbour, whose dog has a full-on bark-appaloosa concert every time the wind blows.The wonderful scientists, and general smarty-pants, over at Motorola have now created the MOTOPET 200. It’s a new, gentler system to train dogs using “static correction” using vibrations rather than a shock collar. MOTOPET 200 is lightweight and waterproof and looks cute on almost every dog. Who knows, maybe you can even teach him to Moto-roll-over!

What the Heck is Wearable Tech? Part 2: Wearables are not just for athletes

Hi Gang, Debra here! There comes a point when you just want to scream “WHAT IS A NORMAL WAY TO GET HEALTHY?” Now, the rational part of my brain knows that the best way to get healthy is to simply eat less and move more. (WHO KNEW?!)  But how much do I need to move and not eat? I’m not a doctor—I just like wearing lab coats. I’m a regular human trying to be healthier. SO! My peeps at Best Buy hooked me up with some more of their Wearable Tech. This week I got to try out the new FitBit Charge.  This has changed everything.
